Straight outta crime city Malmö in Sweden we're flying over two top notch guests-djs to Stoke Newington for our traditional clash with London Popfest!

JOSEF K from the club Night Beat, which is by far the best indie, pop & sixties club in southern Sweden whos set will bring you to your knees Kevin Rowland-style, and his partner in crime and record collector deluxe BASTIANO of Club Function, which has for the last 5 years been one of the most respected Northern Soul nights in Europe and who'll spin soul and indiepop so rare and beautiful that they'll make your heart sing.
