Time Out presents The Other Side: London mixed by Damian Lazarus

The Other Side, a joint venture between Time Out and Resist Music is an interactive guide to the bleeding edge of the world's great cities. Utilizing the Dual-Disc format, each edition of The Other Side is comprised of two key elements: a mixed CD compiled by a native audio pioneer and a DVD guide to the "other side" of the city - a visual handbook for both the frequent flyer and the armchair traveller.

The Other Side kicks off with a trio of releases - the series started its journey in New York with Fischerspooner, and continues with stop overs in Paris and London. The London Guide is presented by that ruler of the underground Damian Lazarus. As a DJ, Lazarus can be found entertaining the world's more hedonistic dancefloors, but for the Other Side, he takes a more 'home listening' approach, introducing an enchanting blend of genres including folktronica from Boom Bip feat Gruff Rhys, lush electronics from current press darling Nathan Fake, Nu-Soul from Ty, and even tracks from the Magic Numbers and Yazoo feature alongside artists one is more likely to associate with Lazarus such as Heim, Cassy and Ada.

The DVD on the flip side won't tell you about Big Ben or the Tate. Like a friend who has lived in the city all their life, it gives insider tips on the coolest shops, hotels, bars, restaurants and more. Each section has an interactive video feature, featuring some fantastic insider picks. In addition, the booklet/poster inside gives comprehensive listings plus a map of the city, making this the ultimate travel companion for the savvy, fashion conscious visitor to London.

The Other Side – London is released on 24th July 2006.
