HOLIC & Junior Boy's Own Carnival Party
28 August 2011, London
London based Japanease Dj Tomoki Tamura's London based japanease crew HOLIC will bring special carnival party with London’s legendary label JBO.
Now that we enter August, we start the countdown to the biggest event of the London Summer - Carnival!!! Wanting to be involved in the incredible musical energy of Notting Hill that weekend, we couldn't resist the opportunity to head over to west London to show it what we do so well in the east, throwing parties!
For this event we are privileged to be working in conjunction with a label that is an institution of the London house scene, Junior Boys Own (JBO).
Started in the early 90s by Terry Farley, Andrew Weatherall, Cymon Eckel, Pete Heller and Steven Hall, JBO released underground house music by the likes of Underworld, The Chemical Brothers and the classic Black Science Orchestra's 'Where Were You?'. JBO was one of the first labels to represent British House music on a global stage, with the DJs of New York popularising their releases and raising their profile. Not keen to lean just on their label output, JBO put on some of the best one-off parties in the UK during the golden years of Acid House.
Spread over the course of 12 hours, Holic will be joined by JBOs Terry Farley and X-Press2 for what is lining up to be our most exciting party of the year. As veterans of the house scene, both DJs are digging deep into their collections for this special party at Acklam Road's Westbourne Studios. Of course our amazing residents djs will be on hand to keep the selections sweet all day and into the night.
