Kowton, Baunz, Ghostpoet, Brassica and Jet Letts brought the biggest crowd yet to The Shoreditch Butchery for last night’s bare busy mix night.

Sweaty, sticky, dutty and damn fun, XOYO’s Shoreditch Butchery hit capacity last night as a heavy duty crew of early weekend revellers shuffled in on the i-D Mix night. Dropping a selection of expertly selected future classics and lesser known reworks, Jet Letts pressed play on proceedings and attracted a steady flow of bar flies, then came the Moda Black signed Baunz whose deep mix of schizophrenic rhythms stepped the pace up whilst mate and label boss Andy George watched on, pretty pleased with his talent. Up next was a serious looking Ghostpoet, who took to the decks with intent, throwing down a nostalgic blend of music that brought feet to the dancefloor and raised arms skyward. Armed with nothing but an industrial sized carton of apple juice and a small desk lamp, watching the Mercury award winning songwriter work his magic on deck was as exciting as witnessing him single handily command a stage and mic. Wearing a cuter than cute t-shirt, decorated with two small furry kittens, the bearded DJ up next was Brassica, playing a progressive set that made movements slow to suit his ambient tones. And finally, lulled into a comfortable sense of late night slumber, Kowton arrived to drop a sketchy load of intelligently laced, dubstep blended techno. Before we knew it, it was over, Friday morning had started and the sixth i-D Mix night switched the lights off on another successful few hours of unbridled fun fuelled entirely by good music.
Listen in to what we all danced to here.
