“Death at the Disco” w/ Disco Bloodbath, Trailer Trash, Eric Volta (Dirtybird)
Underneath the railway arches at Cargo the voices of a young couple can often be heard laughing and talking, but it is not possible to follow what they say. They seem to cease as soon as people cross the threshold. It disturbs no one and many have heard it but none has accounted for the voices or who the two may be. It is rumored to be the ghost of a young couple who first met and fell in love under these very arches. Returning every Halloween to see the young revelers dance, drink and fall in love just as they did those many moons ago.
To celebrate Cargo is throwing what will be one of the most spin chilling Halloween parties of the year. With the venue being completely revamped. Expect special guests and some ghostly surprises. On hand to keep you entertained in the depths of the Arches are: Disco Blood Bath, Trailer Trash and Eric Volta.
This promises to be a scream. So why not come down and see if you can catch a peak at the ethereal lovers for yourself.
DJ Sets from:
Disco Blood Bath
Disco Bloodbath began life as an irregular speakeasy party in the basement of a Caribbean restaurant on the wrong end of East London’s Amhurst Road. The party and its resident DJs quickly gained notoriety for the unique blend of raw disco, spaced-out italo, vintage house and proto-techno being played. Their skill in blending these sounds together has taken Damon Martin and Ben Pistor to some of the UK’s most discerning dancefloors. Fabric, Bugged Out, Bestival, The Big Chill, Secretsundaze, Horse Meat Disco, Lovebox, The Warehouse Project and Matter have all played host to the Disco Bloodbath sound. In the last couple of years the boys have also traveled globally to gigs in Japan, Berlin, Ibiza, Paris, Croatia, Dubai, Barcelona, including sets at Snowbombing Festival, We Love at Space and Bar 25 amongst others.
TrailerTrash is the East-end rave rodeo that has defiantly stamped its filthy mark on London’s underground electronic dance scene over the last 6 years. Showcasing some of the best DJ’s in town since 2004 when friends, Mikki Most & Dan and Hannah Holland decided that Shoreditch badly needed a shake up, and the legendary Friday night was born!
Now approaching its 6th Birthday, TrailerTrash ran as a weekly party in Shoreditch for over 5 years with residents Hannah Holland, Mikki Most & Ian Robinson playing an explosive soundtrack of electrified booty shake, jackin’ techno rave, distorted disco and dirty off kilter jump-up sounds. They have now moved on to bigger parties putting on 1000-capacity warehouse events every couple of months, hosting dance stages at Festivals (inc. Lovebox 2010), hosting main rooms at clubs such as Fabric and Ministry of Sound, as well as finding time to open their own bar last year: Dalston Superstore, which has become a London institution after just 12 months.
Although born in London, as the child of expatriates Eric Volta grew up travelling with parents in numerous countries across Europe, the Middle East & South East Asia. This gave him great insight into many cultures & in 2002 he moved back to London to study. Since then Eric Volta has started Logicalnoise Records and released tracks as Kid Dub, D Dub & Voltaeric for numerous record labels. As passion for new forms of house music grew a new endeavour manifests itself in the form of Eric Volta as an artist. His music is a reflection of the many moods that vary from beautiful open summer venues within the industrial areas to the hidden dungeon venues in the heart of London city. As well as a need infuse his Malayan & Indonesian heritage into house & techno music, Eric Volta is heavily influenced by the vibes of London’s underground Sunday parties.
