We’re very much looking forward to our party this Friday with Chrissy Murderbot, down at the Big Chill House, London.

Chrissy will be joining us all the way from Chicago to celebrate a night of “juke-rave-jungle-disco-tropical-hi-NRG-gangsta-dancehall-ghetto-garage-core” plus the forth coming release of his new album on Planet Mu Records.

We’re also excited to announce that the winner of our, ever so slightly tongue-in-cheek, Royal Wedding DJ CompetitionLaurent, will also be joining to warm things up Mixcloud style, on Chrissy’s recommendation.

Check out some other notable entries ahead of the main event this week…
