decks: Madam X, Emily Rawson (pic), Radi Dadi, and Sian Anderson
Sian Anderson presents the This Is Not A Rave first birthday party. The night is hosted by Julie Adenuga and features Madam X, Emily Rawson, Radi Dadi and Sian Anderson.
When Sian Anderson isn't planning world domination, she's a Marketing Manager at Atlantic Records, a Director at SighTracked and, of course, dropping bangers for days! With a new 1Xtra show on Wednesday nights and having recently blessed sets for Topman and the SBTV x SighTracked boat party in Outlook festival, it would be only fair that she drops an exclusive mix at TINAR's one-year anniversary.
After smashing her sets at our previous parties, we had to bring Madam X back! Known for her swift choppy mixing technique and a liking for dark, grimey sounds, she's recently played festivals such as Outlook, Exit, Reading to name a few. She effortlessly connects the sounds of boogie, grime, R&B, garage, electrofunk and more, with energy and surprises guaranteed.
Somewhere in between running Bounty (one of London's hottest monthly clubs), playing everywhere from galleries to festivals and being a poster girl for Nike Sportswear, Radi Dadi destroys dance floors everywhere with a heavy-hitting selection of '90s hip hop and R&B, New Jack Swing and garage. Oh, and she's also called upon to support artists including Frank Ocean, Diplo, Wretch 32 and Chipmunk!
Having created 'Supa Dupa Fly' and 'Rock The Belles,' performing at Lovebox festival and BBC Radio 1's Hackney Weekend, Emily Rawson is one of the UK's most in-demand DJ's. In addition to that, Emily ranks Kanye West, Jazzy Jeff and Outkast's Big Boi among the artists she has DJed for. Not too shabby, eh?
Plus there's a special guest PA (but we can't reveal who it is just yet).
9pm-2am, £7 on the door and £5 advance from sightracked.fatsoma.com

Guesswork (Juicebox) join Conor Wheeler (pic, Nineteen89)
LDN LUVS is a new monthly live night at set up by Conor Wheeler (of Paradise) with the intention of showcasing future talent from across the musical spectrum and bringing it into the beating heart of west London.
We are hosting a special one-off Halloween pre-party where we'll have Space DJ regular Oliver Moon (a resident DJ at Carl Cox's Music Is Revolution night at Space and the son of Matthew 'Bushwacka' of Layo & Bushwacka, fact fans) providing the upfront house vibes.
Juicebox regular Guesswork and LDN LUVS resident Conor Wheeler will join Oliver on the night spinning anything and everything from phat bass breaks and twisted techno to the 'Monster Mash' and maybe, just maybe, the zombie disco stomper that is 'Thriller'...
Fancy dress is optional but let's face it - who doesn't like to dress up right?
8pm-2am; Free before 9.30pm, £3 before 10.30pm, £5 after
