South London Ordnance is best known for delivering his own signature brand of upfront techno business behind the decks. All killer, no filler. Now, as luck would have it, you can hear him for yourself straight from week eight at Richie Hawtin’s summer-long ENTER.Ibiza residency at Space. Last week Thursday, August 21st, the UK-based DJ producer manhandled the Terrace stage with a tight two-hour mix alongside night headliners Dubfire, Maceo Plex, Claude vonStroke, and more.
We’ve reached the halfway point in the ENTER.Ibiza 14-week summer season at Space and the hits just keep on coming: strength to strength. For week eight, tomorrow, August 21st, Richie Hawtin will be joined by German techno icon Sven Väth in the main room for a memorable performance. Elsewhere that night, Iranian powerhouse Dubfire, Maceo Plex, Claude VonStroke, South London Ordnance, and Bella Sarris, are just some of the special guests gracing the decks.

You see them on their own heading up a story on your favorite music blog and you don’t think twice about the sullen DJ press pic. But when you see them grouped together, as they have been by Producers and DJs Looking Depressed, you can’t help but chuckle. Nope, these are not ads for Ablixa. They’re the work of some smartypants with another gut-busting DJ-related Tumblr blog that we just can’t get enough of. So without further ado, we give you 10 hilariously depressing DJ press shots, courtesy of depresseddjs.tumblr.com.
It has only been a year since this 23-year-old has surfaced on our radar, but in that year, the gentleman known as South London Ordnance (he prefers to remain anonymous) has garnered support from acts like Claude VonStroke, Mary Anne Hobbs, Mosca, Jamie XX, Richie Hawtin, and plenty more big names. His first release on 2nd Drop infused UK funky and garage elements, but that isn’t all he’s known for. The post-grad is also praised for his marriage of house and techno that can only be defined as heavily “bass-centric.” With his finger directly on the pulse of where production is currently going, it will be exciting to watch how South London Ordnance will lead the musical trend. With a release on Scuba’s Hotflush Recordings due out in early March, it looks like 2013 is only going to cement this budding new talent.
As ever, London is brimming with underground talent, serving as a divining rod for what’s next while creating all sorts of new sounds and themes. South London Ordnance is one such up-and-coming producer DJ who is making big waves. With only a few EPs to his name, he is already talk of the town (with a little help from a very respectful Boiler Room session).
