After our crazy NYE bash – one that made it’s place high up in our collection of good memories – Detour and M2M come together again to bring you yet another special night. This time, we’ll be throwing an Easter rave in a hidden gem in East London together with a special guest – Sebastian Albrecht.
Sebastian is a live act and producer based in Berlin. Fascinated by the young electronic music scene since the first Tresor compilation 1991, techno in all facettes became an important part of his life. After many releases on German and International labels (klangscheiben rec, sk yaris, sgustok, patchy rec to mention a few), and an upcoming release on London’s own Elusive Records, he’s also been busy running his own label Park Recordings and playing his live sets in cities like Paris, Montreal and Moscow. We’re proud to be hosting his London debut where we’ll have the opportunity to indulge in one of his live sets.
We also bring you Elusive Records label boss Slavaki, who’s been no less busy in the studio cooking up fresh beats and fine tuning those sounds that never fail to impress. Joining him will be M2M mastermind Pash and Detour’s own Murat Alibaba.
Venue information will be emailed to all ticket buyers before the event.

Slide’s first shindig of the summer sees a return to the terrace for the first time since 2011 of the legendary Greg Wilson, spinning for 3 hours, with support across the venue from Justin Robertson, Eskimo Twins and more.
Both DJ and producer, Greg Wilson was associated with the early 80’s electro scene in the UK. Two decades on, he found himself a dedicated global gathering as part of the emerging disco renaissance. Originally known for playing funk, soul, disco, and later jazz-funk records, in 1983 he was named North’s top DJ, with his nights at Wigan Pier and Manchester’s Legend voted the regions best by Blues & Soul readers. That year he became the first DJ to mix live on British TV, put together the first UK re-edit, and taught a young Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) how to scratch. In 1984 Wilson started producing tracks rather than playing them, debuting with ‘UK Electro’ for Street Sounds. In 1994 he re-visited his electro-funk past, compiling ‘Classic Electro Mastercuts’. As well as being a DJ / producer, Wilson has also written articles for magazines including Wax Poetics, Clash and Grand Slam.
The term legend is often banded about far too easily, but in this case it is entirely accurate! Justin Robertson is a producer and DJ, who brings with him a rich history as one of the creators of the Electronic Music scene, as well as a restless need to push forward and innovate, making him one of the most relevant DJs around.
Slide regulars the Eskimo Twins warm things up for Justin in the club. Since meeting as students in Leeds, these two friends have shared their passion for music. The pair immersed themselves in the city’s clubbing and live music scenes and after discovering a mutual appreciation of Techno, Classic House, Indie, Acid and a lingering teenage love of Metal; they began making music together.
Support across the venue comes from Dom Chung, residents Henry Greenwood, Lloyd Wakeman, Steve Robinson and more.
