Making his Glitterbox debut, Crazy P’s Ron Basejam is renowned for sets that span disco, funk, house and everything in between with a heathy dose of the productions, remixes and edits which he has established himself as an artist of unwavering talent.
Glitterbox’s emphasis on performance further elevates proceedings with a live appearance from the legendary Alison Limerick, who will be performing amongst others the iconic, Frankie Knuckles-produced ‘Where Loves Lives’, as well as M-People percussionist and renowned drum warrior Shovell.
Finally, The Loft hosts the For The Love Of House DJs where Greg Sawyer and Simon Dawson who will be spinning classic house all night long, paying homage to the records that have helped define the scene over the past 30+ years, while the Savage dance crews Nutbags and Hot Heels will be out in force, with live dance shows and rampant dancefloor debauchery adding the final sparkle to Glitterbox’s unique atmosphere.
