A bit of background info on what we’ve done:
Deptford Northern Soul Club started in November 2016 with a sold-out show at Bunker Club in Deptford. Due to popular demand they returned to spin records as part of a monthly residency at the club - that still continues on and off to this day! Since then, backed by regular sell-out nights with queues down the street, Will and Lewis took the party to Glastonbury Festival 2017 playing to over 1500 people at William's Green stage where they were listed as number 20 in the top attractions at the festival.
Since then the boys played at End of The Road Festival, Norman Jay MBE’s Good Times Goes East party in Hackney and the Q Awards at the Roundhouse in Camden. In November 2017 they went on tour around the UK and Ireland.
The summer of 2018 boasted nights at Corsica Studios - London, Menagerie - Belfast and The Junction - Cambridge, to name a few. DNSC also hit the festival circuit to headline the coveted After Dark slot on The Walled Garden stage at Green Man Festival in Wales spinning tunes to well over 1.5k festival goers.
The boys took their records up to Manchester to start a monthly residency at YES, cementing themselves in the north with a massive sell out debut all before heading out on a mini pre NYE tour debuting Brighton, Komedia and iconic East London venue, The Shacklewell Arms. DNSC also returned to the Roundhouse, Camden to play at the Q Awards with Idles and Wolf Alice.
In the run up to the 2019 summer DNSC joined the campaign to Save The Social raising money to save the iconic Soho venue, hit up the Queens Yard Summer Party in Hackney, and debuted Bristol’sThekla. June saw Will and Lewis return to Glastonbury Festival playing five times over the weekend including The Meat Rack in NYC Downlow, William’s Green and the Deluxe Diner in Shangri La. The duo also returned to Green Man Festival in Wales and went to Scotland for the first time playing at Rost and La Belle Angele in Galsgow and Edinburgh stopping off to play at The Hare & Hounds in Birmingham and Rescue Rooms in Nottingham. 2019 was also marked the formation of DNSC.r (Deptford Northern Soul Club Records) and saw the first reissue of Lester Tipton - This Won’t Change/Edward Hamilton - Baby Don’t You Weep.
2020 has marked the start of a new bimonthly residency at Moth Club in Hackney.
