In the mercurial landscape of dance music, longevity is definitely something worth celebrating. New record labels and parties appear and disappear in the blink of an eye, so a little recognition is in order when one manages to overcome the odds and stick around year after year. This week, you can raise a glass to three such entities: stalwart party-starters Fixed and ReSolute, and respected label Underground Quality. All three have proven they can consistently deliver the goods, so show up to see what happens when it's time for a little something special.

Party-starting vets Fixed take over Output to present a live set from erstwhile Imogen Heap keyboardist and frequent Coldplay collaborator Jon Hopkins.
ReSolute 7 Year Anniversary, Location TBA, Sat 22

Underground Quality 10 Year Anniversary, Output, Sat 22
The Underground Quality label celebrates its tenth birthday with a night of deeper-than-deep, emotive house sounds in Brooklyn.

Scissor and Thread's Frank & Tony man the Panther Room, and the Stilton House boasts sounds from JKriv, Aaron Dae and NYC disco powerhouse Escort.
