Printworks has locked DJ Koze, Artwork and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs for the venue's New Year’s Day party.
The names don't stop there, either. The London address will host the unarguably exciting prospect of a b2b between Phantasy Sound bossman Erol Alkan, who just unveiled his first solo material in five years, and acclaimed Israeli duo, Red Axes.
Erol Alkan has teased his first solo material in five years.

Much-loved London festival Field Day is leaving its long-term home of Victoria Park in 2018.
The new location is still under wraps, but the 2018 edition will be taking place over the weekend of Saturday 2nd June.
Field Day is renowned as an eclectic festival with electronic music very much at its core. The first ever Field Day in August 2007 featured then Trash resident Erol Alkan and Electreland among others.
More information on 2017’s line-up as we get it.
Daft Punk’s ‘The Brainwasher’ is set to receive an Erol Alkan ‘Horrorhouse Dub’ rework. The remix is one of 20 set to appear on Alkan’s ‘Reworks Volume 1’ release.
Alkan has chosen cuts from across the musical spectrum to contort, with indie rock (Tame Impala, Hot Chop, Franz Ferdinand, Yeah Yeah Yeah) representing a significant portion of the collection. Edits of Lindstrøm and Justice also made the discs.
A remixer of his own caliber, Alkan will be taking a unique production approach to each selection.
XOYO London's next resident has been revealed as Danilo Plessow aka Motor City Drum Ensemble today (Monday 21st August), with the German disco selector set to take over on Fridays from October to December.

Erol Alkan has compiled an ongoing Spotify playlist of classic tunes from much-loved London clubnight Trash, the party he was resident DJ at from '97 to 2007.
The playlist includes tracks from Brian Eno, Sisters of Mercy, LCD Soundsystem and many more — the music has been compiled by Erol this time round, but will hopefully see selections from fellow Trash residents Rory Phillips and The Lovely Jonjo as its updated.
