A Preparty to Remember.
The day started with Martin Solveig and Sleepy Tom, then we got really excited when Marvin Humes decided to join the party, but the roof was blown off Cafe Mambo when both Diplo and Jillionaire of Major Lazor gatecrashed the My House at Pacha pre-party. Word soon spread and the crowds duly arrived with Jillionaire first into the hallowed Mambo DJ booth, soon followed by Diplo for a surprise b2b set. Their sound was base driven dropping tracks like the Julio Bashmore remix of Love is Gonna Lift You Up by Bobby Womack and the huge base house banger from Matroda, Deep Inside.
Martin Solveig was next up opening his set with a track tipped as a summer anthem this season, Trouble by Offaiah. Martin has been featuring this catchy uplifting piano house number in his sets at Pacha and Mambo recently. The Pacha dancers once again upped the energy levels as they filled the DJ booth with smiles and grooves as Martin delivered another polished set featuring a remix from MK called Always, with Alana on vocals. He was then joined for our second b2b session of the night by Sleepy Tom who filled the DJ booth with the Redlight Remix of Wet Dollars from Tazer X Tink. One of our picks of the evening, On The Corner by Moonbotica, had the crowd really moving to its hypnotic deep beat that drops 4 minutes into this fine slice of house.
Rounding off a night to remember was Marvin Humes, who had all the ladies in the crowd up dancing and excited for a DJ who has been a firm favourite at Cafe Mambo this summer. The ex JLS star opened with the classic Treasured Soul from Michael Calfan and continued pumping out the crowd pleasers with a tightly mixed set, droping another Calfan remix of Duke Dumonts Ocean Drive. One of the most popular tracks with the crowd was, Dont Give Up On Love by Blinkie and the Perfecto Dub of the classic house anthem, Where Love Lives, by Alison Limerick. As we file this report the party is still going strong inside Mambo with Humes playing an extended set much to the delight of the crowd. Join us tomorrow night for Glow In The Dark who preparty FMIF with us live from 9pm.
