Jaguar

The latest in incredible guests to grace the decks of our lazerpit is Mixmag, Radio 1 and Reprezent Radio wunderkind Jaguar! She’s spent her summer lighting up stages from Secret Garden Party to V Fest, as well as hosting her own radio show and regular Lab LDN parties! Her enviable energy and pure love of music is undeniable in her banging sets, which span the breadth of house, disco, techno and beyond! In between duties in her crazy schedule, we caught up to chat dream radio guests, career highlights and plans for Friday’s  Wut Club!



Hi Jaguar! We’re so excited to have you join us soon for Wut Club! How has your 2017 been?

Hey! Thank you for having me. I’m really excited to play, as I love going out in Dalston!

2017 has been a bit mad. I moved to London from Leeds back in January and since then I have completely immersed myself within music and radio. My day-job is with BBC Music Introducing – which involves listening to a lot of undiscovered artists and helping get them played on Radio 1 and 1Xtra. I’m also a writer for Mixmag and have started hosting our weekly office party, The Lab LDN – so if you’re ever in need of a Friday afternoon sesh, let me know!

DJ-wise, I’ve been playing loads of festivals this year including Secret Garden Party and V Fest. A highlight was at Parklife in Manchester back in June. I played the Smirnoff House stage before My Nu Leng and Barely Legal and it was the biggest crowd I’ve ever played to. Everyone was going for it! This was actually where I met the amazing ABSOLUTE who hooked me up with the WUT Club booking.

Can you tell us a bit about your new show on Reprezent Radio?

So I’ve just launched a new show on Reprezent Radio which is every other Saturday from 9-11PM. Rep is such a vibrant station to be a part of, and the show is pretty much an extension of my personality. It’s upbeat, bouncy and full of brand new, electrifying tracks from the house/disco/techno world. I bloody love a night out, so this show is all about bringing the vibes on Saturday night! The reception has been great so far. I had Phonox resident HAAi as my guest last week, which was super fun, and I’ve got Fono doing a guest mix for the next show on 7 October!

You have already achieved so much as a young DJ and radio presenter – what has been your career highlight so far?

The ultimate highlight was last November when I won two Student Radio Awards. I owe so much to student radio which I became engulfed in during my time studying at Leeds Uni. This is how I got into DJing, broadcasting and throwing parties, so to be nationally recognised by the industry was a huge deal for me! I was awarded Gold Best Specialist Music show and Silver Best Female – I remember 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq gave me my awards and was really complimentary. It felt a bit like a dream but it was honestly one of the greatest moments of my life that I’ll never forget and has led to some amazing opportunities. I am so grateful.

You are a member of Carly Wilford’s amazing Sister crew. How important are collaborations like this for you as a DJ?

Carly is such an incredible woman who I really look up to. She gave me my first London gig earlier this year which was in the main room at XOYO. Sister is an amazing movement to be a part of and I’m excited to see what happens with it.

I think collaborating is super important for a DJ – whether it’s putting on nights together, playing back-to-back, or doing guest mixes on your mate’s radio show. I always learn so much from working with other people. I also go to these amazing monthly, all-female workshops that Red Bull Studios put on called Normal Not Novelty. I’ve made some genuine friends at these events who I’ve ended up collaborating with. I’d really recommend going to stuff like this!

Who are a few of your dream radio guests?

I’m a huuuuge fan of The Black Madonna. Musically she is perfection, but I also love everything she stands for, so she would be number one! I’d love to have Fatima Yamaha do a session as he’s one of my favourite producers and has a sick set up when he plays live. Would also love to have Annie Mac on, as she is my broadcasting hero.

Favourite track of 2017?

I mean it changes every day but have been rinsing Big Miz – The Bomb a lot in my sets recently! Lauren Lo Sung’s Tresor is one of my favourites too.

What is your earliest musical memory?

When I got an iPod for my tenth birthday! I used to religiously listen to CDs on my little Walkman but then suddenly had all of my music in one place and I became obsessed with it! I was always infatuated by music from a young age, and new technology only enhanced that. My first album was Black Eyed Peas ‘Elephunk’ and I remember I would listen to it on my iPod on repeat haha!

You host Mixmag’s weekly Lab LDN show – who have been some of your favourite guests?

It’s an honour to be able to introduce the best DJs in the world to the Lab LDN audience. It’s a real milestone for DJs, and there have been some amazing sets. Rex The Dog earlier this year was incredible, Flava D was fun, Erick Morrillo was cool, and Gideön last week was sick too. It felt like a real house party vibe in our office!

If you had a time machine and could go dancing anywhere/anywhen, where would you go?

I’d definitely go back to Paradise Garage in New York and get silly in the 80s.

One track that you can’t wait to unleash on the Superstore lazerpit?

Fallout – The Morning After (Purple Disco Machine Re Work)


Catch Jaguar at Wut Club this Friday 29 September from 9pm-3am at Dalston Superstore!

 

Ceri

The latest in female house music doyennes to join the Fèmmme Fraîche headliner hall of fame is London based DJ, producer and festival-head Ceri! Her rising reputation has seen her grace the decks at parties as far flung as Back To Basics in Leeds, DC10 in Ibiza, La Santanera in Mexico and Ipse in Berlin and beyond. She will be taking the helm for the twelfth instalment of East London’s fraîchest lez fest this Saturday, with her signature selection of deep and moody, atmospheric grooves, heavyweight peak time house fodder and psychotropic techno abstractions. We caught up with her to chat festival tales, women in music, and plans for Fèmmme Fraîche!

Hi Ceri! We’re so excited to have you join us soon for Fèmmme Fraîche

Aw thank you. I’m really looking forward to partying with you lovelies, and I love that sweaty basement at Dalston Superstore, so can’t wait!

Can you tell us a bit about Jaded, the Sunday morning afterparty rave at Corsica where you played as a resident?

I first played for them in 2011, at Cable, which was a real dream come true for me. I first experienced Jaded when it was at The End /AKA which was a huge clubbing inspiration for me, alongside Fabric and T Bar. I was a massive raver and used to end up at Jaded most weeks. They had such an amazing music policy, with the best names in house and techno often turning up to play unannounced.

When I first met the promoter Krista I didn’t tell her I was a DJ, but then I ended up giving Ray – their longest running resident – a lift in my car, and I had one of my mixes on because I was secretly wanting to hear what he thought of it without him knowing it was me! He actually asked me whose mix it was and when I told him it was mine he didn’t believe me. He told Krista and a few months later, after seeing I was getting some other gigs around London they booked me to play for them for the first time.

I was so happy and continued playing for them as a guest for a few years until they asked me to be a resident in 2014 / 2015. Initially it was supposed to be for one year but it went on for longer.

I loved being able to play nine hour sets in the second room at Corsica. It’s not often as a DJ these days you get to play that long. So I am really thankful for them believing in me and giving me the chance to go on long journeys with their crowd, who were really receptive.

When it comes to making your own music, can you tell us a bit about your production process?

It’s really random. Some tracks can take a few days, others a few months! Usually I am inspired by something specific; a mood, a sample or a vocal, and I start from there and build around it. I usually play the bass on my Sub 37 because I love bass, and for me bass is the most important part of the track, followed by the drums. I like to use a combination of drum machines – an XBase 09 and sampled 808 and 909 hits that I programme in. I have some other equipment I use for synths too and usually do the high end last.

I use a combination of logic and Ableton. If I am feeling uninspired, I will just play around with a few samples I’ve ‘stolen’ or recordings I’ve made and play around with them until I feel an idea coming on.

When I am in the zone it literally just flows out of me without me even knowing what’s happening, I wish I knew how to make it happen more often!

Favourite track of 2017?

I couldn’t choose one! Totally dependent on where I am, who I’m with etc…

You’ve been involved in Redbull’s Normal Not Novelty campaign – can you tell us a bit about why the project is important to you?

It’s a good way of inspiring and educating people about our industry. I like to teach the younger generation about where house music came from and why it’s so important politically and sociologically. A lot of people who claim to be into the music have no idea about how it evolved and it’s history of bringing people together and breaking down barriers in society. So I think it’s as important to spread that message as well as teach people about music production processes and how to get inspiration and creative ideas etc.

You’ve played quite a few festivals over the years, from Secret Garden Party to Lovebox and even Burning Man! What’s your craziest festival story?

I have so many it’s hard to choose one. The one most people think is funny and/or gross is how I got my Burning Man name ‘Kevin the Dancing Poo’. Which involved magic mushrooms and a portaloo. 

Haha! We won’t ask…

If you could change one thing about London’s club culture, what would it be?

Ban phones.

If you had a time machine and could go dancing anywhere/anywhen, where would you go?

Either to Paradise Garage in New York in  the 80s, or to an early 19th century ballroom dance. 

We hear you have a new label dropping soon, can you tell us a bit about it? 

It’s called ‘Find Your Own’ records and the first release is out in October featuring two tracks from me and a Fred P Reshape. The label is primarily for me to release my own music. I want each release to be three tracks that suit different environments. It will still be house and techno, but different shades of it that work in different situations. I prefer EPs that have variety, rather than three tracks that are really similar.

I am really happy to have Fred P involved with the first release because I have loved his music for many years and respect him hugely not just musically but also personally. Moving forwards I want to involved more people who have been inspiring to me or who I believe are making music that will stand the test of time.

Who’s tunes will you be unleashing on the Superstore lazerpit?

I usually throw in some K-Hand or Mr G at least once in most of my sets, I love everything they do. Tomoki Tamura is another favourite, and D’Julz. They are all amazing at making classic sounding house and techno that is timeless and works on the dancefloor.


Catch Ceri at Fèmmme Fraîche this Saturday 9 September from 9pm-3am at Dalston Superstore!

 

Heretic

One of Dalston Superstore’s most influential party institutions in recent memory is no doubt Florian Dovillez’s Homodrop. Over the past two years the promoter and DJ has welcomed a veritable who’s who of house and techno artists from the UK, Europe and beyond to repeatedly blow the lid clean off our lazerpit. This month sees the celebration of two years of brilliant parties, and for the special occasion, Florian has called in crowd favourite Heretic to return for a thumping basement sweat sesh. We sat down with the prolific DJ and producer to find out what makes him tick, and what he has up his sleeve for the birthday this Saturday!



Hi Heretic! We’re super excited to have you play at Dalston Superstore! Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Hello, I’m Tim! Producer of electronic tomfoolery, DJ of very special interest music & I’m based in the artistically ever-declining / property developer utopia that is East London.

If you had to trace your DJ career back to one track that started it all, what would it be?

Well, I never really set out to be a DJ. Eskimo Twins, of which I am one half, started life as a live band but our manager made us learn to DJ. So that was actually the impetus to start playing records at people, but one track the we’d always shoe-horn into every set in the early days was Aspic by SMD. It still holds some pretty special memories, having played it at thousands of people, and at empty rooms.

What is the weirdest/best place you’ve ever played?

Played in an ex-army tank sprayed gold once at Secret Garden party once, that was a bit weird.

You recently remixed Andrew Weatherall’s Frankfurt Advice, how did you guys come to be working together?

I first met Andrew when we played with him at Slide in Brixton a couple of years ago. He opened by giving us a salute for a remix we’d just done and we’ve sort of stayed friends ever since. He did a remix of my track Pollux last year and it was an absolute honour to return the favour for him this year.

If you could pick any other artist, alive or dead, to collaborate with, who would it be?

With 2016 being the utterly shit year that it has been, I suppose I have a wider pool of dead geniuses to choose from.. I’ll go with George Martin though, my Beatles obsession is where my love of music started I think.

If you had a time machine and could go dancing anywhere/when, where would you go?

I’d love to go & check out The Dancing Plague of 1518 in Strasbourg. No one can say for sure why it happened, but the most likely cause was ergot fungi, which probably grew on their bread. It has a very similar makeup to LSD, so everyone was off their tits dancing maniacally. Sounds like a decent rave to me.

I think that might just be the most original answer we’ve ever had to that question!! What is your go-to track to rescue a waning dance floor?

Currently, I’d go with Dance.. While The Record Spins by Kornel Kovacs, it’s a groovy beast.

Favourite track of the year?

That’s really tough, there’s been such a monumental amount of great music out this year, so I’m not going to overthink this one. First one that comes to mind is Black Sands by Mikron. Belter.

Can you let us in on any plans you have in the pipeline for 2017?

Sure, I’m actually going to try and slow down on the release front in 2017. I feel the last 12 months have been a bit of an overkill with the amount of records I’ve put out and I’m keen to put more time and energy into my live show. So, I’ve currently only got one EP lined up in 2017 for the chaps at Ransom Note Records, and I’ll probably only do another two after that next year. I’ll have my head down, making the live show as good as it can be.

Can you give us a hint of what you have in store for Homodrop’s Second Birthday?

At this point, I honestly have no idea! I’ve played Homodrop a couple of times so I know what the vibe is likely to be, but you never know. I’ll take my ‘The Very Best of Drive Time: 40 Driving Classics & Feel Good Anthems’ CD along, but we’ll see where the night goes…


Catch Heretic at Homodrop’s Second Birthday this Saturday 5 November from 9pm-4am at Dalston Superstore!

 

Clam Jam Big Bitch Single Release

The two mega-babes behind Clam Jam have certainly been busy this year, and we’re only just over half way through! In between booking festival slots at Lovebox and Secret Garden Party and club nights at XOYO and East Bloc, they’ve gone all ‘Yonce on us and sprung us with a surprise single release! We sat down to chat party plans, inspiration and …uh… Victoria Sponge!


Bica and Cathal, your Clam Jam babe-duo is such a big part of the success of your parties. How did you two come together?
 

B: I bought a box of cereal one day, which is strange in itself considering I am a full English breakfast kinda gal, and lo and behold he was the free gift in it. I kinda liked him so thought I would keep him.

C: Whilst trawling the internet I stumbled upon Serbianmidgetlover.com, placed a bid and won her for 2p and a ten pack of Richmond Menthol Super 10s. She seemed happy enough and I haven’t had the heart to get rid of her since then. They run a strict no exchange or return policy so we’ve been stuck together for years now.

We knew you could throw an amazing party, but had no idea you had a bloody single up your sleeves! How did this all come about?

C: Ah yes! Well… we had this tune in mind for a while, then our mate producer Alex Blanco, who had been  coming to cLAM jAM a while and loving what we played, suggested we all get in the studio……

B: …. and the rest is history.

Where did you draw inspiration for your video?

B: Cathal has been doing amazing video work forever now, for various personal and professional projects, bands, festivals and fashion designers. I love Victoria sponge…. And he loves to make me look demented!

C: There is no one simple answer for this, being that a ‘big bitch’ isn’t a comment about size I suppose.
Its about being fully saturated, excessive and comfortable in your tastes, sexual habits, body, sense of humour or unapologetic lack of it even. One man’s big bitch is another man’s cream cake.  

2015 is looking set to be a big year for Clam Jam! Can you tell us a bit about your party plans for the next few month?

C: We are keeping our Thursday nights, OBVS, at the Mothership Superstore which just gets better and more lushed-out by the minute. We are playing at this year’s Lovebox for the Little Gay Brother Vegas Room on the Friday 17 July, which we are  excited about. Then the weekend after we are set to get all at one with nature, ahem, and play at the Secret Garden Party Festival ! 

B: Also, this is super secret still but we’ll let ya onto something… cLAM jAM will be doing something bigger and better in an unusual location in August. Can’t say more than that, but watch his space.

You have an extra-special guest planned for the debut of your single. Can you tell us a bit about her ?

B: Yep! Super excited that we got a DJ set for the single launch courtesy of the fabulous Perera Elsewhere from the band Yahcoozi.

C: We’ve been following her for a while now, since she has done bits with our mate Hannah Holland, who in turn hooked us up, and we really wanted her to do the set for this night especially. 
Check her out – it’s gonna be ace! 

 

Join Bica, Cathal and Perera Elsewhere this Thursday 16 July for the Clam Jam Big Bitch single release party from 9pm-2:30am.

Little Gay Brother’s Festival Amazingness

Ahead of Little Gay Brother’s Lovebox extravaganza and afterparty right here at Dalston Superstore, we asked man behind the fun Clayton Wright to run through his fave queer festival acts…

By Clayton Wright

I love a festival. For me it’s where I can chuck a load of glitter over my face and go feral for a few days. Oh and I might see a band or two. This is my list of AMAZING FESTIVAL ACTS YOU SHOULD SEE BEFORE YOU DIE GIRL!

Scissors Sisters – V Festival 2004

 

In 2004 I was in love with Jake Sheers. I loved his hair, his face, his music and his arse in tight jeans. I stood at the back of the festival and I desperately wanted to get to the front. ‘A friend’ was peeing in a cup because the toilets were crazy busy. Before he knew what was happening my friends and I grab him by the scruff of his neck and push him forward. He peed his way all the way to the front of the stage. I was front row to stare at Jake. Unfortunately standing behind us were a lot of angry chavs now covered in piss. Soz V. 

Róisín Murphy – 2008

 

I saw Róisín at a little festival called Bloom. It rained and there must of been only about 1000 people there max. It’s impossible to find a clip of Róisín at that festival but she was amazing. She had a bag of clothes and hats at the side of the stage and kept rushing to the edge of the stage to change her costumers herself. I loved how incredibly low budget the show was but her performance was world class and so were her hats. 

Florence and the Machine – 2009 Bestival


I was lucky enough to hang out with Flo back stage at Camp Bestival one year. I was later told she was later found naked in a someone’s garden off site. She’s never confirmed this, but she does still owe me 20 quid.

Grace Jones –  Lovebox 2010 


The woman hula hoops as she sings????? What more could you ask for? I told so many lies to get back stage that year to meet her that I’m surprised I don’t have boils on my tongue, but who cares it’s GRACE JONES!?????

Hercules & Love Affair – Lovebox 2010 

“Miss Honey, Miss Honey” This clip is just hilarious and reminds of what an incredible year for gay artists to showcase at Lovebox in 2010. This is definitely one act you should have a gay love affair with. I definitely have… but that’s another story. Andy Butler is playing with us at Bearded Kitten’s Colosillyum stage this year at Secret Garden Party.

Blondie – Secret Garden Party 2011


This festival is my spiritual home. 2012 was the first year we started the gay bar at SGP and Blondie was headlining the main stage. SGP has always been an eclectic mix of people and music. As you watch this clip you see a crowd covered in feathers, sequins and glitter. We love SGP and we love Blondie. See you at the Gay Bar. 

Diana Ross

The great thing about seeing any legendary gay icon or band is that you know in amongst at least the first 100 people near the stage is a hottie ready and willing to cop off with you whilst you both hold hands and sing along to ‘I’m Coming Out’. I need to do this before I die. If Diana does a UK festival you can find me always by the left hand speaker, boys. 

Erasure


I love these guys so so much. They still rock out in sequin costumes. Without a doubt on my list of gay festival acts to see before I die. 

Dolly Parton – Glastonbury 2014 


She sings, plays guitar and even raps. What could be gayer than watching the Queen of Dollywood surrounded by hundreds of trannies dressed up in cowboy hats immolating her highness? 

 Elton – Bestival 2013

OK so Elton is gayer than Dolly, but only just. You can catch Elton and our mate Bright Light x2 on tour in the UK this summer. 

Little Gay Brother at Secret Garden Party

Catch Little Gay Brother at Lovebox this weekend, 18th and 19th July at the washing machine stage in the Bearded Kitten Mansion and at ET Phone HOMO at Secret Garden Party 24th to 28th July. 

Chris Camplin Calendar

By Clayton Wright

Little Gay Brother are back at Dalston Superstore with their annual Slumber Party, and it’s also resident DJ and all round hottie Chris Camplin’s birthday. As well as being a superstar DJ, Chris is also the superstar of every gay man’s tumblr page. To celebrate the bearded man mountain himself, his pals that played at LGB throughout 2013 have picked their favourite Camplin photos. We thought they might make a nice calendar… What’s your favourite month?

January – Mr. Wright and Master Haze (Man Sushi)

Chris Camplin - January - Man Sushi

Dear Daddy Issues,
Here is a photo we like to call “Birthday Boy in Birthday Suit” haha.
Happy Birthday from your Little Gay Brothers, you’re growing up so fast and so is your beard.
P.S. please don’t go outside dressed in just rice and fish, you will freeze in January.
Love & Soy Sauce
Man Sushi x

February – Frank.co

Chris Camplin - February - Frankco

Happy Birthday Chris! I have said it a million times already, but I am so glad to have met you. You are one the coolest people I have met for a while. I am so grateful for your generosity, your love, your music and vibes. I hope life continues to treat you well brother man. BIG LOVE!
– Frank.co

March – Maze & Masters (Verity Mayes and Bryony Masters)

Chris Camplin - March - Maze & Masters

Of course you treat every day like a Lambrini and Pall Mall fuelled birthday binge, but here’s a special lesbian pussy stroke for the big one, big boy.
-Verity & Bryony. 

April – Severino – Horse Meat Disco

Chris Camplin - April - Severino

A man in a crispy white shirt and suit is always hot!
Buon compleanno gorgeous Chris.
Love Severino xxx

May – Wes db

Chris Camplin - May - Wes db

Day three at Secret Garden Party was when the fun really began! Happy Birthday Mr Camplin – Disco Legend! xx
-Mikki  

August – Bright Light, Bright Light

Chris Camplin - August - Bright Light Bright Light

You don’t often see pictures of Chris smiling! So when you see a picture that cracks the serious look, it’s a nice reminder that he’s quite funny, and while he spends a lot of time modelling and being composed, the other part of his life as a DJ isn’t necessarily as serious and well behaved.
Happy birthday sir. Give some good birthday face x
-Bright Light Bright Light 

September – Martyn Fitzgerald – Bender

Chris Camplin - September - Martyn Fitzgerald

I don’t know the context of this photo, or who the other bloke is, but there’s just something really wrong about it.  The one on the right has a whiff of an early ’80s BBC children’s TV presenter about him, and this is the photo to get him the sack…  Are they in a bath? The plant, the contented smiles, the neckerchiefs, the bubble bath on knee… it’s like a still from a weird Channel 4 program that got loads of complaints from Surrey. Chris, explain.
Happy, happy birthday!  I can’t remember your age, but I’m always surprised at how young you are  x
-Martyn 

October – Guy Williams

Chris Camplin - October - Guy Williams

Oi what you lookin’ at!?
Look forward to playing for your 50th xx
-Guy 

November – Meat Boys -Fannar Sveinn Gudmundsson and Adrian Lourie

Chris Camplin - November - Meat Boys

Til hammo med ammo elsku Chris. Minn heydur ad kynnast ter og spila vid hlid ter. Gangi ter allt sem best! An Icelandic message from Fannar. Much love xx. 

This is probably one of the first pictures of you I’d seen and to me it sums up exactly why your the epitome of a pinup. Happy Birthday Handsome Christopher. Loadsa Love Adrian (meatzine.com). xx

-Meat Boys

December – Terry Vietheer

Chris Camplin - December - Terry Vietheer

Happy birthday big man! Funny to think we met at a casting a couple of years ago and now playing music together around the world. Let the good times roll!
-Terry 

Plus cos it’s his birthday we found some that didn’t make the calendar but definitely need to be hung on someones wall…

Powders

Our friends at Little Gay Brother are not only busy preparing for their next party here on the 20th July, but also for their own special area at super-fun festival, Secret Garden Party! With Superstore boss Mikki Most joining them, we decided to get the lowdown on ‘Powders: The Laundrette That Never Sleeps’ from the horse’s unicorn’s mouth…
 
This year SECRET GARDEN PARTY celebrates Superstition and in a new venue for 2013 there is the perfect antidote to your superstitious minds. You can air your dirty laundry, touch wood and get lucky. 

Bearded Kitten’s LITTLE GAY BROTHER, who hosted the COMING OUT BAR in 2012 and are residents at Dalston Superstore, return to SGP with a venue based on the cult gay movie, My Beautiful Launderette. 

Little Gay Brother presents ‘Powders, The Laundrette That Never Sleeps’. It will be the place to get your sparkle, come out to your mates, be wet and wild, dance on washing machines and strip down to your tight whities. Come and get a right good scrub down by the studs and suds of the gay bar.
Ready to get you lathered up is your host Dave The Unicorn from the Colo-silly-um and his fag hag Dot Rotten who invite you to join the Glitter Army; but beware these under sexed laundrette ladies will have your pants off and counting your skins marks before you can say “Service Wash”. Expect day time exuberance and late night chaos in their Unicorn Disco with men offering you a free ‘Hand Wash’ while Kylie is probably stuck ‘Spinning Around’ inside a tumble dryer. 

Get ready for a RINSE OUT because they are bringing with them amazing DJs from the gay scene including Bright Light Bright Light (Another Night), David Oh (Songs of Praise), Frankco (Glamorous), Georgie Rogers (XFM), Laurent C (Discotec), Mikki Most (Trailer Trash) and Little Gay Brother resident DJs Chris Camplin and Terry Vietheer. 

If you can’t contain your excitement and you need to rip all your clothes off sooner and run away to their dirty disco party you can join them all for a ‘Pre-soak Party’ as they explore Secret Garden Party’s theme Superstition at DSS.

And if that doesn’t get you ultra-hyped for the festival, this brand new warm-up mix courtesy of Little Gay Brother resident Terry Vietheer should do the trick!
