Winter has passed and we all now start to think forward to the summer, however before all the serious work of getting back into shape takes place. Early March will witness the start of a new concept from Liz Mendez and team keeping you dancing for a little longer at the Kubicle House Party!
Keep it simple including nice people, some music, a new space, some wine and I think we might almost be there. Maybe add in a few sneaky small surprises on the way and a slight pinch of fun, frolics and fearless high grade tasteful debauchery should keep the spice and flavour consistent, welcome a different type of house party and new addition to the residents roster Richy Ahmed of Hot Creation fame, check his Kubicle House Party mix and biography below. We caught up with Liz Mendez to check the 411 and finer details of the house party.

RICHY AHMED BIOGRAPHY
Over the last year British house music has been through a renaissance with a whole new generation of DJs and producers like Robert James, Subb-an, Russ Yallop and Maya Jane Coles quickly making names for themselves. In the midst of this surge of homegrown talent is Richy Ahmed, Hot Natured resident and part of the Hot Creations inner circle. Richy has spent the last two summers cutting his teeth at some world’s best parties including, Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival, Sonar in Barcelona, The Nexus at Burning Man in the middle of the Nevada desert, Glastonbury Festival’s 40th Anniversary, Kubicle’s legendary toilet parties in London and We Love at Space in Ibiza. Playing alongside some of house music’s biggest stars, Richy is regularly tipped as one to watch by the likes of Jamie Jones, Damian Lazarus, Clive Henry and Seth Troxler. Hailing from Newcastle in the north of the UK, he still makes regular appearances at events across the UK such as Below in Birmingham, MuMu in Liverpool, The Breakfast Club in Bristol and London’s notorious Sunday afterhours institution Kubicle.
The launch of Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’ Hot Creations label last year turned underground house music on its head, rapidly becoming one of the most popular new labels in dance music. As resident at their hugely successful Hot Natured parties held in London, Detroit, Barcelona, New York, LA and Miami, Richy has been at the centre of this nu-school house explosion and is set to release his own productions on the label starting February 2011. Armed with uniquely individual sound that fuses the energy of house and disco with infectious funk-inspired grooves and a touch of sullen mystery, his style has a distinct edge that’s impossible to pinpoint.
