London based club night Issst has grown from it's humble warehouse beginnings to become one of the most revered nights in the city's (and world's) club life since it's inception in February 2005. This is the first EP to celebrate the club, it's resident DJs and unique atmosphere.
Issst is about all a vibe created by a sharp crowd and the finest global talent, yet anyone who has been to an Issst party will maintain that it's resident dj/promoter team, Kevin Griffiths and Bobby M, who hold the key to the night.
When the boys are behind the decks there's a certain energy in the room which seems to prevent anyone from hanging out at the bar or sitting around waiting for something to happen. Their fusion of all persuasions of contemporary electronic house music, techno and electro is overwhelming, sexy and seems to touch everyone in the room without exception. It's a logical choice that the boys themselves have stepped up and delivered the clubs inaugural mix, "This Is Issst".
Mixed live at The End using two turntables and a mixer the compilation takes in 15 tracks ranging from the deep, warm tech house of Bushwacka's "Beastman" to the dystopian electro of Radioactive Man via nervy disco, acid house and electronic oddities from the likes of Radio Slave, Kompakt's Oxia and Playgroup. The sum of such a diverse selection is an entertaining and exciting mix which avoids clichés and displays Issst's forward thinking attitude as much as it's status as a damn fine night out.
The perfect aural snapshot of the Issst experience, "This Is Issst" shows it's listeners why the night has attracted talent such as Tiefschwarz (sometimes topless and on crutches), The Hacker, Nathan Fake, Chicken Lips, Alan Braxe and Digitalism so far. It also gives an insight into why the night works equally as well in a grimey warehouse as it does in world class venue's such as Ministry of Sound, The End, The Key, Turnmills, 333, Egg and Medicine - it's about the party, not the place.
