Finished your coursework with 21 seconds to go? Then you’ll be ripe and ready for a good ol’ nostalgia session down at the original Night Kitchen with the deepest crew in garage. There’ll be live dancers, a vintage 90s art piece and even a proper throwback Woolworths Pic ’n’ Mix stand!
Pretty Pretty Good: Gerd Janson, Young Marco, Debonair
Hope Works // Saturday 3rd February // £15
PPG bring the heat once again with a killer line-up featuring the nicest man in dance music, Gerd Janson. His Running Back label has just celebrated 15 years at the top of the game, having put out releases by Todd Terje, Theo Parrish, and Henrik Schwarz. What’s more, the closing set comes from the tastemaker all the kids are talking about, Young Marco. NTS Radio’s Debonair heads up the rave cave.
Muzik: De La Swing, Kinnerman, L&F Projekt
Code Warehouse // Friday 16th February // £13.20
Code’s house specialists Muzik bring another weighty headliner to town in the form of Spaniard De La Swing.

Support Elrow labelmate Kinnerman and Muzik residents L&F Projekt.
HW: The Black Madonna, nd_Baumecker and more
Hope Works // Friday 16th February // £20

Foundry // Tuesday 20th February // £11
TTC continue their 20th year in business with another huge yet credible booking in the form of UK house heavyweight George Fitzgerald, an artist who’s been in the game for over ten years with his label Man Make Music.
