Reptile – January 2015

This was an event that was supposed to happen in December 2014, but unfortunately a police cordon around the venue on the night resulted in a last-minute cancellation. All concerned returned to Nightclub Kolis on Saturday night, and this time everything went to plan. The centrepiece of tonight’s event was Jayce Lewis’ band Protafield making the trip from South Wales to London to provide a particularly memorable live event. My first set of the night was immediately before their show, the second later in the night.

Set 1 -Pre-Protafield

KMFDM – More and Faster 12″

Reptile New Year’s Eve 2013

For the second consecutive year, I finished my DJ year at Reptile. Whilst I was originally scheduled to do three sets, power supply issue caused the night to end an hour early and hence only two sets were completed (the final set was going to be a run of 80s synthpop classics, if you were wondering). The two sets I ended up playing went like this – as it was New Years Eve, nothing less that undisputed classics made it in.

The final Neo-Noir event occured at the London Stone. With two of the regular DJs absent, it was down to myself, Wozza and Paladin to provide the music. Despite early technical issues, we ended up seeing the club out in some kind of haphazard style.

Here’s what I played – as it was the last night, I took the chance to play a few ‘unexpected’ songs that wouldn’t normally feature at the event. It was a real ‘what the hell, let’s have some fun’ kind of event – after a run of genre-specific events, it was a great chance to let rip and see what worked.
