Energy Flow 003


Saturday 4th February 2023, 10pm-2am


1464 Pershore Rd, Stirchley, Birmingham B30 2NT


ENERGY FLOW is a transference and intermingling party of shared deep grooves and en-tranced 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. We want you to leave with more energy than you arrived with. High-fi low lifes.


  • This is a dance party held under the slow rotation of the disco-ball and rhythmic beats set down by our DJ’s.
  • These parties take place in Artefact cafe and art gallery, Birmingham UK.
  • DJ’s on the night: Rizmi, Dee’Cleo, DJ Superstar DJ
  • Expect psychedelic deep grooves, beautiful voices, house n disco cuts, entranced acid and bass from around this pale blue dot.

We are putting on a party etc… David Mancuso, queer shit, 1312, don’t pay, get up and get down
