London based party brand Tessellate are taking things back to basics for this Year’s New Year’s Eve - A great venue, a killer soundsystem and Numbers boss Spencer playing an extended set of party records. With that in mind, we decided to take a closer look at their headline act, as well as the venue for the party.
One of the co-founders of Glasgow’s Numbers, Spencer started young. In his teenage years, he embarked upon what is now almost a decade of party planning and record releasing. From early beginnings in working in Glasgow’s world-renowned record store Rubadub, honing his DJing skills with schoolfriend Jackmaster, and co-hosting Detroit techno legend Claude Young’s radio shows – to working at Warp Records and now living in London; Spencer has been a key player in aiding the city’s recent rise as an essential exporter of electronic music.
A DJ since the age of 13, his skills have seen him tour across the globe over the past decade, and he can now be heard co-hosting Numbers’ Rinse FM show. Whether it’s co-running the events and label for Numbers, or delivering killer mixes on and off the dancefloor, he has a musical knowledge and surefire selection that makes volume level 11 seem unsatisfactory.
Formerly known as Autumn St Studios, Bloc is one of our favourite East London spaces. Now operated by the team behind Bloc festival, the venue combines a minimal warehouse aesthetic with top level sound and lighting production. After a sellout debut there back in September 2014 with Andres we are delighted to be back in Hackney to welcome in the New Year.
