Dan Curtin

Two tips this week because this is my column and you can’t tell me what to do. There are a couple of things happening close to my heart and I don’t want to have to choose. So we’ve got Dan Curtin at the Hoxton Basement, plus it’s Egg’s birthday weekend.

Artefacts 001 with Dan Curtin Live & Truly Madly
The very first in the Artefacts series sees one of techno and house music’s seminal artists Dan Curtin headline. Putting on a first-time exclusive live performance of his classic Peacefrog material and from his own Metamorphic label material, this could be totally amazing. Curtin is one of the reasons I got into electronic music – check out this 1994 Peacefrog techno classic (still got that album on CD).

Friday 5 May, Hoxton Basement. 12-18 Hoxton Street, N1 6NG, 11.30pm-6am, £15-£17.50. More info here.

Egg Birthday Weekender
This Kings Cross club continues to go from strength to strength and celebrates its birthday this weekend with two massive nights – Erick Morillo on Friday, and then Green Velvet on Saturday. Wow. As if that weren’t enough, there are plenty more great names on the bill over the two nights, including Roog, Enrico Sangiuliano and Tobi Neumann.

Friday 5 May and Saturday 6 May, Egg London, 200 York Way, Kings Cross, London, N7 9AP, 11pm-7am, £10-20. More info here.
