Tickets £5 Adv

Raime, Demdike Stare and Blackest Ever Black congregate for a seventh time, to play vinyl records, loudly. You can expect to hear the kind of sounds that inform their own releases, but beyond that there’s no policy, no programme, no promises. This is a night for 120 people who want to hear independent and idiosyncratic music from all quarters and all eras, in a basement with a bar… with the added bonus of the bank holiday Easter Friday.

£8 Before 11pm / £10 After

Amp+Deck are hosting a bi-monthly party with some tasty guest DJs, the next one up is headlined by Mark Seven who has been releasing some amazing records on his Parkway imprint of late inspired by the sounds he first fell in love with.These sounds emerged from the explosion of creativity that occurred post-Disco, when electronics became more affordable and when the music moved back underground, with names like Paul Simpson, Winston Jones and Boyd Jarvis, Emergency, Streetwise and Easy Street. Records with Herb “The Pump” Powers and exclusive edits and remixes of rare Black music releases of the 1980′s. Unsung tracks that fed into a sound that became House.A history that, without people like Mark, would have already been forgotten.

He is also probably one of the best selectors around. So we thought who better to guest at our opening party than the man himself?
