Solo Danza release Spring residency at London’s newest licensed music venue The Steelyard.

Much loved and clued-up underground promotion Solo Danza is delighted to be moving into a new, permanent monthly home. Lining up for a sizzling series of spring events at London’s brand new and game changing The Steelyard across the next three months are Maayan Nidam, Nastia, Margaret Dygas, Tobi Neumann, Guti, Julien Perez, Ion Ludwig and assured resident Dennis Christopher.

The Steelyard is an 800 capacity underground arch venue in the Cannon Street area that makes use of three adjoined arches and has one impressive main room. Huge speakers front, middle and back ensure high quality sound permeates your every sense, and subtle lighting lends the whole room a cathedral like elegance that is sure to make for some near religious experiences on the dance floor.

An old industrial building that’s been beautifully converted, The Steelyard has plenty of original features that are officially listed for their historical importance, and all in all it makes for a refreshing addition to the capital’s scene. On top of that, it fits in perfectly with Solo Danza’s tradition of partying under railway arches, as they have done before at Crucifix and Cable, so this is sure to be an invigorating new experience for one and all.

Solo Danza have never chased the big bucks or the hyped-up, disposable overnight hero of the day. Instead, they have kept their musical policy focused on quality and longevity. Roaming between tech and minimal, guests like tINI, Loco Dice, Robert Dietz, Tobi Neumann, Martin Buttrich, Yaya, Cassy and more have all played packed out events before, and co-promoter and resident Dennis Christopher’s sets always add a bow on top of the cake as they are so considered and on point.

So, the scene is set for the start of something fresh and exciting, with the first opening event being on Saturday March 7th. Headlining is heady minimal producer and Propaganda label boss Nastia, with Perlon regulars and woozy house specialists Maayan Nidam and Vera also lining up for a night of hypnotic excellence.

April 4th is an Easter Bank Holiday Special with Ostgut Ton’s definitive techno talent Margaret Dygas playing alongside a venerated veteran in Cocoon’s Tobi Neumann. Joining them are residents Dennis Christopher and Leroy Roberts.

In to May and on the 2nd, Solo Danza present an exciting UK premier in the form of a People Like Us party. A lifestyle brand, clothing line and event series that is huge in Berlin and is an off shoot of Desolat, People Like Us have a strong visual and musical identity that will offer something quite different tonight. Focussed on stripped back, expertly designed tech house with headline act and Crosstown man Guti being joined by exopert producer and Fathers & Sons label boss Julian Perez, also playing is Ion Ludwig, a German known for his intricate minimal soundscapes.
