It’s fair to say there are some exciting times ahead at Grand Hotel HQ… all kicking off with our third party at East London’s XOYO on November 12th, followed closely by the next GH single release at 00:01 on November 13th (more of that later), and heading into the wrapping up of our first GH mix album! We’ve been grafting away all year and we can’t wait to share the results with you…
This time round at XOYO we’re maintaining the years insane run of line-ups and will be joined by HOT CITY, C.R.S.T, WAFA, MISTAMEN and DRM RLL PLS for a huge Plump’s party and the official launch of the eighth Grand Hotel release; Plump DJs – Gobbstopper.
Lauded by Fatboy Slim as “the bastard son of everything I love about dance music…hooks and dirt!” Gobbstopper is an almighty bass-laden dirt disco hybrid that looks set to turn up the heat with its winter release. The record inspired by a summer of kick ass festival sets for us was first played on the Pagoda Stage at SGP, and following an immediate and unprecedented reaction Gobbstopper is now a must play in every set. We can’t wait for this one to drop!
After eight successful and diverse releases, plus some incredible artists coming along for the ride, we thought the time was right to deliver a dedicated Grand Hotel records LP. The result is an album crammed full of remixes and re-edits by GH artists old and new and features the highlights from two years of work on the label. ‘Dirty Weekend’ is due to come out early next year… check back for updates as they come!
