Get Diverted’s obligatory opening party this year brings Get Physical’s DJ T. to the much revered roof terrace alongside local hero and Lower East label head, Cozzy D.

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” which is being released in the build up to Get Diverted’s Opening Party.

We are excited to welcome back Cozzy D, a Get Diverted favourite having first spun under his Ninja Cowboy’s guise in 2008 and someone whose career has shared the same upward trajectory. Pushing an eclectic taste on deep house and techno, the phrase “forward thinking” is banding around lightly but is very apt to describe his sets. Cozzy runs the highly acclaimed Lower East label and with this and his productions going from strength to strength he is a name that looks set only to grow in reputation and stature.

Tred Benedict completes our line up of guests, who you will all be familiar with from his popular Daytime terrace party “Spilt Milk”. Tred is a modern example of the rising talent emerging from the London underground music scene and will be joined by residents Samantha Blackburn, Elijah Collins – so ensure you make your Good Friday a Great Friday with the first terrace party of the summer!

LWE presents Mixed
The last weekend of every month
March 28th
10pm – 4am

Village Underground
54 Holywell Lane

+ special guest

Tickets: … cEpxMAAVcQ

Following on from the first two shows we’ve called on a diverse range of producers for this one at Village Underground. 

Rupert Taylor, aka XXXY, has been involved in music all his life, but he's really made a name for himself over the last few years with his modern take on garage cross rhythms and dubby bass lines, with the sound palette of classic house and techno jams. The Mancunian now residing in Berlin has released on the likes of Waze & Odyssey’s label, Street Tracks, remixed Ghost Poet and still holds down a monthly show on Rinse FM.

Trus’me immersed himself in all types of music from a young age, which has meant his productions flaunt sounds from a whole hybrid of genres. Consistently creative with his DJ sets, the use of sampling in his tracks has stamped a unique hallmark across his club driven sounds. Having remixed for acts such as LCD Soundsystem, Motor City Drum Ensemble & Alton Miller, he has also collaborated with Chez Damier.

PLUS we’ve got a very special DJ performance coming from an artist that has releases on the Young Turks and more. All will be revealed soon!

Rooted in house, Mixed will explore the breath of the scene to celebrate eclecticism and the cross pollination of styles in electronic music. With the aim to showcase revolutions in the genre, Mixed will draw on forward thinking artists that have redefined styles through originality in the studio and innovation in the club.

Max Cooper - Emergence

Max Cooper's Emergence is the story of how "everything comes from (almost) nothing". A groundbreaking visual and musical show, it sees ex-scientist Cooper create an overpowering sensory and dancefloor experience.

Ranging freely across time, from the first days of the universe to the fierce intensity of modern society and beyond, Emergence is a one-man show soundtracking pulsing techno, electronica and starkly beautiful beatless passages against the unique visuals of multiple visual artists. Its premiere was described by pivotal US festival promoter Sean Horton - the man who bought shows like I:SAM to the US - as "the most beautiful and stunning display of talent and technology we've ever hosted".

Hotflush Presents…

Unit 13, Allhallows Lane, EC4R 3UL

Dense & Pika
Jack Haighton

Hotflush returns to London for the first time in over a year to present REFLEXION, a new concept putting members of the core roster alongside artists who reflect the deep, forward-thinking philosophy of the label. In its first incarnation bossman Scuba and high-flying Dense & Pika are joined by Function, the techno titan long admired by all in the Hotflush camp for his seminal work on Ostgut Ton and as part of Sandwell District.

Needing no cues, Scuba has long remained part of the fabric in London’s scene, despite residing in Berlin. Continually pushing the boundaries with events, releases and everything in between; he has spearheaded the label into being one of the most respected imprints of modern times. LWE regulars might remember the outstanding set he played in the car park at Tobacco Dock for Drumcode Halloween.

If 2013 was the year that the hype started bubbling, 2014 was the year that Dense & PIka lived up to this; becoming one of the most talked about producers in the country and beyond. Representing the new breed of techno DJs in London, Dense & PIka’s bass driven and industrial sound has allowed them to make present-day classics.

One of Techno's true underground heroes, Function has been engrossed in the music scene since the mid-90s and has refused to follow the trends ever since. This is best reflected in his album, “Incubation”; which combines ambient layers and atmospheric sounds that are routed in classic electronic traditions.

Support comes from Hotflush label manager and Berlin DJ stalwart, Jack Haighton, also the man behind sought-after digger edits series, Editions Haighton.

LWE presents Mixed
The last weekend of every month

Village Underground
54 Holywell Lane

30th January 2014
10pm - 4am

+Special guest


The first Mixed show will feature two of the most talked about breakthrough producers over the last few years and another newcomer who’s making ripples across the scene.

First up is Belfast based Ejeca who’s productions float through a variety of different styles, tempos and influences to create an intoxicatingly recognisable sound. Celebrated by his contemporaries for his talents in the studio, he has built up a reputation as being a “producer’s producer”; whilst still being able to bring the fire behind the decks. In the clubs he takes the crowd on a journey and brings the dance floor together with an expansive track selection.

On top of that we’ve called on a very special guest DJ who’s twist on classic house music has picked up fans from the European house and techno circuit as well as the more UK bass driven movement. This young hot shot has quickly become a trusted connoisseur of underground house music; bringing with him a real flare and an almost encyclopedic knowledge of our beloved genre.

Not forgetting Sisterhood who have been pushing all the right buttons with an organic sounding mix of house, disco and techno. Releasing with the likes of Tief, the guys have also picked up strong support from the likes of Bicep amongst many others.


Rooted in house, Mixed will explore the breath of the scene to celebrate eclecticism and the cross pollination of styles in electronic music. With the aim to showcase revolutions in the genre, Mixed will draw on forward thinking artists that have redefined styles through originality in the studio and innovation in the club.
