As a truly memorable 2016 winds down, we are looking back on those who have excelled this calendar year.
When talking about the club scene in the UK, especially in London, you can safely say it has been a turbulent year: we’ve seen the appointment of the night Czar, the closure of Fabric and months later the news that the super-club is about to re-open.
It is difficult to predict what the state of clubbing will be this time next year; however, if we all follow the ethos of Feelings, a house and disco club night predominantly based in London, then there is hope!
Feelings established in 2014 but, we feel, it’s 2016 which really saw the night blossom to become one of London’s premier underground nights.
The ethos is simple: 20th Century dance music for 21st century people. You can expect resident DJs to dig into their collection supplying you with the best feel good music from the 60s onwards.
Nonetheless, it is not just its music which encapsulates the 20th century ethos. There is a sense of freedom and a somewhat balearic vibe amongst party goers at Feeling. The night manages to take you back to the hedonistic days of the late eighties/early nineties; however, it is the music and vibe of the people instilling the pleasure.
Feelings‘ roster of DJs vary from residents Karl Karlson & Brian Summers, to the house-centric duo of The Menendez Brothers & the eclectic Kasra V.
Speaking of the former, we’ve also seen the birth of the Feelings label, with first release being Kasra V’s The Window EP.
With the addition of dates in Oxford, Leeds & Liverpool in 2016, it is great to see a strong London club night move its brand across the U.K.
As the need for 20th century dance music ethos and culture grows stronger, we believe the Feelings brand can spearhead a new era of clubbing in 2017.
