Whirl-y-Gig Global Disco Rave Drum n Bass and Psytrance on Saturday 19th May 2018
'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 colourful and friendly environment.
Whirl-y-Gig embodies the spirit of community in a carnival atmosphere. Bathed in rainbow rippling lights and wrapped in exotic décor, it is a festival of delights for people of all ages and places.
Dance to the Whirl-y-Beat and journey through Whirl-y-Gig's unique electronic landscape, where many diverse elements blend into one cohesive and unifying experience. From deep dubstep and hot drum'n'bass to tropical house and tribal trance, the Whirl-y-Mix embraces hints and flavours of celtic or global, classical or psychedelic, rock and pop, roots and radical. Whether it be African or European, Arabic or Asian, Whirl-y-Gig finds inspiration from around the world, yet is rooted firmly in the here and now of London's alternative club scene.
Whirl-y-Gig is an event difficult to describe and a moment difficult to miss. With a strong and loving life force, the Whirl-y-Sound is a musical heartbeat for a future global family.
'The intense atmosphere, the diverse clientele, that constant intimacy and openness – this is the way that Whirl-y-Gig has been since its inception in the 1980s.'(Vice January 2016) http://www.vice.com/en_uk/read/look-at-londons-longest-running-club-night-whirl-y-gig
