Saturday, 20th November sees the next instalment of Topman’s in store DJ programme ‘Saturday Matinee’ in its Oxford Circus flagship store. What better way to shop on a Saturday afternoon than with a soundtrack provided by some of the most up-and-coming and influential trendsetting bands, promoters and DJs on the London and national music scene.
This week sees all girl promoters Dance Magic Dance fill the 1pm-3pm slot followed by DJ and Kill Em All resident DJ Stopmakingme in the 4pm-6pm slot.
Dance Magic Dance is a night put on by three East London girls who love nothing more than to be swaying behind the decks whilst mixing up musical genres with little regard for taste or decency, and generally having lots of cider fuelled girly fun.
Stopmakingme’s love for Trash, Optimo, Soulwax and older references like The Paradise Garage all come through in his DJ sets where electro and techno sit alongside updated post-punk, huge disco, krautrock basslines, mutant new wave and perfect pop choruses.
