ANOMALOUS DJ's Antony Price and Sam Kingfisher are co-founders of the Anomalous collective. Whilst having primarily focused on audio visual production and nightlife documentation for the last decade, they are diverse selectors who have produced parties and maintained residencies throughout London since the late 90’s. Sam sways towards the bass end of the spectrum with a deep passion for old soul, dub, reggae and dusty 7's. Based in New York and Philadelphia for the last few years under his Kingfisher Sound system moniker, he is now back in the UK bringing his vintage snap, crackle and pop back to the party. Antony brings the electronic element, specialising in deeper modern 4/4 rhythms alongside early ambient house and techno.

★ The Venue ★
There are two distinct spaces within HWK: “HWK Bar and Restaurant” and “The Lot”. Both are suitable for mixed households. HWK was originally a small cocktail and DJ bar that launched in Summer 2019 with an intimate interior courtyard that serves as an oasis in the industrial landscape of Hackney Wick.
As the bar itself was too small to comply to social distancing measures post lockdown, we initially focused on the interior courtyard and converted it into a restaurant and drinks area with seating. Professional sound was installed, providing drinks and diners with surround sound from the DJs in the bar.
The Lot is the space next door. A small parking lot that we converted over Summer 2020 to Hackney Wick’s best outdoor venue, which has hosted plenty of DJs and parties, including REVIVEHER, Crossbreed, Nick The Record, A Guy Called Gerald, James Priestley, Red Rack’em, Kiwi, Ray Mang, Phonica Records, Paranoid London, Grace Sands, Adonis DJs, Audio Farm Festival, Laila Sakini, Crazy P, Kristy Harper and Eliza Rose.
Expect the best underground DJs from talented upcoming producers to legendary selectors, encompassing all manner of genres.
Half the space is covered by a roof with drop down heating, making the venue suitable all year round.
We’ve also installed a custom built, high fidelity sound system from East London Audio.
The Lot has plenty of seating across the venue, including private booths and gazebos, as well as a dance floor.
Both spaces have their own unique atmosphere and DJs. If you prefer intimacy and the music a little quieter, head to HWK Bar, where you can enjoy a fantastic selection of wines, cocktails and The Lot's street food, alongside some seriously excellent music selected by a varied roster of acclaimed record collectors.
And if you want al fresco vibes and a party atmosphere with DJs, head to The Lot!
