Filth & Splendour
It’s been a fantastic year and after the stonking success of the London Fetish Weekend Ball held at Area, our next event will also be held at that same venue – note change of date from our usual first Saturday of the month.
Theme for December: Corsets, Corsets, Corsets! Women in corsets, men in corsets, rubber, leather, pvc corsets, Victorian corsets, modern day corsets, kinky corsets, Christmas corsets, big busty beautiful corsets and everything in between. Of course if you aren’t into wearing a corset and coming in theme then regular fetish wear is acceptable – but do try to make an effort! Imagination is encouraged and like most fetish clubs we do have a strict fetish dress code (NO Denim) and do ask that you make an effort.
Play and dance
This month on the dance floor we bring you a line up to die for.
Warming up the event is one of our favourite DJs, Simon Iridium. Simon has been DJing in London’s Fetish Clubs for more than 10 years, starting off at the infamous Wicked parties in Surrey. When we first opened our doors he was the first DJ asked to become a resident and has been bouncing around Subversion's various DJ booths ever since, spinning the tunes that drove the dance floor of London’s premiere Play meets Dance club into sweaty paroxysms of pleasure. He has also graced the turntables for London’s biggest annual fetish party ‘The Rubber Ball’ on several occasions and can be seen launching the dance floor of the already legendary ‘Imaginarium’ nights into the stratosphere. Renowned for his enthusiasm and energy behind the decks and his ear for the best new releases and remixes this is one DJ sure to get attendees dancing their heels into hedonist heaven (and leaving the ladies feet in dire need of pampering).

Headlining our December even is none other than Filth and Splendour. These guys are made up of the combined talents of Oli Cassidy and James Trystan, two great DJ producers whose events and releases have gathered a massive following in London’s rocking dance music scene.
They have both held residencies at some of London’s finest nightclubs - The Egg,
Ministry of Sound & Matter all helped to hone a sound that combines the energy
of house, the depth of techno and freshness of electro that’s been garnering support of big names as varied as Carl Cox, Markus Schulz, Claude Von Stroke, Kissy Sellout and Groove Armada. Their first release "Language" went straight on to Godskitchen’s Underground Album 2007. Here’s a promo video to get you excited http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDhFOcczJJ8 and their Sound Cloud page is here http://soundcloud.com/filth-splendour
Taking over from Filth & Splendour will be Subversion's Music Director Miles Gorfy. With over 15 years of experience playing nationally and internationally for all of the big name brands, his inimitable, uplifting and energetic style has established a reputation like no other. Aiming to bring the fun factor back to the dance floor, expect big bass lines, crazy samples and filthy beats for filthy minds. Trust us when we say that you WON’T be disappointed, although your feet may hate you afterwards!
Check out some of Mile’s stuff here http://www.youtube.com/user/TheMilesGorfy and his Sound Cloud page here http://soundcloud.com/miles-gorfy-b and joining Miles is none other than Piqué – he just can’t seem to get enough of us!
Piqué has rapidly become a firm favourite with the Subversion team and crowd alike. One of the brightest stars in the UK house music scene, Piqué has worked for the biggest brands in club land and toured the world with his trademark mix of house and electronic. A former Peach resident, Piqué gained popularity through a punishing DJ schedule in London and radio shows for Ministry of Sound and Slinky FM. A year’s residency at Pacha in Egypt’s Sharm el Sheikh saw Piqué rock the 5000+ capacity super club twice weekly for Ministry of Sound and Hed Kandi, earning him Mix magazine’s award for ‘Best International DJ’. You can check out some of his stuff here http://www.youtube.com/user/piqueofficial and his Sound Cloud is here http://soundcloud.com/pique.
For those of you who love to play there is a fully equipped massive dungeon area with loads of fantastic equipment by Playpenz and ambient music, a separate chill out area, a separate dance area with superb sound AND a separate couples’ room. Oh and don’t forget the ever popular dressing gowns we give out to those visiting the smoking area – everybody loves them.
For those of you who love to dance, our world class resident and guest DJs are renowned for tearing up the dance floor with some of the hardest, dirtiest breaks and beats around and never leave the dance floor anything but packed and pumping throughout the night.
We are already looking forward to seeing in the kinky Christmas with you – this event is always a popular one of the year so make sure you buy tickets in advance and watch out for those early bird discount tickets! See you all there!
