Curious People are David and Colin who come from the arse end of London. We decided you needed to know the true meaning of H.O.U.S.E! So, born out of the love of DJing we’ve put together www.curious-people.com from which you can listen or download our mix tapes, comprising of current contemporary dance music, cheeky edits and seminal disco classics. Each month, in turn we unleash our mixes from the Curious People studio, these are meticulously thrown together solely for your listening pleasure, our only brief is H.O.U.S.E!
Spread the word!
Occasionally we take Curious People out on to the road and in recent years we have played alongside The Revenge, I-cube, Move D, kyle Hall and Swayzak as well as throwing our own parties in run down back rooms of dodgy pubs.
