Oslo`s Øyvind Morken (pronounced Oy-vind) works the dance floor in the most unexpected ways. A true DJ at heart, with focus on programing and selection, topped with technical flair and a connection with the crowd that can't be analysed. See him play three times in a week, and you won't see him play the same set twice. With several weekly and monthly residencies behind him and a steady stream of gigs around Europe, his all night long sets draws in a crowd of open-minded party freaks for nights of wild abandon, and where musical diversity and self-expression is encouraged.
Much like his DJing, his productions is just as varied in musical style, and has seen him produce tracks, remixes and DJ mixes for across the board labels such as; Moonlighting, Full Pupp, Mysticisms, Snick Snack, Gravity Graffiti, Rett i Fletta, Olsen and L.I.E.S.
"When I was 15 I was fired from my local youth club for not following the rules when DJing, Not much has changed since then" - Øyvind Morken
Mark Webster & Neill Rydings
30/12/2023 20:00 - 01:00 KC
Time for some Re-Verve-al Pressure! And an evening of soul, funk, jazz disco and house.
Mark Webster and Neill Rydings are both products of London’s 70’s/80’s club scene. An underground world of music that would blossom as celebrated Weekenders and Ibiza holidays.
Around 2000 they combined their talents to co-host a series of early evening sessions. Firstly, with one off parties in the City, then as part of the Qdos nights at Bridge & Tunnel in Shoreditch before taking up a Friday evening residency as Verve at the fabled basement bar 3 Blind Mice in Ravey Street.
Since then, Neill has been part of the Open Decks nights in Hackney and Vocal Booth Weekenders in Spain. While Mark has been utilizing his talents as a journalist and broadcaster. Now they’ve teamed up again to bring some of that old spirit to Spiritland.
New Year’s Eve at Spiritland King’s Cross with Oli Keens
NYE is usually a nightmare. This one won’t be.
This New Year’s Eve, we’ll be flipping Spiritland King’s Cross into full club mode: tables out, dancers in – like a scene from a Balearic remake of Footloose with cocktails and bubbles flowing all night. Capacity will be capped at just 100, so we’re creating a cute, intimate party in the centre of King’s Cross for discerning lovers of disco music.
We’re pleased to say that, having rebuffed increasingly desperate pleas from Jools Holland to appear on his annual Hootenanny, Oli Keens will be helming our soundsystem this NYE. Oli is a classy party starter, who plays parties as diverse as Pleasurehood at XOYO to Funk & Soul Weekender, Little Gay Brother to the nomadic London rave World Unknown.
He’ll be hosting from 8pm-1am with a fun rollercoaster ride through the disco universe, plus some unexpected detours and a few party games too. Round up your crew, grab your ticket and we’ll see you under the disco ball.
Tickets at a mere £20 & BF.
Spiritland present New Year’s Eve at Omeara
Eleven DJs, six hours, three rooms and the best party people around - this year Spiritland take over all three spaces at Omeara in Borough for a musical extravaganza to see out 2023.
Come and say farewell to the year with an almighty party across all three rooms, taking in House, Disco, Funk, Soul, Boogie, Hip Hop, Hi-NRG and Pop from some of London’s greatest DJs.
In the House room Luke Solomon, X-Press 2 and Hilit Kolet bring you six hours of jacking house action from start to finish.
Luke Solomon puts the lid on an almighty 2023, which has seen him win a Grammy for his production work with Beyonce, playing gigs at every significant nightclub from Berghain to Hï, and from Paris to Chicago to Glastonbury. Luke’s work stretches back to his infamous 90s mid week ‘Space’ parties with Kenny Hawkes, his seminal Classic Music Company label with Derrick Carter, his band Powerdance and his run of singles with Horse Meat Disco.
The last couple of years has seen his collaboration with friend and musical soulmate Honey Dijon reach new heights with his Grammy award-winning work on Beyonce’s most recent album Renaissance and Honey’s own Black Girl Magic album. Expect nothing less than immaculate music in one of the most intimate spaces he’ll play in London this year.
X-Press 2 have been at the vanguard of British electronic music for three decades now. In their time this accomplished pair has released four full length albums, which all combine powerful vocals with a wide variety of influences.
Both Rocky and Diesel have a truly pioneering spirit that fuelled early nineties underground anthems such as the percussive, US-influenced ‘Muzik Express’, the brooding moodiness of ’Kill 100’ and the classic single ‘Lazy’ with Talking Heads’ David Byrne. This year has seen the pair deliver big remixes for Gabriels, David Holmes, JIM and David Kitt and an album of brand new material, Thee.
Hilit Kolet has taken the year by storm with headline sets at fabric, Printworks, Koko, Ministry of Sound and Warehouse Project, and DJing alongside Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier. Her tough and jacking take on house in her productions has seen her releases garner support from Carl Cox, Radioslave, Laurent Garnier, Dennis Ferrer and Claude Von Stroke.
Industry folk have deemed Hilit Kolet ‘the next real thing’ but she’s been was part of the Spiritland story since the very earliest days.
Hilit radiates powerful energy from the booth, bringing her audience with her on a ride through dance music. We’re lucky to have her warming up things in our House room.
It’s a classic Room Two sound in the Funk & Soul room with four of London’s DJs playing deep and dirty Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop, Boogie and Electro jams.
Headliners Patrick Forge and Ross Allen need little introduction. Both immaculate tastemakers, radio presenters and DJs on the worldwide music scene, they bring their joint love of heavy warehouse sounds to our party for one night.
Mr Shiver is London’s go-to man for when a dancefloor needs igniting, playing consistently funky music across the genres. A headline set at Houghton Festival this year sealed his reputation as one of London’s great party DJs with an intimate sense of what makes a dancefloor move.
2023 is the year that Sarahtonin broke out from the up-and-coming tag and made a name for herself. With sets at Low Life and a regular show on Charlie Bones’ Do!! You!!! Radio, she is poised to explode into 2024 and we’re happy to be part of her story.
Finally, in the POP room, we’re keeping things extra sweet across two floors and an outdoor area.
Mike Menace is twelve years deep into mixing up Disco, Italo, Electronica and Indie around London. He likes to make you dance. But he also likes to surprise. As well as running his own Pink Glove nights he’s played avant-garde club nights Duckie and HomoElectric and can often be found soundtracking the weekend’s drag action at the legendary The Glory in East London. Expect an NYE set of classic cuts and hidden gold.
Emotional Pop join us from sunny Mancunia where they have been honing their sound of shameless pop gems from the vault, guaranteed to move body and soul.
Join us for this very special night to see the old year out and the new year in with Spiritland at Omeara.
Tickets are available at Seetickets right now starting at £30.
