One of Londons best-loved record shops, Phonica Records celebrates its eighth birthday this October, with Leftroom, Phonica and Heidis The Jackathon along for the rollercoaster ride.

Renowned as a showcase for disco, house and techno, and taking music along new avenues with every release, Matt Tolfreys Leftroom Records is an electrifying addition to the Great Suffolk Street Warehouse lineup. Hard-working, experimental and energetic thats Matt Tolfrey. Joining him are Visionquest  Ryan Crosson, Shaun Reeves and Lee Curtiss a new generation of DJs from Detroit whose focus is on creating a unique, deep and emotive sound. US live duo Benoit & Sergio play a set showcasing their pop-tech-house sound, and deep house rising star Sam Russo completes the groove-led lineup for the Leftroom arch.

Phonica Records has a long history as a hub for electronic musicians and fans its a hive of excitement and activity for vinyl lovers who come from all over the UK. Opened in 2003, Phonica Records quickly established itself within the electronic music scene. Phonica Records is a breeding ground for talent, and a meeting point for DJs produers, collectors and fans alike. Former staff include Heidi, who now has her own show on Radio 1, Hector (Mobilee & 2020 Vision), Anthea (Cecille & Mojuba), Will Saul and James Priestley (Secretsundaze) its like a whos who of dance music! And now, to celebrate its eighth anniversary, Phonica comes to Great Suffolk Street Warehouse, with a line-up that demonstrates why Phonica Records is still at the cutting edge almost a decade on three rooms of booming bass, booty-shakin and throbbing beats.

The Phonica arch is a hotbed of electronic genius, with UK funky, garage and dubstep eclecticist Joy Orbison leading the charge. Having begun this year with the launch of a loud and unabashed Wolf+Lamb collaboration, hip-hop-meets-house masters Soul Clapbring the party to the Phonica arch this October. Phonica Records manager Simon Rigg joins the fold as one of the Phonica staples, and is joined by Phonica favourites Soho and The Vangelis for this birthday party to remember.

As one of the original crew, Heidi is no stranger to the Phonica Records ethos, and shes returning to London with her night, The Jackathon with a few tricks up her sleeve. Now a Radio 1 DJ with one foot firmly in the underground house and bass scenes, Heidi will be celebrating the launch of her acclaimed Jackathon mix-CD, and is joined for this special warehouse event by Mathias Kaden a turntablist with impeccable taste in house and techno  Deetron, whose take on Detroit techno is melodic and housey, and purveyors of pure house Waifs & Strays.

This October, Phonica Records brings together a history of electronic music from London to Detroit via Berlin, with the help of some very special guests. Come join the party
