80’s parties, 80’s ideas, 80’s playlists in fact all things 80’s

Blondie in London

I was lucky enough to get invited to the Blondie concert at the O2 in Brixton. Not only that I was given backstage passes by the bands drummer Clem Burke, who I am pictured with below: From the when 80's star Debbie Harry and the band launched into their set with the new wave classic ‘One Way or Another’ from 1978’s Parallel Lines, the crowd at the sold out Brixton Academy were whipped into a jubilant fever, something the band

Stoke Newington – 50th Birthday

Stoke Newington - I played in a great party venue a few weeks back called the Old Church in Stoke Newington, London. The occasion was a 50th birthday and the requested music was 80's and more of the New Romantic style from that time frame. The building lent itself to uplighting as this really brought out its features. I also showed images from 1967 news reals as this was the date that the birthday couple had been born in.  

Tower Bridge, London – 80’s Party

Tower Bridge, London - I get to play at all sorts of venues in both in the Uk and abroad, but the walkway in Tower Bridge has got to be one of the most unusual. I followed on from an amazing Indian Tabla band, with a Haircut One Hundred 80's playlist (the 40th birthday girl was a big Nick Heywood fan). This was an 80's Party like no other I had played at, the glass floor 42 metres above the River

70’s 80’s & 90’s Themed wedding

70's 80's & 90's Themed wedding at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond. It was a first time I have had a musical theme such as this for a wedding, and it worked really well. Having a big (in wedding terms) crowd of 150 helped as well. Starting with the 70's and ending with 90's meant it covered the tunes form the youth of the majority of the guests and because they new that this was how I was going to play

80s Music

80s Music - Musically we had an enormous  variety From the start of the eighties we had the New Romantics and at the end we finished up with Old Skool House the 80’s had a lot to offer in terms of music and it is still very relevant on todays dancefloor.

Glitterbox – Ministry of Sound London

I like to keep abreast of what is happening musically and recently went to the Ministry of Sound to catch up on the latest tunes being played by the likes of Joey Negro, John Morales and  Todd Terry at the Defected night that has been getting rave revues in Ibiza namely Glitterbox. There are some great mixes of classic 80's tunes that really help to lift a party. Below is a playlist of some of the Glitterbox tracks I may

80’s disco night Bisoux Lounge Esher

I was invited back to Bisoux Lounge last week to kick of the Xmas party season with an 80's disco night, think Glitterbox. I was quite pleased to be asked when you look at the other DJ's on the December rota, with most of them being Ibiza residents. We had a great party night with the venue full of a mix of all ages who danced the night away till 02.00 in the morning.   Come Into My Life PLAY

ExCel Centre 80’s Corporate Party

Corporate Party - The day after getting back from Ibiza I went straight on to play at the ExCel centre in London for the Angular Connect After Party. AngularConnect is a 2-day, multi-track conference featuring the world’s leading Angular experts, including the core Angular team at Google. There were over 2000 guests, not as big as the Copper Box event I played at a couple of months before, but still large. The theme for the party was 80's chart music

80’s Remixed Party – Mables Covent Garden – London

 I played at a great venue recently, Mable's in Covent Garden. Upstairs they have a great bar and restaurant, but go down a few flights of stairs in to the basement and you are in an amazing party area with great friendly staff. My brief for this event was remixed 80's or eighties tunes with a modern feel to them. So if you need to hire a London DJ give me a call.   80's remixed playlist In Private (12"

Cruel Summer – Spectrum Disco

It's a Cruel Summer......Here is a recent playlist from one on my 80's nights, it gives an example of the variety of music that I play. There are so many great tunes from the eighties that every party I play at the music is different. There is the just so much from New Romantics at the start of the decade to the start of House music at the end. Title Artist Wild World (Long And Saxy) Maxi Priest What I Like
