London promoters Broken & Uneven are to return with a plethora of premiere electronic nights with their series The Hydra - and 2013's incarnation is astonishing.

18 events run from between 24th August 2013 and 1st January 2014 over a range of venues around London; from way out East at Autumn Street Studio, to Wapping's Studio Spaces, the Village Underground that needs no introduction - and South of the river hasn't been neglected with nights at Brixton Electric and Vauxhall's Fire.

Some of the announced acts featured prominently in our Albums of 2012 such as John Talabot, Andy Stott, Daphni and Actress with others (surely) to follow for our 2013 list (hi James Holden) - others include Kode9, Kassem Mosse, Walls, Theo Parrish, and Demdike Stare. The pick of the nights for us is arguably on 23rd November that boasts two of these acts, with the full line-up James Holden, Luke Abbott and Daphni at Studio Spaces alongside Border Community. Though a special shout-out to the Ninja Tune night on 6th December – The Hydra: present Solid Steel 25th Anniversary.
