Original deep house collective DiY turn 20 this year, and kick off a year of celebrations with a party at The Brickhouse on Brick Lane. Formed in Nottingham in 1989, DiY Soundsystem have spent the last two decades hosting parties in clubs, warehouses and fields all over Britain and beyond.
Part of the first wave of British house evangelists, DiY’s legendary free parties captured the unique spirit of the times often stretching out for days. Since then their brand of deep, groove-locked house has taken them everywhere from Space in Ibiza to Castlemorton Common, where they played a key role in the notorious week-long, 40,000 strong free festival.
Along the way they went from just playing to making records and found time to release a string of classic tracks on labels such as Warp Records, and their own DiY Discs, Strictly4Groovers and DiY Diversions labels. Expect to hear plenty of these on the night, alongside fresh material scheduled for release in the New Year.
The Brickhouse’s Funktion 1 sound system and industrial setting make it the perfect venue to celebrate 20 years of raucous parties and underground house music, with the full DiY crew (Simon DK, Digs & Woosh and Jack) providing the soundtrack.
