Halloween is a personal highlight in my clubbing calendar – not only is it the only time of the year where it’s socially acceptable to dress as a berk but all the promoters seemingly curate line ups of epic proportions. With so much to choose from across our nation’s capital, my attention turns to Bristol based Just Jack who this year are throwing down a special Freak Boutique night at South London’s favoured Corsica Studios on Saturday 2nd November.
With Berghain resident and vinyl aficionado Nick Hoppner headlining the proceedings, it’s evident that Just Jack are not cutting any corners. Having seen Mr. Hoppner play before, he is perhaps one of the most versatile and daring DJs currently running the circuit. His ability to mesh deep, dubby techno and twisted house music (with some underground grime thrown in for good measure) makes him a must see for any discerning clubber.
Also on the bill, is Amir Alexander – a rising starlet of the scene with previous releases on Hypercolour and Argot as well as a forthcoming release prepped and primed for the marvellous secretsundaze imprint. Finally, completing the guest line up is Prime Numbers head honcho Trus’Me. The self proclaimed “Mancunian Music Head” will be bringing his hypnotic and eclectic style to the Corsica Studios sound system. Naturally, the Just Jack residents will be in attendance with Cher DJs, Dan Wild and Tom Rio make sure the dance floor bubbles up nicely before handing over the reigns to the impressive array of guests that night.
Unfortunately, tickets for this event are sold out! Fortunately mind you, we are giving one lucky ready the chance to win 2x free entry to the Just Jack Freak Boutique at Corsica Studios on November 2nd by simply emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your most spooky Halloween house anthem. Winnners will be contacted via email by Friday 1st November.
In the meantime however, allow yourself to be taken on a journey through the farthest confines of underground goodness by Nick Hoppner in this Osgut Ton Boiler Room Berlin takeover. Essential stuff.
