Halbak8d

We all love birthdays as it’s time for party and presents and we can’t ask for a better combo than our beloved 8th birthday of Half Baked. What a journey. This amazing brand has made its name across the world bringing unique vibe event after event making people smile for weeks afterwards. It is such a trustworthy name that not many has in a scene, when friends invite you to come to one of their events, you know it’s going to be a memorable one. 

 

They are about to make a huge stamp in their journey by blowing away all their fan expectations. The line up speaks for itself to truly show what is this party is about since 2009 keeping it fresh at the same time. Action will take place on 25th November in yet mysterious 3 rooms east London venue, E1. Making you excited there?

Still keeping some names and special guests undercover, but what we know already is beyond exciting! You won’t see such names on the same bill around that’s for sure! Half Baked just making sure to have the party to top top level adding this guy – John Dimas. He does not need much of introduction as being one of the most wanted underground artists coming down to celebrate the birthday straight from having a massive blast this summer with Circoloco family in DC10 and all the best clubs around the globe.  

Second name that got our attention is Francesco Del Garda. Absolute weapon from Italy that has everything under his belt to control the dancefloor to the fullest! His mixes which require a massive bag of skills and we are sure it will leave you impressed and wanting for more!

Coming next is Objekt. This guy does not put himself in sort of frame really. I think he describes himself best “adventures in machine music build to make subs rattle ad feet wiggle; a convoluted mess of elektrology and teknology, 3-step, bass-core, post windmill, proto-minimal wankstep, gondola, shithouse, acid wonk, ambient gabber, no more, no less.” That’s kinda it to know what to expect from this lad. 

 

 

One name that always make an appearance is Perlon. Such a big love we have for it and in charge of that this time we have Sammy Dee rocking the decks. He made his name across the clubbing scene by having his own strong approach and eclectic taste in music and creating this magical experience that Half Baked is famous for. Then we have this French killer combo back - Hold Youth (Seuil b2b Le Loup) alongside exciting member of Toi Toi Musik collective – Lamache and as expected long term Half Baked soldier – Robin Ordell Aka Pap Inc getting your feet going for hours with those crazy French influenced house cuts. 

What a birthday without an appearance of a long time Half Baked’s friend Mike Shannon? He is added to the bill too to make the night extra spicy. To add cherry on a cake we have b2b of Harry McCanna and Jake Hodkinson joining birthday again as well as OddMann to complete the event to the fullest. Lastly, recent hot name Lamache and a familiar face, Georgia Girl making her first Half Baked debut.
