discotech celebrates 10 years of parties, bad decisions, and long weekends!

In the UK, in the small town of Derby, label/party discotech has been throwing its events for 10 years. They’re celebrating the only way they know how to, a good old-fashioned party with like-minded people, a naughty sound system, and some talented selectors!

Over 10 years they have hit some impressive milestones including over 100 parties, and an impressive array of special guests including Archie Hamilton, Subb-an, Rossko, Rich NxT, Burnski, Adam Shelton, Laura Jones, Nail, Inland Knights, Seb Zito and many more. 80+ Podcasts, 4 chart top vinyl releases and an impressive digital catalogue.

This year alone they’re holding showcases across the UK and Europe to continue their celebrations at 93 Feet East in London, Birmingham, Distrikt Leeds, Nottingham, Ibiza, Bulgaria, Berlin, Bristol and of course their hometown Derby.

The 6th of August sees them celebrate on home turf with their Open Air Carnival that promises to have all the discotech trimmings.

“We’re really trying to bring something to Derby that hasn’t been done before with this event. The location (Friary Courtyard) is perfect for a day party. We will be completely transforming the space to bring you our very own city Carnival.” – Jordan Diston (discotech promoter/resident DJ)

Lauren Lo Sung who needs very little introduction and UK tech-house guru, Kepler will be supported by trusted discotech residents Jordan Diston, Angle and Scott Streak as well as local talent, Elliot Hollins and Lee Whitehead.

Expect some amazing decor from local artists, actors and performers, a 4-point 360-degree Funktion One Sound system and of course some added surprises.

This event has people coming from all over the UK which is a massive testament to what discotech has achieved over the past 10 years. With just over 100 tickets left and still 3 weeks to go!

“Discotech is one big family, it’s all about like-minded people coming together, enjoying some great music and forging new friendships and relationships. Exactly what it’s about” – Dave Angle (discotech promoter/resident DJ)

With their label taking off this year with support from the likes of Raresh, Enzo Siragusa, Archie Hamilton, Chris Stussy, Toman, Tania Vulcano, Rossko, Seb Zito and many more and lots more plans for some really exciting events on the horizon. It’s safe to say things are just getting started for discotech.
