  • East London venue The Horse & Groom will host the launch of DarkStarr's Psychedelic Disco-Tech: They Live By the Night compilation this Saturday. Production and DJ team DarkStarr, formed of Ashley Beedle and Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy, hope to bring a different take on the genre to London's well established disco revivalism scene via their newly-minted residency at The Horse & Groom. The pair both contribute years of experience and knowledge to the project; longtime UK producer and X-Press 2 alum Ashley Beedle has an active interest in disco that stems back to the 1980s, and Bitches Brew label owner Cosmo hosts the Journey Into The Light parties, which bring disco legend David Mancuso to London four times a year. She also co-produced Mancuso's The Loft compilation series. At the launch party this weekend, DarkStarr will showcase their signature blend of cosmic disco, house, psychedelic and balearic, with warm-up support from James Morrison. Tickets for the DarkStarr Psychedelic Disco-Tech launch party are available here on RA.
