HARDLIFE is a brand-spanking new Dalston party formed by DJs Emma, Rob Mathie, Sean Clare, Höhle and promoter Paul Riddle.
The experienced crew bring a very modern take on the classic house sounds of Chicago and Detroit with some beatdown disco vibrations. Think early Cajual vocals, Salsoul screamers and vintage Moodymann 12s and you’ll start to get a feel for what’s in their bags.
Resident with the legendary Chibuku parties in Liverpool for 8 years, Emma's played alongside many of our heroes and has become a mainstay of the legendary Garden Festival boat parties in Croatia. Now living in London we've made it our business to snap her up as Hardlife resident.
As DJ and promoter of Edinburgh's solescience Rob played alongside Maurice Fulton, Paul Woolford and Fudge Fingas and even warmed up for Harri & Dom at the Subclub. Hardlife is a daily operation for this guy
Fresh from a recent warmup slot for Chez Damier at Back2Basics Sean's best known for the energetic bounce of his peaktime sets at the much missed De La Techa parties. An understated legend.
As resident DJs of the massive City Fly nights Höhle's move to London has already turned heads and their skills as producers have already seen them remix Detroit legend Rick Wade. Watch out for these young turks.
