From 7:00 pm to 4:00 am.
Discovery raise the game for the Bank holiday with 2 international disco guests flying in to the Shoreditch Disco pub, burger bear doing the disco burgers, drinking, dancing and a 4am finish.
Dj Kaos (Jollyjams/ DFA Berlin) jets in from Berlin to join the Discover residents Neil Thornton and Jac the Disco downstairs while upstairs Ambassadors Reception has a special loft party with special guest Loud E (Rotterdam) and birthday boy Stevie Kotey, expect disco old and new, house, rediscovered party unclassics and not forgetting Burger Bear doing the disco burgers.
DJ Kaos’s singles are tightly constructed affairs, songs that patiently unfurl over seven-minute runtimes. He’s certainly restless stylistically, applying a disco sensibility across multiple strands of dance music but once he settles upon a sound, he inhabits it, effortlessly gliding through peaks and troughs as if it were the only kind of track he knew how to make. To wit: recent years have found him producing smouldering house (“Keep on Movin'”) and psych-kissed disco (“Kosmischer Ruckenwind”), while two outstanding singles for DFA Records 2009’s slinky “Love the Night Away”and last year’s silky smooth, krautrock-indebted “From Inside” convincingly pulled off more analog, song-oriented approaches.
The ambassadors like to throw a little soiree every now and then, so with spring in the air we’ve decided to warm up for a busy year with an Ambassadors Reception London special in the rather cosy loft of The Horse and Groom. We are bringing Ambassador Loud-E back to London with his hot and exotic disco sound. It was no surprise when he was recently named on Resident Advisor My favourite DJ feature as DJ I.f favourite dj. The Dutch maestro has the unique ability to blend a truly tropical mix of flavours from around the world to create a special style which is completely his own. Ably assisted by the exquisite Stevie Kotey we know it’s going to be a night of musical excellence.
