Expressing a musical venture that draws from the combined roots of emotive storytelling and captivating rhythm, Nairo is an Italo/Moroccan-born, London based electronic music artist and live act.
His work has appeared on labels such as Steyoyoke, Somatic & KDB Records, and has received worldwide support from household DJs in the dance music scene.
Drawing upon eclectic influences and years of exploring the freshest and most thoughtful artists and labels, Nairo has developed a complex, fluid signature sound which will resonate with true fans of modern deep house and melodic techno.
From bedroom DJ to rooftop rave, Fabïan came on to the scene by literally shouting from his own rooftop; setting up a powerful sound system, his risky (live-streamed) two-hour set ricocheted off the, once peaceful, bricks and mortar of his surrounding urban London neighbourhood. It may have got him into trouble... But it got him noticed.
Classically trained on trumpet with a history of jazz and improv, much of Fabïan's taste in mixing and listening continues to revolve around his instrumental roots, with a deep devotion to cultural dynamics, encapsulating emotive melodies, curating sounds of raw and intense storytelling.
Asch Pintura (real name Ashley Gustave) was born and raised in Nyack, New York. Initially drawn to trance, she fell into the technicolour dynamism and emotion found in deep house and was introduced to artists such as Yotto, Eelke Kleijn, Mees Salome, Jeremy Olander and Fat Sushi to name a few.
In 2018, her passion for music and production inspired her to leave home to attend the University of West London and study Live Sound Production.
Further, galvanized by the UK underground club scene, Gustave began to learn and perform as a DJ, ultimately taking up the Asch Pintura moniker in 2019.
She has played several gigs around London, including Fu Manchu bar in Clapham and The Underdog in Kings Cross.
She also hosts and produces her own show, Pintura Radio, as head of DJs at Blast Radio, where she showcases new melodic, deep and progressive sounds. Asch has recently been featured on the #AnjunaUnlocked Twitch stream and has recently rebranded her radio show under the new name "REFUGE". Pintura is on a journey to perfect her craft and share the music she’s passionate about wherever she can.
Turkish born, Selin Asar is a London based, music educator, singer and DJ. Spiritually savouring East and West, harmonising Organic, Ethnic & Afro House and Melodic Techno vibes, with some oriental twist to it, that naturally runs in her veins. Coming from a land of Sufi mystics and Shaman's spirits, she offers a hypnotising universal music experience, one that will let your spirit travel far away.
Born in Essex and raised between the Uk and France, William’s early influences lie in Rock, Jazz and Indie Music. Entering his first club, Le Village, at 13 y/p in Juan Les Pins, France, he soon developed a love of European and Electro House, inspired by the likes of Joachim Garraud and The Bloody Beetroots.
Now, no stranger to London’s underground circuit, William crafts deep, emotive and provocative sets, unconstrained by genre, tapping downtempo, deep house, electronica, melodic house and rolling techno.
With experience on festival stages such as Camp Wildfire and London venues including The Steelyard’s Room 1, he is comfortable taking control of a crowd and leading him into a rabbit hole of electronic music.
Orange Yard Soho is a premium club venue based in the heart of Soho, with a brand new Funktion-One sound system, full lighting rig and full bar area complete with booth seating and lounge area.
Building on their highly respected club programme at the ‘mother’ venue E1/Studio Spaces, Orange Yard offers a new clubbing experience in the heart of Soho, with high profile DJs regularly playing intimate shows late into the night.
April to July
We are friends that met in London a few years ago and share the passion for music, events and immersive experiences. Our story started in a small flat in North London in 2017, organising a birthday party for friends and family, which finished with four DJs and 80 people in a small club in King Cross, April to July was born.
After experimenting with different electronic music genres, April to July found its root in the combination of deep and progressive house style with melodic techno. Showcasing local and international DJs, our goal is to create unforgettable occasions through the magic of music to thrill, to entertain and to build a community.
Join us for our next musical journey.
April to July family
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
