DJING AT THE CLAPTON HART

We’ll be playing records at our local The Clapton Hart on Friday 17th July.

This will be our first DJ set there and the concept is that we’ll be playing new music and records that don’t get played so much at the club night.

Think of it as the first hour of Scared To Dance where we play more unknown songs and those which you can’t dance to but over the course of the evening. 

Come on down from 9pm to 1am and ease yourself into the weekend.
