Whether the crew are playing in London,Lisbon or hosting a room at Carl Cox’ residency at Space in Ibiza for 3 seasons on the bounce its all about dropping party starting 80s disco,boogie and proto house, evoking the spirit and dipping into the soundtrack of legendary NYC clubs such as ‘Paradise Garage’ & ‘Studio 54’.
