A stroke of genius from FACT magazine has brought J.O. and Ramadanman together for what will an outstanding night of music. The FACT night will take place on Friday 3rd December at the Shoreditch Club XOYO (32-37 Cowper St, London, EC2A), doors from 9pm-3am. Tickets are £8 students/advance, £1o on the door. In addition to the headline set from J.O. and Ramadanman, there will be appearances from Fantastic Mr Fox (expect Jamie XX dubplates), LHF (Keysound), Jam City, Dark Sky as well as the FACT DJ's. Brilliant support. Not quite J.O. and Ramadanman, but the promise of Fantastic Mr Fox and the elusive Jam City (his 'Refixes' EP released on white label earlier in the year is one of the top 12" from 2010 in my opinion) should also entice.
The headline set will persuade most alone. This may be one of the only times you'll ever have the opportunity to see the artists of 2010 play back to back, something which can't be avoided. J.O. may even drop the wonderful 'kissmequik' if we're very lucky, and if he does the £10 door fee will be instantly defined a bargain. Peter O'Grady meets David Kennedy. Yes please. Here are 3 reasons to be at XOYO on 03.12.10.
