Zoo Project Secret Warehouse Party
Zoo Project delivers an unequivocally powerful evening of pulsating clannish house music…
As the opening parties take-shape on the magical island of Ibiza, Zoo Project is the musical phenomenon on the cusp of most party revellers’ tongues…
Located in an ‘abandoned zoo’, more commonly known as ‘Gala Night’, and positioned at the heart of the Island, the distinctiveness of Zoo Project’s origins have provided the Ibiza party calendar with an unrivalled fixture for a Saturday afternoon.
With tickets to their opening party on Saturday 28th May some of the most eagerly sought after, and on a weekend that also saw We Love Space Sundays welcoming-in their new summer season, Zoo Project’s Channel Zoo Label united with Southampton’s Junk Department promotions, to deliver some of that tribal hedonism to the streets of London…
Less than 24 hours after Zoo Project opened its gates for what will surely prove to be their most prolific season on the island since its naissance in 2008, Shoreditch’s Hewitt Street Car Park was blessed with a party to rival that of its Ibizan counterpart.
Desolat Label’s Hector was joined-by Zoo residents Gow, Nic & Kaleb, and Michael James, all of whom embraced the fervent capacity crowd as though they were at Gala Night itself, delivering an unequivocally powerful evening of pulsating clannish house music. Not only were the spinsters on top of their game, an inspirational percussionist stole the show with his relentless ability to maintain a continuous vivacious drone on his impressive collection of kettledrums.
More notable however, was the exquisite line-up afforded to Room 2; Zombie Soundsystem posed circa 500 revellers with a problematic choice of allegiance, encapsulating an exalted-calibre of music throughout the course of the night.
Zombie Soundsystem’s residents Shane Watcha, Raymundo Rodriguez, and Clint Lee, delivered a tight, emotive and absorbing sequence of deep tech house classics, inspiring an invariable and vibrant atmosphere to ensue long into the early-hours of Bank Holiday Monday morning.
So all that is left to say then, is if you thought that fancy dress parties were a thing of the past…think again! Guerilla Sounds recommends you invest in some animal print attire, and keep your ear to the ground as to the next such tribal event…Don’t be afraid to unleash the Zoo in you!

Weekend 42 – 14, 15, 16, 17 Oct….
This week’s round up has grown massively since the previous issue of “Weekend Round Up”, showing off some very amazing night in some of the hot spots of the underground club scene over Europe.
A few weeks back we had published an article about a massive weekend in London and once again, the capital is going to be pumping. Friday night will be the starter of things to come with Krafty Kuts headlining a breaks night and Dan Ghenacia and friends partying away in Hewitt Street Car Park.
But it’s Saturday night which is going to kill you and not just for the long hours of partying or the massive line ups. More for the fact that you’ll be completely spoilt for choice as not only will fabric be celebrating its birthday with a massive night, which seems more like a marathon, but there are also the infamous nights; “Wiggle” and “Shake It!”. And that’s without mentioning that Ivan Smagghe and Derrick Carter will also be gracing the London with their presence.
In fact we would be interested to know which one of these nights would tickle your fancy more….
