LAUNCH PARTY HIGHLIGHTS:
FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE:
Following on from ‘reassembling' Formula for our launch party, we got in touch with Dusted and asked them if we could reassemble them for our next event and pay tribute.
They said YES!
(Cue hysterical cheering and deranged clapping from us).
In true Dance Assembly fashion, we've tracked down the former Dusted DJs and pinched a typical Dusted headliner. They've all agreed to put on their Dusted gladrags for one, final, Mr Sheen-free hurrah....
| | | THE BALLROOM | | |
• The HOXTON WHORES headlining and flying back from Brazil to perform a classics set.
• Dusted head honcho, Dan De Sausmarez, comes back to spin some classics!
• The majestic Henry Burrows dusting off his Dusted vinyl and playing extended sets.
• DJing stalwart Scott Lummes showing us how he managed to be a Dusted mainstay for God-knows-how-many-years(!)
• Former Dusted man, Stu Hinge, will be returning to the venue where he helped co-found Formula precisely 10 years ago to the day. That's gonna be pretty emotional....
• Ex-Dusted clubber, Simon Francis, whose now carved a successful producing career as one half of DJ/producing duo, The Visionaires will be playing a Dusted anthems set.
• The Dance Assembly's chief minion, Muzz Khan, will be playing a Dusted clubbers' set and spinning the tracks he remembers losing his mind to!
• Launch party hero, Jim Norman, returns!!

With the press we got from our last event, we got talking about the good ol' days and how house classics were the order of the day. In the article, we went into detail about how there's a clear divide between the North's appreciation of house music and the South's. We've experienced both extensively and want to bring the North's unique, hedonistic, passionate and emotionally-charged atmosphere, DJs and music to London.
So for June’s CARD ROOM....
--- THE OLD SKOOL ASSEMBLY ---
While the Ballroom will continually tip its hat to the Noughties. What about the Nineties? We had to pay homage. We wanted to bring down some of our favourite DJs from the North. DJs who consistently rock it. DJs we want to give a platform to showcase their energy and stunning musical knowledge in the Big Smoke. We wanted a deeper, more nostalgic trip down memory lane....
Introducing, the headliner. They’re pretty big and they’ll be making – rather surprisingly – their London DJing début at The Dance Assembly. They were responsible for remixing pretty much every major house track in the 1990s.
They are DANCING DIVAZ.
Their most notable success came when they remixed The Original’s ‘I Luv U Baby’ in 1994 and it became a worldwide smash. Everything Dancing Divaz touched turned to gold. They had the Midas Touch. All the big guns asked them for a remix and as a result they worked their magic on the following: Baby D – Let Me Be Your Fantasy, Awesome 3 – Don’t Go, Dana Dawson – 3 Is Family, Todd Terry, Weekend, Judi Cheeks – Reach, Grace – Not Over Yet, Bobby Brown – Every Little Step, Technotronic – Pump Up The Jam, Alison Limerick – Where Love Lives... We could go on! If you’ve ever been in a nightclub, you‘ve danced to one of their remixes. Simple as that.
The supporting DJs are forces to be reckoned with, too, and are all local heroes in their respective towns and cities.
We have North East lads, Chris Ryan and Clint Hills, who’ve both been residents for the mammoth, northern, house classics institution, Retro. Representing Yorkshire is Wakefield DJ, Graham Preston and representing Lancashire will be Carl Andrew and Paul Cunliffe. Lake District lad, Andy Hackney returns for his second, consecutive T.D.A. gig.
June’s Card Room is petite and intimate, but make no mistake. The 70 people crammed in there will be dancing like there’s no tomorrow. We shit you not. Question is, will London be able to keep up? Only one way to found out....
See you on t’floor! All crazy 300 of you.....
