London club Fire heat’s up the capital with house sessionsSome people out there claim that they “don’t do” house music. What they’re unaware of - or simply choose to ignore - is that house goes far beyond the remix of a pop song. London club Fire plan on offering an education to those both new and well-acquainted to house - one that journeys through a series of sessions, and collaborates with experienced promoters, and artists both established and new. The mission? To showcase the true breadth of house and a brand-spanking new direction for the club.

The first session kicks off on 15th September where Mixmag present Steve Aoki, South Central, Doorly, DOD and more (yet to be announced). This, plus one more event make up the installments for September. In the second edition, it’s promoters What Matters who’ll deliver Pleasurekraft and Format: B, before things heat up a notch in the following month.

Three Fire sessions are planned for October, with the first one being headed up by Bedrock Records; John Digweed and Nick Muir’s label that will be commemorating 14 fine years. Expect John on the decks, with back up from Apparat, Crosstown Rebel’s Amirali, plus Electric Rescue and Maxime Dangles Al Tourettes.

October carries an underlying theme of anniversaries too as the next session on the 13th plays host to RWD Magazine’s 11th birthday. This is a pretty big one; with over a whopping 21 guest DJs including Skepta and Semtex.

Moving into November Fire ramps things up with a further four events. The first one on the 3rd sees Neon Noise Project presenting a belated Halloween special. Vitalic takes the top spot on the night, playing tracks from his forthcoming album ‘Rage Age’. Then it’s over to the team behind Bugged Out! to run the show on the 10th, with guests including Heidi, Miguel Campbell, Richy Ahmed, T Williams and Real Nice DJs.  The two final parties in November see What Matters returning to host an edited selection of acts (yet to be confirmed), then Kitsune Club Night and Lost co-host the grand finale with an abundance of more well-known names.

Ten parties in only three months, with over 70 artists make it clear that Fire is serious about portraying the full spectrum of house and proving that there’s something for everyone. It’s all in the name of a new vision for the Vauxhall-based club, one that focuses on cutting-edge techno, electronic and house music. “We wanted to create to series of high-profile credible events that breathed life into our new music policy and reposition”, says Mark Williams, Fire’s Head of Marketing and Events. He continues. “This combined with the greatest attention to sound and lighting aims to provide a unique clubbing experience for Londoners. But don't take my word for it, come down yourself and see what all the fuss is about!
