The idea of the residency, of one DJ or act forging a reputation across weeks or months seems to have fallen by the way side.
However Shoreditch nightspot XOYO is sticking to its guns. Eats Everything is completing a first quarter residency, inviting guests and close friends along in the process.
Now house duo The 2 Bears will take charge of the twin room venue from April 5th. Part of their role is to curate special guests, with the pairing calling in a few favours.
Glasgow crate-diggers Optimo are set to take part, with guest appearances confirmed from Daphni, Four Tet, Andrew Weatherall, Hot Chip and more.
Ending on June 28th, fans can expect more than a few surprises along the way. Full details:
