This August Midnight Funk Association returns to Queen of Hoxton with a very special event in partnership with BULLDOG Gin!! As well as a super special headline DJ we’ll be serving a new special menu of Bulldog Gin & Tonics as well as giving out Bulldog Gin goodies all night long!
To celebrate this collaboration we are bringing one of our favourite female DJs to emerge into UK dance scene in recent years, Monki - DJ (BBC Radio 1 / ZOO Music), into our basement club for a very special House and Disco set! To hear more, check out her set in the Mixmag lab here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVts9V-z6u8
DJ Monki is one of a series of amazing female underground tastemaker championing new electronic talent at the moment, her regular Radio 1 show (Sunday night 1-4am) and digital imprint ZOO Music are both incredibly consistent outputs playing and releasing the best in House Disco and Techno. With a BBC Radio 1 show under her control, her own party brand and a record label and collaborations with some of the biggest names in dance music, Monki presides over a mini empire. In the seven years since she first got involved in the music business, she has risen to every challenge with aplomb, working her way up from an intern at Rinse FM to become an influential international selector, with gigs across Britain and beyond. Monki brings the party wherever she goes so we cant wait to bring her to QOH this Bank Holiday weekend!
MFA is a party for Shoreditch paying homage to all ends of the house & disco spectrum, inspired by the lights, sounds and sites from 1970s New York Loft Discos to modern day warehouse raves, MFA is the new disco party for girls, boys and everything in between. Boasting a lineup of largely Female residents DJs and Drag queens you’ll be taken on a journey of Funkadelic delights and Disco dancing into the early hours.
Don't expect the cheesy stylings and bad nostalgia of the disco nights your dad goes to twice a year - MFA is a party to bring you fresh, forward-thinking beats and all the gems of house & disco's first wave that got this whole clubbing lark moving in the first place.
At the midnight hour, the MFA comes alive. Expect a flurry of light, sound (& even a cup of funk juice) as Queen of Hoxton is filled with treats for the mind and soul, and ears.
Alongside our headline set from Monki, we have residents Alieen & Lou Ellis (Virgo Festival) mixing up a storm as they ply our usual trade of House, Disco, 70s and 80s dance classics and more!
On the ground floor we have Queen of Hoxton resident and BBC radio DJ Rowena Alice - DJ playing a mixture of party music to get your feet moving, as well as some dance classics and the usual party bangers you can always expect from Queen of Hoxton.
Felix Le Freak will be bringing her own debauchery to our new basement room 2, alongside friends you can expect vougeing, lip sync and a whole lot of cheesy tunes to get you dancing the night away!
