Blackout is an irreverent, irregular pop-up party organised in collaboration with our fellow Manc party stalwarts Funkademia. We are proud to welcome Back To Basics resident, Chemical Brothers tour DJ and all-round twinkly Yorkshire demi-god James VolumePills ‘Boggy’ Holroyd on SAT 26TH NOV. James will be bringing a bag of foot-stompers, ass-thwompers and head-melters from the far reaches of his intergalactic record collection, guaranteed to make you dance your legs down to bloody stumps. We know this is going to be a totally sold-out orgy of pure rave abandon. So don’t fuck about, get your early bird ticket now, like.

Friend of El Diablo’s and much-feared Captain of the Ship of Foolishness Felix Dickinson sent us this new 12″ by Jamie Blanco, out on his Cynic label this week. It’s a soaring acid-drenched odyssey peppered with Robotnik rimshots and layers of strobing synths – the kind of record that grabs you by the scruff of the semenax works neck in the opening seconds and spits you out grinning like a simpleton six minutes later. The flip is a more potent, minimal affair with a groove to kill for and an eerie little vocal – a starker example of why 808 plus 303 will always equal:

Back in 2007, Paper Recordings mainstay Ben Davis (Flash Atkins) put together The Bionics, a studio-bound side project with Crazy P’s Danielle Moore and Tim Davies. They released the ‘Solid Silver’ album, which tickled the fancies of nu-disco heads and deep-housers alike, with lead track ‘Love Chains’ causing a particular stir. Now, to celebrate the re-launch of the much-missed Paper, Ben has re-released ‘Love Chains’ with a plethora of remixes from likes of Max Essa, Greg Wilson and our own Neil Diablo. Neil’s version of the track is a creeping discoid slow-burner that creates the perfect space for Dani’s confessional vocals and his trademark ominous synth pads.  It’s one of his strongest productions to date, and oozes that butterflies-in-your-stomach early doors El Diablo’s vibe.

Fresh from a hectic summer of European beach festivals and pop-up parties, Neil Diablo returns with another super-limited hand-stamped 12″ of ‘Evil K’neil’ edits, guaranteed to make your dancefloor go from naught to ‘WOOOOAH!’ in sixty seconds.  First up we get a subtly nipped and tucked version of the Harari classic ‘Party’. You’ll recognise it as an El Diablo’s  favourite – it’s the one that sounds like Hot Chocolate coming up on Mitsubishis laura san giacomo pokies at the Loft. Flip to find Patrick Cowley’s 1981 banger ‘Get A Little’ – a synth-disco anthem that won’t take no for an answer, presented here with neatened tempo and trademark ‘K’neil’ heft.

A ‘break glass in emergency’ record for epic nights out or naughty nights in, ‘To Rack and Ruin Vol 2′ is available now from Piccadilly Records. But blink, motherfuckers, and you will miss it.

FRI 18th NOV 10PM ‘TIL 4AM

Following a global festival tour and the recent release of their critically-lauded ‘When We On’ album, disco infiltrators and darlings of Radio 1 Crazy P stop off at Soup Kitchen, M1 to kiss the turf, high-five their homies and lay six hours of flawlessly orchestrated dancefloor drama on an adoring home crowd. The Crazy P Soundsystem show is a throbbing headrush of a ride through deep disco, sweet soul and cinematic house, impeccably chauffeured by Ms. Danielle Moore – a performer who can drive the toughest of audiences into a lurching, sweaty frenzy with her wardrobe alone. Dani will be flanked, as always, by her absurdly handsome co-conspirators James Baron and Chris ‘Hot Toddy’ Todd, with Master of Ceremonies Neil Diablo bringing up the rear.

Don’t miss the opportunity to clamber aboard this most unruly of party buses and witness Crazy P at the height of their powers.

Tickets are a mere six quid and can be procured in advance from Skiddle here.

See you on the dancefloor.
