All Good ft. MIKE SERVITO (The Bunker, New York)
Friday 29th September 2017


Mike Servito is from a very special yet temporary and partially lost fertile crescent of techno / house / party DJing. It was a time when raves were still a fresh idea, almost felt like a revolution, and DJs like Claude Young, D Wynn, Derrick Carter and Mike Huckaby were informing an upcoming generation.

Book Club • BUTCH • 7th Birthday
Saturday 30th September 2017


We’ve only gone and booked BUTCH. This is gonna be ridiculous. You’re welcome. If you’re not familiar do your homework. Dope was probably the tune of last year, we heard it nearly every time we were out. The Black Madonna won Dekmantel when she dropped it in the Greenhouse. Signed to Seth Troxler’s Say It,Play It label, this is a party destroyer. Celebrating 7 years strong, and showing no sign of slowing down. Book Club is getting better with age. Expect the best in disco, house and techno. Expect a party.

BE CHARLOTTE (Doors 7pm)
Tuesday 24th October 2017


Be Charlotte is all about the damn good vibes.
TenementTV: She manages to capture the essence of modern day catchy pop yet is the furthest thing from frivolous or throwaway.
TheSkinny: The pastel haired, bespectacled Dundee teenager is a delightful breath of fresh air carving out soulful moments and never wavers in her momentum.
