Electronic music has always led the way when it comes to technology and innovation. Pioneers such as Kraftwerk, Jeff Mills and Carl Cox have all irrevocably changed how we view the musical landscape, in the process setting a new benchmark in terms of sound and musical capabilities.
Truss launches in Birmingham this October.
With a capacity of over 1500 people the club will consist of three spaces; a main room for high profile DJs, a second one for upcoming talent and a third room dedicated solely to local talent.
In the face of a string of recent club closures in the UK capital, a new club called Phonox will open in Brixton this September.
Opening as a bar from 6pm and running into the later hours, the club, previously Plan B, promises a dancefloor, a single soundsystem, and one DJ all night long.
In light of recent London club closures, such as Crucifix lane and Vibe bar, a hidden new gem called Work.London has popped up in Chapel Market (Angel).
Launching this weekend, this 110-capacity venue — with a slick cocktail bar upstairs and a classy basement downstairs — is to host top London promotions, DJ live streams and super exclusive industry parties with high profile dance talent on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays.

DIYnamic Outdoor is set to dominate a brand-new and picturesque outdoor dance space this summer, following last year's sell-out run on the White Isle at Destino.
Every Tuesday from 16th June till 29th September, DIYnamic will throw its much-loved DIYnamic Outdoor knees-up at Beachouse in Playa d’en Bossa, for 16 parties full of sunshine, smiles and quality deep house grooves.
Some of the most beautiful relationships began in the booth. We've all seen YouTube footage of Sven and Luciano “getting on” at the Ushuaia afterparty in 2009 (if you haven't, Google it). As well as a bit of fun — if done right — a b2b set can not only compound the pulling power of a name on a line-up, it can also pave the way for new, more interesting journeys.
Once formed, a strong, harmonious DJ partnership is a difficult thing to break.
Following well-received rave-ups in New York, Amsterdam, Barcelona and slightly more obscurely, Chile, Berlin-based brand Hyte is up for an all-new, eight-week residency at Amnesia. An entrepreneurial dance brand with a finger in many a pie, Hyte also run a stellar imprint out of their hometown in Berlin, building a loyal and far-reaching fan-base over the last few years.
If you’re from London and you like to stay up (really!) late, you’ll probably already know about Solid Grooves. This season, the Solid Grooves crew are stepping out into the daylight and taking it international, jetting off to Ibiza for the very first time this summer.
