Honey Soundsystem is a collective of discaires, musicians, performers and artists. ''We bond over our shared love of timeless sound, iconic imagery, the complete look, indulgent behaviour, and most of all, attractive men.''

On a personal note we were keen to have them over to play Hung Up! in part to thank them for their ''Optimo Is Dead. Long Live Optimo'' tribute night which took place in San Francisco on the same night as the last ever weekly Optimo at The Sub Club in Glasgow!

Forming in January 2006, Honey started turning heads with their cunning ad campaigns, decadent themes, private warehouse parties and of-course their floor stomping DJ sets. They have hosted DJ's from around the world, including Todd Terje, Horse Meat Disco, Stefan Goldmann, Solar, Hercules & Love Affair, Discodromo, Cosmo Vitelli, DJ Spun, Eric Duncan, DJ Kaos, Kim Ann Foxman, Neon Leon, and Trocodero Transfer legend Steve Fabus.

In 2009 The crew became instrumental in the release of never before heard music from San Francisco producer Patrick Cowley. The release of the Catholic record on Macro Records was followed by a month long exhibition the crew produced on the life and times of Cowley. In 2010 Honey released a full length compilation of like-minded producers from around the globe. Brotherhood came in at number two on JUNOs chart in it's first month of release (just behind Tiesto - ha!).

Individually, crew members have been changing the landscape of music with record labels (Dark Entries, MR.INTL), live sets (Robot Hustle's all analog project Cryo-cell), appearences in New York, London, Berlin, and at their notorious weekly Sunday party at the Holy Cow in "the most sexually abrasive & peculiar district in town"

Get down.

Next week:


26th - JD Twitch & JG Wilkes Boxing Night Barnstorm!


SHAKE IT UP!
