Tonight at Public Works is going to be a cavalcade of nostalgia, with familiar sounds pouring from the Funktion 1’s to drench you in dancefloor glory.

With tasteful edits of songs everyone loves, from Fleetwood Mac to the Eagles, The Clash to David Bowie, Luxxury just wants to party with you singing along. And if that wasn’t enough to tickle your fancy, Luxxury will be warming up the dance floor for the one and only Scumfrog!!! Bring extra shoes and a couple of towels!

In celebration of No. 19’s five-year anniversary, Canadian duo Art Department – Jonny White and Kenny Glasgow – dish out a free download of a new track: “Heartbreakers Techno”.
The crew over at Dancing Astronaut review the track:
“The track pairs fluid melodies with synthetic dissonance, creating a clash of sounds that compete yet compliment each other throughout the mix. Spastic organ work sits effortlessly on top of a gripping percussive section, one that is teeming with shakers, claves and claps. It’s a strange pairing that results in the creation of a powerfully melancholic atmosphere, further embodying the track’s namesake and the pair’s forward-thinking approach to their art.”
We’re excited to have Art Department, such a revered act, drop in to Public Works tomorrow night!
Tomorrow is going to be epic, to say the least, so make sure to get tickets!
