A live PA by 2020 Soundsystem followed by resident Craig Richards paved the way nicely for Tanzmann, who took to the desk just after 5am. Despite the late hour the crowds had barely dissipated and there was little space for maneuvering, however the Circo Loco henchman played a relentless, pounding set that made matters like elbow room slip into the background. Tracks old and new were linked together by thumping rhythms and the odd deep house moment.

Green Velvet’s ‘La La Land’ was perfectly apt as by 8am (the advertised finished time) the party was still going strong, finally ending shortly before 9. Tanzmann made his name when he founded recording label Moon Harbour. The label celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, and a double CD compilation featuring mixes and unreleased tracks from the roster’s main artists, which include Luna City Express, Martinez and Krüger & Manowski, is set for release on December 6th.

Have a listen to Tanzmann’s currently unreleased ‘Sling Shot’, exclusively here. Matthias Tanzmann’s next London date is on New Year’s Day for Circo Loco’s New Year’s party with DJ Sneak and Kerri Chandler.
