Silly season in the capital is always a good one for new experiences and memorable parties. B.Traits’ Christmas party was definitely up there as one of DLTM’s favourites during the festive period, one of the many events we hit up and one of the standout moments in the lead up to Christmas Day.
Up in the Live Lounge the Canadian DJ and radio host invited a select few industry friends and their associates to join her in a live broadcast which included DJ sets from Greg Wilson, David Squillace, Richy Ahmed and Paco Osuna. As the drinks flowed and the music pumped, we danced with friends, new and old, and had a fantastic time in a slightly surreal environment.
Though of course the Radio 1 studios are predominantly used for the purposes of playing music to the UK and the rest of the world, you’d never imagine actually partying in one of them – unless you’re a member of staff or a star of some description. Greg Wilson was most impressive – there’s something very special about watching one of the UK’s DJ godfathers switching between CDJs and a reel-to-reel tape deck as he throws down one funky jam after another.
An absolute Christmas treat and one which we hope is repeated at some point in the future.
