Dear friends, please join me at Mick's Garage in Hackney on Saturday 9th of November as I make an attempt to combine two of my favourite aspects of dance music - the all-night-long set and the great city of London - for one very special night only.
The first time I went to London was in 1997 - I bullied my Mum into waiting outside all the best record shops (s/o Mum) in which I spent a year’s paper route salary on records that I still play and love. Also distinctively remember eating my first crumpet.
My latest London visit was in March this year, when I finally got to play b2b with my friend Paramida at Corsica Studios.
In-between those two personal milestones hundreds of other life-changing events have happened to me in this crazy town - from seeing Villalobos at Fabric for my 20th birthday, to interviewing Tiga at Tate Gallery as a budding music journalist, or hearing Pedrodollar drop Kofi’s “Didn’t I” at one of the last Plastic People nights, no city has had as much influence on my dj stuff as LDN.
I’ll do my absolute best to channel this energy into 5 hours of party music at Mick’s Garage on Saturday 9th of November and I really hope I’ll see you there!
