You'll be glad summer's nearly over.
August 6, 2015, 10:50am

Yes it's August, but for most of the country it is also raining. Your holidays are probably now nothing more than a few Instagrams and some Euro's rattling around in the front pocket of your rucksack. We've got a month or so left, but face it. It is probably time to start considering exactly how you are going to deal with the inevitable reality that summer is going to end. If only someone could announce a series of events run out of our nation's capital that are seeking to bring together the best and most influential labels and artists in electronic music with some of London's most revered venues. What's that? They have? Pretty weird coincidence considering the specificity of the question I just asked, but go on, tell me more…


The Clock Strikes 13, a new series dreamt up by the minds behind Hydra, have just revealed a lineup stretching from October to December that is bringing nights from the likes of Ninja Tune, XL, Principe, Astral Black, Planet Mu and so many more, to some of the best venues in London. The idea behind the series is to showcase the diversity of the ever evolving underground in 2015, so expect a meticulously curated journey through techno, grime, house, hip-hop, bass, and everything in between. Given the names behind each night, we have no doubt the lineups will be completely next level. The full list of dates are below.
