Friday 18th November brings a new night to West London that will feature one of the most established stars in electronic dance music alongside 3 of the best up and coming deep/tech house DJâ€™s.
Tired of traipsing all the way across London to hear anything that doesnâ€™t resemble a Radio One playlist we at Milk It! purposely set about finding a venue in West London that would enable us to host a small, intimate party providing good quality deep/tech house music. In The Raving Buddha on the Goldhawk Road, Shepherdâ€™s Bush we believe we have found this venue.
With a full Funktion One sound system, reasonable drinks prices, fantastic pizzas, comfortable surroundings and most importantly four fantastic DJâ€™s we think we have all the ingredients to host a fantastic night. If youâ€™ve had a hard week at work and want to kick off the weekend in style or just want to let your hair down in a warm, friendly atmosphere then Milk It! could be just for you. Itâ€™s free all night so it wonâ€™t cost you a penny of your hard earned so what more could you ask for?
Our DJâ€™s on the nightâ€¦..
Inspired by her teenage years at the legendary HaÃ§ienda in Manchester she got her decks age 17, and after practising for years in her bedroom, by her twenties, Lottie had established herself firmly on the European club circuit
After a move down to London in 1993 Lottie got her big break at Turnmills with a weekly residency. She went on to guest at all the most exciting and talked about underground clubs across the World and then a hugely popular essential mix on Radio 1 showed her unique talents and broke her into the next level of headline DJ's.
Lottie furthermore went on to win Sony Ericsson Musik magazine best new DJ award, the Dancestar Best breakthrough DJ award, then followed the infamous missdemeanours night and label with Caroline Prothero. Artists featured within this highly successful project and who Lottie played alongside included: Daft Punk, Josh Wink, Felix Da Housecat, Layo&Bushwacka and Stuart Price amongst other regular missdemeanour guests at their weekly residency at Central Londons AKA.
Lottie who is possibly the most iconic female DJ to date, has since graced the cover of magazines I-DJ, DMC Update, Time Out, Jockey Slut, Muzik and more, has presented on BBC's Radio
1, including hosting the world-renowned Friday Night Essential Selection show for Pete Tong. During the past decade Lottie has DJ'd at every main club and event worldwide - including Glastonbury, Space (Ibiza), Pacha (worldwide) Tenax in Florence, The Loft in Barcelona, Sirena, Brazil, Miami, Fabric and Matter in London, twice at her favourite festival Exit, the Balaton festival Hungary and many, many more.
What can we say? An absolute legend and we are very lucky/proud to have her come and play!
Max Van Morrison (CSWS)
Max has Dj'd at many of the best clubs in London including FABRIC, SOSHO, EGG, CENTRO (AKA The End) 54, M.O.S, aswell as many U.K underground clubs such as STUDIO 11, WHIPPING HOUSE and as far a field as Georgia, Turkey, Hong Kong and the Phillippinnes. Through these many dj experiences he has learned a lot about making a crowd move or just creating the right soundscape for the evening. He Loves being a DJ and it shows in his music.
Hand picked by Milk It! to play our night. We heard him tear the roof off a venue in East London at Easter and we just knew that we had to get him down to play our party.
Natalie Coleman (Mooch)
Over the past year or so Natâ€™s name has been on the flyer of almost every London party worth its salt. Influenced by heavyweights such as Luciano, Queen Maxine and Loco Dice her unique style of driving minimal house, blended with playful techno has seen her rock packed out floors alongside the likes of Booka Shade, Martin Landsky, Hearthrob, Jerome Sydenham, Dinky, Mr C, tINI, Guti to name a few. Natâ€™s residency at Terry Hartâ€™s Redlight Afterhours has given her a platform on which to build a reputation for consistently delivering the goods. Adding to this with a slot at Booka Shade's Album Launch, Jaded and regular appearances for Genius, HouseFM and other London underground parties, she has cemented her place as one of Londonâ€™s rapidly rising stars.
Natâ€™s technical prowess and ability to work a crowd has taken
her to some of London's elite venues including T-Bar, Koko, Public life,Cable, Horse & Groom, Cargo, Herbal, The Lightbox, Corisca Studios and 2011 will no doubt see her continue to grow from strength to strength.
Another DJ who has been hand picked by Milk It! to represent our night. Natâ€™s mixing and tune selection is exquisite, she will definitely not disappoint!
Mark Tomlinson (Milk It!)
Resident and promoter of Milk It! Mark has been pumping basslines through soundsystems of clubs, house parties and his bedroom for years â˜º Starting out as a Hardcore/D&B DJ and playing raves such as The Drum Project and Dusk till Dawn he has recently switched to his new sound of deep, techy, rolling grooves. With him kicking off proceedings, we should be guaranteed to get the night off to a good start.
Looking forward to seeing you all there â˜º
