Ollys Disco presents a party for the people with a diverse soundtrack of electronic music and Special Guest DJ Josh Tweek (Louche Leeds/Magicbag). Expect some deep, dark, downright dirty house music to make you tap your feet and shake yo body. We'll also be raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust by giving them all the ticket proceeds.
As mentioned above, heading the line up and playing an exclusive 2 hour set is none other than Josh Tweek (magicbag/louche) one half of the finest underground house night in the north, Louche. Recent sets at Lightbox, Digital, and of course Secret Garden Party have warmed Josh up for the intimate setting of Bethnal Green Working Men's club.
Lending able support is Oxford emigré TESLA (lostboyzclub). Sets at Take Control and Bangers & Fash landed him a residency at the infamous Lost Boyz Club sharing slots with the likes of Grum, Urchins and Late of the Pier. Coming off the back of a recent set for Friday Night Fist Fight at Catch and a support slot with Boys Noize, Tesla brings influences from a broad taste for disco, house and a smattering of deeper techno.
Rounding up the bill and kicking off the party are residents Olly Murphy and Toby Wareham, AKA Softpaw & SlowTown, with their usual blend of deep house, techno and electronic funk.
SPECIAL GUEST - JOSH TWEEK BIO:
Getting the DJing bug from an early age, Josh has been honing his skills on wax and cds long before he moved to Leeds, his new home. Getting his big break working under Tim Sheridan's notorious VeryVeryWrongIndeed nights, his deep twisted melodies and percussive grooves found the perfect setting under the Watergate-esque lights of the Mint Club in Leeds.
Sharing the booth with the likes of Seth Troxler, Lee Foss and, memorably, an outstanding back to back set with the mighty Mathias Kaden back in May, Josh's sets flex their muscles across a broad spectrum of house, disco and funk
We are very proud to offer a unique and unconventional venue for our inaugural party - the Bethnal Green Working Men's Club. Situated in the heart of East London's thriving underground music scene, it's an institution that's run since way back in 1953. Don't expect no lary cockneys and scummy pool tables though. The club has long since been refurbished to become a hot spot for for offbeat art shows by day and small club events by night, and with its dusty old lampshades and camp-as plush red carpets and drapes, it reeks of retro appeal
Of course, we'll be dropping in over the next month to weave our patchworky magic all over the place, and after we're done with our banners, streamers and fairy lights, it'll be a far cry from its humble beginnings in the 50s...
