UK Garage Saturdays At Far Rockaway Shoreditch every Saturday. I saw the promo material for this weekly event all over the internet. This event has had guest DJs, MCs & performances from the likes of DJ Spoony, Donaeo, MC Versatile, Bushkin, Luck& Neat to name but a few.
Although I am a R&B, Hip-Hop, Trap & Bashment DJ, I was heavily into the UK Garage scene, many of the DJs, MCs and Artists I booked for some of my Club Nights (Bubblicious, Blushed & Etiquette) and I played along side many of them on Pirate Radio Stations like Y2K 90.6Fm and Dejavu 92.4Fm. So this event appealed to me, when I eventually got the hook up (free Guest List) I was excited not only because I like the scene but also because I have never sampled Shoreditch’s night life for some strange reason. I was initially told that Far Rockaway was like a pub, as I am not a fan of pubs was initially on a bit of a downer.
Anyway it’s Saturday night and I arrive outside the Far Rockaway club, all around me the streets are buzzing I feel like I am in the West End or Camden. After talking with the Bouncers who I found rather polite I meet up with my contact and we enter the club.Far from the venue being like a pub it was a cool stylish bar, well lit, clean toilets and spacious. I liked the Retro Ghetto Blasters that decorated the DJ Booth and the Skateboards that decorate the ceiling. Check out the venue here
The atmosphere was lively and the vibe felt good. I must admit the music (DJ and Host) was on point, be prepared to hear some UKG Classics. The crowed was a mixture of UKG Connoisseur (Old School Ravers ) a few tourists and people that frequent the Shoreditch area. Overall I had a decent night I will definitely go back, especially on key dates like Valentines, Bank Holidays, NYE and for Guest DJs/Live Performances.
