On New Years Eve we are taking over one of London’s most iconic venues, Electric in Brixton!
The club has undergone various incarnations over it’s 107 year history, all aimed at being a place of entertainment & enjoyment for people in & around London.
The venue opened in 1911, during the days of silent movies, as The Palladium Picture House cinema. In the 70’s it transformed into a live music venue The Ace which hosted punk and new romantic bands such as The Clash and The Smiths through to the 1980’s.
In the mid 80’s the venue was renamed again becoming The Fridge. The Fridge was seminal to dance music culture, being one of the first London club venues to include video screens and a chill-out lounge. Of course it also played host to huge acts such as New Order, Eurythmics, the Pet Shop Boys, R&B act Soul II Soul had a residency playing hip hop and funk at the venue in the late 80s, with Jazzie B (founder of the Soul II Soul collective) describing the club by saying “It has a certain ambience that new venues don’t have“.
While it may be a classic building, the venue underwent at multi million pound refurbishment in 2011 when it finally became Electric. Now boasting state of the art sound & lighting, Electric retains it’s Edwardian history by including many of the buildings original features adding to its grandiose classical look.
As drum and bass lovers you may know the club for playing host to live shows from Subfocus, Sigma & Rudimental, as the setting for the notorious D&BArena Awards, or for being the place where Andy C did his first All Night show?
You can experience all this & create your own place in the clubs rich history by joining us on 31st December for a night of drum and bass madness as we celebrate the end of 2018 & see in 2019. Let’s kick off yet another year in one of the capitals most historic venues with a bang!
