Three of London’s finest join forces for a family get together.
As New Years Eve goes, parties can be bloated, overpriced and generally shit affairs. Luckily for London folk, this year sees three of London’s finest underground promoters/labels come together to offer the antithesis to the impersonal, money-spinning let down that New Years Eve celebrations all too often become.
Stoke Newington’s Bar-A-Bar will host the NYE Shubs, with the intimate venue allowing for some of the capital’s best residents to tote their wares.
If you’ve been to a Standard Place party, you’ll know the score, but having had their most successful year to date, the collective of Oneman, Jon Rust, Reecha and MC Asbo bring vibe-heavy gatherings that display a knack for the finest in house and bass, not to mention just how to get down, pretension free.
Alexander Nut and Floating Points’ Eglo label continues to go from strength-to-strength, with (another) future anthem on their hands in the form of Krystal Klear and Olivier Day Soul’s ‘Never Thought You Would Go’ set for release in early 2012, the Eglo ethos is groove-laden soul and up front party jams like your mumma used to make.
Meanwhile Nonsense, the crew of crate diggers who’ve held a regular spot at London’s Plastic People for time, bring all three residents to the party, as Judah, Mr. Wonderful and Benny Blanco hold court with a mixture of hip-hop, soul, house and anything else they please – “Nothing but good vibes, good people and great music.”.
