Adam Beyer B2B Maceo Plex
Apollonia All Night Long
After nightfall, we’re transferring a crop of talent from London’s western limits to central on both legs of our weekender. Naturally, the only place fit for such an After Hours is Friday stage hosts fabric. As part of their XX birthday celebrations, the dance will continue below surface at 77a Charterhouse Street.
In sticking with the diverse nature of the daytime session, Friday’s jaunt to EC1 will showcase a cross-pollination of underground styles. High octane disco come courtesy of Rush Hour maverick Hunee, while Dan Snaith’s edgier alter ego, Daphni, will lay on some more sonically adventurous tones, followed by Friday Main Stage fellow Fort Romeau. Carrying on from his appearance under The Bridge by day, De School resident will continue his dancefloor education in fabric’s hallowed DJ booth by night. Bristol-based Timedance boss Batu makes a welcome return, while newcomer re:ni makes her well-deserved debut at the venue.
If Friday’s After Hours covers the vast tapestry of underground house music, Saturday’s leans firmly into the realm of techno. In a repeat of his day-and-night dual set from J2’s launch late last year, festival ambassador Adam Beyer will again grace fabric in a London double dose. Another EC1 favourite and leading contemporary artist within the electronic music field, Maceo Plex also crosses London to play. French tricolour Apollonia will be providing the chuggy groovers with assured Parisian panache. Bringing a blitzkrieg of music, Dax J will ensure that energy levels never dip whilst the atmosphere remains dark throughout.
