Eclair Fifi rocks a party with a swagger few can match.

We are on our travels! We've been hearing good things about parties at WIRE so we thought that we wouldn't pass up the opportunity of bringing some Hope Works flavour to the place.
We want to keep it focused, with decent length sets for selectors that we bring to the club. Its going to be an opportunity for selectors to stretch out and invite us into their sound so we can explore, and they can thoroughly take us on a journey.
We start off a run of shows at WIRE with Eclair Fifi!!!!
Eclair Fifi (AKA Clair Stirling) was in recent years the proud host her own BBC Radio One show as part of In New DJs We Trust and regular cover shows - as well as a LuckyMe residency at Rinse FM. Introduced to dance music from an early age through her parents interest in Detroit Techno and Chicago House. At 16 years old she held down a pirate show on “Interface’ – one of the worlds first radio stations broadcasting online. She dj’d at some the hardest, most reputable warehouse techno, Ghettotech and hardcore nights in Glasgow before being recognised in other scenes for her encyclopedic knowledge of Latin Freestyle, Italo, Rap, Electro & RnB. As an in demand club dj she currently holds down residencies for Paris Social Club as well as Hoya:Hoya in Manchester. She has recorded mixes for Juno, FACT, Truants and URB and was Azealia Banks‘ go-to DJ for her special Mermaid’s Ball Party in London. Currently studying Illustration & Visual Communication at Edinburgh College of Art – she is a regular contributor to the aesthetics of the label, working on production design and styling for music videos, designing guest artist tees for Bleep.com and designer of Baauer’s recent laser etch 12” vinyl, Yolo Bear art and sleeve artwork for Machinedrum's "Vapor City" album on Ninja Tune. Music, art & fashion fit together effortlessly with Clair, the LuckyMe resident DJ.

In Support we have Hope Works main programmer and resident Lo Shea plus his co-resident and Sheffield legend Chris Duckenfield who has made Hope Works his home since it began 5 years ago.
Lo Shea has had an incredibly busy year programming Hope Works and the new No Bounds Festival in Sheffield while still making time for a new release on Rekids due out this October. His relentless output be it music or event programming has made a huge impact on the Sheffield scene and shows no sign of stopping.
Chris Duckenfield is still a dj playing all over the world since his first records with Rich Benson as RAC gripped us all. Still on heavy rotation in the record bags of everyone from Steffi and Martyn to Anastasia kristensen and Saoirse. He's a hugely respected dj worldwide. We invite you to come and see why:)
See you on the floor!
