Saturday 26th November
With very special guestsâ€¦
Kerri Chandler (Mad House / Circo Loco)
Zaki & Manish (Muak)
On Saturday 26th November, one of Londonâ€™s finest house parties, Muak, celebrates 8 years of music with a very special party. Welcoming back a selection of amazing guests who make up the Muak family, this is set to be one incredible sessionâ€¦
Taking centre stage is Muak friend and very special guest, Kerri Chandler. A man who needs little introduction, Kerri has been smashing it for quite a while. Heâ€™s continued to find the right balance of staying with his roots and exploring new sounds, and this year he found a fresh audience with his residency for the Circo Loco crew, and has been one of 2011â€™s most in demand djs. He smashed the last Muak event, we canâ€™t wait to welcome him and his box of tricks to the birthdayâ€¦
And finally, Muak co-conspirers and hosts, Zaki and Manish, will be keeping the candles burning.
Itâ€™s been a crazy 8 years with events taking place at large 2500 venues through to intimate warehouse gatherings. Staying true to the house sound, Muak has never verged to follow the trend. 2011 also witnessed the launch of the Muak label, of which the first releases have gone down a storm. There are plenty more surprises and plans in store for both the label and parties, roll on 2012â€¦
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Muakâ€™s 8th birthday will unfortunately no longer be taking place at Egg club. Never ones to be deterred, we set about sourcing a new venue suitable for such a special occasion. We succeeded and have managed to secure a warehouse in a secret east London location, that is of course, powered by the mighty Funktion One.
Capacity will now be reduced to 400 so this will now be a much more intimate affair. With this is mind, especially as Kerri Chandler will still be headlining, we have decided to keep this a ticket and guestlist affair only.
All current ticket sales are still valid.
If you have any more questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The venue will be announced on the day to all attendees and you can check this live URL for an announcement – http://f.twi.to/br7X
We hope you can join us on the 26th and thanks for all your continued support! xx

This Saturday 19th November at Electric Brixton Gilles Peterson celebrates the release of the latest instalment in his Havana Cultura album series, recruiting none other than Masters At Work legend Louie Vega to headline the DJ bill. Louie will be spinning a special Nuyorican Soul set not heard in the UK for many years! What’s more, Gilles is importing an all-star Cuban live band featuring Roberto Carcasses, Danay Suarez, Osdalgia, Alexey (El Tipo Este) from Obsesion, Edrey from Ogguere and Julito Padron to inject some authentic Latin flavour and raw Cuban rhythms.
It’s the first time that Gilles and Louie have played together in years and in honour of the occasion, Louie has pieced together a special Nuyorican Soul x Havana Cultura DJ mix to set the vibe up right. Check it!
Gilles Peterson brings the heartbeat of Havanaâ€™s music underground to Brixton for one special night only. Celebrating the latest installment in his Havana Cultura album series, Gilles imports an all-star Cuban live band to inject some authentic Latin flavour and showcase the full spectrum of raw Cuban rhythms, and recruits a heavy line-up of DJ talent to maintain the heat long into the night.
Continuing his longstanding love affair with Cuba and its musical melting pot, globetrotting DJ/broadcaster Gilles Peterson is back with a new chapter in his Havana Cultura album series â€“ producing an original studio album and lovingly curating a compilation of new Cuban talent.
Having spent the last three years travelling regularly to Havana I’ve understandably become more attached to this fascinating, almost otherworldly city. I’m also slowly getting to grips with the relationship music has here with the spirits and its people… the drum goes deep.
