Best. Clubnight. Ever. Release Yourself is night run by the guys from Galaxians and their friends. I knew from the start that it was going to be an amazing night, at a great venue, for people with good taste in music. In their own words, the playlist was all about the “elements of classic New York boogie, early 1980s electro and synth-funk in songs such as ‘Fire And Magic’ and ‘Electroads’ “.
Too old school, you say? I think it’s refreshing. When every other club in town plays boring unimaginative dubstep or typical indie-schmindy shtick, Release Yourself lets looks pure unadultered nostalgia, Studio 54 vibes, great tunes, the perfect summer party. There were 70s dance videos videos projected onto the wall while the DJs and band tore up the crowd. It was truly brilliant.

Of course everyone’s favorite live disco band from Leeds had to open the night. They’ve got some new studio tunes since I last blogged about them and you guys NEED TO HEAR THIS:
[Galaxians - Nightlife]
[Galaxians - Visual]
Great set and when it ended, Pat and Henry put Chic’s Everybody Dance vinyl on, everybody literally started clapping and jumping and dancing and the rest of the night, as they say, is disco history. Packed night, rammed as hell, at one point you couldn’t even walk through the place – there was just hot, sweaty, dancing bodies.
I got it on camera. Here are the rest of the shots:
You know what would be great? If we could get a Steve Rubelle on the door. That would be ridiculously amazing.
