It gets dark early and it’s beginning to get seriously, stupidly cold. Which is great, because it gives you the perfect excuse to ignore the outside world and hole up in a club for the night, where it’s nice and warm and… Okay, it’ll still be pretty dark, but who cares when you’re having fun and partying? Check our three top options below for a solid weekend of party bliss, or head to our Clubs page for more great options.
Seminal dubstep act Digital Mystikz, Mala and Coki play a rare live show at this aptly named night. Few can rinse out the huge, dubbby frequencies with as much proficiency and sheer wallop as they can, so this should be a treat. As if that wasn’t enough to entice you, underground house ace New York Transit Authority will be playing back-to-back with D&B don Mickey Pearce, plus further sets from Mensah, Jack Swift and more.
London, prepare to get fabulous. The city’s foremost, glitter-drenched party animals Sink The Pink are teaming up with Shoreditch club XOYO to bring back their most delightful and debauched creation, Gloria. Expect a prime party fuelled by the energy, eccentricity and ethos of Sink The Pink, and soundtracked by an outstanding line-up of DJs: French disco-house don Breakbot, from Ed Banger Records, will be playing a rare set, and fellow Funky Frenchman Dimitri From Paris will also be relaying lush grooves alongside. Further colourful dancefloor fillers will be provided by electro-disco dude Mylo, and DFA’s Shit Robot. The team are ‘bringing uplifting, love-drenched dance music back’, say organisers, under the watchful eye of the glamorous Gloria. It’ll be a classy collision that appeals both to LGBT and straight communities. Having said that, the idea is to leave the labels at the door and lose yourself in a night of fine electronic music and unrestrained fabulousness. The result should be even more fun than watching a cage-fighting match between Gloria Estefan and Gloria Gaynor.
Naples-based club and party crew WOO! return to London after hosting a series of great parties back in 2008-2012. This time around they’re going for a Sunday session, helmed by Italian house and disco producer Alexander Robotnick, plus Justin Berkmann and Pako S.
