THE ORB: "The Orb, innovators of ambient house and one of Britain’s all-time most celebrated electronic acts" [FACT] "Top 50 Albums of 2015" [Mixmag] "'Pioneer' is an appellation that's thrown around in the music industry without the thought it deserves, but underestimate The Orb's work bringing synthesised music to the mainstream at your peril." [GQ]
THE FREESTYLERS: "The dancefloor sensation of the new millennium, a fast moving, electro-rocking monster movie that is going to hit your house like a tidal wave, and wash all your preconceptions out of the door" [Resident advisor] "Breakbeat legends" [M Magazine]
SCRATCH PERVERTS: "Scratch Perverts are some of the most accomplished DJ duos in the world" [Vice] "a masterclass in hip-hop DJing" [FACT]
Compères: Jay Steppa + DubRoot & DJ Smutty
Come prepared to dance with DJ sets from the above, all to raise money for MSF! All in an amazing Grade II Listed building, a 5 minute walk from Walthamstow central Tube!

We will be encouraging donations on the night, with money going straight to MSF!
No ticket required for entry, although if you do intend to come, please click for a free Event Reminder before the event which will help us plan numbers.***
How else will money be raised?
Wild Card Brewery is running one of the two bars at Mirth, and donating beer stock and associated sales to MSF, and running the bar for free on the evening.
Mirth, Marvel & Maud, Wild Card Brewery and Byrd Out are covering the cost of the evening, with generous help from local independent Estate Agent Stow Brothers, London Speaker Hire and Watts Up soundsystem (Thank you!).
