Neil Hood from On the House tells us how 'Epic' the last OTH event was and looks forward to not one, but two, OTH events in December.
Hi and welcome to another action packed edition of our On the House monthly blog, there’s quite a bit to fit in so what better way to start than to talk about how ‘Epic’ last Friday was!
As you all know we put on our biggest line up to date with 5 headliners playing across 3 rooms, covering every genre of house music you could think of, hence us coining the phrase ‘From Toolroom to Big Room’ as it summed up what the night was all about; every room you went in to you were sure to get a different housey vibe! Every DJ on the night played an absolute blinder, the atmosphere was incredible (as always) and there were a lot of fresh faces in the crowd which was good to see.
OTH Favourites Markus Lauc & Jon Mancini never disappoint and had the basement singing along to their funky vocal sound whilst Tristan Ingram warmed the main room up nicely with his trademark Balearic vibe. After Tristan, Toolrooms Pete Griffiths took over, this was a set I was really looking forward to as the Toolroom brand has been massive this year. To have one of their main men play for us was really special. He didn’t disappoint and by the time he finished with his boss’ (Mark Knight) remix of ‘You got the Love’ the main room was packed.
Everyone was waiting for our main headliner to finally take to the decks and Sandro Silva didn’t mess about! I would say that has got to be the toughest most hi-octane set I’ve heard at On the House. Hints of many other genres of dance music including trance and dubstep were infused perfectly into his set and of course when he dropped ‘Epic’ the main room was simply just that! It was Sandro’s first time in Scotland and he raved about it on twitter the next day, saying he would be back soon. You are more than welcome Sandro!
It was down to myself to once again close proceedings; highlight of my set had to be playing the bootleg I made alongside Justin Reilly which mashed up the Tommy Trash mix of ‘Ladi Dadi’ and SHM’s ‘Save the World’; dropping the volume and hearing the whole main room sing back the chorus was something special (cheers if you were part of the choir that night).
Overall the whole night was a great success and I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who came, we hope you can make our next two events we have lined up in December.
First up in December we have our famous Christmas All Dayer which as always will be held in the Courtyard on the 15th December; these events are one of my personal highlights on the OTH calendar so I’m very excited. We have an array of Scotland’s up and coming talent as well as our headliners The Futuristic Polar Bears (quite fitting for the type of year don’t you think); their techy but melodic sound has been making big waves for quite some time now so we are really looking forward to having them play for us and we are sure you will love them just as much as we do. There is also a after party which is going to be at held at a swish club in Glasgow, full details will be on the On the House Facebook page.
For the very first time, and due to the success we’ve had this year, we have decided to put on a New Years Eve party, and what a party it’s going to be! We are taking over the whole of O’Couture (3 floors) and are bring you arguably the biggest house brand in the world, HED KANDI! The buzz about this already has been incredible with people looking to book tickets and tables, again all details of this amazing show will be available on our official Facebook page, if you are a fan of all things house you seriously don’t want to miss this!
To keep you going to the All Dayer, OTH’s very own Andy Raeside (one half of The House Bandtis) has mixed this Ibiza Censored podcast for your audio pleasure. Until next time, have a great weekend and keep it On the House!
