Richard Sen is one of our country's true originals - as a DJ, producer and graffiti artist, he's released music as Padded Cell (with Neil Beatnik) and Bronx Dogs. A DJ set from Richard can stretch from psyched out rock, leftfield funk and disco, to new wave and more. We're thrilled to have him play Spiritland on a Friday night.
SPIRITLAND TALKS: Roddy Doyle & John Doran
For the next Spiritland Talks, Roddy Doyle is joined by John Doran (The Quietus) for a talk about his musical inner life to celebrate the publication of his new novel, Smile on Thursday September 7th from 6 - 8.30pm.
Smile is the stunning new story from Roddy Doyle – winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction. It bears all of his trademarks – humour, razor-sharp dialogue, a superb evocation of childhood – but this is unlike anything he has written before.
The ticket price includes a cocktail on arrival and the exclusive opportunity to purchase the novel at a discount and have it signed by the author. Tickets are limited to just 80 and available via the link here.
Taste-maker, label boss, producer, DJ, remixer. Jamie Odell aka Jimpster is one the most revered deep house producer/DJs operating on the scene today. His esteemed labels Freerange and Delusions Of Grandeur are known for consistently high quality releases and we're thrilled to have him making his debut during our big week of anniversary celebrations.

We're super excited to be joined by one the country's great DJs and producers, Mark E. Making his name with a series of influential and imaginative re-edits, his work has moved on to immaculate productions and remixes on Ghostly and his own label, MERC. Come and hear his style on the Spiritland system on a Friday night.
Diggers Dozen is built around a simple premise - each DJ plays twelve records each, on two turntables. No compilations, no bootlegs, no reissues. Patrick, Ben & Chris from Diggers Dozen join us for an afternoon into evening of groovy obscurities from their vaults.
Sasa (In Flagranti)
We are joined by the inimitable Sasa Crnobrnja from Swiss duo In Flagranti, who along with production and DJ partner Alex Gloor has created some of the grooviest dancefloor music in recent years, with a heavy Italo influence. His record collection is also suitable intense. Come and hear the good stuff at his Spiritland debut.
FURTHER: DJ Food and Pete Williams
- Space Music
Come and get spaced out at Spiritland. Further - the new project by DJ Food and Pete Williams - comes to Spiritland for a Sunday evening of far out sounds and psychedelic projections. Combining decades worth of digging, visual and projection skills the two DJs bring their creation to Spiritland, the perfect place to host their venture, equal parts audio and visual trip.
Ben Smith is best known for his long-running collaboration with Paul 'Mudd' Murphy, whose recent album Gorthleck has been on heavy rotation here since release. He'll be playing a set influenced by his love of kosmiche, Balearica, neo-folk, ambient, OSTs, deep synth patches and more.
The Hydra: Dolan Bergin & Ajay Jayaram
Together, Dolan and Ajay are the creative forces behind The Hydra, one of London's most forward thinking and ambitious club promoters. They're also heavyweight selectors themselves. Come and hear them put the Spiritland system through its paces on a Saturday night.
Making his Spiritland debut on Friday is Guilhem Monin, who already feels like part of the family having played alongside John Gomez, Donna Leake, Nick the Record, Esa, Deborah Ipekel, Andrew Ashong and more. Check out his Social Joy radio show and record label for a taste of his style.
