Nextup clubnight: Hairbrain presents The Glimmers

Hairbrain have an impeccable track record. Their events are sporadic but always of the highest calibre – take their last guests, Scottish duo Optimo – where every punter leaves with a smile and the feeling they’ve been part of something special. One of their first guests was HudMo himself, gracing the tiny confines of Saki Bar. […]

Throwback: Last Magpie – Club Whore

Last Magpie is an intriguing producer as much of his work over the past few years borders on eclectic and exploratory and yet it never quite reaches that level.

Throwback: Steffi @ Joshua Brooks

Dirty techno from the likes of Steffi is best suited to a place which is ugly, dark and loud. Luckily Joshua Brooks ticks these boxes… Everyone familiar with techno has heard of the Berghain, a formidable Berlin super club which opens on Thursdays and shuts three days later, clubbing warriors emerging triumphant after dancing away the past […]
