Preview : Art e Fect at Fire London with Del-30, Iglesias & Jack Swift

A night of thumping tech house comes to South London

The newly formed event concept by the DJ of the same name is set to grace the UK capital for their next exciting instalment on April 27th. Arriving at the SW8 postcode, Fire will be the location for eager ravers to two-step their night into the early hours. The series of events is designed to showcase the very best of underground talent in the scene, without the ever-rising London price tag. Curated by two friends with over 30 years of experience in the game and all the tools to create a night worth remembering.

With a strong line-up featuring the likes of London based Iglesias, the tech house on the night will be pumping through Fire’s speakers. Iglesias is known as one of the Top 100 bestselling tech house artists of our time. With releases on labels such as Sola, Repopulate Mars, VIVa and Solid Grooves RAW it’s a statement booking for the night.

Next up on the billing is mix magician Jack Swift. His sets are a frenzied affair of cutting and chopping, underpinned by an upbeat tempo and flawless blending. This renowned style has landed him on some of the world’s biggest stages, including Studio 338 & Amnesia Ibiza for London powerhouse ABODE, along with yearly stints at Hideout Festival Croatia. Expect the unexpected when he takes to the booth on April 27th.

Kreature aka Ashley Burgoyne has come a long way since his time as a bedroom DJ – having already toured Europe, Australia and South Africa by the age of 18 and having featured on labels such as VIVa & Resonance. The experience garnered over the last 15 years has seen Kreature’s sound mature, with his 2018 EP ‘Wacomin’ on Underground Audio being a prime example. A quality booking that will add a more balanced sound to the night.

Completing the bill is fast rising star Del-30, who’s meteoric upward trajectory into the underground world has seen his name plastered around the UK and further afield, along with releases on Toolroom, Solä and Under No Illusion. Support on the night will complement the headline slots on offer, with the likes of DJ S, K Mack, Andy Christo & Marlon Sadler, while room 2 hosts Amor with Sarzlea, Krystal and residents.

After hosting a successful event at London’s underground hotspot; The Steel Yard which saw another hefty lineup including Pirupa, Josh Butler and Jansons, Art e Fect has shown real intent to build on this with a subsequent stacked lineup and venue to match. Fire London is known for hosting some of the bouncier events in the city – with the likes of VIVa Warriors and Audiowhore, it seems fitting that this energetic line-up will grace the South London venue. The powerful Funktion-One sound system will be blasting out electronic rhythms to like-minded ravers across multiple rooms until the sun rises.
