We’re excited to announce that Sofia Kuster will join us as a guest behind the turntables for this party. A beautiful, airy location that includes a custom-built audiophile sound system and canal vistas, Giant Steps is located at Swan Wharf, 60 Dace Road E3 2NQ, with Hackney Wick overground nearby.

We had lots of fun at our last party at GS and hope you’ll join us again!

Reservations/tickets can be purchased here.

The venue will prepare a vegetarian menu for the evening.

Early arrival is recommended for more music, more dancing, more food, more socialising and more fun :) The mix of the last party is available on our mixcloud page!

Justin Strauss, Worldwide FM

I'm hosting a Worldwide FM show with NYC DJ/production legend and feet-on-the-ground sweetheart Justin Strauss tomorrow 1:00-3:00pm GMT.

On the chitchat menu: the Mudd Club, the Ritz, Area, friendships with Ivan Baker / François Kevorkian / Larry Levan / Keith Haring, the dark days and nights of the mid/late 1980s and 1990s, the club kids era of Tunnel and Limelight, and staying true to one's musical and social values in a hectically-commercial world.

On the music menu: 40 years of recordings that caused a stir in NYC.

Tune in live at Worldwide FM and catch up at wrldwd.fm/tlawrence2 x

Upcoming Events, April - July

I started to DJ regularly at the first All Our Friends party in January 2018. As well as initiate a new party, I wanted to express something musically. It's turned into a compelling, challenging and joyous experience, and I’m now getting quite a few invitations to play out, which is surreal as well as humbling. Here's info on upcoming events, inc. some talks mixed in with the parties, beginning with Soul Stew in Norwich this weekend--can't wait!
