Plenty of music is still to come from Bloc’s London series and we have a double pass to see Shackleton and Appleblim.

Bloc is making its return to the event game this coming Saturday with Model 500 and Juan Atkins, and we have a pair of tickets to give away.
The team behind the ill-fated Bloc festival have announced a new event series for 2013.
The organisers of this year’s Bloc Festival have broken their silence, releasing an official statement today in an attempt to explain exactly what went wrong at July’s ill-fated event.
The fall out from last month’s cancelled Bloc Festival continues with the news that London Pleasure Gardens, venue for the disastrous event, is set to enter administration.
With the countdown to Bloc 2012 well and truly on, we have listed our five must-see acts at the festival.
Despite its many charms, Minehead’s Butlins resort in mid March is patently not Barcelona.Yet it’s here, out of season by the Bristol channel, that a musical movement is brewing to rival that of Sónar as one of the world’s premiere events catering for discerning electronic music.
Bloc, now in its fifth year, has grown exponentially since its launch and the line-up assembled for the 2011 showcase was, on paper, its strongest yet. In many ways it’s a canny move to book the event so early in the year, as it allows organisers to operate unencumbered by the goings on of the UK/European summer festivals that duke it out from June to August. It also offers actual beds to revellers, and those of us of a certain vintage welcome the chance to rest our weary heads somewhere comfy, rather than climb into a freezing tent and sleep for exactly five minutes before waking up to scorching sunshine/pissing rain (delete where applicable) and a parched mouth.
The line-up is really starting to take shape, with Subloaded, FWD/Rinse FM, Overkill and Braindrop all set to curate tents.
They join the likes of US trio Salt-N-Pepa, who will perform their first live show in 15, Grandmaster Flash, Derrick May and Autechre.
