This is an open call to all the electronic music producers of Essex….

It doesn’t matter how much you may have spent on a set of studio headphones or monitors, nothing quite compares to hearing your music in a club on a loud soundsystem.

Our Open System night gives you the opportunity to do just that. Come down with a USB stick with your latest masterpiece on it and we’ll play it back to you at the levels that music deserves to be heard at.

Get instant feedback from fellow producers, be inspired by the work of your peers, share ideas and grab a few beers in a relaxed, respectful atmosphere. All genres are welcome and entrance is free

You’ll also be treated to the very best underground grooves from our resident DJs Jimmy Floyd and Pinconii throughout the night dipping in and out of house, techno, minimal, electro, breaks and more
