Junk have just announced their New Year’s Eve lineup for 2013, most definitely bringing in 2014 with style. They’re kicking off at 9pm and going through “until we drop” which presumably means past 6am … crikey! It’s a triple-headline show feat. Heidi (BBC Radio 1 / Jackathon Jams), Ben Pearce (Purp & Soul), and Darius Syrossian (VIVa Music) with a selection of Junk’s finest residents and friends slotted in-between: Luca Pilato, Rhymos, Jody Hannan, Carlington,  Moe West, and Simon Aston.

Sound tasty? Well, they’re running a competition on Facebook to win four VIP tickets and a whole bunch of other goodies so go enter that.


Heidi has worked hard over the past decade to make her mark on the new house and techno music generation. You only have to visit her worldwide brand of Jackathon parties or listen to her BBC Radio 1 show to experience her passion for music and fiery nature. Heidi spends her life immersed in music. She lives and breathes the touring lifestyle, whether its 25,000 person crowds in Latin America or festivals such as Exit ,Global Gathering, Detroit’s Movement fest and the infamous cave of fabric in London or Japan’s Womb or holding her own at Jackathon residency strongholds in Ibiza, London, Berlin’s Watergate and Manchester …

To many, Ben Pearce’s name is synonymous with ‘What I Might Do’, his oddly anthemic deep-house debut that dominated club floors across the world in 2012, whilst garnering support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Heidi and Pete Tong. Whilst this is an easy correlation to make (the track went platinum in Europe after all), those who have followed him since the beginning can testify that he is so much more than that. Ben is very much an underground DJ first-and-foremost, aided in no small part by his vast musical knowledge and the ability to play across a wide range of musical genres. His skills behind the decks have not gone un-noticed, as shown by high-profile sets alongside the likes of Seth Troxler, Eats Everything, and Theo Parrish.

Having initially been infected by the futuristic lure of House music at an underground party back in 1991, Darius Syrossian’s fascination with electronic music has never waned, Taking formative influences from Detroit and Chicago masters like Kenny Dope, Danny Tenaglia, Derrick May, DJ Sneak and Carl Craig, a pure and unadulterated house sound has always been Darius’ pre-occupation in place of passing fads or zeitgeist defining trends …

Set to be a monster party for sure. More details as they come.
