A mix series, in partnership with Dance Tunnel, with some sets from our favourite DJs, recorded live from the East London basement. For more in the series, visit the archive.

In May, Rush Hour boss Antal stepped up for our second Infusions party at Dance Tunnel. With Brazil at its foundation, he stuck to the brief, taking us on a journey through space and time, for an all-night session that combined 90s South African pop collided with italo, soulful house with afrobeat. It made us appreciate that rare skill of weaving the music of different genres, eras and countries together in such a seamless way without losing momentum (*tip of the hat to Young Marco, Hunee, John Gomez and the Sex Tags brothers). This was our kind of DJing: uncompromising fun, but with a sincere dedication and respect for the music that’s passing through the mixer. When Dance Tunnel closes its doors for the last time next month, it’s sets like this that will endure long in the memory, as we sweated it out in that steamy basement, surrounded by loose limbs and smiling faces.

Our next Infusions party is 13th August with Mehmet Aslan and Jonny Rock taking us to Turkey. Catch Antal & Palms Trax at Phonox (29th July) and for a Rush hour label night (14th October).
