It's now 10 years since we embarked on our adventure at Coldharbour Lane's Living Bar. The journey has taken across the best venues South of the River including Babalou, Plan B, The Whitehouse, Ministry of Sound and Corsica Studios but it is of course, our parties at The POW for which we are most revered so it's only fitting that's our home for our 10th Birthday.
Headliner our show is one of our favourite DJs from recent years, Berlin’s DJ T. Thomas Koch aka DJ T. has been a vital part of electronic music and club culture for over 20 years. Uniquely accomplished in both influence and scope, he has excelled in every one of his incarnations: DJ, label owner, producer, club operator, publisher and journalist. His career behind the decks began in Frankfurt, Throughout the 1990s, he was booked at all of the city’s essential clubs, including long lasting residencies at Plastik, Dorian Gray and The Box; by the end of that decade, Frankfurt, one of Europe’s epicentres of electronic dance music, had become indelibly linked with the name ‘DJ T.
T. also founded influential German-language magazine Groove. T.’s intention, which to this day, it remains as one of Germany’s most important publications for electronic music. At the start of the millennium, he and friend Patrik Dechent opened Monza, playing a decisive part in it becoming one of the City’s hotspots. In 2002 T. (along with M.A.N.D.Y and Bookashade) set up Get Physical, which is to this day one of the leading Global labels in house and techno
Whether DJing in his hometown of 5 years, Berlin, gigging internationally, T.’s sets are invariably stirring and extraordinarily varied. T. is no style fascist, nor is he a slave to trends; he is a bass- and groove-addicted club historian, with a firm grasp of the contemporary. His sets turn years of electronic music history into one finely rendered journey, making him the perfect choice to mix “Strictly DJ T. – 25 Years of Strictly Rhythm”.
Completing the line-up are long-standing residents Elijah Collins, Samantha Blackburn and Rob Alldritt along with Soul of Noise, while Le Piscine and Point DJs take over the Boudoir.
