The trio will be in the middle of their ‘One Last Tour’ when they come to the 35,000-person capacity venue.
The Swedes will headline both nights (natch), but the first-announced supporting DJs include Zedd, Alesso, AN21 & Max Vangeli, Clockwork, Monsta, Third Party, and Mat Zo.
The trailer for Swedish House Mafia’s ‘One Last Tour’ can be viewed below.
Eats Everything has equipment and “years worth of work” stolen at DJ Mag Awards
The night should have been a triumphant one for the Bristolian, who took away the Best DJ title at the ceremony. Not so, unfortunately. In the moments before his headline set at London’s Cable, the producer had three memory sticks and a pair of headphones stolen from the DJ booth. According to the Eats Everyhting’s Twitter, he has had “years worth of solid work stolen, 100s of records that only I have”. Richy Ahmed subsequently had to fill in for the producer.
Speaking to Mixmag, the DJ said: “Basically I am not bothered about the headphones or the USB sticks at all, it’s just the music being in the hands of some oik basically. I have it all backed up, everything is replaceable but it meant coming home last night and loading everything onto a hard drive which took two hours then I had to be up at 8am to fly to Geneva and didn’t get it backed up in time so now have hardly any music for a tour of Switzerland.”
Anyone with any info is asked to ping an email over to his management. Other winners at the awards were Julio Bashmore, who took away the Best Single award for ‘Au Seve’, and Disclosure, who got props for their ubiquitous remix of Jessie Ware’s ‘Running.’

Boiler Room is coming to Australia
It’s only taken two years for Boiler Room to rack up an audience numbering in the hundreds of thousands. After all, get guys like Dixon and Ame or Skream and Disclosure to go back-to-back in a hotel room while you stream the whole thing live and you’re bound to pique a bit of interest. In warehouses, secret locations and intimate venues around the UK and Europe, Boiler Room’s broadcast invite-only DJ sets (and the odd live performance) from names like Caribou, Jamie xx, James Blake and Jonti since 2010.
But Boiler Room being a Europe-based site, Southern Hemisphere audiences have never really had the chance to be one of the punters right there, throwing pillow fight fluff in Skream’s face while he tries to mix – until now. Boiler Room has announced that they’re coming to Australia for the first time at the beginning of the New Year, thanks to Melbourne boutique festival Sugar Mountain, Sydney underground institution Goodgod and Good Company. Boiler Room will be stopping over for a series of Australian gigs in January, hitting secret venues in Perth, Goodgod in Sydney, plus Sugar Mountain and The Bottom End in Melbourne.
There’s no word yet on who they’ve recruited for the sets – but given their UK/Europe December lineup boasts Kerri Chandler, Laurent Garnier and Jamie xx among others, high-calibre names seem given. But to get speculative, look no further than the Sugar Mountain lineup for clues: Jonti, Peanut Butter Wolf, Action Bronson and HTRK could all work. Whoever they’ve got on board, though, Boiler Room coming to Australia is very, very good news.
Boiler Room Australian dates:
Saturday 12 January – secret venue (details to be announced), Perth
Sunday 13 January – secret venue (details to be announced), Perth
Thursday 17 January – Good God Small Club, Sydney
Saturday 19 January – Sugar Mountain Festival at The Forum Theatre, Melbourne
Sunday 27 January – The Bottom End, Melbourne
Lee Burridge finishes the year in the US
Lee Burridge will wind down 2012 with four parties across the US.
A veteran DJ with a soft spot for the more melancholy side of house music, Burridge has recently been busy with All Day I Dream, the widely-loved label and party concept he launched last summer with recent RA podcast selector Matthew Dekay. (The duo’s “Fur Die Liebe” also earned a nod as one of RA’s top tracks of 2012.) Next up, Burridge will DJ at four parties over four consecutive days. Next Saturday and Sunday, he’ll headline at Public Works in San Francisco and Spy Bar in Chicago. On New Year’s Eve, Burridge is billed with Moby at a TBA warehouse location in Brooklyn, before he sets up shop at The Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles for a New Year’s Day edition of All Day I Dream.
Dec 30 Lee Burridge on the Eve of the Eve, Spy Bar, Illinois
Dec 31 Unicorn Meat NYC prese.., Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York
Jan 01 All (New Years.., The Egyptian Theatre, California (South)
Fabric Launches New Houndstooth Label
London club and home of consistently quality mix CDs (seriously, two of them made it into our Best Releases of 2012 list), Fabric has announced a new label endeavor called Houndstooth. The imprint will be helmed by Electronic Explorations curator Rob Booth, who in an interview with FACT said of the label, “Houndstooth is completely an artist-led endeavour, so the focus of what we’re doing will be squarely on them and their output.” In other words, Houndstooth will be issuing singles, EPs, and LPs, not mixes.
Houndstooth’s first release will come next year from Berlin’s Call Super (a producer who has appeared in our Downloads section a couple of times over the years), which will be followed by records from Δkkord, House of Black Lanterns (the new project from King Cannibal), Al Tourettes, and _Unsubscribe_. While Call Super’s The Present Tense EP does not have an official release date, tracklist, or artwork yet, Houndstooth did release a nifty promo video of Fabric’s logo morphing into its own, which you can watch below.
