Melt 8 @ Brand New Venue 3 min Walk from Livepool St Station!!!!
Ho, ho, ho! T’is almost the season to be jolly and boy, does Melt HQ like to get festive! Having come of age with a historic b2b performance from messrs DJ Qu and Efdemin, the night is now looking to rise up from the basement that’s served us so well. We’ll definitely be in a new intimate venue for this party and who better to help us get on down in our manger than Cocoon’s shining star, Dinky!
The Christmas instalment will take place on 8th December, and whilst we can’t promise you too many carols, it’ll no doubt be big on beats. Melt was busy representing at Distortion festival in Copenhagen earlier this year, where we caught Dinky working both the crowd and a seriously bang on trend hair cut. Her rousing tech-house set, in tow with boyfriend Matthew Styles, was comfortably one of the best we witnessed so she was an absolute shoe-in for the crimbo special.
Supporting Dinky on the night will be electronic music aficionado, Didier Allyne. This Paris-based player has serious scene credentials, having fine tuned his game with regular slots at the notorious Rex club in Paris over the past 2 decades. He also finds time to run the house label Syncrophone, together with a record store that’s played host to house music doyennes such as Carl Craig! You bet we’re thrilled to have him share his vast experience with you all this yuletide.
Also present will be our now infamous residents, the three wise DJs! The duo with more cool than a freezer, Monika Ross and Maura will be back, well rested after their birthday after-party shenanigans. As will Arnaud Le-Texier with his own special brand of French fancy.
So come all ye faithful and snap up your tickets! Because your presence, as ever, is the biggest gift.
