We are proud to present our brand new monthly event Throwback a new monthly day party concept taking you back to an era when music & raving was fun!
Remember SW1, Vauxhall Arches, Maximus, Iceni, Roseberys, Roller Express, Colosseum, all-dayers in the park, house party’s, dancing with members of the other sex to slow jamz in a club?
Well Throwback is taking you back to that magical time on the last Sunday of the month! Hosted by residents USM Media’s own DJ Longers (formally of G-Ents) & The Beat 103.6’s Shuges (former member of 90% Sound) plus legendary guest DJ’s every month coupled with a screening of a classic movie from this golden era of music, movies and London clubbing.
Kicking off on Sunday Oct 30th Throwback will be spinning only the very best 80’s & 90’s Hip Hop; RnB & Dancehall anthems; Ol’ Skool UKG and Jungle classics with a touch of Slow Jamz! This month’s guest DJ tearing up the decks is Mi Soul Radio’s own afternoon morning show host, George Kay formally of Choice FM!
The first movie we are screening for our first event is the director’s cut of the classic 90’s Hip Hop comedy Friday directed by F. Gary Gray in his directorial debut. Starring the legendary Ice Cube, who co-wrote the film with DJ Pooh and Chris Tucker in his first starring role alongside Nia Long, Bernie Mac, John Witherspoon, Regina King & more. The comedy details a hectic Friday in the lives of unemployed Craig Jones (Cube) and Smokey (Tucker), who must pay a local LA drug dealer $200 by 10:00 p.m. that night or else!
