Magic and Medicine has been brewing up a feast of sonic night time adventures over the past 3 years with a whos who list of pioneering electronic acts from around the world. Global events have included Monza Club (Ibiza) Get Physical Night (Berlin) Kitsune Maison (Paris) Modular Party (Sydney) DFA (New York) Plus our own ground-breaking series of after-dark London entertainment – Neon Noise Project. Once again we have teamed up with the excellent !K7 label for our next club event mission DJ-KiCKS this time with British techno genius James Holden taking control. The magic and medicine presented DJ-KiCKS PARTY series is fast becoming the blueprint of sonically showcasing great talent up close and personal in unique bespoke spaces across London following our May Day bank holiday dfa’s Juan Macelan basement bash.

The venue couldn’t be more perfect a urban international platform for creativity and culture,the raw restored Victorian Warehouse has held parties for Hot Chip ,Chromeo ,Major Lazer and Four Tet to name a few.

Head of the zeitgeist-defining Border Community record label with a boundary pushing roster of acts has helped cement Holden reputation and break through into the european elite and become known worldwide as a genius in adventurous, progressive electronic sounds and the British techno sorcerer and psychedelic shaman.

So revered are his talents that hes been tapped to remix some of pop music most eminent stars, including Madonna, Depeche Mode, & Britney Spears, though as his road blocked dj appearances and DJ Kicks mix demonstrates, his tastes tend more to the cerebral than those associations suggest.

A forward thinking Border act roster of artist such as Avus ,Nathan Fake & Extrawelt can count themselves along with Holden as that very modern breed of DJ with a special knack for layering the most surprising of records with an unparalleled musical ear. His status as a free-spirit unconstrained by genre or scene is now championed by independent label stalwart !K7 and London promoters magic & medicine to deliver a one night only showcase of his mind bending deck selections and skills in celebration of the next installment in their definitive mix series DJ KiCKS.

Teaming up on the decks with good friend and technical wizard Kieran Hebden AKA Four Tet a very special party lay ahead as two of the most exciting UK dj and producers no doubt will offer some back to back action .Over the last couple of years, Hebden has seen his sound become more and more influenced by house, techno and minimal, echoing his move to become a more active DJ on the scene. He’s certainly been no stranger to London’s dance floors, holding down residencies at James Holden’s Border Community parties.

Hebden has released no less than four full-length collaborations with the veteran American free-jazz drummer Steve Reid and a 12-inch vinyl hook-up with old school mate Burial across the last five year.

Plus in support is Avus , Border Community’s acid house obsessive,a established and accomplished DJ of high pedigree and regular warm up man taking control of the resident slot at the Border label parties over the last 3 years.++++++++++
