Hi there, it looks like summer is finally here to stay along with an uplift of spirits. Harnessing a little of that spirit, we're kicking of the Summer/Autumn season of guest Rockstar Dj’s with an Invitation to the infamous Mr Lawrence. A sign of an experienced Dj is t be adapatable so we're offering you all something different to his epic long sets. We're setting him the challenge to distil his 25 years of musical knowledge down to just one pure hour of phenominal house music.
As a true perfectionist we expect nothing less than "0-60" in just one record, straight in peaking with all guns blazing. Sandwiched between our residents Jason Lorimer and Marble, with the club fully warmed up and by Tim Spins and Stevie T, it's in at the deep end, “0 to 60″, a take no prisoners Dj set. There simply shouldn't be any reason to comtemplate anything but being at Pengeparty right up until the last tune gets dropped. Over folowing months we welcome a succession of talent having their first Pengeparty experience please welcome them all with hands in the air! The goal of theses nights
August 17th – Brandon Block - Needs little introduction
October 19th - Andy Galea (Strictly Rhythm, Nightstylerz, DJ Bomba, Soul Seekerz, Sol Brothers)
Simon (Mr Lawrence) hasa distinctive and sought after sound. He has spun the soundtracks for literally hundreds of clubs for a quarter of a century having graced the decks in over 20 countries on 4 continents and was the World’s first DJ to play at the Coliseum inRome! In between sets at the behest of HRH Prince Faisal of Saudi Arabia, Valentino, Sir Elton John, David Furnish, Donatella Versace, Lulu & Kevin Spacey to name a few.
Most of Mr Lawrence’s time has been spent refining his unique sound at London’s more esoteric venues. Mr Lawrence imprinted the sound of London’s legendary underground scene at Hedge’s & Butler in the late 00’s, here he famously played a non-stop 24 hour set to a generation that will never forget. Few can perform such a feat.
Mr Lawrence is at home in Momo’s where he has been resident almost 15 years. Being a very exclusive members club it's quite a rarity to have him perform outside of his home. Revered artists like Herbie Hancock (USA), Seu Jorge (Brazil), Youssou N’Dour (Senegal), Roy Ayers, Rachid Taha (Algeria) and Femi Kuti(Nigeria) have performed live on stage! The venue is famed for its intimate and discrete charm, a fusion of North African & Ottoman style with a phenomenal sound system. It’s a sensory transportation to another World in London and Mr Lawrence has been a big part of its’ soundtrack. For many years Momo's cool and intimate Kemia bar has been second home to serious 'A' listers like Madonna, Liv Tyler, Cameron Diaz, Sacha Baron Cohen, Val Kilmer, Kylie Minogue, Keanu Reeves and meg Ryan. It is the privilege of a few and where you will often hear (if not see) Mr Lawrence playing a regular set.
His modesty adds to his charm as an orator of the turntables, an artist. Simon says his experiences in the 90’s of building club nights such as: That’ll Do Nicely, Londinium, & Much Ado About Nothing in super clubs like Hanover Grand, Ministry of Sound(playing for Open All Hours), Club UK, & Leisure Lounge(playing for Jet Set) helped him master his own sound & technique. He prefers playing long sets starting with a deep resonance, before switching to a lighter and higher sound later in the mix… Amongst the aficionados of London’s night scene there is no comparable name. He is known as a master of an art and a true journey DJ.
In the Lounge we kick of a summer season of guest Dj's and welcome a collection of Dj's who put Halo Promo on the London map, who originally drew inspiration, many moons ago from nights out at Pengeparty and forged that passion for quality music into Dj careers. Welcoming them back into the fold at Pengeparty we know that these lads will keep the lounge rocking from the first track played at 8pm until the last track played at the end of the night. This month we welcome Chris Hartnett, Ollie Mundy and Jason Sears to take you on their musical journey between them they have notched up over 40 years of Djing experience and have musical collections to match their experience.
We have 4 VIP tables now left in the club available for groups of 2-15. VIP invites will offer fast track entry absolutely no queueing and the option of having VIP waitress bottle service all night. There are 2 tables of 2-8 with a minimum spend of £350 and then 8 tables for 6-15 with a minimum spend of £500 available.
