Hi Hannah, you’re playing at the Dalston Superstore pub later this month at the Bugged Out Weekender at Butlins, which is pretty awesome. Did you ever go to Butlins as a kid and imagine yourself there years later surrounded by ravers?
Yeah really can't wait to get to Butlins and play with the DSS crew! I've never been there before, but I imagine it will be like the Dirty Dancing film!
Being a bit of a local legend, you always seem to play a variety of venues from clubs to warehouse parties to pubs, even playing inside a giant disco bubble this New Years Eve! What do you get the most kick out of: home turf or something a bit unique?
Wherever people are up for it is all good by me! There's a very special feeling playing on home soil, but super fun doing things that are unique… a disused prison was one of my favorites.
What exciting acts have you got coming up on your record label Batty Bass?
Next up we have a exciting duo called The Carry Nation from New York's ballroom scene. Plus I’m about to launch a new sister label with my fellow resident DJ Deboa…. all will be revealed shortly!
Who do you think is the most innovative DJ at the moment, like someone you’d change plans to go see?
Dixon at Panorama Bar in Berlin is a spiritual experience!
And finally, have you got a secret tune hiding specially in your record box for your set at the pub at Bugged Out? And, as it’s a pub, in a ‘drinkify’ style, what cocktail would you drink to it?
That would be telling!
A Lee Scratch Berry... full of rum and ginger beer and other delicious ingredients... invented by Dan Beaumont!
Dalston Superstore takes over the pub at The Bugged Out Weekender with special guests Hannah Holland (Batty Bass), Severino (Horse Meat Disco) and Superstore guvnors Dan Beaumont & Mikki Most (Trailer Trash) on Saturday 21st January - plus we're throwing a pool party in the afternoon!
