Exciting announcement, hopefully the first among many (or at least a handful)!

If memory serves, the last time the entire Full Service original lineup set up shop in a club was sometime last spring. Now allow me to blow your mind: as of Saturday, October 31, that will no longer be the case. Wreck Tech, Mike McGill b2b Tackleberry, Herr Jordan Rothlein (aka me) b2b Momo Araki (in perhaps our final appearance under our MO/RDAN moniker), and of course ultimate raev impresario Jack Inslee will be re-forming Wu-Tang style (hopefully more “Wu-Tang Forever” than “8 Diagrams”) to once again bring you our messy, eclectic, utopian vision for dance floor destruction. And because it’s Halloween, expect everything to be just a little weirder and creepier than you remember it.

To all of you naysayers who can’t get behind an incredible sound system if a Bud Light costs $8 at the bar: we feel your pain. Which is why Full Service will once again hold Raev of the Dead at Williamsburg’s epically wacky Glasslands. Beers are cheap and very good, and if memory serves, the DJ booth is underneath a massive painting of a penis or something. Put on a cracked-out costume, grab one hundred of your friends, and prepare to get mowed over by dubstep, disco, garage, house, booty rap, jungle, techno, musique concrète, hypnagogic pop, yacht rock, and probably much more.

DETAILS after the jump! And please come, dammit!

As far as I know, there is no true recording of last night’s set at Full Service. Luckily, Momo and I recorded this mix — with a lot of track overlap — two nights before in my bedroom. I’d meant to put this up on Friday as a pre-Raev promotion, but a dude must sleep sometime. Considering that this is supposedly the final Full Service party in this format (sorry to be coy, I really don’t know that much more than you do), it seems almost fitting that this would run as a kind of postmortem on the style Momo and I have developed over our ten-party run: druggy house and technoid anthems, to infinity and beyond!

2826_775716999759_811380_45489267_3105089_nI usually twiddle my thumbs until a few days before the event to put up a post, but this absolutely can’t wait. The Full Service crew descends on Club Love on May 23 for RAEV X, and we’re looking to make it our loudest, sweatiest, and most glowstick-addled shindig yet. Added bonus (or major bummer, depending on your sleep habits): Mo/rdan returns to the party’s 2am-close time slot, so expect things to get a little filthy (and j-j-jackin’) before the night is finished. Dig it!

In other sweet techno news, I have just joined the writing staff at venerable dance music blog Little White Earbuds! I’ve been a daily reader of that site for quite some time now, so it will be very strange to see my own name pop up underneath a post. If you’re at all interested in reading me blabber on about the sort of music I throw down on mixes here and parties elsewhere, then be sure to watch that space. But the LLC shall live on. Podcast soon, I swear!
