Innervisions are not new to unusual locations – they have thrown parties in all sorts of unexpected settings, from a castle in Tuscany to a Catalan military prison. But about their London show, label founders Dixon and Âme said:

It was the largest house music night ever put on within our walls, with around five hours of house and techno played across the course of the evening. The giant screen cube allowed the artists to deliver a full audiovisual experience to the audience.

The evening started with long-time Innervisions signee Marcus Worgull taking to the decks first, then the Croatian visual artist Nina Kurtela performed a contemporary dance piece.

Dixon and Âme were of course booked in for the headline slots. One half of Âme, Frank Wiedemann, performed a live set alongside Gudrun Gut and Matthew Herbert, while the other half, Kristian Beyer, closed the night with a b2b set with Dixon.
