Everyone in Edinburgh should stagger on down to Sneaky Pete's, the Cowgate's premiere sleazy dive bar tomorrow the 22nd of November for the launch of Wasabi Disco.
Hosted by Pure-alumnus and tiny rave hooligan Kris Wasabi it will feature a five hour mix of "mutant discoisms for beards, queers, freaks, straight folks and the over 30...".
Kris is an absolutely incredible DJ with fantastic taste who's been playing all round the place (Optimo backroom, Pandemic@Sleazy's, X-Vectrian happenings, weddings, bar mitzvahs, Welcome home from prison bashes etc...) for years. It's going to be a messy one.
Bafflingly this is his first foray into running his own club, I'm really excited at the prospect.
And better again it's free.
If you're still not sure then check out his fucking incredible slow-mo disco mix. There are a load of other mixes available on the myspace site.

Thanks to everyone who came down to the Voodoo Rooms last night.
Great turnout for a Monday night. TR I/O FON were absolutely fantastic, scrambling brains with scattergun clatter early doors. Inspired me to pull out Autechre's Envane EP to follow up.
Played Donnacha Costello's newie too before Araya followed on with a gorgeous set of bright shiny shimmer. Really looking forward to forthcoming releases. Then a few more tunes, Photek's 2 sword technique giving way to Peverelist's awesome remix of Shackleton on ~scape, those technoey kicks sounded brilliant over the Voodoo's sound system.
Then Pole came on and flattened everyone with a great set, starting with his rework of Shackleton's Shortwave and blasting through some Steingarten goodies and the forthcoming 12" "Alles Gut/Alles Klar". A great set from an absolute gent that neatly dispelled the notion that Betke's music is all about the sound design, really physical and great fun. Dancing amongst Edinburgh audiences is as rare as hens teeth and it was nice to see the floor moving!
