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 cosmic dance party held under the slow rotation of the disco-ball and rhythmic beats set down by our DJ’s.
  • This party takes place in Pan Pan, Digbeth, Birmingham UK.
  • 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/union, don’t pay ur bills, get up and get down, birmingham forever
