Posts Tagged ‘The Shadow Lounge’
It started life at Lo-Profile on a Thursday, then found new legs at The Shadow Lounge on a Wednesday, but tonight see’s promoters L.a. & David Hart switch their Soho soiree back to Thursday’s, Gigolo the club that once again squares up against its counterpart on Greek St., we looking into this change & what it means for the Thursday night clubbing scene, while this “Cover Star” event makes our “Pick of The Day”, all the detail a banner selection away opposite or an image click below.
When the phrase “…Thursday’s have become the new Friday’s…” very much became a Soho reality with the launch of the still hugely successful Room Service, it came as no surprise that the heat would be turned up with some clubbing competition in the form of Gigolo, a concept developed & then launched at Lo-Profile by the boys behind ShootMeUp, David & L.a. Hart, their bold branded bash scoring initial successes & seemingly neatly rubbing shoulders with its counterpart across the other side of Soho. However, with a major part of the Gigolo concept being the propulsion of porn star action into the music mix, the team realised they needed to find a new home to deliver their dream to the full and in The Shadow Lounge, the Hart’s found their perfect bedfellow, even if it meant moving their weekly meet to a Wednesday. Yet while the home proved right, the more extrovert XXX rated action post midnight presenting none of the complications that Lo-Profile had carried, it seemed & ultimately proved that the midweek timing was always going to be limited in terms of numbers & popularity, even if there was little or no competition.
It was therefore inevitable and has come as no surprise that Gigolo once again has decided to switch back to Thursday’s, while retaining its brilliant bedfellow venue on Brewer St., which has excting prospects for not just upping the Thursday clubbing ante, but for no doubt increasing the footfall into Soho which still continues to miss both Profile & Lo-Profile. That said, Gigolo has interesting times ahead, especially given how successful that Room Service remains, but in the spirit of clubbing choice, it will and should certainly play its part, while like its counterpart, Gigolo certainly has a loyal following that the team have nurtured over its two years or so in equally successful existence. So, tonight marks a new beginning for this superb Shadow Lounge based Soho soiree, it’s “Cover Star” event welcoming back Athens based D.J. GSP to the decks, alongside relative new boy to the Gigolo residency team, Adam Watts, while all that XXX rated porn star action will continue as before, no doubt adding extra spice to the Thursday night clubbing mix, full details of tonight’s party available via the events page at https://www.facebook.com/events/519327474770591/.
So, as we sit on the sidelines from our hospital bed, we wish the Hart’s & the whole team at Gigolo & The Shadow Lounge all the best with the switch and hope that the promise of a boost to the Thursday Soho scene is spearheaded by this new slot selection. (DISCO MATT)
Getting back in our “Pick of The Day” feature grove, we head for the midweek marvel might that is Gigolo for today (Wed 6th Feb), a special double set by resident star spinner Aamyko complimenting super stud porn star & Greek god Leo Domenico, all the vent detail a banner selection away opposite or an image click below, while we summarise the detail beneath.

Continuing to find a new niche for our Best Bites within our weekend newsletter, this time we have decided to ditch the former format further, simplifying our selections into our top three choices of where to be & be seen on the scene, whether in London or internationally, we then squeezing in a small selection of short shouts along with news nibbles of some more February frolics to look forward to.
Well, the closure of Profile & Lo-Profile continues to leave us at sea with sustaining our former newsletter format of bringing you our Weekend Best Bites choices one each from Soho, Vauxhall & Shoreditch, last week seeing us introduce an international flavour, one we are keen to keep up. And a week on finds us with another fresh pair of eyes on the recommendations prize, deciding to ditch the former format further, making it as simply as possible, picking our top or the tree three from wherever they may be, the question remaining, will Vauxhall sweep the board or will our continental cousins get a look in?
So let’s get to answer that question, our first choice from Vauxhall, A:M making it here two weeks in a row, not least that there is big news on the promotions front, although for us mixed emotions as it seems that Steven Sharp, in our books the best in the game, is no longer the clubs promoter, this news having passed right under our radar save for an inkling when we saw this week’s events page. And as if we had already had enough bad news following those sudden Profile/Lo-Profile closures, this is a major blow both for the club and for the scene in general, Mr Sharp, without doubt, the most adept in PR, in artwork ideas, in networking, well in all aspects of promotion really, while its was Steven that turned the fortunes of A:M around, cleaning up its crowd act, focusing on the music and bringing in some big named guests to propel AM’s profile. So, it is a sad day indeed for us and we wish Steven well with his further promotional aspirations, while we are sure he will throw himself into his D.J.’ing & production with studio & playing partner George Sharp who together, naturally, make up The Sharp Boys.
With Steven gone , who has taken over?, Well by all accounts the marvellous Mauricio Ortiz has stepped into the breach and will, at least, be holding the fort while a fully fledged promoter can be found. That said, Mauricio’s experience n & around the promotions game speaks for itself, from SuperMartXe to Beyond, CasaLatina to Matinee, our brilliant Brazilian has seasoned promotional hands, while he is a real grafter, often being the one that puts in the hard work while others bask in the glory, so we feel that A:M is certainly in a safe pair of hands. So that’s the news, what about tomorrow’s (Fri 25th Jan) event?, well it is quite a special one, as it marks the long awaited & much anticipated return to the capitals clubbing circuit of international playboy D.J. Paul Heron, who had taken a leave of absence to get married & soak up the sun in Southern Africa. But he is back and headlining this event, which takes place at Fire in Vauxhall from 11 p.m., others on duty including D’Johnny, Matt Bogard & (wait for it) The Sharp Boys, while Onyx holds on by the skin of its teeth to the second lounge space, DMS serving the pop, while it’s tech & euphoric house heaven in the main room. Hosted by Andre Hellstrom & Louise Port, entry is free before 4am with a brand new Orange Nation membership card, otherwise with a flyer or ad its £3 before midnight, £6 before 5 a.m. and £10 after, while that full price £10 is for all others, further info out on the events page at https://facebook.com/events/322450467855010/.
One down, two to go and we stay in Vauxhall moving from Saturday to Sunday morning, which can only mean one thing, yes it’s Beyond which, in reality, is never far from our attention, even if NYD was the last time we trod its dancefloor boards. However, with Paris the first weekend, then DISH the second, plus with the prospect of a string of “Midnight” format frolics to contend with, we made it clear that we would give our favourite club of all time a bit of a break. Indeed on the subject of this “Midnight” format, we still can’t quite understand the package, a club that has always been in the amazing afterhours bracket, not once, twice or three times, but six in the last eight stretching an extra 4/5 hours back into Saturday, seems to us quite ludicrous. And it’s not as though the main room is open from that time, not at all, as it’s just the terrace till 3, then the chapel space till 5 or 6 when the sardine like squash forces the promotions team to react and open the main room, this the reality of what clubbers come up against and feel about this format. That said, on the special occasions, like for example a Beyond vs. Matinee party, this “Midnight” format makes inherent sense, but on a dark, dank & cold January Saturday, no, not at all!!, we having made our views perfectly clear to the promotions team on more than one occasions.
So, are we relieved, pleased & ecstatic that Ben Kaye & his crews have woken up and smelt the roses, as Beyond from this week kicks off at a much more reasonable 4 a.m. start, this sure to make all the difference to the D.J.’s, the atmosphere and the whole feel of the club, returning that hedonistic feel that starting your clubbing in the wee early hours brings. And Sunday (26th Jan) also marks the return of Beyond’s all-star resident, a man who has been there since the start and continues to have the pulling power & prolific performance credentials that he had back then, yes of course, its Steve Pitron, an extended 2 ½ hour set from 7 a.m. sure to pack that Area main room to the rafters. As for the rest, well Fat Tony follows Steve until close at midday, while the chapel sports the dynamic duo of David Jimenez & D’Johnny, girl power the name of the game in the terrace, with Ania (still not sure about her music) & the back-to-back Maze & Masters. And as Ben tells us, “…come and see what all the fuss is about as London’s best weekly party takes centre stage. ON memberships are still valid on this the last weekend of January and the Guest List will be open but only for a few hours; so make sure if you are on it…” while advance tickets are on sale online at http://orangenation.co.uk and at Soho outlets Prowler, Clone Zone & Fifty Dean, as well as at both Ku-Bars and at Rupert St which, every Saturday, hosts the Beyond pre-party from 9 p.m. till midnight, more details up at https://facebook.com/events/199497296862075/.
Now how are we doing so far with that answer? Well, Vauxhall gets two, who’s going to get the third, well we stay with London this week as it’s all about Europe for us next, our third Best Bite choice seeing us head out east to the place on City Road that has been a major contributor in transforming the Shoreditch scene into one of the hottest & hip happening hangouts in London. And the same could be said for East Bloc, the brainchild & inspiration of Wayne Shires, the man behind the truly legendary underground club Crash, which itself transformed Vauxhall into the clubbing mecca it quickly became. So it seems this transformation trend runs through Wayne’s veins, as he is virtually replicated what Crash achieved with East Bloc, the club sporting some of the most amazing & alternative clubbing brands on the scene, DISH, Guttersult, TheMenWhoFell2Earth, Songs Of Praise, Super Electro Party Machine &, of course, WAR, while the depth of D.J. talent speaks for itself, Tom Stephan, Borja Pena, Kris Di Angelis, Per Q.X. & Jim Warboy, just five among a fantastic flock, Wayne also keen to push & promote new talent that truly sets East Bloc and its events apart from the same old same old merry-go-round resident regurgitation that all too often plagues Mr Shires’ former playing ground. And having witnessed East Bloc just a couple of weeks ago, we saw the fruits of his labour paying dividends big time, the underground feel of the place emulating Crash, albeit on a smaller scale, while the crowd is delightfully different and gives the place that true club feel that takes us back to the days of our youth.
So that’s the venue, what about our event pick? Well East Bloc pulls in another party to add to its already illustrious list, as the Get With Me! Crew take over this Saturday (26th Jan) with big plans to transform this compact & cavernous club “…into your next holiday destination…” which, in itself, is intriguing enough to draw us right in. But this outing is truly alternative as not only does it combine the musical genres of what the team call, “Dancehall”, “Kpop” & “Reggeaton”, with some good old R&B throw in too, but the cast of D.J.’s are names unfamiliar to us in their entirety, so yet another intriguing draw. But maybe you will recognise the names of Matthew Stone, Theo Adams & Richard Mortimer, while the likes of Chris & Mathew, Anarchic Female, Jonbenet Blonde, Gabriel Gabriel and Sharna & Hermes will, in combination with all the others, spread the super Get With Me! Sound across East Bloc’s three spaces. So it seems that this alternative antic is definitely one to watch and actually indulge in, East Bloc’s doors opening for Get With Me! this Saturday (26th Jan) from 10 p.m., the club running through to a planned 6 a.m. finish, entry on the door a mere £5 before midnight and then £8 after, while with happy hour drinks between 10 & 11 and the fact that this will be yet another event that will pack out Wayne’s place, early arrival is advisable, details on the venue up at http://eastbloc.co.uk and more on the event itself out at https://www.facebook.com/events/472070932828639/
Now, with our plans to re-separate our Short Shouts back out into their own fully fledged newsletter in the next couple of weeks, we have time & space for just a small handful here, a real pick of the bunch, the first going to Delice, who land on London tomorrow night (Fri 25th Jan) at The Shadow Lounge in Soho, for another pre-party for their “Dream” dance festival, more info up at https://facebook.com/events/103722013131480/, this looking to be the hottest Soho ticket in town this weekend.
So, skirting Vauxhall completely, its back to Shoreditch & East Bloc we go, as Friday night frolic, Super Electro Party Machine, grabs our attention, not least that promoter Larry Tee welcomes back Jodie Harsh to proceedings, she joined with superb Room Service sidekick Munroe Bergdorf, while there is a Vauxhall influence as Maze & Masters creep across to spin some sounds too, the free vodka bar another reason why you should head out to City Rd, a summary of this soiree up at https://facebook.com/events/134989263329260/.
Okay, so we head onto the continent now for our two final Short Shouts, flying across to Rome first for Muccassassina, we having pretty much fallen in love with the brand since its showing at the huge LGDF gathering three years ago, while when we visted the club itself, we were blown away. And since that marvellous May with Danny Verde & Micky Galliano, Mucca has benefitted from our weekly support, Friday’s (25th Jan) event, “Porca” right up there, their event page at https://facebook.com/events/276699969122473/ telling the superb story much better than us.
Then, another love affair that we made as recently as three weekends ago was with Scream, the Parisian party that has been cutting a significant stride since 1996 and never fails to hit the mark with its weekly meets, Ludo & his terrific team joining forces with the superb Spyce to bring a specialist celebratory “Circus” event this Saturday (26th Jan), a full-on French feel from a D.J. team that includes Messrs Boumati, Nucci & Triumph, more detail available at http://scream-paris.com &/or https://facebook.com/groups/53427623634/.
Now to those news nibbles of February frolics that are worthy dates into your disco dance dairies, next Saturday (2nd Feb) serving up a splendid selection, Puscha’s “Undercover” party at Brixton Electric heading a London field that includes Matinee “Pervert at Fire & new night “Baked” at Green Carnation in Soho, while for us, it’s all about Propaganda at Red & Blue in Antwerp, this our second European trip of the year. Back in London and to the following day (Sun 3rd Feb) and a slice of Soho moves south, “Society” launching at Area in Vauxhall from 6 p.m., an event an news item that will be covered in an upcoming “Extra Bites” post, as will be Deelooded’s news of its second space line-up, this prolific party also on the move the following Sunday (10th Feb) to a new Shoreditch spot and is already looking like THE place t be & be seen that weekend. Internationally again, and WE Madrid will be in carnival mood the day before (Sat 9th Feb) at La Riviera, Phil Romano joining resident Manuel de Diego, while we zoom back to London for our final piece of clubbing news and a new club launching in Mayfair on Tuesday 5th February with Micky Galliano & Zach Burns, more info on this to come too.
So, that is it for another weekend, these our choices of where to be & be seen on the scene, while a veritable feast of London frolics can be found by heading to the listings in both http://boyz.co.uk & http://qxmagazine.com making for a world is your oyster array of outings, while our “Top Of The Tree Three” along with our short shouts given you plenty to party with. As for us?, well a nasty knew injury looks like confining us to the comfort of our sofa, but with lots of heavenly happenings to hone in on, we trust that this weekend will see you “Go There! Be There!” (DISCO MATT)
With a rapidly expanding portfolio of presences & productions, on the back of naming his latest compilation our podcast of the week and just ahead of this burgeoning beatmaster’s birthday, we couldn’t think of a better bloke to devote our first D.J. focus of 2013 to than the amazing & terrific Adam Turner, we dealing a detailed devotion on this marvellous man & his music.
If you have followed our reviews, our recommends and all our other posts & features, whether religiously or not, you will be pretty familiar with the fact that we have been treading the capitals clubbing boards for many a moon (some would say too many), while our informative dancefloor years stretch back to our surrogate South Africa, meaning that we have been there & done that, the real passion within all the clubbing expeditions we have amassed, being the music & the music makers. So it is also true to say that, given our experiences, we are pretty qualified to speak for and spot out terrific talent when we see it and while recently we have dropped our favourite guard, we hang our hat on certain incredible individuals for good reason, not because they have become great friends of ours, but because, most importantly, they are exemplary exponents of their art, some right at the top of the game both here in London & internationally. Yet, while an ever increasing list of D.J.’s & producers that we promote are firmly established within their field, there are a handful that are emerging & relatively fresh faced in what is a highly competitive clubbing circuit, meaning making their mark these days is even tougher than it was when we were young & fresh faced. But there is one such individual that is making his musical mark magnificently, so much so that he has made it into our own coveted category of “protégé players”, the brilliant of this burgeoning beatmaster richly deserving this position as well our focused attention here.
Adam Turner is a talent with whom we only became introduced to formerly under a year ago, yet having seen his name appear on club flyers, in the popular press and on the pages of social networking sites for a while longer, we quickly connected with this chap & his compositions. Indeed, not long after that intro , Adam made a magnificent mark on our musical minds with his “House Of Summer 2012” mix, one which for a while toppled our premier player from his playlist pedestal, a captivating & compelling compilation that would see it split Steve Pitron’s podcasts in our Y.E. top five chart. Yet, the Adam Turner production story goes much deeper than just this podcast, his roots firmly founded in track compsotions, this love of mixing, re-mixing & producing stretching back into his teenage years, his first set of decks purchase at just 13 setting him on a career path both in clubs & the recording studio that was cemented following his graduation from The Guildhall school in London in 2011, sporting a music degree to his name and in just over a year, this emerging talent has made significant strides on the scene, quickly assembling an impressive list of both residencies & guest spots across the capitals clubbing circuit. From Circa in Soho, Popcorn at Heaven, both considerable & constant cornerstones, Adam also boasts roving residencies at A:M/Onyx & Sunday’s at The RVT in Vauxhall, The Kensington Roof Gardens and, most recently for The Shadow Lounge in Soho & Bridge Bar in Clapham, all meaning that Adam is becoming busier with every brimming beat, he now also part of the Room Service residency team on top of tripping to Glasgow regularly to star in the city’s & one of Scotland’s most famous clubs, the Polo Lounge.
So, given that repertoire of residencies & gigs, Adam richly deserves both the burgeoning beatmaster brilliance tag & that coveted protégé player position of ours, while in the relatively short time we have been tracking this tremendous talent, we have become so proud of what Mr Turner has achieved. But the Adam success story doesn’t stop there, as he also hosts a weekly radio show every Friday night on Westside FM, a two hour show split into track devotions during the first half, while he goes into the mix for the second hour, a perfect platform to propel both his own productions & those he plays in his live sets, while his passion for promoting other producers is also evident in the show. Yet, the circle of Adam achievements always leads back to his studio recordings, he having ht the high notes back in the summer of last year with his “Amazing” release, one that features his very own vocals (yes the man can sing too!) and was a collaboration with the dynamic production duo, Mars & Vans, Mr Turner continuing to work closely with them, while also mixing his own mash-up’s & remixes, incredible interpretations of “Don’t Wake Me Up” & “Let Me Love You” added to his superb sample of tracks “Titanium” & “It’s Not Right Buts It’s Ok”. Indeed his latest track project on the latter, which he has called his “State 53 Mix” is hot off the production press (literally a day ago), one that hit our musical mark immediately and is sure to feature in forthcoming live set showings, this & all his track productions out on his Soundcloud site at https://soundcloud.com/adamturnermusic/. However, we still have a penchant for his podcast productions, no less than nine produced in the last year or so, although with a gap between his “Summer Sessions 2012” and his latest, interestingly called “Not Another Fu@king House Session”, we can’t get enough of an Adam Turner compilation, this latest his first in over five months, so the words “not another” perhaps slightly inappropriate, while the podcast itself proves just how he is grown in both stature & musical maturity, so one destined for DM 2013 chart greatness and an essential addition to your collection by going to http://adamturnermusic.podomatic.com/.
So that’s the past & the present in the wonderful musical world of Adam Turner, but what of the future?, well if he continues to rise & rise in the next twelve months as he has in the last, the world will surely become his oyster, we predicting an international emergence along with more capital clubbing circuit residencies. And as this marvellous man prepares to celebrate his birthday, we couldn’t think of a more perfect present than propelling him to our “prime protégé player” position, with even dizzier accolade heights to come for sure.

With Soho sustaining a significant shock this week, the sudden closure of Profile & Lo-Profile leaving any simply stunned, the effects have been far reaching, even hitting our recommendations schedule. So, as we pick up the pieces of our “Best Bites” format, we forge ahead with our Short Shouts of where to be & be seen on the scene in Soho, Vauxhall & Shoreditch this weekend.
Well, what a shocking surprise of a week it has been, starting with the stunning & out of the blue announcement of the immediate closure of Profile & Lo-Profile, the blame laid with tenancy agreement issues, while we all know it was down to that word beginning with M and what we all seem to need to survive. So, having played a prominent part in our weekly Best Bites newsletters, where we chose our top of the tree picks, one from Soho, Vauxhall & Shoreditch, these Wardour St wonders, apart from leaving a gaping hole on the scene, has resorted us to a Best Bites re-think. But while we re-configure that part of our weekend newsletters, our Short Shouts continue unabated and with plenty going, despite the sad Soho news, there is much to cheer the cockles of clubbers across the expected chilly weekend weather.
So let’s crack on and yes to Soho first, The Shadow Lounge very much in pole position once more, although sticking to its Friday “Therapy” formula but with a range of new roving residents, Adam Turner making a superb sound splash from midnight, while Saturday’s have become known for nothing else but “Inferno” and Andrew Elmore, details of these & other nights such as “Balearic”, out at http://theshadowlounge.co.uk
Onwards to Circa and that marvellous music man Adam Turner pitches up again, tonight (Thurs 10th Jan) seeing him warm you up for Room Service alongside Munroe Bergdorf, who returns on Friday night with her own style soiree, “Discipline”, very much keeping you in line, while its Adam again on Saturday (we can’t get enough of him), a little birdie telling us the 4 a.m. licence is still in place, more info up at http://circasoho.com & via Facebook at http://facebook.com/pages/Circa/183683868348892
Moving just round the square, that Soho Sq, and The Edge certainly packs a powerful punch on both Friday & Saturday, tomorrow night (11th Jan) welcoming Brazilian boy beatmaster Doug Silva to the decks, while our premier protégé player has a heavenly handle on Saturday’s with his “I Love Saturday House Sessions”, mixing the best current chart house remixes with uplifted funky & vocal house jams, hostess Felicia Van Cartier & her gorge go-go’s added into the mix, more details up at http://edgesoho.co.uk/ & on Facebook at http://facebook.com/groups/edgebarsoho/.
To Ku Bar and tomorrow sees DMS & Alvaro spin the sounds at “Klub”, the Friday frolic that combines popular picks, floor fillers & vocal house, while their new night on Saturday (12th Jan), “La Mix”, an Ibiza themed party takes over both the bar & the club, D.J.’s Doug Silva & Athanas Sak spinning the sounds, the bar & the club showing off some of the best looking serving studs in town who go bare topped each night, including Sunday which sees Lady Lloyd go all pop (that’s the music style), further info out at http://ku-bar.co.uk & http://facebook.com/kubarlondon.
To Rupert Street now and while this long running & popular watering hole has gone through the mill recently, a tumbling in both popularity and business seeing the new manager, Karl Nixon, scratch his head a little, Orange Nation have come to its rescue with a planned programme of pre-parties, Saturday (12th Jan) seeing Beyond take centre stage, Jamie Head on deck duty, so one not to be missed, http://facebook.com/events/393534407404054/ telling you more.
And finally, we couldn’t let the moment pass without a mention for the Profile & Lo-Profile farewell drinks event, which takes place at the Yard from 7 p.m. this Saturday (12th Jan), the upstairs space set aside for this glorious send off gathering and is expected to be a packed out affair, especially as many will have been caught out by the sudden closure. So, if you want to say your au-revoir’s but surely not goodbyes to the team, then this is the place to do it, more info up at http://facebook.com/events/244194319045789/246340292164525/.
To Vauxhall now and Orange Nation are in the driving seat, their “Free January Clubbing” encompassing parties from Gravity to Orange & everything in between, while, if we are brutally honest (and a tad controversial), we cannot quite believe that Beyond goes all “Midnight” on us again this weekend, the club having used this format for three of the last four weeks & looks like doing so for the rest of the month. But apparently it was packed with punters last Saturday night into Sunday morning & will surely be again, details of D.J.’s on duty, etc, etc, up at http://www.facebook.com/events/116714235167756/
But the big news on the Orange Nation front is that Fat Tony has taken over promoting Orange, adding this amazing afterhours institution of a Monday morning meet to Gravity & Deelooded, both shinning under his steership, Orange in need of a fresh citric squeeze, Tony the man to do it, not least as he was at the centre of the clubs launch some fourteen years ago, so is sure to bring the good times & the fun back, while also introducing new guest D.J.’s to the main room, this one to watch, Sunday’s event info up at http://otangenation.co.uk & via the events page at http://facebook.com/events/516510358381533/
Just before we leave Orange Nation, it’s worth re-mentioning that “Free January Clubbing” offer which covers clubs Gravity, A:M, Beyond, Later & Orange, we having attempted to confound the theory that nothing in life is for free in our special focus feature “Some Things In Life Are For Free”, we having dug deep into the promotional PR, digesting the detail & producing our own view on what is, on face value, a fabulous free filler for your jaded post festive January, so well worth a look at http://discomatt.com/web/?p=6614 as well as checking out http://oramgenation.co.uk/membership
To the Eagle now who’s winning weekend is three faceted, “Tonker” doing its beefy & brawny bloke thing on Friday (11th Jan), promoter Tim Jones joined on the decks by another Jones, Ross making music for the men, while on the following night sees “Eagle Saturday’s” take centre stage, a genre blend of 70’s/80’s/90’s hits combined with more modern funky, electro & tech tainted house, Prince Nelly providing the former, while Severino sorts the latter. And with the mere words “Horse Meat Disco” speaking enough Sunday volumes, head to http://eaglelondon.com & http://www.facebook.com/Eagle.London for more.
And we couldn’t let Vauxhall pass go without a mention for venerable institution, The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, which hit the headlines recently when welcoming back Paul O’Grady to what was his hallowed turf as Lilly Savage, while its fringe events continue to reign supreme in the week & this Friday as it goes, as “Wotever World” is what it’s about, Saturday, Amy Lame & The Readers Wives meaning only one thing, “Duckie”, while Sunday is synonymous with “S.L.A.G.S./Chill-out”, more info up at http://thervt.org.uk or via the venue’s Facebook group, http://facebook.com/groups/thervt/.
To Shoreditch now and to East Bloc which has two terrific turns this weekend, the first mention having to go to DISH, which celebrates its first birthday on Saturday (12th Jan) and has been subject to our own Weekend Focus feature, “Tasty Turn Turns One”, which tells all about the club & about Saturday’s shindig at http://discomatt.com/web/?p=6624, while we are sure it will scoop our Saturday “Pick Of The Day” too, so very much the place to be & be seen, more info out at http://facebook.com/DISHLONDON.
As for that second soiree, well its Friday and “Super Electro Party Machine”, Larry Tee’s off the wall wonder that sees a superb selection of stars spin the sounds, this week seeing Mr Tee welcome Guy Williams & his Paradise 45 crew, the “Electro” being substituted for “Paradise” on the event info, while the hot off the press news is that Princess Julia will be making her majestic musical mark too, she another product from the Wayne Shires Crash camp that have moved out east, details up at http://facebook.com/events/520317934655157/.
Up the road we now go to The Dalston Superstore in fact, which has a full weekend of wonders, we running through them in reverse, Sunday being “Tutti Frutti” day, while on Saturday its gender bender time with the return of Shoreditch son Kris Di Angelis’s club, “Tramp”, this time going hot, Munroe Bergdorf joined by Jonny Woo upstairs, while Kris serves up a four hour set downstairs (check http://facebook.com/events/427982320607845/ for more info). And with Friday asking to just “Say Yes”, The DSS has all this & much more to offer, info out at http://facebook.com/groups/dalstonsuperstore/.
For our final Short Shout, we head back into Shoreditch proper and to the Joiners Arms which has certainly seen a resurgence in popularity recently, due in no part to the fact that they sport some of the bigger D.J. names from the capitals clubbing circuit, This Saturday (12th Jan) seeing newish night “Pantastic” welcome Ariel to the decks, while it has been Sunday soiree “SPQR” (standing for Sexy Parties Queer Revels) that has really put The Joiners back on the circuit map, we having to head down soon, while you can head to http://joinersshoreditch.com for more detail on these, Friday’s “Yes” and the other four days delights too.
Well that’s it for our singular recommends newsletter, we hoping to be back with our revised Best Bites part next week, on top of more Short Shout includees such as Clapham’s Bridge Bar & Soho’s Room Service, although with over twenty events & parties covered here there is much to mull over & lay your hat on this weekend.

Tom Peters, more info out at http://facebook.com/events/431805860188409/.
Final in our foray East threesome goes to The Joiners Arms which has found a real niche for itself on a Sunday, not only drawing in the Hoxton locals, but with D.J.’s like Paul Heron, Alessandro Londra & Kris Di Angelis having graced the SPRQ (that’s the club night name) decks, this Sunday night shindig is drawing in a much wider audience & is very much becoming the place to be & be seen, particularly if you are after some old that old time decadence & debauchery that was so common place on the scene in times gone by. And amidst the spit & sawdust style of The Joiners (we are told it has had a lick of paint recently though) this Sunday (7th Oct) the extrovert Julian De Apostate spins the sounds, locale details & more available at http://facebook.com/joiners.arms.9.

Be There! (DISCO MATT)
Hailing the fact that the boys are back, we decide to land our “Pick Of The Day” choice at the door of Gigolo “Loaded” which takes place tonight (Wed 1st Aug) at The Shadow Lounge in Soho, promoters David & L.a.

With this exceptional mid-week meet seemingly going from strength to strength, Disco Matt sticks to what is fast becoming a Wednesday tradition, as he points his “Pick of The Day” finger in the direction of Gigolo, its “Service” further info a “Pick Of The Day” banner click away opposite or an image click below, while DM delves a little deeper with his dinky delectation beneath
With Wednesday’s still firmly in the “school night” category for us, it is very rare to find us stepping out on the scene these days, while given the inside information we are getting on Gigolo, there are plenty party heads that shun school in favour of generous scoops of soiree socialising & a little sauce on the side, which this mid-week meet has in abundance. And in the hands of promoters David & L.a. Hart, Gigolo’s success is pretty much assured, the heady cocktail of magnificent music, heavenly hunks & sumptuous surrounds, make it a wonderfully winning formula & one host venue The Shadow Lounge & its team are proud to be a part of. But with so much more to this tremendous night on the town, it is little wonder that it continues to find itself on our “Pick Of The Day” pedestal, this week being no exception, we delving into & then dicing up the detail of this “Service” event
So, Gigolo “Service” is sizing up this week in celebration of host venue Shadow Lounge’s 11th birthday, by jetting in favourite porn star Marco Sessions, along with Lucas Entertainment’s Edji Da Silva as well as special porn star guest, Samuel Colt, all three not only performing on stage, but entertaining you lucky ones that get into the live X rated photo-shoot or into a private booth with these muscle-bound beefcakes. But it’s not all about the porn stars, as the music plays a big part too, this week seeing new & rising D.J. talent, Aamyko, who takes up the first slot, no doubt delivering plenty of “…high energy slut jams…”, while experienced international D.J./Producer, Oliver M follows with his own blend of sexy beats & euro style track treats. And if all that wasn’t enough, then you can tuck into a special Gigolo cocktail (we have tried them & they are yummy) for just a fiver & that gets you entry into the XXX photo-shoot we deluded to earlier, while its always worth either “…stripping right down or dressing right up…” as this could mean you become one of the “Hot 20”, a special package served up by Gigolo, where you , along with your pals can get into the club for free and, what’s more, the winner out of the 20, gets “…down and dirrrty…” with the Gigolo porno-stars in their own private booth with VIP entry & drinks!
So, suffice to say, for a marvellous mid-week treat, we cannot think or recommend a better place to be than at Gigolo, “Service” taking place tonight (Wed 11th July) at the Shadow Lounge in Soho, doors opening at 10 p.m. & the club running through until 3 a.m., entry just £8 on the door, while for concessions & “I Am Soho” card holders, it’s a mere £5. With more info available at http://gigolodisco.com, http://theshadowlounge.co.uk &/or http://facebook.com/GIGOLODISCO, along with an insight into Gigolo’s imagery & photography available at http://shootmeup.co.uk & http://gigolodisco.tumblr.com, don’t forget that 1 a.m. XXX photo-shoot, leaving us to simply say, “Go There! Be There! (DISCO MATT)
