13.05.2014, Words by Anthony Walker

Premiere: comm•une's first birthday mixtape

comm•une are a London based collective including members of Throwing Snow, Dark Sky, The Daily Street, Hyponik and more, who've been organising on monthly events in the city for the past year, and are now rightly giving each other a good pat on the back. 

In anticipation of their first birthday party at Dalston's Dance Tunnel this Thursday 15th May (full details here), they have put together this special mixtape that features material from past guests, a smattering of exclusive new tracks and edits, personal favourites, and celebratory shout-outs from locals around their East London base. It's all stitched together by Throwing Snow and includes field recordings from Dance Tunnel and around the area. Following their first birthday, commune plan to put on more events both at Dance Tunnel and further afield as well as release a few records.
