We love a good party at Wonderland, and no one throws a party quite like the GETME! crew. They’ve built up a strong reputation for being the key underground tastemakers of the electronic music scene, with their nights, mixes and artists managing to both subvert and expand the genre. If you haven’t been to one of their nights yet, make sure you head down to Power Lunches in Dalston tomorrow. If there was ever a reason to ditch pizza and Netflix on a Friday night, this is it.
Heading up the GETME! crew is Alex Hislop (AKA LIXO) who put out his debut EP this September. The EP, ‘Gloomer’, plays with house, techno and electronica, all the while keeping melody at it’s core which makes for a record that perfectly matches any stage of your feel-good night. Bringing a warmth and intimacy to UK club music, LIXO’s tracks make you want to throw shapes and hug everyone on the dance floor simultaneously. It transports us to that point in the early hours when you’re in love with every person in the crowd, you’ve had sufficient drinks to loose all inhibitions and you never want the night to end. Sound familiar? You’ll love LIXO too. Ahead of tomorrow night’s party we asked him to make us a mix to help get us in the mood, and he did. Let the dance/hugging begin.
