Eton Messy were one of the first collectives who really utilised what social media offered in order to create something unique in the world of dance music. By founding the pioneering YouTube channel of the same name, Eton Messy changed the way music lovers received and enjoyed new tracks across the world.

The channel was launched in 2011 by Adam Englefield, who was keen to share music he liked with his friends at university. He was then joined by Charlie Wedd, who had organised club nights in Bristol. Fast forward to 2016 and Eton Messy is still standing strong as an authority when it comes to chilled, retro sounding house and garage music. 

Now the duo are excelling with their own DJ sets, touring the world bringing some of the sounds they love to the best clubs and festivals including Bestival, ADE and Shapes. 

Their mix for us features dreamy party tracks from the likes of Ben Pearce, Pedestrian and George Fitzgerald. It's an hour long testiment to their sound which pushes music from the past and the present in equal measure. 

Next up on Eton Messy's agenda is a three hour set at the Tuesday Club and an appearance at the brand new snowsports Groove CairnGorm festival in Scotland.
