Online electronic music bible Resident Advisor celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. Since 2001 RA has been an invaluable resource to both the clued up music lover and industry alike, as well as the club-goer simply looking for a good night out. And in way of celebration they have cooked up something special: 10 parties in 10 cities around the world, each with a secret headliner - the RA X – an artist that has positively influenced the electronic music landscape over the past decade, and who has been chosen to curate the rest of the lineup.
Each of the parties is marked with the release of a limited edition A1 print with artwork created by the likes of Trevor Jackson, Simon Cook, Lavent Fetis and more. Limited to just 75 and hand printed by K2 in London on A1 200gsm Cyclus Offset uncoated stock, each one costs a very reasonable £15; think of them as almost a gift from RA to say 'thanks'.
London kicks off proceedings this Saturday at Cable with a lineup diverse enough to make predicting the special guest all but impossible. Techno comes courtesy of Horizontal Ground's 19.4184.108.40.206.5.18 and Onur Ozer (Cocoon). Trevor Jackson, Dial's Lawrence (Sten, Mule, Hamburg) and the young Kyle Hall (Wild Oats, FXHE, Hyperdub, Detroit) flying the flag for the more house-inclined. And what Hessle Audio boss Ben UFO will go for is anyone's guess.
