Easily the biggest event we've ever done. The ever sagacious Ross From Friends joins us for an exquisite night of equanimous dance music from a man who has pushed sound, production and serene music to the limits.

On our inveterate quest to bring underground dance music to Durham, this feels like the icing on the cake. Collaborating with our good friends and North East powerhouses in Chain Reaction, a collective that have been making strides to push the North East's cultural significance.


Ross From Friends, AKA British producer Felix Clary Weatherall, an
artist who demonstrates an ever-increasing mastery of his craft, ‘Tread’ is a record that is at once sleek and melodic but also eminently danceable, nostalgic but brilliantly modern. NME praised Felix's unique sonic identity as “a mind-melting picture that takes in house, techno, jazz and ambient music, and ties it together to make something distinctly unique” and Rolling Stone declared him “a master of fun, gooey textures”. Similar praise came from the likes of Resident Advisor, The Wire, Pitchfork, AV Club, Loud & Quiet, DJ Mag, Clash, PopMatters, FADER and more.

Ross From Friends has graced stages at the likes of Coachella, Glastonbury, Primavera, Lost Village, Green man and Sonar to name a few. 2022 witnessed multiple sold-out dates across previous tours throughout the UK, EU, Australia and North America. Felix really has made his sound international become a global superstar off the back of it.



Barry Can't Swim, potentially the nicest DJ producer in the game. humble and exceptional at what he does. This man truly will go the distance, his jazz infused music breathes life into a tedious house scene and  his ability to fashion together an incredible breaks track (skylab district) shows his breadth in ability.

Josh and his girlfriend joined me and the gang after seeing the sights Durham has to offer. Fuelled nothing more than Gin and Tonic, Josh and his girlfriend brought the party. A vast difference in musical energy from Sammy Virji but the energy in the room was no less electric. Spinning some of Barry Cant Swim's tunes in a club is always a challenge, their slow and blissful sound isn't often associated with losing your mind in a dark club but it was evident Josh had done this before. Combining those surreal, melodic tracks with some hefty, yet also melodic house and break tracks. For a man that's only been mixing for a few months, Barry Cant Swim's impressive composure on the decks is that of a seasoned pro. A faultless set and night ensued with nothing but the best vibes, a true collection of fans enjoying a fantastics artists tunes. Signs continued to litter the crowd, 'Daddy Barry' and ' Merry Berry Would Knock You Out' were the most notable. 

Alex Hill took over and stepped the crowd up a notch in the superb style we've come to expect from the young man. Thanks to everyone that came down, we continue to go from strength to strength, supplying you with nothing but the best dance music artists. A very different show from Sammy Virji, but no less enjoyable.
