Mantissa meets Discovery w/ AV/N & Jay Bacall Sat 20th May
Upstairs- Following their impressive debut party back in February, Mantissa are back with their second London installment. Expect the night to remain true to the Mantissa ethos, refusing to be defined by genre, with all the residents being given the freedom to showcase their signature styles through extended, uncompromised sets.Line up:Mantissa [Tom Allman b2b Jambo] – The Mantissa founders lead the night with an extended b2b set. Whilst retaining their own styles, these two DJ’s compliment each other brilliantly and will keep the dancefloor moving with ease as they move effortlessly between genres.AV/N [Locked In / Mantissa] – Returning to London after showcasing his talents at numerous clubs abroad is AV/N, closing out the night once again. Expect to hear an unadulterated set from the talented DJ as he combines ambient palettes with heavy percussion to keep you on your toes till the end.
Downstairs- Jac The Disco and Neil Thornton are back in the May disco saloon as they return to London’s original Disco pub the Horse & Groom for their May instalment. As always there will be some extra hot visuals as the Discovery residents will be rising the disco heat. The Discovery party ethos is simple; bringing the party to the party, where the guys and girls on the dance floor have as much fun as their guests who join them in the DJ booth; thus providing a magical carpet ride throughout the entire evening where you can expect to hear the finest disco old and new, four to the floor party jams, rediscovered classics and lots more. Joining Discovery we welcome Jay Bacall co-founder of Esoteric Club nights and regular at Alfresco Events after more than 20 years ‘proper’ Londoner Jay is still immersing himself in all things house music.With roots in disco, Motown and electronic synth pop as well as being a former ardent raver, Jay has amassed a huge collection of vinyl dating back to the 70’s. Having played many a US house gig at some of London’s most iconic venues in the past, in more recent times Jay’s style has evolved and whilst still selecting house also throws electro, afro beat and disco re-edits in to the mix.
With several projects lined up for 2017 Jay is also looking forward to sharing a summer stage for Alfresco Festival with Optimo, Psychemagik and Felix DickinsonThe Discovery parties have been headstrong for 8 years and have seen acclaimed guests such as Tornado Wallace, Mark E, Pete Herbert, Dicky Trisco, I:Cube, Andy Blake, Eric Duncan, Rahaan, Justin Vandervolgen, Young Marco, Baby G, Loud E, The Revenge and many more joining them in the DJ Booth.
