Soul-Identity Midsummer Shakedown Boat Party
After last year's little sabbatical the boat party is BACK and we're raring to go. We've had some amazing boat parties over the last few years and we aim to continue in the same vein starting with this year's Midsummer Shakedown Boat Party on Saturday June 23rd 2012... 1PM-5PM.
This year on the upper deck, we've got a homage to house past and present with Soul-Identity resident Rob Coley joined on the turntables with not one but two of today's more in-demand DJ producers.
25 year old Italian underground house hero NICHOLAS (No More Hits / 4Lux / Needwant) has been a key protagonist in injecting a more classic house sound into today's more discerning dancefloors, and his recent compilations 'Still Playing House' and last year's Nu Groove retrospective are drenched in a soulful yet modern take on an early 90's sensibility.
Previously a founding member of Disco Bloodbath, DAN BEAUMONT is currently one half of production duo Jam Factory and also proprietor of East London hotspot Dalston Superstore. He can also be found co-hosting the fortnightly Rhythm Connection Radio Show on NTS Radio.
Everyone should know about the bottom deck by now. Conga lines, out the hat selections and alcohol induced sporadic dance offs. Yes, the CIGARETTES AND SUNSHINE crew lead proceedings downstairs and will be joined by one of Norwich's finest selectors RAD DAD (Beatfix). Expect soul, funk, boogie, hip-hop and nuff good time tuneage to make you bounce.
If you've been before, you know we do this for the love. Two intimate floors of music on a well-equipped boat (complete with outside sun deck!) allowing you great views the length and breadth of London's skyline. Once docked we head to a yet undisclosed venue until 12am for the annual after party featuring more hedonistic madness.
