The fourth party, hot on the heels of a Domu guest set and special appearance from Patrick Forge, sees the SB crew taking over at Home once more.

This week we have another fine selection of guest selectors on disco duty:

Rik Moran (TOTHEBONE)

Rik makes up 33.3% of TOTHEBONE, the favourite podcast of 23.2% of
Harlesden housewives and the night out of choice for 26.83% of Dalston
taxi drivers.

Playing 45.74% Disco, 42.9% House and 18.24% music of unknown genre at
approximately plus or minus 3.2%, statistics say you’ll spend 74.98%
of your time of on the dancefloor, 12.32% at the bar and 99.67% having

Isa (All Ends Up)

Isa has played at some of the best warehouse parties this side of the Atlantic with the east London All Ends Up night and has an amazing talent for tune selection, taking in disco, Detroit, Chicago , house and much much more.
Having played across London, warmed up for Moodymann at Cargo and also held down a room for Secret Sundaze she can get people dancing who don’t even like dancing!

Chris CTOP (brownswood.co.uk)

Chris is a bit of a local hero with a eye-watering record collection. His tastes span from obscure disco rareties to leather-clad funk rumpshakers to house tracks of the highest quality. Sprinkle a bit of hip hop, jazz and dubstep and you’ve basically got a party. Chris is ‘the DJ’s favourite DJ’, and his sets at venues such as Gramaphone and Herbal have marked him out as a bit of a up-and-coming star. Definitely one to watch!

The Spacebass djs have rocked it at some of the best parties & venues around – Secretsundaze, Cargo, Plastic People, Worldwide Underground and The Garden Festival in Croatia. We will bring the party to the Home Bar, so come with an open mind and dancing feet!

Dont forget… 2-4-1 on selected beers and cocktails at £4 each between 7-9 !!!





SpaceBass at Big Chill Bar – What a party!

30 03 2009

A few words about Sunday’s party

Beccy & I followed Michael Cook (of djhistory fame) who was playing some superb slooomoooo disco to a building, sunday afternoon crowd. Loads of sunday shoppers, ravers from the night before and unabomber fans

Beccy and I did 30mins on, 30mins off until about 9pm when Luke came on. Again, absolute RESPECT for defying a sinus infection, coming down to London and playing for us – completely honoured as he could have just sacked it off (and I wouldnt have blamed him).
Luke pretty much straight into the house selection, a combination of european stuff, into slower, chunkier US bits then a bit of disco and boogie toward the end.

As usual, the big chill bar offers up the usual assortment of crazies, exhibitionists and people who can’t let go of the weekend

Big love to everyone who comes down to our parties and supports – hopefully you do it because you enjoy the music / vibe.

Great singer, loving this at the moment:

Produced by Narada Michael Walden.

Those metallic sound effects (can’t think of a better way to describe them at the moment) in the background are genius.

Nice bit of background on her here too:
