A unique late-night dance music party set across the floor of The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall, bringing together live bands and DJs from across the world.
Juan MacLean is a mainstay on dance-punk label DFA Records (also home to LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip) and founder of the New York dance band The Juan MacLean. Touring internationally as a DJ, MacLean released a compilation for !K7's prestigious DJ-Kicks series in 2010.
Playing a new live set especially for this occasion are Kompakt Records' Matias Aguayo and Daniel Maloso performing as Coméme, the special band project of Aguayo that brings together techno, house and the sounds of a Latin American street party.
Joining them are New York band The Hundred in the Hands (Warp), blending a unique balance of synth, disco and French pop influences. This will be their only UK date for 2011 as part of their European tour. Becoming a household name through regular residencies at Bugged Out and Fabric, London-based DJ Stopmakingme opens the show.
The first in a season of special late-night club events produced in association with trouble tune, launched in the run-up towards Ether festival, Southbank Centre's annual festival of innovation in music, art and cross-arts experimentation.
