NEW VENUE, BLOC, 39 Autumn Street, Hackney Wick, London E3 2TT,
Whirl-y-Gig Winter Warmer @ New Venue
We celebrate the new year at our new venue with a house warming set from ORANGE ADE. First rising to fame with a remix of Deep Forest’s “Forest Hymn” which featured on our Global Disco CD compilation, Orange Ade has since produced a vast collection of party hits, primarily rooted in drum n bass but embracing dub, breaks, house and always exploring new horizons.
“Autumn Street Studios is a warehouse space in Hackney Wick, very close to Pudding Mill Lane tube station. Recently refurbished and provided with L-Acoustics audio systems, this space is now home of Bloc warehouse events: here’s where you can rave until the early hours, enjoying underground electronic, house, garage and disco with a top quality sound system. One of the bigger clubs in Hackney, you’ll find ravers and electronic lovers alike flocking to Autumn Street Studios.” (DesignMyNight)
Now renamed simply as BLOC, this space provides the perfect blank canvas for Whirl-y-Gig’s unique colorful and friendly environment
