Jacques Greene, Skull Juice, Lower

In the Dummy space upstairs, Lower kicked off proceedings with a delicate set of R&B inflected dubstep. His own track All The Way Down, was a particularly slick, twinkling piece of late-night, feather-light melancholy. Our ‘Dispatches’-makers followed, with fun, distinctive sets coming from Don’t Die Wondering, Feeding Time and Off Modern.

Downstairs in the Apocalypso room, as the clock struck midnight, Montreal producer Jacques Greene stepped up. Flicking between the smooth R&B of The Weeknd, sky-high house, and bass crunches, interspersed with his own tracks which fall somewhere between the three. All ended in the dizzy, rise and rise swirl of new single ‘Another Girl’. A mind-engulfing hour.

Skull Juice closed proceedings back upstairs with a typically impressive run of party-inducing, body-moving tunes. Touching down with the likes of FCL and Lindstorm, then wrapping up with a Whitney Houston Vs Kraftwerk bootleg, before all were turfed out, hazy-eyed and not walking in a straight line, onto Curtain Road.
