Corsica Studios

© Michelle Grant / Time Out
Elephant & Castle

Corsica Studios is an independent, not-for-profit arts complex whose ethos is to breed creativity and culture in areas of regeneration, which it achives primarily through putting on some of the most cutting-edge club nights, one-off parties and gigs in London. It's a relatively intimate space, but that's part of the appeal – you won't find the globe-conquering DJ jet-set and their empires of fans here, but you will find an incredible selection of the finest alternative and underground producers and selectors on the planet: it's not unusual to find US legends like Derrick Carter and Maurice Fulton rubbing shoulders with newer innovators like Auntie Flo and A Made Up Sound.

Regular nights like Tessellate, Trouble Vision, Find Me in the Dark and after-hours Sunday party Jaded supply the committed clubbers with deep techno, minimal house, tripped-out disco, wonky rave and other edgy sounds, and there are plenty of ace one-off events too.

Vergonzoso; El espacio nada tiene que ver con la cultura clubbing; es como una Rave pero con precios y condiciones de club; es un timo. La sala tendra poco mas de 100m cuadrados altavoces de rave decoracion y luces austeras latas de cerveza a 4 pound y la entrada a 15 pound aunque en internet ponga 10. Es como pagar 15 pound para ir a una rave cutre; es todo lo contrario de un local cool y la musica es demasiado previsible muy alejada de las texturas underground. 100% desaconsejable. UN HORROR.

Wow...just wow. Seeing 6am after a night at Corsica is like seeing the first sunrise...

Corsica Studios is arguably one of London town's great (and unsung) venues. The fact that it is slightly off the radar is probably a benefit, as without wanting to sound like a snob, unlike it's famous neighbour up the road (MoS) it attracts a more discerning, partisan crowd. I've been to a couple of D&B nights and a couple of techno nights, all very good. My only criticism would be the last techno night I went to a few weeks back, which was a multi collaboration of various promotions, which meant the venue made use of a neighbouring building to accommodate. This space was by far the most popular, which meant queueing for entry, and once inside was the hottest place I've ever been! Don't let this put you off though, I think that was a rarity. Come and sample the much heralded, but hard to find essence of London's underground dance music scene, you will not be disappointed. One last point. Whoever in the management of this venue is responsible for the sound system spec, which cannot have been cheap (full fat, full price) deserves a medal. It's the one thing that medium / small venues tend to shirk on. Not at Corsica; This is one of the best (if not the best) sound systems in London. Tony Andrews would be proud of what He's done to the elephant
