Hold It Down..
A patchwork posse of nomadic DJs descending on nooks, crannies, back rooms and basements across the UK with the simple aim of turning up, playing records, sharing a cracking few hours with others and then shuffling off into the night. No frills, no gimmicks, just disco, house and techno with character, soul, vivacity and verve aimed squarely at the dancefloor, all haphazardly stitched together on the fly by residents with suitably bulging record collections to share..

Video killed the radio star! Fresh footage of idiots playing records!
In early 2013 Fishbeast Productions followed us across the UK for a gig-packed weekend armed with a handy camera to pick up the madness. Here are the results..
