Despite a captivating choice of club events to choose from, both here in London & across in Barcelona, we decide to dip our “Pick of The Day” toe into the wonderful waters of WAR, the party that not only breaks all boundaries but has broken attendance records month in month out, & it’s “Gangbang” event taking place tonight at East Bloc, WAR’s promoter & our Shoreditch son Kris Di Angelis welcoming a wealth of D.J.’s & hosts to make this THE place to be & be seen on the scene this Saturday, all detail a banner selection away opposite or an image click below, while we re-propel the PR beneath
With a strap-line that shouts “…Fuck Love, Make War…” you could easily be forgiven that this is a club of confrontation rather that cheerfulness, but in reality WAR is one of the most captivating clubs to hit the scene for a score or more of months, creator & promoter of WAR, our own Shoreditch son Kris Di Angelis having born the club out of the success that was MEAT, bringing many of the followers of the former with him, along with a handful of helpers come clubbing cogs that give the brand a familiar feel yet with some new & exciting additions that add an individual identity to that marvellous meet.
So with that mini intro done, let’s hand over to Kris to propel the WAR promo info, he saying of his club & tonight’s event…
WAR “Gangbang”; let’s come together for the heavyweight champion of all parties at host venue, East Bloc. Plus now we are bigger, stronger & hotter as we have got ourselves a new room, new guests, new sounds & new boys.
Firstly the main room features not only the established talents of WAR residents JoshYouAre (Circus/Your Mum’s House) and me, Kris Di Angelis (Room Service/Tramp) but we’re especially excited to have Jamie Ritchie (Slowpoke/Delirium) play a guest set of boy-banging beats! Fresh from smashing Lovebox on the This is…Circus stage (literally one of THE talking points from the whole day’s line up), the woman proved she’s got bigger balls than all the boys put together. Our dance floor is going to fucking erupt!
Then, in the second space, the R&B room, we’ve got our favourite hot boy Kingsley, who in a short time has become a much respected force of musical knowledge. His unique brand of old school R&B meets 80′s soul is teamed with Munroe Bergdorf’s one woman party machine gun set! This whole town is wrapped up in Munroe Madness! Joining them is me (again!) Kris Di Angelis, this time playing an R&B/UK Garage mini-set, one which has been over two years in the making as it took this long to find the right night, but finally it’s happening so grab it while you can.
And our new third room is going to be based on a Broken Disco/Deep House vibe, for which we’ve conscripted the talents of Tony Dunne (Substation/Decca) and Cathal (Dalston Superstore/Vogue Fabrics). Very few people know their shit musically better than Tony, and Cathal’s talents are well known throughout Shoreditch, regularly playing the best nights with the best taste in music we’ve ever heard. Cathal also produced the visuals for the live show at Lovebox featuring our girl Munroe! This room will be a UV den of inequity, what with all the free shots we’ll be giving out there throughout the night. It’s right next to the laughing gas station where Mad Dan will be ready to make you lose your mind 1 balloon at a time.
Of course we’ll be working hard on host JJ Clark to make sure the crowd is even hotter than it normally is. We’ll apologise in advance for the queues again but we say it every time, when it’s full it’s full. WAR attracts the best crowd from all over London so it’s natural for the door to be crrraaaazzzzyyyyyy! Luckily we have Jasmine from Room Service looking after everyone too so look hot, catch her eye, she’s the gatekeeper
Adam Khadaroo of My Human Activity (http://myhumanactivity.com) will be shooting amazing pictures throughout the night so fix yourself before you leave the house. You know all the hottest looks get the VIP treatment in our photo albums!
