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.

KMFDM – More and Faster 12″

Set 2- Post-Protafield

Laibach – God Is God
Die Krupps – Robo Sapien
Combichrist – Get Your Body Beat
Front 242 – Happiness (Re:Boot Version)

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.


Diary Of Dreams – The Plague
The Cruxshadows – Deception
Clan Of Xymox – There’s No Tomorrow
Wolfsheim – The Sparrows And The Nightingales
New Order – True Faith 94
Gary Numan – Are ‘Friends’ Electric? (Live Version)


Leftfield feat. Lydon – Open Up
Underworld – Cowgirl
Front 242 – Welcome To Paradise
Die Krupps vs Nitzer Ebb – The Machineries of Joy
Front Line Assembly – Mindphaser
DAF – Der Mussolini

Reptile January 2012

I post my setlists to capture some of the feel of the event I played at. On this occasion, it’s impossible to do so. The dozen songs listed below might just look like a fairly average setlist for me, but they don’t sum up the atmosphere of the night as a whole. This was something special. Having put in some darkwave classics early on, for the second set, I aimed for a kind of ’90s Full Tilt Revival’ sort of concept – which actually worked.

Set 1 – 11:15pm-11:45pm

In Strict Confidence – Set Me Free
Die Krupps – Bloodsuckers
Das Ich – Destillat (VNV Nation Remix)
:Wumpscut: – Christfuck
Project Pitchfork – God Wrote
Diary Of Dreams – AmoK

Set 2 – 1:00am-1:30am

Cubanate – Oxyacetylene
Front 242 – Happiness (Re:Boot Version)
Underworld – Cowgirl
VNV Nation – Solitary
Apoptygma Berzerk – Love Never Dies Pt.1
Depeche Mode – Everything Counts (Live 101)

Reptile March 2011

Reptile is a monthly club held at the Minories at Tower Hill, playing a mix of gothic, industrial, rock, metal, 80s and various other alternative styles. It’s something of a regular of mine and many of my friends, so to get a chance to DJ there, and on my birthday at that, was a particularly special occasion. We’d agree beforehand that I’d be focusing on the industrial/electronic area, which could mean a lot of things to a lot of people. To me, it meant this…..


The Crüxshadows – Tears
Diary Of Dreams – The Curse
Spahn Ranch – Heretics Fork
Velvet Acid Christ – Futile (Nazi Bastard Mix)
Front Line Assembly – Mindphaser
Leæther Strip – Strap Me Down


Laibach – Tanz Mit Laibach
Nitzer Ebb – Let Your Body Learn
Front 242 – Welcome To Paradise
Die Krupps – Goldfinger
Skinny Puppy – Smothered Hope
Project Pitchfork – Timekiller
Depeche Mode – Photographic (Some Bizarre Version)
