Eli (aka Bamboozle), one half of the duo Soul Clap will be throwing down a manic set of dance 45’s, and his craft is truly a spectacle to behold. Baby Prince (one half of Wolf + Lamb) is also sure to mesmerize you with some deep grooves.
Idris Elba, yes, that Idris Elba better known as Stringer Bell from The Wire, is launching his own record label and celebrating by DJing a set at Output on Friday night, alongside Kenny Dope. We guarantee Idris’s set will be at least ten times better than anything DJ Paris Hilton would throw down.
