Thunder is about house, the music played will be underground house. Think Chicago and Clink Street, Detroit and Dalston, SoHo NYC and Soho LDN. Think bass, think basements, think sweat, think smoke and strobes. But this aint no retro thing, 1985 is relevant but so is tomorrow.
This is the sound of Thunder.
The first Thunder party will happen on Saturday 13th August with Neville Watson as guest. Fresh from conquering the Panorama Bar in Berlin last weekend and Bob Beaman Club in Munich this weekend, it will be a pleasure to hear Nevilles trademark jacking sound, which has brought his recordings acclaim on labels such Rush Hour, Clone, Poker Flat and Dissident, in small, sweaty Dalston basement.
Visions Video Bar is a classic East London acid house venue. Compact, low ceilinged, underground, and with a realness that comes with being owned by a former DJ since the late 80s. Drinks are cheap and its only 50 yards from the new Dalston Junction Overground station.
Support provided by Rick Hopkins, who was previously resident at Andy Weatheralls nights Blood Sugar and Haywire, and has played more techno influenced sounds all over the country and beyond. Joseph Apted who was resident at the long running disKomatiK parties. And Miles Simpson, erstwhile member of DJ trio Controllata, Beyond the Stars blogger and who has DJed at the likes of Disco Bloodbath, Horse Meat Disco and Faith.
