It’s with pleasure that MEOKO announce the arrival of what promises to be another great series of events into our booming London scene. Rework are taking over Dukes House in East London, putting its bespoke Function system through its paces…
With their sights firmly set on high quality output, Rework’s policy of underground house and techno see them fly Arpiar’s Kozo into town for their first event on 15th March. Kozo’s stock has flourished with the strength of the sounds coming from Romania over the last few years. A key player in the Bucharest scene, Kozo has also had success from his own Understand imprint which he has been running with Praslea.
MEOKO favourite Rico Casazza plays alongside Kozo, representing his deep and minimalistic take on electronic music. A fusion of futuristic funk, Rico’s sound is best described as ‘music from Mars’. Check out his recent interview we did with Rico below which also includes a free track download…

Saturday 16th will see Michael Mayer take to the booth in Room 1, bringing his uber-deep, 'Mantasy' inspired game to the main arena. The Kompakt boss will play an extended set alongside esteemed resident Craig Richards and Liverpudlian John Heckle, who's known for his fast paced, 3-deck approach to deep, pumping house.

Berghain mainstay Ben Klock is also set to appear, where he'll be transforming Room 2 into a cavern of well-wrought techno alongside veteran Dutch pioneer Steve Rachmad and Terry Francis. Room 3 is hosted by Futureboogie with Leeds grown DJs PBR Streetgang, Bristolian duo Waifs & Strays and the Futureboogie guys doing what they do best - supplying the party jams, cosmic soul and upfront disco-funk. Yet again, a night at fabric not to be missed.

If one of your mates suggested you go out for a game of bingo on a Saturday night, I would imagine your head would be filled with images of a slightly odd smelling bingo hall filled with an abundance of older women resembling the likes of your Auntie Dot or Nanny Pat. This is most likely not the type of bingo your mate is referring to. The Bingo world has been turned upside down by the likes of a more unusual version of game - one that's loud, emotional and certainly NOT one you should take your Granny to.

Rebel Bingo has become a global revolution creating bingo mayhem across the globe in North America, Spain, Portugal, Madrid and London.

Now this is no ordinary bingo. At Rebel Bingo scantily clad ball girls take to the stage shouting more unusual bingo calls than the likes of '32 buckle my shoe' which you may normally expect to hear (if you have ever been lucky enough to have attended with your Nan.) Rebel bingo is more of a game show with a DJ and dancing. If you're able to stay sober enough to actually score a 'line' or 'full house' they have some slightly unnecessary but rather cool prizes up for grabs - who wouldn't want to win a light up umbrella or giant disco ball?
If you fancy for a break from your usual Saturday night activity and are up for a crazy, loud and somewhat emotional evening then I recommend giving Rebel Bingo a go - just make sure you remember to leave your Gran at home.
Rebel Bingo is next at Scala London 15th & 16th March however this event is now sold out. Tickets are still available for any Bristolians at the Thekla on 21st February, 7:30pm from £4 available at www.rebelbingo.com
