We play disco.
4 years not out. Or 4 years still out, depends how you look at it.
In 2015, we dreamt up an unpretentious party where we could play the disco and house records we love to people who have come together for one reason only: to dance.
On Friday August 9th, we celebrate 4 years of Love Come Down with a 7 hour journey through all things LCD at one of the only venues in London we feel truly reflects our vibe: The Cause.
Compared by Mixmag to the likes of Berghain and De School, The Cause is a straight-up, DIY venue with low ceilings, DJ booth in a cage in the middle of the dancefloor, a custom built Core soundsystem and a 5am finish. Put simply, we’re not sure if there’s a more authentic place to party in London.
Music-wise it’ll be what we always do: disco and house at peak-level quality-control with peak-level energy, all just below peak-level, er, level on that aforementioned custom soundsystem. As usual, all this will be supplied by our resident DJs. Not as usual: from a cage in the centre of the dancefloor.
**PLUS: as we’re celebrating 4 years of LCD, there will be a limited amount of tickets available for just £4 – our lowest entry price ever. And as always with The Cause, 50% of your booking fee will be donated directly to the mental health charities the venue has supported since its inception (for more info see The Cause website).**
But don’t take just our word for it, here’s what the press have said about The Cause since it launched, including RA's awesome introductory video...
The Cause is based in a former car-mechanics depot near Tottenham Hale station, and, as you'll see from this video introduction, it features a distinctive DJ booth in the centre of the space and a custom-built Core soundsystem.

"The best venues aren’t just clubs, they’re sensory overloads that keep you guessing what’s around every corner. Sure, the usual factors have to be present for a night to be good, but going to a venue that surprises, shocks and keeps you on your toes, that’s special. We’d file De School in that bracket, we’d almost certainly put Berghain in there, and over the next few years, Londoner’s will be calling The Cause their go-to spot."
"All the ingredients to create a genuine underground atmosphere (an unpretentious and welcoming attitude, an authentic post-industrial setting, chilled out security, no corporate branding, a custom-built system and a clientele who aren’t all-consumed by Instagram culture) can be found at The Cause."
"The view that surrounds us is one of concrete and metal; the only sign on the building reads London Tyres. But roll down a garage door and the new space unravels; a central DJ booth surrounded by a metal cage and a custom soundsystem hanging either side."
"The Cause’s impact on London’s clubbing landscape has gone far beyond its small 400-capacity basement size... the club has played a major role in bringing truly DIY parties to the fore, raising funds and awareness for their mental health charities (Mind in Haringey, CALM and Help Musicians) with every gig they hold."
"Take a bow, Tottenham. Your clubs are killing it right now."
“[The Cause has]...a thrillingly authentic, DIY feel to it that is all too lacking in other licensed London clubs, with lots of exposed concrete and all the allure and mystery that only a warehouse can provide.”
