Just a few short weeks until our summertime #DirtyDiscoJamm party upstairs at The Peacock, NG1 on Saturday 12th July.

We’ll be spinning a carefully picked selection of tunes you know (and a few you don’t) to get you bang in the mood for the summer. Usual time – 8:30pm til 11:30pm-ish. It’ll cost you just £2.50 on the door.

Plus it’s the night before the World Cup final if you fancy a break from the footy.We also need a favour too: tell us what you think of our nights in a mini-survey we’ve done. It’ll only take a few minutes to do and we’ll be the only ones who’ll see what you say. Ta very much.

Oh yeah, those little things that have got us excited lately. An ace video biog of AfroElectroFunk maestro, William Onyeabor, a Despacio club night inspired mix on Soundcloud, and the new AfterDark compilation landing soon.

What a #VinylJamm: more please…
