On Saturday night we headed down to one of our favourite London venues, XOYO, to check out their latest residency, Busy P. The club was packed to the rafters, down to the fact that Boys Noize were supporting and because the CONCRETE MUSIC crew were taking over room two. We arrived after midnight and found the party in full swing with Boys Noize at the decks downstairs where we spent a while soaking up the sounds and atmosphere of the Berlin duo’s eclectic set, featuring hefty electro and techno tunes. But it was upstairs in Room 2 where we spent most of the night with the Concrete Music DJs hammering our some serious house magic.
This is the great thing about XOYO, and it’s what we love about the club and its residency series… the fact that you can turn up with the intention of seeing the headliner, but actually finding yourself enjoying the support DJs just as much, if not more. It goes to show that the warm up and support acts of any night are just as important as the main act in keeping clubbers happy. XOYO’s ability to curate nights that suit varied tastes is one of their unique abilities in the London club scene – one of our favourite residencies that echoed this crossing of cultures was the combination of The 2 Bears and one of London’s most exciting and out there gay nights, Sink The Pink. We had a whale of a time.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – the XOYO residency series is such an innovative and exciting concept that appeals to the wide spectrum of London’s clubbers. Other clubs – take note.
XOYO have just announced their NYE line up – Bondax, Chris Lorenzo and Darius with more acts to be confirmed – tickets here.
You can also catch Busy P residency series until mid-December 2015.
