  1. NYE at Cargo Presents.....DFA vs Horse Meat Disco http://cargo-london.com/event/nye Cargo's not-so-secret love affair with Disco finds its ultimate expression in the biggest date on the calendar. The hottest New York City label, DFA, partner with London soul-mates Warm Collective to host Room 1, whilst the irreverent and always entertaining Horse Meat Disco mount a counter-attack of their own in a specially fitted second room. If you don't dance like a lunatic tonight you better check your pulse, try as hard as you may, you will not find a better Disco line-up this NYE. On the very rare occasions Holy Ghost! arrive on our shores, they leave behind them a trail of sweaty, blissed out people. Criminally overlooked in the UK, this dj pair know how to rock a party with their vibrant and positively uplifting brand of Rock tinged Disco. Brooklyn's Holy Ghost! are Nicholas Millhiser and Alex Frankel. The duo was originally part of the live rap group Automato whose debut was produced by DFA's James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy. Nicholas is also part of Juan Maclean's live band The Juan Maclean. Cargo is proud to have secured their talents for an extra long set this NYE. On the Night..... DFA Holy Ghost!

  2. Click here for Info The Mysterious Five Easy Pieces crew go head to head with Italians Do It Better for a night of stripped down disco and rock. Five Easy Pieces have already surprised us with their varied and brilliant line-ups that have included Nite Jewel, New Look, O. Children, Gold Panda and more. And tonight they've gone and topped that with the excellent Glass Candy, Desire and A Mountain of One all playing LIVE. PART I – FIVE EASY PIECES VS ITALIANS DO IT BETTER Ever evolving, reinventing, ass shaking ushers of early death disco, Glass Candy have travelled from bare bones stripped down honky-tonk disco rock to equal parts digital and analogue, to synthesizer / drum machine heaven with a side of sexy bass and live drums. Always with a giant dose of visual stylized perfection. Johnny Jewel and Ida No have been quietly helming a disco revolution for the last 10 years. Their sound has been called 'Italo' and 'Smack Disco' and sees the dance floor as a place of majesty and mysterious elegance, not a sweaty graveyard of ‘Agadoo' and 'The Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum)'. This is due to Glass Candy's classic song writing and the archaic way of recording (Jewell only uses antique kit while No sings into a hand held mic). Much of B/E/A/T/B/O/X’s sound recalls Giorgio Moroder’s legendary work with Donna Summer and like Moroder, Jewell knows the best dance music has not only rhythm but edge and menace. ‘Digital Versicolor’ mixes ‘I feel Love’ with the theme from John Carpenter’s Halloween while No intones her deadly nursery rhyme-like lyrics over the top. www.myspace.com/glasscandy When Glass Candy was on tour last year, they stumbled into a foggy night club in Montreal and saw a woman singing an entire set of Jean-Pierre Massiera songs. Meet Megan Louis, the crystal clear tenor who sings in French and English over Desire's debut Lp, II. Completely blown away by her voice, Johnny Jewell decided to lock the doors on his Portland Studio and plant his roots in Montreal. ‘I had been working on music for an abstract project called Desire for over two years and was just waiting for the right singer to come along'. Last year the two toured the world as the critically acclaimed disco noir outfit Chromatics, also on the Italians Do It better imprint. 'We wanted to do a new project that had elements of what we were doing in Chromatics, but explore the sound and limitations of pop music'. Desire's music stands right on the line between indie pop and electronic dance music. Without making any promises to either camp, the group deliver the lush melodies and drums to keep everyone hooked. www.myspace.com/primitivedesire A Mountain of One have already been compared to Arthur Lee, Santana and Pink Floyd. Their songs, often 10 minutes long, are slow and meanderingly melodic and their ambition is to make the 21st century Dark Side Of The Moon. www.myspace.com/amountainofone Tickets will fly for this so grab yours here now LIVE: GLASS CANDY + DESIRE + A MOUNTAIN OF ONE DJS: MIKE SIMONETTI 7-12 £10 adv / £12 on the door ___________________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________________ PART II- THE AFTERPARTY At midnight Cargo opens the doors for an afterparty to remember. The much talked about Niyi plays live, followed by a back to back set from Primary 1 and Riton. Pay what you want on the door... BIG! It is easy to forget the progress Niyi has made in the past six years. Shy and softly spoken, he isn't your typical rapper. After ... (more) dropping out of Central Saint Martin's (twice), he started the seminal club Gauche Chic which The Sunday Times said kick started the "New Rave" dressing up craze. The club was attended by the likes of Björk and Gareth Pugh. In 2005 this was the club to dress up in and be seen at. The word regarding Niyi's genre defying, tempo switching and generally odd style of djing quickly spread. Perfectly beat matching surf rock with hardcore-gabba, Niyi's anything goes approach to djing once even managed to clear the dancefloor at Fabric. However, his live sets, a kind of low-end crunk hip hop, are sure to satisfy the more discerning crowds. www.myspace.com/niyi Riton (French slang for Henry) is one very talented man. As a producer, Henry Smithson has released a lot of diverse material, from his well known singles on Get Physical and Souvenir to his new wave remixes of Datarock (Norway), Para One (France) and Simian Mobile Disco (UK). He's even remixed Justin Timberlake. Earlier in the year Riton got together with Primary 1 to concoct the dancefloor bomb Who's There? on Phantasy Records. Now they take their collaboration one step forward from the wheels of steel at the hallowed arches in Cargo. www.myspace.com/ritontime www.myspace.com/primary1 LIVE: NIYI DJS: RITON + PRIMARY1 (BACK2BACK DJ SET) + COUNT CHOCULA 12-3 Pay what you want* *50% of proceedings will go to Amnesty International Click here for Info
  3. Click here for Info Ah, Halloween, the time of the year we all wilfully pretend to ignore the fact this isn't even one of our own holidays just because we can dress up and act all eccentric. Well no one does eccentric like Cargo, and they are going to prove that tonight with a line-up that's bound to turn many heads. Inside out. Member of French hip-hop collective TTC and founder and head honcho of acclaimed label Institubes and its little sister Sound Pellegrino (dance music label of the year hands down), Teki Latex has been producing electro-infected hip hop and spinning the most forward thinking house music we've heard lately. Get ready to bounce! www.myspace.com/tekitek The Wire... unless you live in a cave in the Penines or you are effectively dead, you must have watched or heard about what is undoubtedly the best TV series ever created. As addictive as crack, as engaging as Sir David Attenborough at a dinner party, The Wire has been on everyone's lips for the past three years. So when the Cargo crew heard that the ultra-cool baddie Stringer Bell not only hails from Hackney but is also a badass dj, they didn't wait a second to get him down to play a set. On stage 10 pm sharp. you get me? Sheeeeeeeeeeeit. www.myspace.com/hevlar_recordings NME compared Teeth!!! to a cheeseburger because they are awesome, satisfying and probably not that good for you. With their playful brand of junk-punk, Teeth!!! will knock the proverbial teeth out of you if you aren't careful. To make this a distinct possibility Cargo are putting them in the middle of the dancefloor. So watch out. And pogo. www.myspace.com/teethdance 22 females on stage singing songs about Crows. That's Gaggle. London’s only sci-fi riot choir are unlike anything you've ever heard before. Menacing, enchanting, deeply satisfying, and utterly original. "They look like a bunch on nu rave pre raphelites if you can imagine that and they've all got these amazing technicolour cloaks on. They sound absoloutely wonderful on air but are something you want to experience live" LAUREN LAVERNE - BBC Radio 6 www.myspace.com/gagglespace Don't miss this! On djing duties tonight, a top notch selection of selectors in the shape of the Patchwork Pirates, Upset the Rhythm djs and Sexbeat Djs. Eccentric doesn't even cover it LIVE: TEETH!!! + GAGGLE DJS: Dj DRIIS aka "STRINGER BELL" + TEKI LATEX (SOUND PELLEGRINO) + PATCHWORK PIRATES + UPSET THE RHYTHM DJS + SEXBEAT DJS 7-3 PAY WHAT YOU WANT* *50% of proceedings go to Amnesty International Click here for Info
  4. Click here for Info Allez-Allez dixit: "After a year and half of wandering the city and beyond as djing minstrels we are extremely happy to announce we are starting a new residency from next month in the wonderful Cargo. Under the umbrella of the Kaleidoscope Caravan Club every 2nd saturday will see Allez-Allez take over the venue for our own night happily coinciding with our 3rd birthday. The fun kicks off on the 10th october will a stellar line-up including a Nathan Fake live set, a dj set from the ever wonderful Appleblim and off course our good selves. We are thrilled to be back running a monthly party and have many treats in store for future events. To make things even more exciting Cargo are continuing their recession busting ways by introducing a honesty box policy for saturday night - they are leaving up to you to decide how much to pay to enter the club, and 50% of the money goes to Amnesty International. So stick saturday the 10th october in your diary and starting thinking how much you'd like to pay for Nathan Fake, Appleblim and Allez-Allez!"

  5. Click here for Info 2nd outing for Cargo's Kaleidoscope Caravan Club and the groundbreaking Honesty Box Payscheme. The deal is simple: you pay what you think the night's worth on the door, and half the money goes to Amnesty International. This week curating duties go to the mysterious Five Easy Pieces crew, and they couldn't have done a better job of it: a line-up that is exciting, ecclectic, and most importantly, great quality music. Just how it should be. "Nite Jewel is the alter ego of one Ramona Gonzalez". So starts this great interview in FACT Magazine with the brains behind this LA based trio, in which we learn how they hooked up with no pain in pop for the release of their LP Good Evening, why Nite Jewel only record on 8-track, and Ramona's various art side-projects. Nite Jewel's music is hard to categorise, which in itself is a good thing. If you put a gun to my head and forced me to pigeonhole their music the words electronica, disco, dreampop, and ambient would certainly be summoned, but Nite Jewel is much more than the sum of these parts. Check them out here, then come to their London debut gig and album launch for Five Easy Pieces at Cargo, and then go out and buy their album. The Golden Filter have remixed the likes of Cut Copy, Little Boots, Empire of the Sun, Polly Scattergood, and Peter Bjorn and John; so you can guess from the outset that they have good taste. Listen to their own productions, and the speculation turns into gold solid fact. Driven by punchy disco drums and driving disco basslines, and beautifully adorned by lovely chords and angelic girl vocals, their sound is not one you are likely to forget once you've set ears on it. Get ready for some utterly beguiling lo-fi disco action tonight. And we come to the all important peak time dj. You know, the one who has to effing smash it. And the honours tonight go to Parisian neon-electro producer slash dj Mikix the Cat. His releases on Trouble & Bass have been devastating dancefloors all accrossthe world. But these pale in comparison with his ridiculously energetic dj sets. You need to see to believe... and sweat like a bastard in the process. Often compared to The Field, Gold Panda makes dreamy glitch electronica from his bedroom studio. Drawing from a whole universe of influences, his music crosses boundaries and appeals to heads of all persuasions. Already chosen by Simian Mobile Disco and Various Production as tour companions, Gold Panda is one to watch. And watch him you can, tonight, at Cargo. Five Easy Pieces has a new resident dj. He goes by the name Count Chocula and has the best collection of wigs in the world. That's all we are allowed to say.

  6. Tonight we launch the all-new Honesty Payscheme. The deal is simple: you pay what you think the night's worth on the door, and half the money goes to Amnesty International. We are happy to announce Magistrates have just confirmed an exclusive live show for this night! Alexander Robotnick has had a long and colorful history, including scoring films in the eighties and joining a world music troupe in the nineties, but he's most celebrated for his pioneering electro tracks such as ‘Problèmes D'Amour' from 1983. His energetic dj sets are the stuff of legend, one he is happy to extend at the tender age of A LOT. EXCLUSIVE ALERT! If you grew up in the '80s and had even the smallest of passing interest in music, particularly club music, chances are you were very familiar, albeit unwittingly, with the work of the legendary John Morales. On the radio, in the record racks and most importantly on the dancefloor John's work helped define an era and influence future generations of DJs, producers and artists with a slew of seminal disco re-edits for artists such as Tina Turner, the Rolling Stones, Spandau Ballet, Aretha Franklin or Jocelyn Brown to name but a few! This will be his first UK appearance in over 10 years, and that's A LOT! Neon Indian are a guy and a girl who make music via correspondence. One in Brooklyn, one in Austin. An elusive new project from composer Alan Palomo (Ghosthustler, VEGA), and, rumour has it, either one of the Telepathe girls or Lezza from Gang Gang Dance, Neon Indian deliver equal parts synthetic nostalgia, Dreampop lullabies, and grinding guitar noise to create something eerier than the sum of its parts. Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, their music are the result of field recordings, record samples and a collection of bizarre synth sounds. Neon Indian's bedroom ballads have already forged the EP Psychic Chasms, released this summer. They've been compared to New Order, Future Bible Heroes, a sun-drenched MGMT, and most recently said to sound like a saw-wave cutting a Doobie Brother's song in half. Expect much racket to be had from this fresh faced crew. This will be their London debut, and that's A LOT. The Chap are an experimental pop band from London who play a mix of rock and pop with small quantities of almost every other genre thrown in for good measure. They're known for their energetic live shows which often end with exploding violins and cellos. In early 2006 they toured Europe to support their 2nd album "Ham" which gained much critical acclaim, including an album of the month in The Wire magazine. This will be a great chance to catch one of their very rare London shows, and that means A LOT. The French Horn Rebellion is Robert and David Perlick-Molinari. They grew up in Milwaukee, WI. There, as tiny tots, they learned how to shovel snow and build igloos. These skills became incredibly useful when they decided to take a magical trip to Antarctica. And one cold night, they made dance music that would make their booties shake so that they could stay warm. (They did it so well they ended up producing MGMT's first album). And that is how it came to be. Something something A LOT. Dj support on the night come courtesy of BBE's own boogie-licious Jesper Christiansen and Modular djs. No, I'm not saying it again. LIVE: MAGISTRATES + NEON INDIAN + THE CHAP + FRENCH HORN REBELLION DJS: ALEXANDER ROBOTNICK + JOHN MORALES + JESPER CHRISTIANSEN + MODULAR DJS 8-3 pay what you want* *50% of proceedings go to Amnesty International
  7. Click here for more information. Cargo presents Kaleidoscope Caravan Club. Starting on the 19th of September Cargo will introduce a novel approach to Saturday admission charges: the "Honesty Box Payscheme". Under this scheme, there will be no fixed cover charge on the door.* Rather, Cargo will let the punters decide how much the night's entertainment is worth to them. So who wins with the scheme? The short answer is: everyone. The punters will get to pay a fair price on the door, the bands will reap the rewards of their hard work directly from the fans, and Cargo gets to donate 50% of the total takings to a named charity of its choice (plus have a packed club every Saturday night, of course). Clearly such a scheme will rely heavily on having entertainment worth paying for. And that's where the Kaleidoscope Caravan Club comes in: a brand new Saturday night promotion brought to you by the team that have established Free Fridays as a London clubbing institution. Kaleidoscope Caravan Club aims to bring back the sparkle to Shoreditch's Saturday nights by hand-picking the most exciting bands and djs around. No filler. Such a ground-breaking scheme deserves to go off with a bang so there will be not one, but two launch nights: Saturday 19th of September 2009 LIVE: JOAKIM & THE DISCO + KELPE DJS: JOAKIM + THE INVISIBLE + NADIA KSAIBA + TIGERSUSHI DJS + 20JAZZFUNKGREATS Saturday 26th of September 2009 LIVE: NEON INDIAN + THE CHAP + FRENCH HORN REBELLION DJS: ALEXANDER ROBOTNICK + JOHN MORALES + JESPER CHRISTIANSEN + MODULAR DJS No lie. * Unless you are on the guestlist, in which case there will be a minimum donation, which will go to the charity in its entirety.

  9. Click here for more details. The dance-punk enthusiasts at DFA Records, home to the likes of The Juan Maclean and Hercules and Love Affair will be staging their first official DFA Party since James Murphy (co-founder) curated Matter in Oct 2008. So you know what that means... that this is a night you definitely do not want to miss! Marcus Lambkin, aka Shit Robot, (the name arose from Murphy's pretty shitty/poor attempt to draw a robot), will be heading the night with his signature acid house and electro beats. His new and much anticipated 12" vinyl ‘Simple Things (Work It Out)' has been embraced with much love from those at Boomkat and Phonica, who claim his ‘steady heart-throbbing bass line and array of startling acidic sounds is an elegant yet gritty array of synthetic genius.' Not bad for an ex-cabinet maker, eh? Following will be the electro-tastic duo, Mock & Toof. Releasing ‘Underwater' last year with the DFA, the Tiny Sticks and M&T Inc. label founders unleashed a storm with this disco-pop track. Further upholding the DFA disco to dance-punk policy, Jacques Renault will take to the decks one more time, mixing up his unique sound to the needs of his audience. It seems he's not just a pretty face... And finally, Justin Miller will close the night with a seamless bout of tunes that will make you wish that everyday were a DFA PARTY! DJS: SHIT ROBOT + MOCK & TOOF + JACQUES RENAULT + JUSTIN MILLER 6-3 Free b4 11, £5 after Click here for more details.
  10. Click here for more details. Launched in 2006 as an attempt to get free records and jump queues, Slutty Fringe has grown wildly and uncontrollably ever since. Renowned for it's quality music, shabby journalism and bare bones style, the Fringe has somehow become the first port of call for many a clued up music lover seeking their next hit. Having spent the past twelve months travelling the world playing records, throwing their own roadblock parties in London, launching a record label and generally enjoying themselves a bit too much, the old blog was starting to look a little tired and in need of some love. To that end this Saturday you are cordially invited to Cargo for the launch party of Slutty Fringe 2.0. where kicking things off in the yard with a BBQ for all meat lovers, Slutty Fringe's John & Tony will be on hand to ease us into the night with a mix of tropical disco, yacht rock and generally smooth sounds before the action heads indoors for three bands guaranteed to rock your espadrilles. First among equals tonight is the wonderful Grovesnor, a man who sounds like Lionel Richie produced by Hot Chip, he's really that good. As a special treat tonight he will be playing alongside his brand spanking new 6 piece band. Next up are I Haunt Wizards, who might not have been born in the eighties but still do a good job of channeling the decade of fluoro toweling socks and deely boppers with their slick electro pop, and finally we have Brighton's smoothest sons Kinema, who sound like they learned their lesson well whilst serving as deck hands on Duran Duran's pastel coloured yacht. Finally kicking the night into overdrive we have two of the finest DJs to be found in all of London today, Trevor Jackson really should need no introduction as a producer, designer, DJ, or record label boss. from his seminal Output Label, through to his own releases as Playgroup or his iconic sleeves for the likes of Soulwax, he's done it all and at the highest of levels. Joining Trevor on the decks is the wonderful Leo Zero, sometime member of cult East End prog-psyche-balearic-disco masters A Mountain of One, and whose solo album 'Acid Life' is easily one of this summer's best new releases. LIVE: GROVESNOR + I HAUNT WIZARD + KINEMA DJS: TREVOR JACKSON + LEO ZERO 7-3 Free b4 11, £5 after Click here for more details.
  11. Click here for more details. From the producers of Britney's grammy-winning ‘Toxic,' Pontus Winnberg and Kristian Carlsson (aka Bloodshy & Avant) team up with American Andrew Wyatt as Miike Snow. The Swedish electro-pop group take inspiration from the sickly brilliant Japanese director, Takashi Miike and add an extra ‘i' to their name for that ever so necessary distinguishing mark (yeah no its not a typo...). Fortunately, however, they also distinguish themselves musically with a pleasing combination of harmonious melodies, electro beats and evocative, melancholic lyrics, making this new age pop group something definitely worth checking out. The Heavy are a curious band hailing from Noid, which is actually in Bath and not in some faraway, intergalactic space, who dare to cross all frontiers that exist in the music world, mixing up funk, rock, soul, indie, garage and punk to produce an eclectic and unique sound that surprisingly works and actually sounds really good. It sounds real good. Next are the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Need an explanation? Well my writing skills are no match for the adept Brachosaurus or the Carnotaurus Caudipteryx, so I guess I'll leave it to them... ‘RRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH A time machine was sent back to just before all the dinosaurs went BOOOOOOOM!!! and died. horribly. and they said "RRAAAGH listen up future kids. we got the big tunes." and they sorted us out with a few dubplates. prehistoric dubplates made of granite. using the latest in free software the "big tunes" have begun to be uncovered and are ready for your listening. Listen.' And the world has indeed been listening... TEED have been playing non-stop at both shows and festivals alike since they recently released their EP ‘All in One Sixty Dancehalls' on Greco-Roman. They've already visited Cargo twice but seeing as these dinosaurs are not just your ordinary dinosaurs (they're totally enormous extinct dinosaurs!), we've invited them back as we, and most of the Homo sapiens race, just can't get enough of them. So its definitely worth coming down and seeing these prehistoric masterminds in the flesh (or better said, in their ridiculously genius suits) as their dance-electro grooves will also get you moving like its the year -160 000 000 000! DJing will be Tronik Youth spinning out disco, Goldierocks mixing up indie and electro and last but not least, Cargo's very own resident nosferatu ... COUNT CHOCULA! LIVE: MIIKE SNOW + THE HEAVY + TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS DJS: TRONIK YOUTH + GOLDIEROCKS + COUNT CHOCULA 8-3 FREE ENTRY Click here for more details.
  12. Click here for more details. Finally, The Juan MacLean's highly anticipated sophomore album. The Future Will Come, will be performed in London by the band presented by Magic and Medicine in association with Cargo. Unabashedly emotional, both in lyrically and musically, it's difficult not to let each song take over your head and body, turning you into the dancing, breathing robot Juan MacLean and Nancy Whang (of LCD Soundsystem) With the help of DFA label mates Gerry Fuchs (formerly of !!!) and Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel (Holy Ghost!), The Future Will Come features both 2008 club hits, "The Simple Life" and "Happy House", along 8 other blessed out tracks that are sure to soothe your soul in these trying times. If ever there was a musical act guaranteed to put a smile on your face, The Juan MacLean is it! In fact, so confident of their intent and ability to bring joy to the world, they actually called their latest dance jam "Happy House," which nobody could dispute. The track had music lovers and reviewers here and in the US "drooling like babies"( The Fader) and Pitchfork noting that the song's "dozen never-wasted minutes" were "happy and housey as all get out." The Juan MacLean recently released a remix EP for "One Day" (available both digitally and on vinyl), featuring remixes by Mark Romboy, The Emperor Machine and Surkin. LIVE: THE JUAN MACLEAN + SPECIAL GUESTS DJS: TBA 7-1 £8 advance And if you thought that was it... you would be very, very wrong! Click here for more details.
