Further to the recent opening of the world's first ecologically friendly nightclub, we are very excited to be bringing the Friday Funtkon to Surya Club in less than 3 weeks time! You can expect a varied blend of breaks, house and eco-pop with FREE ENTRY all night long.

Hosted by ourselves, the101connection we welcome our two special guests for the evening:

Richie Balboa (NSB Radio/Diverted Traffic/Social)

“Richie Balboa’s skills at warmup, peak time and closing sets have lead to gigs at Global Gathering, Raindance, Breakspoll After Party, Drop Beats Not Bombs and more recently abroad at Kazantip Beach Festival in Ukraine alongside the likes of The Freestylers, Atomic Hooligan and Tayo. He describes his DJ style as a breaks, funk and house mashup and when not playing records he finds time to manage NSB Radio to the Breakspoll best radio station award , Diverted Traffic to 2 breakthrough label nominations and runs his night Social booking the likes of The Utah Saints, Superstyle Deluxe and Ali B.”

Benchmark (Social)

"Musically minded Benchmark is not shy to makes waves on the dancefloor. He has spent three years spinning under the SINERGY avatar alongside Richie Balboa. Benchmark has played at some of the London's best club nights including Supatronix, Nuskoolbreaks and the Drop off with the likes of Atomic Hooligan, Diverted, Soul of Man and BLIM. An understated Social talent who always get's the party started with an ever eclectic selection of beats"

As a extra bonus, for many of us it's payday so come celebrate this non biological, eco-tastic night with us......

Indeed - thanks for playing guys. Surya has great potential to be one of those intimate venues that could properly go off, its obviously still early days but its certainly an original concept, a very plush venue with a great sound system.

Definately worth checking out...

Glad you liked it guys. Yeah Al, venues really intimate; only gonna be around 250 tickets for each night, so you'll get some really good experiences down there with some really good DJs. I wanna say who I’ve got lined up hosting their own parties, but I’m not gonna ;)

Press release for launch party will be out by Wednesday, I’ll whack it up somewhere for you all to check out. Get the 20th of September in your diaries please peeps! Don’t forget, if you are somehow clever enough to prove that you came by public transport, or walked to the club, you can get in for free. If it’s not half full up with you lot, I’ll think something’s wrong ;)
