So it's finally happening. It's been about four months since the rooftop BBQ where me and Sasha
started discussing starting a night and Graziela
, being absent as per usual, enthusiastically texted back in support of the idea.
Between us, we have slightly different musical tastes, but with all three being die-hard Future Brain
regulars, it was somewhat inevitable that italo disco would play a large part in this new night. We did not however, want it to be just about italo, as Future Brain already does a fantastic job of that. The idea is that It's Automatic
should bring together a wider range of styles, from old school electro and freestyle to jacking ghetto disko a la Legowelt, to Detroit techno to minimal synth to 80s pop to italo/cosmic disco etc. All with an emphasis on fun and danceability (and cheesy synths ;).
The name, in case you're wondering, is nicked from electro classic It's Automatic
So, do come down to The Macbeth on Friday 28 September and join in the festivities. …
