How’s my Raving will host a weekend(er) of mayhem across both London Big Chill venues on the weekend of May 21-22.

May 21 sees Errorsmith, one half of MMM with Fiedel, and a member of Smith and Hack, headline. If you’ve read FACT lately you’ll know that we’re quite into that whole circle, so we’re excited by the prospect of one of them playing London again. Alongside him you’ll find bon a fide UK garage and house legend Wookie, who’s played one of our FACT night’s before and smacked it. Yes he has.

That’s at the Big Chill Bar, Brick Lane, London.

Then at the Big Chill House, in Kings’ Cross, on May 22, you’ll have Drexciya one-man assault DJ Stingray, playing hard electro in a balaclava, Man Recordings boss Daniel Haaksman, UK garage and pre-dubstep (a term we like much more than post-dubstep) legend El-B [above], and Well Rounded (the label you might know from Deadboy’s releases on it)’s Gongon.

Residents Disco of Doom and Hot City will also be on board. Full information can be found on the Facebook event page; the May 21 event is free all night and the May 22 one a fiver after 10pm. Which is pretty good value, considering the names involved. Hey, why not watch the promo video?

Oh, and if you enter our competition, you’ll be able to win a pair of guestlist for the weekender, plus copies of the new Hot City and Gongon singles and a How’s my Raving t-shirt. The Hot City one is titled ‘Another Girl’, and comes in pink vinyl with Danielle Lloyd on it. Just email us at and you’re in the draw.

You can also download a mix by Gongon to promote the night, here:
