Come join us at Styx to celebrate/mourn the end of summer!
Full line up!
Hailing from Forest Hill, the Ghanaian-British artist had his first solo release on Theo Parrish’s label, Sound Signature and followed shortly after with release on Gilles Peterson's worldwide label.
An emerging talent from Gilles Peterson's future bubblers. A rising star that has numerous outstanding solo records out throughout the past twenty four months. Certainly an outstanding live act we are very much looking forward to hearing!
Returning in 2017 with a new sound after taking time to reflect and channel their inspiration, their Orissa EP marks their self liberation and a start of a run of releases which has seen Wayward solidify their burgeoning reputation as producers and DJ’s.
The last 12 months has seen the duo consisting of Louis Greenwood and Lawrence Hayes release a trio of EP’s on Silver Bear Recordings which continues to gather momentum with their latest Good Afternoon Mr Magpie EP epitomising their knack for bridging the gap between the dancefloor and the more soulful side of electronic music
Their most recent Good Afternoon Mr Magpie EP was premiered in Mixmag and named in their Big Tunes feature for April. Ample support across radio waves on BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, KCRW, Beats In Space and Rinse FM all followed with the duo guesting on the latter frequently.
This London based DJ and Producer released a number of tunes before starting his own label Woop Records. He combines house, jazz, hip hop, Afro-Latin percussion, and samples of obscure Brazilian, Cuban and Colombian records creating unique sounds.
DJs Felix, Ollie Drummond and Marco teamed together to run the night Marbles. Alongside their night they also regularly DJ under the moniker of Marbles.
Everybody Loves To Boogie
Everybody Loves To Boogie will be bringing Delonte Rivers down to Styx to take the reins for the full 90 minutes and showcase exactly what they're about.
Delonte Rivers, the brand new alias of Everybody Loves To Boogie's DJ Fortay. After spending a year in sunny Melbourne developing his new sound and persona, he's back home in London town to get dance floors shaking again. Focusing on Afro and Latin influences, Delonte fuses tropical favours of Afro, House, Disco, Highlife, Funky and more to get those hips swinging. With his recent release on XVI Records, Midnight Congas and lots more in the pipeline, keep watch and get ready to get down!

They run regular parties in south London and come off the back of two E.P releases which recieved support from the likes of Toshio Mastura, Bradley Zero and Detroit Swindle.
Dulcet Tones attempt to dismantle the boundary between set and immersion. With bookings from dance musics more eccentric selectors, such as Bjorn Torks, the Aperion Crew and the newly formed Siren, the Dulcet Tones residents share with them their spirit of new discovery on the dance-floor. Footballs coming home.
Babalonia boss ('underground dancefloor sounds from around the world'), producer and resident DJ for the Institute of Arts and Ideas, Alex has recently collaborated with UCL neuroscientists on a mix recreating sleep cycles.

* Where your money goes?*
The event is in aid of the thousands of refugees stuck in Greece. We are supporting One Happy Family. This particular not-for-profit organisation is based around a community centre on Lesvos, that is run WITH the people, not for them. It is a safe space that involves refugees in community building activities according to their skills and talents. The creative activities there help to decompress the horrors of daily life in Camp Moria that people have to face. Lesvos has been become a crossway point for people fleeing war and crises. With the severe human rights situation in Turkey, and the EU hindering refuge into mainland Europe, refugees become stuck in this in-between point with no infrastructure or amenities to call their own.
Team Bananas Supper Club
Team Bananas Supper Club runs charity dinners. Guests get to enjoy delicious food, whilst learning about the refugee crisis and supporting a great cause. Team Bananas Supper Club was formed by a group of friends in 2017. Some of us have spent time over the last 2 years volunteering in Greece with different organisations working with refugees. Primarily, Team Bananas. Team Bananas Supper club is a way of us being able to continue our work from home in London, managing to fundraise and raise awareness for organisations still working on the ground in Greece.
