It’s been fifteen whole years since we first opened our doors back in 2001, when clubs were shady dens of silk, sweat and Hooch and carpeted dancefloors were all too common...
How time changes things. Well, some things. For fifteen years, we’ve been hosting the best oldskool House and Garage nights that London has ever seen. DJ EZ, Spoony, MJ Cole, Todd Edwards, Matt Jam Lamont, Norris Da Boss Windross and countless others have graced our stage, making it one of the longest running oldskool nights in clubbing history. We've also had live PAs from the likes of India, Barbara Tucker, Carol Sylvan, Elisabeth Troy and Robbie Craig. As part of our 15th Birthday celebrations, we’ve put together the top 15 tracks that show what we’re all about.
