Joining forces for a special festive triple-header on the 19th are three of the Horse & Groom’s freshest parties of 2009: Spin Out Records, Dropout and This Is Not A Rave.
Spin Out have had a bumper year with their bi-monthly parties at the Horse and Groom and Ministry as well as trips to Ibiza, while their label has released a swathe of ass-shaking house music, with Adam Shaw’s Seshing currently riding high in the charts and 2010 set to see them hit the 40 release mark. This month their resident DJs are joined by hot-shot duo Maime.
Dropout’s story began in early 2008, bringing together three East Londoners on a path from Stoke Newington to the heart of Shoreditch and a monthly shindig heavy on quality and light on attitude, with house and techno laid down by Craig Torrance, Louche residents Josh Tweek and Brinzley Kazak, Disassociates, Tom Real and Landed’s Nathan Kyle.
New Kids on the block This Is Not A Rave return to the Horse for their monthly work out session. Tear-ups at the Egg, 333, The Star of Bethnal Green and other East End institutions have earned them a fierce reputation. They’ve had the likes of Trevor Loveys, Lee Mortimer, Idiotproof, and most recently KiD COLA and Genuine Guy, over to spin some fat beats. This time it’s all about the the men behind the headliners …
After a year of bringing the finest guests to the venue, it's the residents that rule the roost this month, with Spinout taking over downstairs and Dropout and TINAR up top, bringing you the finest house, electro and techiness from 8-4 with a host of surprises and giveaways in store to celebrate the last Saturday before Christmas. Unwrap yourselves and head down for eight hours of festive shenanigans.
Dropout, Spin out, cuz This Is Not A Rave!
