Dave Swindells is, simply, one of the most respected photojournalists in London’s nightlife industry. His iconic photographs which chart the very earliest days of clubbing and rave culture are part of the Saatchi Gallery exhibition, Sweet Harmony Rave I Today, which runs until 14 September.
After huge demand from those who missed it in April, Dave has agreed to showcase his incredible work and presentation again at Republic.
The legendary photographer – who took the very first reportage of rave – presents classic and unseen images from warehouse parties, superclubs and gone-but-not-forgotten club nights from the 1980s-2000s, and asks: how did London get to be the capital of the clubbing world?
Frank Tope will DJ’ing until midnight.
From teenage acid house raving to hosting Brixton’s legendary Rooty parties with Basement Jaxx and Tayo, Frank Tope has danced and DJ’d his way through four decades of British house music. Drawing upon a record collection of gargantuan proportions, mixing jacking house with disco classics, old school M25 raving anthems with a sprinkling of oddball Balearic secret weapons, Frank always makes the girls dance and gets bearded Discogs warriors reaching for Shazam.
