Restricting DJs to just a single deck seems to bring out the best in them – or at least their best tunes as legendary sets by recent guests like Steve Davis and Don Letts prove. Freed from trying to seamlessly mesh music, those that take up Electrik’s weekly one-deck challenge are able to play the kind of eclectic wonders they might at home, spinning anything from jazz, obscure movie soundtracks, latin, folk and pop with no scratching, beat juggling, or indeed, mixing. The night is completely free and crate diggers for July include: Andi Hanley (5 Jul), Marc Starr (12 Jul) and Andrea Trout (19 Jul) plus a set at the end of the month by The Specials founder Jerry Dammers (read our full preview here).
