Energy Flow 001


Saturday 1st October 2022, 8pm-2am

ENERGY FLOW is a transference and intermingling party of shared deep grooves and en-tranced acid bass. Between bodies – between djs and dancers. Playing a late night drawl – a lateral drawl – a late night libidinal drawl of deep, house n disco cuts, acid trance and bass.


  • This is a dance party held under the slow rotation of the disco-ball and rhythmic beats set down by our DJ’s.
  • The first in a series of Energy Flow parties at Artefact, Birmingham.
  • DJ’s on the night: Dee’Cleo, DJ Superstar DJ, sexy roy
  • Expect deep grooves, house n disco cuts, entranced acid and bass.

We are putting on a party etc… David Mancuso, queer shit, don’t pay
