Easter isn’t far away, which means way too much chocolate and hot cross buns here at the Deep House London office and the only way to shift all that extra weight you’re liable to put on over the holiday period is to get out that and dance it off. Over the Easter bank hol promoters usually amass some of their deadliest line-ups for the first quarter of the year and 2014 is no exception. We’ve trawled through the endless list of events that are happening this week to bring you our choice selections for both London and the rest of the UK, aren’t we nice eh?
Giles Smith and James Priestley get their 2014 campaign into full swing with this bash, which takes place at Brixton Electric in south London. Techno godfather Derrick May headlines, alongside Switzerland’s multi-deck master, Deetron plus up ‘n’ comer, Arnaldo from Argentina. Giles and James will also be on hand in room 1 to get the party bumping. Over in room 2 the highly-regarded trio, Livity Sound, AKA Kowton, Peverelist and Asusu take charge of the entire night…

mulletover 10th Birthday
Like secretsundaze, mulletover is a London clubbing institution and this party marks a very special occasion as they celebrate 10 years in the business. As most of you will appreciate, it’s not easy to survive for so long in London’s increasingly competitive clubbing market, so mulletover’s anniversary is definitely one worth celebrating in style. Their curation is on point as always with French maestro Dyed Soundorom on the bill alongside Laura Jones, Ryan Elliot, Meat, Futureboogie Recordings and mulletover’s very own Geddes.
