For our first night we've been looking to set a standard, and in the first of our 2 part summer series, we're delighted to announce that we'll be joined by the lads from Horse Meat Disco.
We like many others have been kept dancing to the distinct sounds of HMD, though years of crate digging, party starting and boat pulling the HMD crew have an extensive knowledge of everything soul, motown, disco, and funk.
Now approaching their tenth year of existence, the four-man DJ outfit have continued to lead the way in the disco field with packed residencies at their HQ Eagle London, various venues in New York, Prince Charles in Berlin and Silencio/Wanderlust in Paris.
The event will take place on Saturday 13th July at The Nerve Centre, Derry.
More details to follow on residents and back bar support DJ's..

Check out this interview with James Hillard from HMD on where the idea of this party came from, and why it's still standing strong today.
‘It comes from a headline in a newspaper that was concealed in a stack which was about to be thrown out. The headline was: Horse Meat Discovered in Salami but it had been partially obscured to reveal Horse Meat Disco. It was like a eureka moment! A great name that made no sense but conjured up many good and bad images in my head. To this day people have different reactions to the name. All are valid and mostly filthy.’ --James Hillard
