Fancy something a little more classy whilst keeping the sound underground this New Year? Tristan da Cunha, Dungeon Meat’s head honcho joins Circoloco’s, Clive Henry, alongside A Party With Us, Blind Vision Records and more. Boogie down on the 5* South Place Hotel’s extravaganza, with a state of the art sound system and some of this years most talked about festival headliners.

Next on the bill is the Rinse FM versatile mixer Grainger. Dixon Avenue Basement Jams will be headlining. The Glasgow label has established itself as one of the most exciting collectives to emerge out of the current electro, house and techno scene in the U.K. They have worked alongside Marquis HawkesDennis SultaJared Wilson and many more…

Secret Social residents Uncut Funk DJ’s will be closing. The crate-digging duo are one to watch for 2019. 

Meeting Point, a North London collective, will be hosting the funky Barbershop room with Appetite and Quest 808 residents, as well as Sonic who will be joining them to provide the sounds of this cheeky additional room at The Cause.
