Monday

Mixmag Party







Yesterday to mark yet another Monday off work (for some, not for me...) Mixmag hosted a fantastic day party in the heart of East London, Shoreditch. The old Shoreditch tube was transformed into a ravers paradise with the old tube line decked out so that you could dance on the stairs with the sun light beaming on your face. Not a cloud in the sky and a mix of techno, house and disco, the venue soon packed out by 5pm, sunglasses everywhere and tippled of Strawberry Kopperberg and Majitos. The crowd were fun loving, trendy east Londoners with the occasional Essex guys and gals who were out in force with their Fake Bake. Standing behind the decks, watching the crowd get down to disco was no other than Hervé. With Moet chilling on the decks and the sun going down, it really was a tremendous afternoon spent in the heart of London.


After a quick trip back to Dalston for pre drinking before we headed back East, we dropped into Village Underground to see Dubfire. Jaded’s very on Raymundo was opening the night which after a few hours was packed to the brim with the German’s biggest fans. Those who had seen the 4 day weekend in, in style were in force with their sunglasses and stomping boots. The sound system was not the best I had heard – having a conversation while standing in front of the speaker was a bit disappointing, but as soon as Dubfire came on the stage they seemed to had turned it up a notch. There was a few technical difficulties, resulting in one build up to a track lasting around 10 minutes, which caused me to slow down my dancing to a point of standing still and aiding, hand on hip. After a few slow burners, the good Dubfire we all know and love brought the crowd back from the dead with a 2 hour set.
The morning was complemented by an after party at Cable’s, Jaded. The morning of techno and house is always a great way to get ready for the week ahead..
