Nearly 20 years ago The Social was born just up the road from their current home on Little Portland Street. Back then, it was a thirteen week run of Sunday evening sessions in the basement of the Albany; glorious chaos, week in week out.

The Heavenly Sunday Social was the Chemical Brothers first London residency (they were the Dust Brothers then); support came from the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Tricky, Tim Burgess, David Holmes, Justin Robertson and many others. There was no genre, just good music. Eighteen months later, the Social took over legendary subterranean venue Turnmills for three years every week before opening its doors on Little Portland Street in 1999.   With 2014 marking the fifteenth anniversary of the Social and twenty years since the Sunday Social, they thought it was time to throw another weekly party with the same intentions in the ’90s. A party in a basement with music that makes you smile and dance.  So we gloriously welcome back The Heavenly Social! It will take place every Friday night at The Social, starting this Friday!

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
