A season of heavyweight parties are kicking off at Albert Hall this January under the Transmission banner, running into April. Highlights of the programme include David Rodigan and Steve Lawler who play the opening weekend followed by appearances from Eats Everything, Heidi, Carl Cox, Drum Code, Cuff Records, Steve Aoki, Yousef, Hessle Audio, Hospitality, Duke Dumont, Hot Since 82, Zutekh, Andy C, Hannah Wants, Masters At Work, Flying Lotus and Above & Beyond (which is sold out). Our top three picks of the season are as follows:
1. Ram Jam Ft David Rodigan, Shy FX, DJ Hype, Toddla T, Mike Skinner, Randall, Wookie.
Massive party with long-term masters of the dub-infected and off-piste clubbing scene. Surely few things beat Wookie’s Scrappy?
Fri 23 Jan, 9pm-4am, £22.50, www.transmission-tickets.eventgenius.co.uk
2. Carl Cox & Friends ft Eats Everything and Jon Rundell
The techno overload teams up with scene leaders, Eats Everything and Jon Rundell.
Fri 3 Apr, 9pm-4am, £28.50, www.transmission-tickets.eventgenius.co.uk
3. Defected ft Masters at Work, Oliver $, Simon Dunmore, Sonny Fondane.
We can’t get enough Oliver Dollar. Where better to experience the talents of Mr Pushing On than in a big party format?
