What’s in the bag? – Lucio

The Spanish Tech House heavyweight sheds some light on what he’s spinning at the moment..

Shlomi Aber – We Don’t Fit

For me this track is always in my bag, my secret weapon, hard, groove and with punch, ever to go up the floor!


Wade – Check Point

Synth, melody, passion, this track has it all for me! Bomb!


Elio Riso & Lucio Spain – Breaking Minds

My new weapon to wake up the floor at anytime!


&ME – After Dark

From last year, my special intro or closing track to my sets … a bomb for the ears!


Santos – Hold Home

In my time a classic, HOLD HOME is the best for me!!!!!! Real house!!!!

MXD #005 – B.A.H.Y (Amplify)

MXD #005 – B.A.H.Y (Amplify)

For the fifth mix in our series we welcome B.A.H.Y, head honcho and resident of ‘Amplify’ – Hertfordshire’s hottest House and Techno export and new monthly Sunday party here at 1001.

Armed with a sound-engineering background and a degree in electronic music, B.A.H.Y’s own production is crisp, neat and tidy, keeping it interesting with clever sample use and leaning toward the darker, techier sound.

His DJ sets marry House and Techno tunes seamlessly. He kicks off his mix for us with some groovy Tech house and steadily progresses into a moodier Techno overtone, accentuating his expansive and varied interest in electronic music and shedding some light on the music policy of the Amplify brand.

A high calibre of previous guests including Josh Butler, Leftwing & Kody and Mark Fanciulli gives some insight into what you can expect from Hertfordshire’s hottest House and Techno party and with Amplify on the rise, B.A.H.Y is definitely one to watch for 2016.

Catch him spinning for Amplify 31/01/16

Amplify – Every last Sunday at Cafe 1001

Number two in our mix series has landed! This time we call upon the talents of 1001 regular Kalix and let him take us on a House-heavy journey with flavours ranging from rolling, quantized Tech House through to pure Acid numbers.


Not many DJs can say they’ve supported R&B Superstar Usher on his 2011 OMG tour, seamlessly mixing RnB, Hip-Hop and House music.. Meet Kalix, a London-based DJ and producer making all kinds of waves.

A regular on the London scene, having supported some of the most influential players on the circuit and done the works (Egg, Ministry of Sound, Pacha, Fabric, even Notting Hill Carnival), Kalix has launched Sucasa – A day-to-night party featuring cutting-edge electronic music, consistently strong lineups and attracting a fun-loving crowd.

His passion and dedication to music fuel his energetic and eclectic sets and give his production that extra something. With releases on Flat7, Minar Records, Paranormal Traxx and most recently I Can’t (release date 1st Ocober 2015) forthcoming on New York’s Karmic Power Records.
