Pure Intec Launch Party With Carl Cox and Jon Rundell, XOYO London



Like many Carl Cox is a DJ that is always at the forefront of my mind when thinking of great house and techno! So when I heard the he was playing his first UK set of the year in London (at a much more intimate venue than I have ever seen him at before), there was nothing short of a global disaster that would stop me being there.

The club XOYO is a name synonymous with good music and was re-launched back in September and has since held a number of powerful artists known world-wide, and plenty of talent for the future. Located at the heart of Shoreditch, the club has defined itself as one of the prime late night destinations in the area for exceptional music amongst locals and visitors alike. So Pure Intec choosing it as their first stop in a series of club nights planned across the capital was no surprise. Pure Intec will be returning throughout 2013 at different venues across the city, along with a handful of international dates and the launch of these new nights coincides with long awaited re-launch of ‘Pure Intec’, with ‘Pure Intec Two’ which was released on 8th April, 9 years after its hugely successful predecessor back in 2004.


So back on Thursday 11th April I journeyed over to XOYO with high hopes for the night, with Carl Cox having support from the masterful Jon Rundell, how could I expect anything less than an expertly delivered musical performance!  I am ecstatic to say that night was everything that I had hoped for and more, with everyone around the room dancing…. well let me rephrase that – everyone moving till the end. It was a night of pure unadulterated beats and sounds that made you want to move your feet, everyone had smiles on their faces and rhythms pulsing through the floor.  If this night was anything to go by I will be making sure I do three things in this coming year, firstly I will not be missing the upcoming Intec parties that are planned throughout London, secondly I will be at South West Four to check out Carl and his arena and finally I’ll be seeing if I’m able to get out to see the legend in his familiar surroundings at Space Ibiza. This musical ambassador is a must see, after viewing his skills again its  clear to see, he is still well on top of his game be sure you make a date to see at least one of his shows this year!

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
