Winter is slowly fading in and the Halloween weekend is most certainly a big one and K / D – Keep it Deep chooses 5 parties that you should seriously check out for different musical reasons over the weekend including Butter Side Up, Colors, Art of Dark, Secretsundaze & Kaleidoscope, check the links for full information and ticket links.
First stop is Butter Side Up which is a long standing leeds Deep House party run by a solid crew of resident with a super tight booking policy, this is as super friendly party with pure vibes and great atmosphere. They have two guests detailed below and we have picked this Jane Fitz NTS mix to give you some flavour of what you can expect.
Eric Cloutier is the first up guest, a real underground hero in the form of Detroit native and Berlin resident. This guy is a master craftsman both in his sleek techno & house production and his beautifully hypnotic DJ sets, as well as lending his extremely well trained ear to labels such as New York’s Bunker and the Berlin/Bristol based TANSTAAFL it is safe to say that this chap knows his onions!
Next up we welcome not only one of our favourite ever selectors, but an absolute cult hero the world over…Jane Fitz. DJ, promoter, music journo, Jane has just about seen it all when it comes to electronic music as she has effortlessly glided through the last 15 years of electronic music sticking to her guns and keeping things underground without ever relenting to any sort of pretentiousness…and she does it oh so well.
Next stop is Colors
a party that has been going just over a year but has enjoyed a huge amount of success which included taking over room 3 at Fabric a few weeks back. This party brings any space to live with stand out dressing and show production of the space, this day of the dead party will be one of the best London has to offer. The music for this journey comes 3 solid gold djs and if you have been before you know the musical score. Check this mix from Thomas Roland who plays Colors often.
So that is Friday over with on Saturday we firmly recommend that your 1st stop should be Art of Dark
who have Praslesh which consists of Raresh back to back with Praslea. These Romanians bring that rolling micro minimal house to the floor which suits the Halloween vibe. Check this mix to catch the vibe.
The next stop Saturday night comes courtesy of Secretsundaze
with a deep line up which includes Dj Rolando, FunkinEven. Romare live and of course resident party starters Giles and James. These boys have been long in the game and they always bring a tight production to the venue with on point musical selection. Check the mix from FunkinEven for the score.
Last stop for the weekend and the 5th recommendation is Kaleidoscope, at 93 Feet East, with a stellar line up of underground heads and crate diggers. Jane Fitz features again this weekend, Andrew James Gustav of Hi-Fi fame, Matteo Manzini from sunday rave Damaged, Chris Graham & Ewan Smith, Rupes & Dan Beaven. Check this mix from Andrew James Gustav to catch the energy pushed on the floor. This one will be a more intimate affair with subtle musical stories and an understated crowd. Happy halloween and pleas take care of yourself, other and be responsible, keep it deep, always!
