Drakeford will have a special guest mix from Crato of Magazine Records on From The Depths this week Friday. A little bit more in their own words: "last month we hosted an exhibition to celebrate our 10th release by Wendy Gondeln better known as artist Albert Oehlen.  He showed a great selection of his music-related work (either music and/or artwork) which we put in a diverse mix."

We've had a preview of the tracklisting and it looks pretty special - make sure you lock in, Friday 25th from 6-8pm.

This September 12-14th comes the first edition of SUSTAIN-RELEASE, an adventurous new music festival in Upstate New York featuring shared cabins for all participants, heated pools, a lake, bonfire, and forward-thinking music across two stages.

The first round of confirmed artists lie just off the mainstream radar, but are all firmly rising within the dance music avant-garde. The lineup includes a live set from Sandwell District's gender-tweaked techno shaman RROSE, whose propulsive performances crackle like an electrical storm off dark waters. There will be an extended DJ set from psychedelic and sensual house dancer-turned-producer JOEY ANDERSON, recently lauded for his immaculately bent album After Forever on Dekmantel. Berlin-based, California-raised XOSAR, a favorite of L.I.E.S, Crème and Rush Hour will play one of her sparkling hardware sets full of mysterious, aqueous melodies. Ascending Detroit producer MGUN comes fresh off releases for Kyle Hall’s Wild Oats, London’s Trilogy Tapes imprints and performances with Underground Resistance. A live performance from RVNG's BLONDES promises to be full of peaks & troughs with the woozy dynamic of unyielding euphoria, and MORGAN LEWIS reveals why his unhinged techno sets inspired the White Material renegade dance music stable. The festival will feature a pool party led by charismatic Underground Quality label boss JUS-ED, who has played a key role in the tri-state area’s genuine deep house movement over the last decade. Additional artists will be announced in the near future making for a bill of over 20 artists.

 Years in the making, Sustain-Release is the collaboration between Aurora Halal, artist, musician & creator of Brooklyn's Mutual Dreaming parties, and longtime music writer, promoter, and employee of halcyon, NTS & Underground Quality, Zara Wladawsky. Influenced by formative experiences at various UK camping festivals likeFreerotation and private parties in the woods, Sustain-Release brings together some of the most fascinating, cutting-edge artists of our time to play uncompromising sets in a bucolic natural environment two hours north of NYC. The first edition will commenceFRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 12TH and end at dawn on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH atCamp Lakota a 500-capacity summer camp nestled among the Catskills Mountains,in Wurtsboro, NY. Both indoor stages will be equipped with boutique sound fromTsunami Bass and immersive lighting installations by Nitemind. Local partners include Brooklyn's innovative underground venue Bossa Nova Civic Club.

Tickets start at $98, and are limited to 495. Reservations of a whole cabin to share with friends are available for groups of 12-24. There's parking on site, or visitors can take a shuttle bus from New York City provided at an additional low cost.
