Trentemoller pulls out of Field Day

Danish producer Trentemøller has pulled out of Australia's Field Day festival, which is still due to go ahead on New Year's Day.

This is yet another setback for the festival, who only a few weeks back were dealt the blow that Roger Sanchez had cancelled. Trentemøller was extremely vague when giving his reasons for cancelling, stating that “serious personal issues” were the factor that led him to that decision. Personal issues concerning what, we're not sure. RA will keep you updated if anything further is announced regarding this.

It isn't all doom and gloom for Field Day, however, as they've got a raft of new acts that have been added to the bill. Pop-princess Ladyhawke joins JD Samson of Le Tigre and German tech-house DJ Oliver Huntemann on the line-up, whilst The Bag Raiders will also play live.

Juan Maclean launches new live project

Juan Maclean will be performing a special audio/visual live show at Berlin's Scala on Thursday 20th November.

His 'Love Acid' project is a collaboration with Alison Childs, who is the resident video artist for the Berlin's Donuts night. Dubbed as a "psychedelic visual live acid disco house party", Juan will provide a set of live analogue audio which will be supplemented by Childs' video projections. Fellow DFA artist Gavin Russom will also be performing live under his Black Meteoric Star guise, lugging his bank of machines over to Scala to provide a set of dark and psychedelic acid. As if that wasn't enough, both Plastique De Rêve and Juan Maclean will DJ at what's sure to be one of the hottest parties happening in Berlin this week.

Groove Magazine celebrate 19th birthday

Groove turn 19 this December, and to celebrate they're throwing four parties in Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Frankfurt.

Being Groove, they haven’t pulled any punches as far as assembling their line-ups, attracting some of the biggest names around in the underground electronic music scene. Berlin's Watergate venue is where the celebrations begin, and they've got an all-star line-up of Ricardo Villalobos, Michael Mayer and Apparat. (Warp's latest African signing Mujava also plays his debut Berlin show there.)

Groove take the party to Hamburg's NeibKlub the night after, where guests include Carl Craig, Radio Slave, Shed and Stefan Goldmann. Just as you think that things can't really get more impressive, they're keeping their stamina up and travelling to Munich, where they've lured Isolee into playing live, supported by Âme, Christian Prommer and Radio Slave yet again. Three events in three days—surely that's enough for the Groove guys?

Seemingly not, as the following weekend sees them take over two adjoining Frankfurt clubs in the same night, opening both up to create a massive three-room party. The legendary Robert-Johnson club will host a live set from the Arto Mwambé project, as well as DJ sets from Dixon and Ewan Pearson. It's next door neighbour is MTW, which will see turns on the decks from Luke Slater, Marcel Dettmann, Federico Molinari whilst Johnny D and Modeselektor will also play live.

With parties as enticing as this being thrown for their 19th birthday, who knows what they're going to do next year for their 20th?

BPM Festival announces initial line-up

January's BPM Festival has announced the initial names on its line-up, including current RA podcaster Lee Burridge and Damian Lazarus.

BPM takes place in the Playa del Carmen region, which is located on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. Of course, they'll be making the most of the tropical location, hosting daytime beach parties for each of the ten days before moving the music into the clubs with a load of top DJs. The full bill is yet to be revealed, but they have currently announced that Lee Burridge, Sander Kleinenberg, Damian Lazarus, Steve Lawler and M.A.N.D.Y. will all be making appearances.

The festival runs from January 2nd-11th, so if you need to wash those New Year's blues away with some sun, sand, sea and beats, there are worse places to be than BPM.

Snowbombing announce initial line-up

Austria's Snowbombing festival is now one of the biggest events in the festival calendar, and it has just released its line-up for 2009's bash.

As with previous years, the line-up has an incredibly wide range of acts for your delectation. Whether you're into house, techno, disco, dubstep or drum & bass, there'll be plenty for you to check out over the course of the week long event. The organisers have got their cheque book out and managed to secure Fatboy Slim for a rare headline set, while elsewhere you can hear DJ sets from Grandmaster Flash, James Zabiela, Claude VonStroke, Nic Fanciulli, Greg Wilson, Reverso 68, Lindstrøm, Chase & Status, High Contrast, Skream, Benga and many others. For those sick of seeing DJs, the live line-up is bigger than ever this time around, with artists booked including Dizzee Rascal, Beardyman and The Whip.

There's so much going on during the week that it doesn't seem like there'll be much time for anyone to go skiing. Just make sure that you don't inadvertently go whizzing down a slope after a few too many!

Judge Jules and Gilles Peterson don their pirate duds

Judge Jules and Gilles Peterson are set to ride the seven seas this weekend as part of the Chuff Chuff party.

The duo, and a host of other DJs, will be manning the decks for the epic 16-hour shindig set to go off in the Midlands at Alton Towers. And, as if the name didn't tip you off, there's going to be a bit of a theme to all of this. As a result, you should expect to see Judge and Gilles breaking out their best pirate costumes and, if you want to fit in, you'll most likely have to have your own as well.

That'll be easier than you think, though, as Alton Towers offers a nice little hotel accommodation package, including spa suites and water park availability for those not in the clubbing mood. Act fast, though, and be ready to call in sick for Monday. Our excuse? Scurvy, of course.

Warp set to release On The Hour

Warp are set to release both series of Chris Morris' early 90s radio show, On The Hour, on November 24th.

The show, originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in the early '90s, was a satire on the way that the news is presented to us through the modern media. As well as being the first appearance of Steve Coogan's now famous Alan Partridge character, the show was later adapted into a TV news format for Morris' The Day Today show.

Previously the only commercial release of the show was a double cassette that contained just two of the six hours of broadcasted material. This was due to a legal dispute with co-writers Stewart Lee and Richard Herring, as all of the parts that they'd had a hand in writing were chopped out of that release. It seems like this has all been resolved now, as Warp are set to release the entire two series as two 4xCD boxsets. Those who can't wait for Morris' forthcoming satire on Jihadi Muslims (one that Morris has even learned Arabic to try and tackle) would be well advised to check this comprehensive collection out.

Warp will release On The Hour on November 24th.

Richie Hawtin headlines The End

M_nus boss Richie Hawtin is set to headline The End on Saturday 27th December.

Unless he gets booked to play again before the West London club closes its doors for good on 24th of January (which is not impossible, but unlikely), this will be the last time that you'll have the chance to see Hawtin at The End. M_nus will be taking over the main room with Richie taking the headlining slot, with a supporting cast yet to be announced. After the disastrous sound problems that plagued the main room of the Contakt event at SEOne, fans will be thankful that M_nus' next visit to the capital will take full advantage of The End's more than adequate soundsystem.

The night won't be all bleepy minimal techno, however, as Layo and Mr C will be playing all night in the AKA Bar. With the club closing less than a month after this event, you can be sure that the two co-owners will be making the most of their time left in the venue.

Circuit party all night long

London club night Circuit have announced a new afterparty for clubbers that haven't partied enough come 4am, starting off this coming Sunday morning.

Their new venture, entitled Circuit AM, will take place straight after their regular night at Home, starting this weekend. Situated just around the corner from Home, the venue for Circuit AM will be the cosy Platinum club, which will open until 11am each Sunday. Mulletover's Geddes will be the first to make the most of the night's extended hours, with appearances later this month from Secret Sundaze resident Giles Smith, Luna City Express and Afrilounge.

RA release advice: November 2008

In the fast-paced climate of electronic music, it's sometimes difficult to find out exactly when your favourite artists have their latest releases out. And there's nothing more annoying than buying your monthly fix of vinyl, only to have something you really wanted hit the stores the day after you've put through your order. That's why we at RA have decided to give you a list of upcoming albums and singles so you can keep on top of everything that's being put out on a month-to-month basis.

Of course, while we've tried our best to keep all the information as accurate as possible, delays may mean that the release dates aren't 100% correct so keep that in mind when browsing. It isn't a comprehensive list of everything coming out; more of a selection of key releases for the month. That said, any label/artist who doesn't see their particular release in this list, should feel free to e-mail us at pressreleases AT residentadvisor.net to get their tunes listed for this and upcoming months. (Enterprising music geeks should feel free to do the same!) And anyone looking for release advice should bookmark this space: We'll keep it updated throughout the month.

The Final Stink at T Bar Monday 8th December

As T Bar prepares to shut its doors for the last time we can announce the final reincarnation of Stink, the infamous Monday night session that brought the elite players of underground club music under one roof in East London.

Stink was born during an infamous after-hours involving two of techno leading figures, Damian Lazarus and Michael Mayer (label heads of Crosstown Rebels and Kompakt) and a poolside of guests that were subjected to their musical treats.

The monthly Monday parties brought together an ensemble of the label’s friends and family, welcomed global talents and new faces. A series of all-day bank holiday events witnessed queues from mid-afternoon, dress-up shenanigans and a room full of lost clubbers in the maze at our ‘Get Lost’ party.

Pet Shop Boys set for Brits honour

Pet Shop Boys have been confirmed as the winners of the Outstanding Contribution Award at the 2009 Brit Awards.

Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe formed the group in 1981, and have since had 22 Top 10 hits and four No.1 singles.

A statement from Ged Doherty, Chairman of the Brits committee said: “Since their first Brit Awards over 20 years ago, Neil and Chris have produced a fantastic body of work with songs that truly were the soundtrack to a whole generation’s lives.

“The Pet Shop Boys have since become one of the most influential groups of the modern era and are deserving recipients of the award.”

Previous winners of the prize include Oasis, Tom Jones, Paul Weller and Sir Paul McCartney.

Earlier this month, it was rumoured that Simon Cowell would be this year’s recipient of the prize.

The 2009 Brit Awards will take place at London’s Earls Court on 18 February.
