Despacio play three huge shows at Camden's Roundhouse this week - and we've got three pairs of tickets to the final gig on Saturday (12 September) to give away. See details on how to enter below.

Despacio is the brainchild of former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy and  David and Stephen Dewaele from Soulwax (known as DJ collective 2ManyDJs).

Speaking to Gigwise about the origins of the project, Stephen said: "It's an idea that me, Dave and James have had for a while. We just said why can't we build a soundsystem so we can play the kind of music that we wouldn't normally play in normal DJ gigs. You know - a bit more of the rarer stuff and crazy vinyl that we have?

"I think that once James had finished with LCD, we bumped into him in London and he said 'I don't think you realise this, but I'm going to be in your neighbourhood a lot more so let's actually finish the things that we've been talking about for the last 10 years'.  We went to our house, set up our laptops and started hanging out a lot more."
