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

Drop (Music for the people) return’s Saturday 26th March at London’s Vibe bar.
This months – Zaki from Muak headlines the party with Sol Brown.
Zaki Lais is a man on a mission. A mission to bring the sound of deep house out from the underground and into the mainstream by any means necessary.
This mission, started out from a base in East London where Zaki grew up and still resides, has since led him on journeys across the globe to play, promote and produce the music he lives so passionately for.
Starting out on the early pirate radio stations Risk FM and Touch FM, Zaki helped to pioneer the deep house sound across Londonâ€™s airwaves and was an instrumental figure behind the house music explosion of the mid 1990s.
This love affair quickly led onto more liaisons which saw him step out of the studio and into the DJ booth. First at some of Londonâ€™s best nights and most infamous venues including Lazy Dog, Vertigo, The End, Turnmills, Egg and AKA and then onto others throughout the UK, Europe, America and Asia.
Now armed with a passion to entertain, and a vision to host his own parties, Zaki launched Muak (People Together) in 2003. Widely regarded as one of Londonâ€™s best underground nights, itâ€™s here where he can regularly be heard preaching the gospel of deep house music to a loyal following who share his vision to bring people together through a love of music and mutual respect sometimes so lacking from other promoters.
Not content to rest on his enviable achievements, next up was the launch of Muak (Music) where Zaki has overseen the production, release and promotion of quality deep house outputs from a range of home grown and international talent on both digital and physical formats.
When asked to convey his mission and where it might take him Zakiâ€™s response is typically passionate, â€œIt all stems first from a love of music. Without that, how can we put our heart and soul into it and make it work. Once people see that, it takes them with us and keeps them coming back for more. As to where we might end up, who knows, weâ€™re just enjoying the journeyâ€.
So are we Zaki. And long may it continue.
DROP a night with a musical policy that will take in all elements of house music â€“ from the deep and soulful to electro tinged.
Itâ€™s all about great music, great people and great party, in an intimate setting and a fantastic locationâ€¦so get down and join us.
This is a party not to be missed

…All friends is a concept that has been constructed over a number of years, incorporating select acquaintances and friends whom we hold in high esteem, thanks to their exquisite musical tastes and proven abilities to smash dancefloors. For Octoberâ€™s party we welcome several special international guests and party selectors, to serve up a gourmet feast of the finest house and techno musicâ€¦
We have very special guest Edground from the Brazilian Soul Crew touching down for his Debut UK appearance. DJ, music producer and owner of Grooveland Music (a mix of music label, radio programs and parties), Edgrounds sound flows through Brazilian and African rhythms drenches with soul, jazzy grooves and seductive electronics. Invited to play and represent the Club Shelter parties, he has won many plaudits for his super groovy sound.

A member of the enigmatic underground Stratospherik collective, the Barcelona based producer/dj has been putting out deep techno and warm house on several labels from an early age under various monikers. In 2007 he started his Soul Minority project to release more house-orientated music. After a bunch of well received remixes, Soul Minority delivered his first EP on Pack up and Dance and it was an instant hit on the new deep house scene. His since released fresh material and remixes for labels Tsuba, Dirt Crew, Peppermint Jam, Kolour Recordings, Elevation Recordings, Noir Music and moreâ€¦
