VENUE CHANGE - DEX NOT OPEN THIS WEEKEND - MOVED TO THE BALLROOM AT THE DOGSTAR
Due to circumstances beyond our control, Dex Club (and the Prince pub below) are unable to open this weekend. We were only informed about it late last night, and have been frantically looking round to find an alternative venue in the vicinity, not the easiest task with it being a Saturday night & Halloween, but we have managed to persuade the legendary Dogstar pub, just down the road on Coldharbour Lane, to lend us their Ballroom, complete with chandeliers et al plus a 3k rig!

The lineup remains unchanged - Justin Robertson and Eskimo Twins are still headlining, plus Casio Social Club and the residents. This will be a great opportunity to see a big line-up in such a small space...
After an amazing Slide summer at Dex with road block parties featuring Greg Wilson, Tom Middleton and Paul Woolford, we are back for our annual Halloween shindig at Dex 12 months after the brilliant Rex The Dog show. Fancy dress is optional, but we expect you all to get involved on the 80s tip, think Beetlejuice, Jason, Adam Ant etc for inspiration.
On deck duty we have the ubiquitous Justin Robertson retunring to Dex after he played for us 18 months ago. Justin's career in dance music dates all the way back to the Madchester days when he was spinning at clubs like Spice and Most Excellent, often frequented by two lads called Tom and Ed who would later become The Chemical Brothers. Now based in London, Justin fulfills roles as DJ, producer and lead singer of band Thee Earls.
As a DJ, Justin wears several hats besides the naff one on his head. Regulars to London nights Bugged Out and Together will be familiar with his mixture of ravey acid techno and electronic house while those who frequent Gay Mod and Sunday Best will know him for his eclectic sets of reggae, northern soul and pop.
In the studio, Robertson has reworked Bjork, Felix Da Housecat, Chicken Lips and Kiki & Silversurfer. He also released an album of primitive house and new wave disco 'Justin Robertson presents Revtone' on Nuphonic in 2001. Robertson also penned 'Push and Shove' the gospel-tinged song on Fatboy Slim's fourth album 'Palookaville'.
Alongside Justin are Wax:On residents and all round good guys Eskimo Twins. Fresh (well, relatively) from their summer residency at Ibiza’s ‘Reclaim the Dancefloor’ and DJ bookings up and down the UK and Europe the duo have just released their ‘Judas / Droid’ EP featuring a host of top drawer remixes including offerings from Justin Robertson and Matt Walsh. 2010 had also seen the Twins complete a guest mix for Radio 1, appear at festivals across the UK and Europe as well as performing DJ sets up and down the country, as they continue to shape themelves as one of the underground's most wanted.
