Mind on Fire X PYC Sessions

Our good friends over at have put together a brilliant feature about the collective including an exclusive mix rammed with past, present and future label material and a “ten tracks” feature with each member of the crew digging deep into their record collections to give an insight into our influences. Check the articles in full here:

So the time is upon us and tonight we will converge on the Soup Kitchen’s basement to celebrate the imminent release of Danny Drive Thru’s Psychedelia Smith 7″ and Mind On Fire’s 7th year in existence.

The Naive Machine remix of Violence Makes we posted earlier this week max out its 100 downloads in 1 day so now you will have to wait until the digitals come out on November 7th if you want that track.

What you don’t have to wait for today though is this 12 track Zoir  album available at the mans Bandcamp


Daedelus & EMN Archimedes A/V show Feat. SZARE


Daedalus & Archimedes

Long time MOF & Hoya:Hoya visual wizard EMN has coerced LA beat magician Daedelus to the basement of Soup Kitchen for the last of the shows featuring the current incarnation of ARCHIMEDES, a moving wall of robotic mirrors synced with EMN’s hands and Daedalus’ sounds. This is your last chance to see this amazing contraption so don’t miss it!

Supporting is MOF’s very own prodigal son(s) SZARE who will be showcasing a new set, and Hoya’s Jon K doing his thang.

oh and it’s TONIGHT by the way; Doors at 9pm £7 in, no advance tickets


here’s a video snippet of what to expect… Daedelus with Archimedes in Brooklyn
