Joy Orbison is set to launch a new party in London.
A couple of months on from sharing a new track, ‘red velve7,’ the DJ and producer has revealed details of Just For You. Launching on Thursday, 20th January, the monthly party will take place at Below Stone Nest, a new bar situated in the basement of performance space Stone Nest on Shaftesbury Avenue, Soho. Entry is free.
Joy Orbison – real name Peter O’Grady – shared the news via social media. “I’ve wanted to have my own party in London for years now,” he said. “When I was growing up, club life felt more supportive of new music and producers, so now seems like an important time for more spaces like that to exist.”
“[There will be an emphasis on] forward thinking music with a mixture of new and established names,” he added. “The line ups will stay secret until you get down to the venue, then once inside there’ll be unique artwork designed by Emma Toma with all the info.”
