Ben Proudlove’s next gig is this weekend on 24th November, where he will be headlining a fantastic new night in Finsbury Park. The night is called Fl’eau and is set to be an absolute stormer!
Fl’eau is a brand new deep, tech and dub house night launching at The Silver Bullet. Fluid yet jackin’ beats compliment smooth throbbing basslines to bring you a musical and clubbing experience like no other. A composite of big vocal house tunes with deep, underground soulful compositions make this night vary from any others you might find. Bringing an underground big Ibiza club feel to a smaller, intimate venue without the dark and minimal ideals, Fl’eau is not a night to miss!
Anyone in London this weekend should most definitely go and check this fantastic night out. Budding writers that manage to get themselves to Fl’eau this weekend should send their articles in to Young Academic as always, the School of Music wants your reviews!
