We are honoured to present the debut “DJ” set from London based expat Simon “Psyrok” next month.

You can check him out at

From: 7pm til 12am
On: Dray Walk, just off Brick Lane, London E1 6QL

Making this the rockiest start to a year ever for Spacific, Elemeno P will now be joined by Steriogram and Deja Voodoo for their inaugural London show.

For those of you who have managed to avoid them thus far, power pop rockers Elemeno P burst onto the scene back in 2003 with their “Love and Disrespect” album, whose simple guitar driven pop songs with big choruses pushed them to sales of over 45,000 albums in NZ alone. They built on this success with 2005’s “Trouble in Paradise”, which spawned hit singles, “One Left Standing” and “Burn” and helped them to win Best Group at the NZ Music Awards that year.

Steriogram tasted similar success with their debut album, “Schmack”. Singed by legendary American label Capitol Records, they toured the US for over a year, and hit the big time when their “Walkie Talkie Man” track was used in one of the first iPod campaigns. This pushed them into the Top 20 in the UK and led to further hits worldwide. Tired of major label shenanigans, they have just released their second album, “This Is Not The Target Market” on their own label.

Deja Voodoo began as the fictional house band for the show Back of the Y Masterpiece Television. The 15 seconds of mimed rock’n’roll these three posers produced at the start of each episode was enough to score them a nationwide Orientation tour, and they have carried on from there. If you like badly played metal solos, lame Exponents-like songs and moronic vocalisation – you’ll love Deja Voodoo!
