Let me tell you about three really fun parties - all happening in London over the next month - that I've been invited to play records at. First up, this coming Saturday night, is Hawaiian Bop
at The Bussey Building in Peckham. I'd heard a lot of great things about this night, so I was thrilled when Richio Suzuki asked me to join him, Oscar Romp and Miss Boogie B on DJ duties. This is a rare South London outing for me, plus I've got just the shirt.
I wasn't long legally an adult when I saw Pulp Fiction at the cinemas - not that they were overly strict about checking such things back then. It had a pretty big impact on me, particularly the soundtrack, which I borrowed heavily from when I first started DJing. Well, the more things change, the more they stay the same. I still include tunes from the Pulp Fiction soundtrack in my sets, alongside plenty that sound like they could be. As Heavy Sugar DJs, between and after the bands and dance troupes, Fritz and I are offering a whole night of Pulp Fiction and Tarantino inspired records at Paper Dress Vintage on April 18th
A Curious Invitation
events are always a blast. They incorporate cabaret, live bands, performance art, nudity, exotic animals, hot tubs and more. Everyone is dressed in all their finery and wearing masks is obligatory. On Friday May 8th their annual spring masked ball will be held in a huge old theatre in Elephant & Castle. I'll be spinning an upbeat set of wild and weird sounds to bring this pagan themed night of debauchery home.
