Matt Tolfrey at Space January 1

Sure, the internet may be infinite, but all you laptop producers gotta understand it's not OK to digitally release whatever noise pollution creeps out of your MacBook. Frankly, it's time to stem the flow. Otherwise, like minimal-techno DJ Matt Tolfrey has said, "you're just filling up a virtual record shop full of shit."

If you're not already MySpace friends with the Nottingham-based Tolfrey, he's someone whose music-related advice should be heeded. With a name that's beginning to rank alongside Hawtin and Villalobos, the guy is a professional party-starter who also heads the Leftroom label, bouncing between continents to spread the good word about minimalism. Which is why, little laptoppers, you must join the accomplished Professor Tolfrey when he invades Space this Saturday. Maybe, just maybe, you'll finally learn the value of self control.
