For those of you reading this at work: the weekend ain't over yet, snitches. Many of you will have Tuesdays bookmarked as Hearthrob night, but they're going early this week to accomodate a dude who we'd postpone Christmas to see. Even if you don't listen to SINDEN's UK radio show or have the funds to fly over the pond to catch his resident sets at Fabric, you've probably encountered his remixes, sets, image, and likeness on this blog and many others (those Mad Decent guys, for example, are obsessed). His Counterfeet label, with Dave "Switch" Taylor, is runnin' thangs.
And, of course, he's now MIA's DJ. Really, we tried to put that part off as long as we could. But now that it's out there, we expect to see hipsters in spades.
If there's a line out the door at M-sex, walk a little down the street. On any other Monday, we'd be directing you to the Enormous Room, where tonight's "Beat Research" is also awesome: our friend Brian Coleman, of Check the Technique fame, is holding down the early set with "beats culled from his Vinyl Dungeon . . . A Random Pantload of Ill '80s Hip-Hop Instrumentals. Subheadline: a Tribute to Leccos Lemmo, the Dub Hop Show and the man called Magnus." Science!
