One of the most important elements to a great club night is a cohesive music policy. And if that can be unique then, well, you’ve cracked it (unless you like thrash gabba). Just a year old and already there’s a ‘Teen Creeps record’ – a mix of synth pop, old school electro and the Italo end of disco, normally instrumental and typically something the trio of DJs have sourced from obscurity or your half-forgotten memories. There’s also something very pleasing about the way Conrad, Luther and Sam all take to the decks at the same time – as if the DJing is three times better than if they played one at a time.
The trio balance the cool (in both senses of the word) electronic side by inviting bands to play live. The Gaa Gaa’s, Phantom and Ty Segall have all taken to the stage, while the night we went down Skirts played their first ever gig of noisy dancefloor rock. It all attracts a crowd who like music, like dancing and don’t like an identikit night out. Our kind of people.
