Throwing these parties is about going back to where and how we first started working together– Djing and throwing parties in the North East in our University days and then in London and Brighton when we moved to the South Coast. During our first 15 years, through the 90’s, we had Saturday night residencies at the legendary Zap, The Escape Club and The Ocean Rooms in Brighton, The Back Bar in Soho and Scaramanga @ The Dogstar, Brixton where we played with the likes of Basement Jaxx, Herbert, Etienne D’Cracy, Cassius, Dimitri From Paris and Rob Da Bank. We also played numerous bars, parties, wrote about clubs, record reviews and had charts in DJ mag, Mixmag and Muzik, worked in independent record stores and put on our own club nights, for the last of which, in 2003, we had DJ Harvey as a resident, done, mostly, under the name ‘Aitch’.
If you’ve been to one of our events before ‘Dawn Chorus @ St.Mary’s In The Castle, ‘Point of Decay’ in Bottle Alley or the first Something Unreal that SOLD OUT in 3 weeks you’ll know we try and create a complete experience in terms of the audio and visual but you may not have heard us play music before. As Dj’s, we play pretty much across the board, for us this party is all about rhythm, grooves and atmosphere. We’ll be playing vinyl all night long back to back, making subtle embellishments to the environment but the emphasis is on the dance floor and giving you the space to let go and loose yourself in the music.
The Printworks is unique for Hastings and a perfect space for dancing, it opened in 2015 and is 7 years in the making, nestled down a New York style back alley in the aptly named America Ground. The 300+ capacity bar and club boasts a big loft style dancefloor space which acts as a blank canvas for each party and creates an amazing warehouse style party atmosphere. The building also contains a B&B which is available if you want to go just a few flights of stairs after dancing all night long.
