We return to Lisbon for our third warehouse party of the year on Friday 6th October - this time headlined by house music legend Jimpster (Freerange Records / Delusions Of Grandeur) with support from Jorge Caiado (Carpets & Snares / PT)

Support comes from Lisbon’s own Jorge Caiado (Carpet & Snares Records / Groovement / Inner Balance)
With his first record released in 2012, Caiado carries with him the musical and technical baggage of a heavy weight, and propel sit with the emotion and enthusiasm for his craft of someone who falls in love with music everyday as if it was the first time.
His focus and drive still sees him finding time to be the label manager and executive producer for the Portuguese Groovement label and also weave the tapestry of his own record shop in Lisbon – Carpet & Snares Records – a hub for players and new comers in Lisbon’s underground music scene.
