What is it?
With a stellar line up to mark the occasion, notorious club night Super Electric Party Machine celebrates the release of its self-titled album at East Bloc on 17th January.
Not for the faint-hearted and definitely not for the boring, Super Electric Party Machine is an eleven track attitude-packed riot of ghetto bass, badass booty, throbbing house and ballroom, packed with future club anthems that scream mainstream crossover.
Less a debut full-length, the album is more an explosive statement from a weird and wonderful cast of producers, DJs, artists, performers, MCs and club-land characters. Larry Tee, Mike Q, Andrey Bartenev, Roxy Cottontail, Princess Superstar, Nwando, Sharon Needles, C*nty Savage, Lady Cartel, QBoy and singer-cum-cover girl Portia Ferrari make up this colourful, creative gang of esoteric characters, who go against the grain and do things their way.
Portia made a big impact on London’s fashion scene with a string of shoots, catwalks and magazine appearances in 2013, notably gracing the pages of i-D Magazine earlier in the year. Musically she blends old school deep house with experimental trip-hop, effortlessly bridging the gap between the old and the new sounds of the London underground. She will be performing upcoming single BodyTalk live at the launch alongside Nwando, Lady Cartel and residents Larry Tee and AttackAttackAttack.
Super Electric Party Machine started life as a weekly London party that has since spread to Barcelona, Amsterdam, Berlin and Lisbon. It features live entertainment and to date has seen inspired turns from Brooke Candy, Charli XCX, A*M*E, Peaches, Darq E Freaker, Ssion, Le1f and reality TV star Sharon Needles (the winner of Rupaul Drag TV Show), not to mention DJ sets from Horse Meat Disco’s Severino, Raf Daddy from The 2 Bears, Danny Rampling, Hannah Holland and The Lovely Jonjo.
