Hold It Down.. with Sugarhill Disco & Collect!

Mercifully our second month of sofa sessions at Liverpool’s Camp & Furnace was considerably less icy and frozen than January and our residents whipped up a great vibe elegantly weaving broken beats with downtempo oddities and lush deep house in front of the roaring fire.

Hold It Down.. with Slum Science

Winter is coming, the nights are drawing in and the fat man is packing his sleigh. It’s that time of year where everything gets a shade darker, and the clubs get really good, none more so than the dirty little dens of bassy iniquity like Red Rum.
