New clubnight concept Clock Strikes 13 are about to make what you thought could never happen on the London clubnight calendar, happen. Tying together the scenes most bubbling artists, venues and labels; the series is set to dominate your social life from October through to the end of the year with artist takeovers from the likes of Bok Bok and Eclair Fifi, three installments of Ninja Tune, and (breathe) nights and globally respected labels going tête-à-tête, including the pairing of Mr. Mitch's Boxed with Local Action. The cherry on the cake comes with what most will consider a match made in heaven, Hyperdub x Teklife. We're also pretty hyped for 20/20 edging up to Dummy faves Astral Black, who recently premiered Drae Da Skimask's Ganksta Shit with us.
And not forgetting geography, this new series is pretty much a London tour with dates spread far and wide across the city – from Birthdays in Dalston, Bloc out in the sticks of Hackney Wick, ICA in central and south of the river covered with Corsica – there's no excuses.
Check the teaser and Clock Strikes 13 calendar below, then get yourself ready for the tsunami.
