Princess Julia is a mainstay of London’s queer underground. A model, DJ and “first lady of fashion’ she’s hasn’t spent a night in since 1977. She’s a regular on the front row, a champion of avant garde designers and a regular DJ at the likes of The Glory and Dalston Superstore.

Wayne Shires has been putting on the very best in queer parties since the late ’80’s hosting legendary nights at Substation, Crash, The Cock and his clubs East Bloc and Brut. He’s relocated to Hastings these days where he runs Queer On The Pier, the annual all day festival featuring queer cabaret and DJs and The Trinity Town House.

After the panel, DJ Mike Menace will showcase tunes from Box Of Sin plus his choice of tracks across the genres featured from Hi-NRG to Divas. Tickets very limited - follow the link and buy yours now.

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)

His esteemed labels Freerange and Delusions Of Grandeur continue to help break incredible new music and equally impressive acts such as Detroit Swindle, Tornado Wallace and Session Victim. From his UK base, Jimpster has become a standard-bearer and custodian of the authentic house sound, and carries this flag to the four corners of the world.

He always injects warmth, depth, soul, sincerity and attitude to both his productions and his DJ sets, and has done for the last three decades at a world-class level.

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.

We host a launch event for SONLIFE’s album, out on Chris Coco's record label. SONLIFE is an eight track LP that spans genres from Downtempo to Jazz, and is an amalgamation of live instrumentation, field recordings and samples. A lot of the tracks on the album started out as very simple ideas; repetitive, single, distorted loops - “very odd and rough ideas conjured up in the middle of the night in my early twenties”.

He originally imagined the project being an experimental solo project in 2015, trying out new sounds and genres. The tracks were back under wraps for a few years when he took a break from making music, and when he returned, they were all reimagined with a brand new life.

The album has heavy influences from the likes of Massive Attack, “Black Sands”-era Bonobo, Portico Quartet and the more dance orientated musicians such as Overmono and Mount Kimbie. Join us for a full album playback and DJ set.
