Decoded Radio presents House Proud with Russell James

In keeping with Decoded Magazine’s continual support for the underground electronic music scene, it was only natural to team up with Peterborough’s House Proud, a 9 year labour of love from promoter Russell James. May Bank Holiday Sunday 29th Circoloco resident and one half of Peace Division Clive Henry joins our very own Editor, Damion Pell, Russell and the House Proud residents for a 12hr terrace party. Starting out 9 years ago at Mission nightclub in Leeds, House Proud has become the culmination of a lifetime dedicated to dance music.

“We’ve hosted events at Sankey’s (the year it was DJ Mag club of the year) and also small intimate venues across the UK over the years, but its in our 600 capacity terrace, which has an incredibly inclusive atmosphere, that things have really clicked.” Russell tells Decoded, “I built the terrace events up around residents and now have some amazing acts wanting to play. The events start at 2pm and we’ve been known to be at capacity soon after; I’ve actually seen queues around the corner for over 2 hours with one in one out, which hasn’t been done for as long as I can remember in this city, especially on a Sunday!”

After a long line of guest DJ’s to headline House Proud including Anek, Alex Arnout, Adam Shelton, Harry Romero and Yousef; Clive Henry is next to continue with the reigns of quality house music.

One of the UK’s longest standing flag-wavers for underground house music having been an original member of the West London house mafia, one half of the genre-defining tech house outfit Peace Division and resident at the world’s most musically influential nightclub DC10. In 1988 he was introduced to London’s early acid house scene by Rocky and Diesel from Xpress 2. They took him to the seminal Spectrum and Shoom clubs which proved highly instrumental in shaping Clive’s musical future.

Not long after, Clive and Rocky started running their own successful nights in the emerging West London party scene called Bone and Gosh with guests like David Holmes, Andrew Weatherall and Ashley Beedle. It wasn’t long before Clive started playing at his own events, which in turn lead to bookings at other clubs, first in London and then across the UK. In 1998 he founded the iconic tech house label Low Pressings with fellow surburbanite Justin Drake who went on to become his production partner in Peace Division.

During this period Clive relocated to Ibiza every summer and in 2000 on after a night out at Space with fellow DJ Lottie they stumbled across the now legendary Circoloco afterparty held at DC10 on Monday mornings. DC10 was more like a social club for DJs, promoters and their friends and it wasn’t long before Clive was a regular feature at the club. He hasn’t looked back. During the last decade Clive has established himself as the British backbone of the club laying down his trademark brand of deep no-nonsense house music week in week out having being invited to join DC10 stellar roster of residents back in 2004. Clive’s residency at DC10 brought him into contact with Crosstown Rebels frontman Damian Lazarus who quickly brought Clive into the Crosstown family.

Now we have the makings of a perfect 12hr terrace party to kick start the summer. Leading up to the event Russell James has laid down a full on all out techno guest mix for Decoded Radio. Strap yourself in.
