BringBackTheBeat presents Stuart Patterson
Stuart has been at the forefront of London’s cutting edge club scene for several decades. Through DJing, club programming and promoting, fanzines or mix compilations, his profile has continually risen since the 90s and he now takes bookings from the farthest flung spots across the globe from those who crave proper house music and 21st century disco.
From his early ventures running revered club nights like Soulsonic, through to the legendary Faith parties, and more recently his Date events, Stuart has always led the way in bringing the world’s finest DJs to London to play alongside the capital’s best.
He was the brains behind the Shoreditch venue East Village. His hard work saw an East London club of under 500 capacity attract the world’s favourite DJs and parties, including Carl Craig, Derrick Carter, Skream, Kerri Chandler, Maseo (De La Soul), Gilles Peterson, Norman Jay, Jazzie B, Greg Wilson, Danny Krivit, David Rodigan, Horse Meat Disco and many more.
Stuart’s most recent project has been the opening of London record shop, Love Vinyl. Within weeks, the shop was the talk of the town with extraordinary in-store sets from the likes of Jimpster, Danny Krivit, Timmy Regisford and Mr Thing. Love Vinyl is now a ‘must visit’ location to pick up the finest wax.
