Event Details

Every Saturday, we fire up the strobe lights, turn the smoke machines to eleven and dance 'til dawn -- and then some. It's a proper rave in here.

Aurora Halal is the person behind the Sustain-Release gathering and the Mutual Dreaming party, as well as a fantastic DJ and producer with a taste for dark, psychedelic techno. It's a taste she's shared around the globe -- and here with us at the 'days nearly every month since we've opened our doors. For this appearance, she's joined by Bristol DJ and producer Batu. Batu helms the Timedance label, and as such sits at the bleeding edge of the UK's techno renaissance. His focus is on dubby, fractured tunes that are so entrancing, the experience feels less like a club night and more like a rite of passage. Paired with Aurora's trippy, enveloping textures, it ought to be quite a ride.
