Whether it’s a Friday or Saturday night Dirty DJ in Kensington, Shoreditch or Oxford, a Live Band Night in Kensington or Oxford, or one of our carefully curated playlists the rest of the week, we forego background music and push our old school beats to the front to give them the respect they deserve.

  • Live Music

Our music is classic, nostalgic and magnetic - think old school hip-hop, funk and soul tracks with beats and lyrics so fire they take you back and take you higher at the same time.
