Purveyors of the finest threads, kicks and….parties, Donuts are celebrating their 6th birthday in serious style.

They’ve booked only the coolest, freshest talent that is Funkinevil. This collaboration between Kyle MF Hall and FunkinEven is far from just a quick trend, nay its a 100% egyptian cotton 400 thread count kinda thing. Their productions instantly igniting a dancefloor into a working sweat box. Support comes from ‘label of the moment’ Happy Skull bosses The Kelly Twins and Donuts’s very own Tom D.

Donuts know that setting is as integral to a party as the music itself; previously using the Old Crown Court and former Grand Entance of Colston Hall (now part of Simple Things Festival), they are no strangers to infusing adventure into the boogie. Six years is a big birthday so they’re getting rather decadent, setting up soirée at the newly reopened Empire Theatre. A former gay club and red-velveted playground of hedonism,  it’s an opulent labyrinth perfect for losing oneself and stumbling upon an exuberant dancefloor curated by some of dance music’s most exciting current producers. Needless to say, this is going to be a unmissable affair.


Revered music makers in their own right, brought together through admiration of each other’s work and a mutual love of barbecued chicken. Under this electrifying collaboration, Kyle Hall and FunkinEven blend together to create a raw funk-techno sound that shocks you into a frenzy. Witnessed DJing together only a handful of times, their b2b set promises to be unexpected and exhilarating. Check out their recent Touching Bass feature with Noisey, for a little more info.

The Kelly Twins

Few DJs earn a place in the spotlight when only spinning and not producing records. When they do, you can be assured this is due to sheer talent accompanied by a seriously impressive music-collection. These are ingredients the Kelly Twins have in abundance and now lend to running their brilliant label, Happy Skull (whose most recent release features a remix from FunkinEven).  Donuts birthday regulars will know these boys can bring the party.

Tom D

Donuts’ very own vinyl maestro likes his music with soul and knows exactly how to start a dancefloor that lasts well into the early hours. Check out his Bristol Spotlight with us here.
