Decked Out, the pioneering DJ/artist agency that launched in London in 2000, celebrates its 10th anniversary with what is sure to be the party of the decade with a line up that features Justice, Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Dave Clarke and Crookers amongst many others.
Party promoters Bugged Out conceived the idea of Decked Out towards the end of 1999 noticing more and more of their regulars DJ’s were becoming recording artists in need of professional scheduling and artist development. Decked Out joined forces with Primary International - through a long standing relationship with MD Peter Elliot – who gave the agency the weight and experience to realise the idea. Martje Kremers was the first agent on board who looked after the likes of Bugged Out regulars Dave Clarke and Justin Robertson. James Mac swiftly followed a few months later.
Over the ensuing years Decked Out’s roster has read like a Who’s Who of cutting edge dance. Laetitia Descouens joined in 2008 and currently looks after Joakim, In Flagranti, The Proxy, Hannah Holland, Disco Bloodbath and Little Boots’ dj sets. Primary's
Peter Elliot has dj sets from Digitalism, Fred Deakin and Basement Jaxx on Decked Out and Cris Hearn - who looks after LCD Soundsystem, New Young Pony Club and more - has DJ sets from MSTRKFRT Late of the Pier and Ladytron as well as Mark Ronson and Rob Da Bank on the roster.
Martje’s roster forms the line up for the party at the Coronet on February 5th. And what a line up! Most of the DJ’s will be playing either special sets or joining forces. In the main room Justice’s Xavier will play with Erol Alkan, Busy P from Ed Banger is playing a special French Touch set, Crookers are playing techno, Dave Clarke electro and Boys Noise & DJ Mehdi are playing vinyl only. Brodinski will hook up with DJ Feadz and The Glimmers and Aeroplane are already perfectly formed duos and the spectacularly named Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo from The Bloody Beetroots will conclude the night. In room 2 playing through a Function One sound-system are Headman, JoJo De Freq, Rory Phillips, Midfield General, Mickey Moonlight and Decked Out’s first signing Justin Robertson.
All DJ's will also all be giving up their fees as all proceeds from this special night will go towards local charity Kids Company.
