SITUATION @ home w. matthew Burgess (lowlife/swarthy rogues) & Wandy (chibuku/heartbeat)
Sat 28th March
100-106 Leonard street, ec2a 4rh 8PM-4AM
Situation is a monthly night at Home in the heart of Shoreditch, serving up a musical melting pot of disco, italo, nu-disco, cosmic, 80’s Electronica and Balearic.
And who better to step up to this challenge than Matthew Burgess. Matthew is one half of the DJ duo Matthew & Jolyon, who are residents at one of the best underground parties in London - Lowlife - put on by Bill Brewster & Frank Broughton (Last Night A DJ Saved My Life). Between them they have been making people dance and lean over DJ booths to ask "what's that mate?" for over 15 years. They also own over 10,000 records. As well as DJing, Matthew and Jolyon make music under the name Swarthy Rogues. Their first track, the 'hippy disco' "Feel Like Loving You", was quickly picked up and signed to Matt Playfords 'Social Problem', with a release date set for March.
Supporting him on the night will be Wandy, who’s perhaps best known for his 9 year residency at the hugely eclectic Chibuku Shake Shake, which takes place at Fabric in London, and Barfly/Nation in Liverpool. He’s also weekly resident at Heartbeat, the Friday night disco/italo/vintage house night at Paradise, By Way of Kensal Green, where guests have so far included the likes of Dan Beaumont (Disco Bloodbath), Serge Santiago, Justin Robertson, Bill Brewster, Neil Thornton & Danny Clark (Tropicana/Hustle), Matty J & Ben Terry (Tirk), and El Harvo (Futureboogie). Over the years he’s also graced the decks of clubs/events such as Bugged Out, Mulletover, Creamfields, Sonar, Basics, Miami WMC, Club Vinyl (Poland), Expo (Ukraine), Sankeys, Jaded and Tropicana.
For the launch party we've got a special extended opening time of 4am, and its free entry all night long
