Responsible for making up the term ‘fidget house’ as a bit of a laugh with his mate Switch, only to see hoardes of bloggers/journos jump on it and rinse it to death, the overlord of modern house Jesse Rose is equally responsible for making some of the biggest dancefloor tracks of the past few years – in 2008 alone he put out You’re All Over My Head, Touch My Horn, Take It To The Club with Herve, Forget My Name with Hot Chip, as well as his anvil-supplemented remix of Ready For The Floor, with his first album proper, What Do You Do If You Don’t, being one of the defining sounds of electrohouse in 2009.

Still moving between the Dubsided label and his own imprint Made To Play, he released his latest track Anthem – made under his Black Rose guise – on Made to Play in Feb 2011, and is currently moving between producing his new solo album and checking out ‘the grimy but very fresh warehouse parties’ in downtown L.A, where he went to escape the ‘uber cold’ Berlin winter for a few months. Such similar lives, Jesse.

The rest of the night will be dedicated to retro-futuristic disco house, vocoded vocals and crisp handclaps. After being scuppered by the snow (remember that?) at our XXXmas party, we’re delighted to welcome BURNS – who sounds like he’s been brought up solely on a diet of Daft Punk, synths and sunshine at a Spanish summer carnival, despite the fact he was born in Glasgow. Check out So Many Nights if you don’t believe us, or his Yasmin, Empire Of The Sun and Passion Pit remixes.

Meanwhile, in the next room, the RPZ boys are bringing us a treat in the form of Xinobi & Moullinex – head honchos of the wonderful Discotexas label/collective based in Portugal. More daft italo disco than Daft Punk, they, too, clearly devour synths and sunshine for breakfast, although this time at a late summer pool party. Whilst Moullinex’s luscious Superman EP was released last year on Gomma following remix requests from Cut Copy and Sebastian Tellier, Xinobi is known as much for tracks such as Day Off and Best Of Me as his remixes – including highly recommended recent ones of Coupons and Toro Y Moi, with a remix of Giorgio Moroder in the bag.
