Slimelight – Goth and 80s Floor

I’ve DJed at the Elektrowerkz venue many times in the past, mainly as support DJ for the various bands playing there, and I have on a few occasions stuck around to fill a vacant slot at the Slimelight club following on after. This was my first stand-alone set at Slimelight, joining DJs Jester and Jo The Waiter on the ‘Goth/80s’ floor (though the music policy in practice is somewhat broader that that).

This evening also doubled up as one of the afterparties for the Pride In London event, with members of The Queer Alternative very much in presence. It was also a few days after the referendum on the UK’s membership of the European Union. Whilst I avoid discussion of topical issues here, it’s fair and factually true to say that both the EU and the LGBT+ community have both played a vital part of making my DJ career what it is. Someone even wrote on the request list “They’ll Never Take Our Scene Away”. That summed up the mood of the night.
