DJ Yoda has a knack for turning rooms full of perfectly calm and civilised people into a heaving mass of happy, sweaty, partied-out folk. Combining a well-honed beat-heavy DJ set with tongue in cheek visuals mixed live with the music on a cinema-sized screen, DJ Yoda assaults your senses with a killer combination of good humour and infectious party music. Unbeatable in this terrain, DJ Yoda truly is one of the “ten DJs to see before you die” (Q Magazine).

With his star studded ‘Chop Suey’ album out November 5th, DJ Yoda headlines the Kentish Town Forum on Saturday 10th November and A Boy Called George and The Tootsie Rollers are amongst the collaborators confirmed to appear live.

Line up:
A Boy Called George

Electric Minds presents… Ben UFO B2B Jackmaster @ Studio Spaces / Saturday 10th November 2012

TIME AND PLACE:

22:00 – 06:00@ Studio Spaces
Unit 2
110 Pennington Street
London
E1W 2BBTickets: £16.80 Here

electric minds has a reputation of welcoming the new breed of electronic labels, and they’re excited to continue that tradition by welcoming Numbers’ Jackmaster & Hessle Audio’s Ben UFO for an all night B2B session.As well as being the co-founder of Numbers, Jackmaster is one hell of a DJ. He is a man who lives to play records for people and his eclectic sets skip through everything, embracing guilty pleasures and forgotten classics in the same breath as unreleased dubplate heaters. He is steadily building a reputation as a taste-maker within the bastardized swamp of bass-ed out club music, as well as being one of the most emphatic party selectors.

Having become immersed in the still emerging dubstep scenes in London and Leeds in 2005, Ben UFO’s musical taste was shaped primarily by the DMZ and Sub Dub nights taking place in those cities. However, as music tastes have shifted and scenes have fragmented, Ben UFO’s approach to music has developed. His level of commitment to the dance music of the last two decades has led to a collection of records which reflects the position London has held as a city responsible for the constant development of forward thinking music.

This is a rare opportunity to see these DJ’s play together within such an intimate setting. This party will sell out so it is highly advisable to purchase in advance from Resident Advisor.

Lineup:
Ben UFO

After three sell out years at the Edinburgh Festival, highly successful London runs and tours that went down a storm, Tim Key is touring his new show Masterslut, bringing his confused procession of idiosyncratic poetry and prose to venues across Britain.

Tim Key is a 35 year-old (poet comedian and bookwriter) who works in the broad arenas of poetry, comedy, general, film and bookwriting. His first book sold out almost immediately (small print-run) and led to him becoming the resident poet on Charlie Brooker’s Screenwipe (BBC4) and Newswipe (BBC4) shows (ever-so cool). He also became resident poet on Mark Watson’s radio show (Radio 4) and has since gone on to do loads of other cool stuff he has had his poetry published in Vice magazine (niche) and Reader’s Digest (different niche).

Québec Cinema Showcase @ Cine Lumieré / Friday 2nd November – Sunday 4th November 2012

TIME AND PLACE

5 Screenings at various times

@ Cine Lumiere
17 Queensberry Place
South Kensington, SW7 2DT

Tickets £10 / £8 concessions from the Institut Français website

Following the international success of Québécois films including Monsieur Lazhar, Incendies and Café de Flore, a showcase of new cinema from Québec will take place for the first time in London at the Institut Français. Cine Lumieré hosts five feature films over three days, all of which are preceeded by short films.

Opening the showcase on Friday is Starbuck, the UK premiere of Ken Scott’s box-office success. Just when David Wosniak (Patrick Huard) decides to finally take control of his life, this eternal 42 year-old teenager discovers that he’s the biological father of 533 children. Suddenly, his life is much more complicated than he anticipated.

Saturday opens with Karakara, a Canadian/Japanese co-production which follows Pierre (Gabriel Arcand), a retired professor in his early sixties who goes on a short, unsettling trip around Okinawa in Japan with Junko (Youki Kudoh), a 40-year-old runaway wife.

A highlight of the showcase will be Saturday evening’s public reception, with free drinks of Neige (apple ice wine) followed by a screening of Laurence Anyways, the latest offering from Cannes award-winning director Xavier Dolan (I Killed My Mother, Heartbeats). In the 90s, Laurence tells his girlfriend Fred that he wants to become a woman. The film spans 10 years, an epic journey which, unbeknownst to them, may cost Fred and Laurence their love.

Sunday films are Bestiary (Bestiaire) from Denis Côté, an intriguing documentary without dialogue, which reflects on human fascination with animals and  Behind Closed Doors (Catimini) from Nathalie Saint-Pierre. The final film of the weekend, it is a touching story about a reunion between four girls living under the care of the child protection services.
