Idirs Elba heading to Switch Southampton for January 2016

Idris Elba is set to play at Switch Southampton in the new year. Saturday 23rd January will see the DJ-come-film-and-TV-star appearing alongside a selection Southampton’s finest residents.

Idris Elba is far from your average actor turned musician having begun his career as a DJ long before finding fame on the screen. Whether spinning surprise sets in small east-London bars or thrilling thousands in the world’s top clubs, warming up for Madonna Idris’ credibility as a DJ & selector is without question. Now Idris is back in a big way; alongside several roadblock appearances at Snowbombing, Ibiza Rocks & Glastonbury Idris has established yearly residencies at top Ibiza party destinations including Pacha & Pikes. Between these headline appearances Idris has also found time to produce remixes and genre-spanning album projects including a remix of Skepta’s crossover hit Shutdown, his own Nelson Mandela inspired ‘mi Mandela’ album and his forthcoming ‘Murdah Loves John’ inspired by his role as TV Detective John Luther which is picking up radio plays from Annie Mac, MistaJam, Huw Stephens and many more.

Tickets are on sale now.
