Our weekender in November headlined by M.A.N.D.Y and DJ W!LD at Egg LDN was an absolute blast. Now we've finally recovered, we've decided to do it all over again in February — and the line-up is ridiculous!
We're flying in New Jersey house legend Kerri Chandler to play an extended set on the Egg Terrace on Friday 20th February (GET TICKETS!) before Detroit's cold-as-ice maverick Omar S tops the bill on Saturday 21st February (GET TICKETS!).
Kerri's Madtech proteges Voyeur are on board to provide him support before the label boss takes over the booth for several hours on end, while Venezuela's Crosstown Rebels DJ duo Fur Coat headline the downstairs room, with its newly decked-out Flipside system to match the one upstairs, alongside Barber and Better Looking Half.
On Saturday we bring a touch of Motor City class to London when wildly revered FXHE boss Omar S will be flanked by Luke Hess. A name that's cropped up on the label as well as Carl Craig's Planet E imprint, he'll bring a dark but debonair selection of techno and deep house to a room expertly warmed up by office favourite Sven Weisemann. A master of mood and tone, the Mojuba man has committed lush tunes to labels like Liebe*Detail and Delsin but it's as a DJ he's most impressive and we're proud to welcome him for his DJ Mag Sessions debut.
Meanwhile, Geordieland's Jaunt boys Blackhall & Bookless close the weekend with a slamming, early hours techno set, plus there'll be support on the night from Egg LDN's much-loved residents The Willers Brothers.
With two more dates at Easter and a summer party still to announce, DJ Mag Sessions has taken to its new home like a duck to water, pushing its beak out further to bring the most wanted names to a top venue within the UK's most competitive clubbing city.
While DJ Mag will be required to attend both nights (it's a hard job, someone has to do it), punters with less stamina have the freedom to choose whichever date they like the look of most — old skool Jersey master vs illustrious Detroit magician — while hardcore ravers can get a ticket for the whole weekend for £30. Tickets are selling fast so get in quick!
