147 Curtain Road – Shoreditch, London. A legendary address, home of one of the most fascinating underground music clubs worldwide, Plastic People – a place truly defined by the love of music.
[audio:xxx-xxx.mp3]With its 200 people capacity and its incredible custom built sound-system, Plastic People has been the shelter of one of the best nights ever – from Dubstep FWD, the eclectic “All Stars” Balance to Broken Beat Co-Op or CD-R.
Madlib, J Dilla (RIP), 3 Chairs, 4 Hero, Mark Ernestus, ?uestlove, François K, Flying Lotus – the list is endless – have all blessed the turntables. It’s no surprise that Theo Parrish has his only EU monthly residency there. Floating Points too.

All this has been made possible thanks to the vision of one man, Abdul Forsyth – better known as Ade, almost 2 decades ago. Originally from Nigeria, the Plastic People owner is an incredible DJ too.
Highly respected and renowned for his unique style, playing a Jay Dee or Moodymann record together with some obscure avant-garde jazz or beautiful rare Ethiopian soul.
So to give a proper tribute to a place that had a huge influence on our musical choices, we are more than blessed to welcome Abdul Forsyth together with the young and talented producer, Sam Shepherd aka Floating Points for a special back to back session on the 21st January.
Besides the night, a selection of some of the legendary line-ups and greatest artworks made by the designer Ali Augur for the London club will be exhibited from mid-December at HHV Record store.
