Dance For Refuge x IWD with Gwenan, Nite Fleit & Special Guests

  • This March we return to London for our first fundraiser of 2019. In conjunction with International Women’s Day we're hosting a party at our favourite new London spot, FOLD. As a collective that aims to raise funds for the worst affected areas of the refugee crisis, this dance will see all profits being donated to Women For Refugee Women - a charity specialising in helping women of a refugee background both in and out of the UK. The first of our special guests to be announced is Berlin-based, Pickle Factory resident Gwenan. We've been a huge fan of what she's been doing for the last couple of years, but it was her standout Resident Advisor mix that made us HAVE to book her. We cannot wait to welcome her for the first time. Next up we're delighted to announce we'll be joined by Nite Fleit, the Australian DJ who made Europe her home in 2018 was originally known purely for her high octane DJ sets, but she showed with her fantastic 2018 debut on Steel City Dance Discs that she's a quality producer in her own right. We can't wait for her to close out proceedings at Fold! Alongside Gwenan and Nite Fleit, we're joined by Bristol-based DJ and illustrator Danielle. Over the past year, she’s gone from strength to strength, closing 2018 with an astounding Crack Magazine mix, contributing to the Oscillate mix series and being one of Mixmag’s artists to watch for 2019. Her seamless blend of sophisticated techno, house and everything (weird) in between makes her a perfect guest for the dark walls of FOLD, and we can’t wait to see what she gets up to... Our final guest, Liv Ayers will also be joining us for the second time. She joined us at Bussey Building back in 2017, since then the Rhythm Sister stalwarts stock has risen considerably and is one of our picks for 2019!
