Audio-visual party poppers, Digital City return to the all new T Bar with our unique brand of swanked-up warehouse revelry. And boy, do we return with a treat. When a young producer by the name of Jon Hopkins first played for us, he commuted from his mum’s house in the countryside. This time he returns from Sydney where he’s been playing in the Opera House in a one-off band with Brian Eno and Underworld.
Support comes from Digital City’s resident DJs, BarryDark, Tentonatom and Remote fusing all that is electronic from afro to electro. Flanked by a matrix of projection screens, the visual quality is represented by Big Chill resident VJ, Dr Mo and Parallax. This is a rare (legal) Digital City foray into East London, having started life in the bedraggled penthouse of an industrial tower block overlooking Canary Wharf many moons (and spangled dawns) ago.
