Nick Elia (live)
Haunt two-storey venue with bar-restaurant on the ground floor and Void soundsystem equipped club at the basement will host Republic Artists for the last dance of 2017. For the night of underground house and techno music we invited long time Republic Artists residents and friends with Nick Elia, Arthur Keen and Thomas Tesla heading up proceedings. Our NYE playground is located in the heart of West-Hackney, between the thriving nightlife areas of Dalston and Stoke Newington. Hope you will like it ;-)

In 2006, Thomas Tesla started small events in Camden Town and Old Street which resulted in launching Republic Artists night at club Factory Vauxhall and record label 7 years later. Born in Prague, but artistically grown up in London he got a chance to dj at now defunct venues including Cross, Canvac and Key and during past 10 years at many major clubs in capital. Other gigs include trips to Czech Republic to his residency club Chapeau Rouge Prague, Poland, Spain (Amnesia), Austria, South Africa and most recently Germany where he performed in Berlin’s Tresor, Magdalena, Suicide Circus and Golden Gate. On the night expect 4/4 underground house and techno however Thomas has been seen to play boggie-disco and clasic jazz set too on a few occasions ;-) .
Arthur Keen, will be showcasing a more minimal and dark site of the genre. The mixture of deep underground grooves from Techno, Electronica and Tech House with melodic blends will surely suit the later hours of the night. His track’The Door’ released on Republic Artists Records has been supported and played by Laurent Garnier, Sacha, Betoko, Benoit, Technasia and Chris Fortier.
