Battant in the Mix for Tender Love!

Time to kick off our Guest Mix series, together with a list of special acts which will grace the stage at Hoxton Bar alongside Tender Love.

"Battant make music that is dark, sinister and easy to get swept away with." (Alasdair/Diskant)
"Adrian Mole on a narcotic comedown." (The Guardian)

Here's a little surprise: this Saturday we'll have the super-talented BATTANT as our special guests at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen. Supported widely by the likes of Chloe and Marc Houle, and signed to Kill The DJ - Battant is currently working on its second longplay. Check this exclusive mix they recorded for us:

Tender Love Guest Mix 01: Battant by Tender Love

Unlike our previous offerings, this is dark and brooding techno and minimal-tech journey, with a few unexpected twists on the way... As we already mentioned, Battant's second album is in the making, but meanwhile - check out their amazing tunes on Myspace.

And don't miss them this Saturday night at Hoxton Bar, it's completely FREE!

Tender Love Summer Mixtape

It's summertime and we're feeling the magic! The time of hedonistic pleasures, rooftop parties and festival treats... We visited Berlin sometime in May - baking in the sun at the garden of Panorama Bar must have been the highlight - and a month later we flew to the off-Sonar parties in Barcelona. We were completely blown away. Beach party too pool party to rooftop rave to club - REPEAT - with some of the most forward thinking dance music out there, amazing party people from all over the world and the baking Spanish sun...

Despite the moody sky above London, we can feel the summer vibes all around now and it leaves a lasting imprint on the music we listen to - and the music we play. Here's our first summer transmission, mixed by KV. Because sharing is loving... :)
