A review of Leicester’s most talked about upcoming techno brand, Full House, after their latest event smashed raver’s expectations with world-class DJ, Archie Hamilton, headlining the night.
Dark, groovy and intimate was the vibe at Full House’s most recent event on 31st January. Located in the heart of Leicester, underneath Sumo Nightclub, in a dark, brick-exposed basement, ravers gathered for a night of mind-bending techno, spellbinding beats and relentless two-stepping.
Stripped-back and personal the small venue kitted out with Full House’s trademark décor, offered the perfect space for ravers to enjoy energetic sets from resident DJ’s InLikeFinn, Jes With One S and Rivmah, followed by a three-hour extended set from one of techno’s most sought out DJ’s, Archie Hamilton.
With Leicester’s nightlife crying out for a clamorous, quality techno event, Full House, bridges the gap in Leicester’s electronic music scene, which is, currently, dominated by DNB events. Hosting legendary artists such as Archie Hamilton, renowned for delivering world-class sets in international clubs such as London’s Fabric and Ibiza’s Amnesia and for his appearances at major festivals such as Sonus, Sonar and ADE, Full House introduces a whole new, exciting realm of techno to Leicester.
Established in October 2017, Full House, inspired by music giants Marco Carola and Sven Vath, continues to blossom with each event, as founder, Finn Murphy, explains. “At the start,” he said, “we had a very limited budget so we were booking friends and up-and-coming DJ’s and not putting very much into the lighting, sound or décor”. Just over one year later, the team are now booking international DJ’s with huge followings, as well as improving their branding, lighting and sound systems.
“Our last event with Archie was mad. By far the friendliest and most crazy crowd we have ever had. Archie was incredible, he kept on playing past closing time until security tore him off the decks,” said Finn.
If you haven’t already been to Full House, then you need to get involved in the movement that is bringing techno to the city. Their next event, on 23rd February, aims to be even bigger and better than before, hosting artists such as Mason Collective and Ki Creighton, there is no doubt it’s going to be massive.
