Analogue Ribbon Synthesizers
Korg puts the thrill of the analog synthesizer into everyoneâ€™s hands, with the monotron, the monotron DUO, and the monotron DELAY
Go Anywhere Analog: That was the theme behind the remarkable battery-powered and palm-sized Korg analog synthesizer dubbed the monotron. The powerful and fun-to-play monotron analog synthesizer has been joined by two siblings. The Dual Oscillator monotron DUO offers X-MOD capabilities for generating even more extreme sounds. The monotron DELAY features a Space Delay that can produce intense, analog-like echo effects. Best of all, theyâ€™re a blast to play. Each is equipped with a ribbon keyboard and a live, ready-to-be tweaked front panel offering five knobs and a single switch. This simple operation and ease of use invites hours of enjoyment and musical exploration.
Casual users and gadget mavens will quickly enjoy performing melodies, DJs can create dazzling effects on stage, while established players can add analog muscle to their performance â€“ the possibilities are virtually endless. Grab a monotron, monotron DUO, or monotron DELAY, and get in touch with the exciting world of Korg analog synths.

The HaÃ§ienda comes to London for HaÃ§ienda 30 â€“ an explosive anniversary party featuring some of the greatest pioneers in house music â€“ Todd Terry, Marshall Jefferson, Mike Pickering and Bobby Langleyâ€¦
This year The HaÃ§ienda celebrates 30 stunning years, and to mark the release of a special 30th anniversary compilation album. Coming to KOKO on Saturday December 15th this party is set to have London dancing like it hasnâ€™t since 1992, when The HaÃ§ienda last came to town.
HaÃ§ienda 30 at KOKO will be unforgettable, celebrating a leading light in the history of dance music â€“ and one of the most notorious clubs the scene has ever known â€“ as it turns 30 years old. Enlisting the talent of DJs who were there when it all began, back when people gave up their jobs to party with the DJs they loved and to the music that set them free, HaÃ§ienda 30 takes us back to the beginning.
Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Todd Terry has been cultivating the underground and breaking boundaries since the late 1980s. As one of the worldâ€™s most celebrated names in dance music, Todd Terry brings infectious blend of big house, old school synths, disco, thumping drum beats and bassline loops to KOKO for one night only.
Widely regarded as one of the leading innovators of Chicago house music, Marshall Jefferson takes to the turntables for this truly momentous occasion. Best known for inventing that squelchy acid house sound, he also conquered deep house, releasing the first track to ever use piano. He comes to KOKO ready to take revellers on a journey through the last 30 years of dance music.
The HaÃ§iendaâ€™s former booker, renowned DJ and industry insider Mike Pickering was there at the start. His name and sound represented part of The HaÃ§iendaâ€™s identity. Experience the charisma they witnessed from the DJ booth, as Mike Pickering selects a very special â€“ and rare â€“ set worthy of this 30th anniversary. Another HaÃ§ienda legend, Bobby Langley played a key part in the clubâ€™s history. He was in the thick of the glory days when the clubâ€™s popularity saw it full to the brim week on week. Bobby Langley will have KOKO under the thumb and moving to every change, pulse and rhythm in his set.
Having opened in Manchester in 1982, The HaÃ§ienda quickly became one the most famous and respected clubs in the world â€“ hosting many huge names, and helping to launch the careers of countless others. Considered a super-club even before the dawn of club culture, and way ahead of its time, The HaÃ§ienda was a place for people to really escape, let go and have a good time, and became a musical hub â€“ an institution in its own right. It gave the budding scene an identity, a soul and a home of its own and few. As the dance scene spread outwards to other clubs, warehouse parties and raves throughout the UK and Europe, The HaÃ§iendaâ€™s influence was undeniable. It became the epicentre of a dynamic music scene, and, despite its closure in 1997 that energy still lives on.
The HaÃ§iendaâ€™s history is celebrated this year, with the release of â€˜HaÃ§ienda 30â€™ â€“ a three-CD compilation mixed by club residents Graeme Park and Mike Pickering, plus owner and former New Order and Joy Division man Peter Hook â€“ and the announcement of three unmissable dates around the UK. The HaÃ§ienda returns to the capital after a 20-year absence for a huge show at KOKO, as well as hitting Leeds and Manchester onâ€¦
HaÃ§ienda 30 re-visits those formative and expressive years of club culture, embracing the legacy of the club
and bringing it bang up to date for todayâ€™s ravers. HaÃ§ienda 30 comes to KOKO on December 15th, kicking it
with The HaÃ§iendaâ€™s inimitable brand of musical hedonism and adventure.

Time / 9pm – 4am
Venue / KOKO/ 1a Camden High Street; Camden Town; London NW1 7JE; United Kingdom
Cost / 12.50 Early Birds, 15.50 General Admission, 17.50 Late Buyers
Nyumba Deep Presentsâ€¦.
The Bedroom Bar
68 Rivington Street
On Friday 16th November, Nyumba Deep continue their residency at The Bedroom Bar with a really special party. A party personal to not only me but to a whole generation of like minded Party People who used to gather once a month on a Thursday night to take in something truly special.
It is our pleasure to bring you Soulmates.
Soulmates is a celebration of underground soulful house music. It has carved out a niche for itself in being one of the
few nights in London where you can hear brilliantly soulful, yet genuinely underground house music month after month.
Soulmatesâ€™ refreshing music policy and insistence on quality control draws in one of the finest and friendliest crowds in London. Soul heads to jazz dancers, industry types to in-the-know music lovers can all be found shaking a leg on the Soulmates dancefloor, making for a wonderfully inclusive, family vibe at each and every event.
Over the years they have had regular guests including Glenn Underground, Casamena, Frankie Feliciano, Jovonn, Karizma, Alix Alvarez, Alton Miller, Greg Gauthier and more joining superb residents Dennis Christensen and Rap Saunders behind the decks – plus regular support from guests on percussion and on the mic. A party everyone should experience!
It’s neither a deep, soulful, UK or US sound… It’s a Soulmates sound!
Supporting Rap and Dennis will be Nyumba Deep’s Leon Paul.
Expect nothing but the best in Deep Soulful House music for all you Party People.
So for one night only Soulmates Return for those who like to reminisce or for those who missed out the first time around.
