Recent remixes include Metronomy, Time & Space Machine and Azari & lll. They also run their own 'Discotheque Wreckers' imprint, a home for their less known edits.

Boogie Cartel- The Boogie Cartel have been one of the success stories of this year, so it seems only right to have them welcoming in 2012 at The Horse and Groom. If you haven't been to a 'Boogie Cartel presents' night, where have you been hiding? The foursome's regular residents-only parties have been among the most intense disco get-downs of the year, and have had attracted the attention of DJs and clubbers alike. They've shared the decks with disco stalwarts like Greg Wilson, Yam Who? and Jacques Renault this year, as well as hitting the studio to flood the dancefloor with their own productions very soon. Expect a combination of disco, 80s electro and late-night soul forming their signature sound, ensuring not a single speck of dust is allowed to settle on the dancefloor.
Mark Pharoah- An aspiring DJ artist & Producer whom over a number of years has entertained a variety of crowds & lovers of house throughout the UK. For the love of House and his heavily influenced and energetic sets from the Detroit Black Music movement and not forgetting the balearic summer of love has led him to play alongside a number of esteemed DJ's such as Ray Mang, Grant Nelson, Trojan Sound System to name but a few. This year he set up Systematic putting together his own parties with the emphasis on providing deep sounds for a deep generation. If you like your house deep, dark and melodic then you won't go far wrong here.
