We wanna go somewhere else. We’re not threatened by people anymore. All our insecurities have evaporated. We’re in the clouds now. We’re wide open. We’re spacemen orbiting the earth. The world looks beautiful from here, man. We’re nympholeptics, desiring for the unobtainable. We risk sanity for moments of temporary enlightenment. So many ideas. So little memory. The last thought killed by anticipation of the next. We embrace an overwhelming feeling of love. We flow in unison. We’re together. I wish this was real. We want a universal level of togetherness, where we’re comfortable with everyone. We’re in rhythm. Part of a movement. A movement to escape. We wave goodbye. Ultimately, we just want to be happy. Heh, yeah, hang on, what the fuck was I just talking about?

Motion 3rd Birthday - Lee Foss, Andre Crom, Ben Pearce

Slightly late throwing this one out there, but nonetheless, Motion have curated a stunning line up for their 3rd birthday celebration. Lee Foss, Andre Crom and Ben Pearce will all be gracing the legendary Digital club in Newcastle this Friday (yes, tomorrow). 


Each artist has had stunning success in recent months. Lee Foss, part of the Hot Natured quartet has been going from strength to strength; their latest single, Reverse Skydiving, has reached the necessary heights to fulfil its own title.

Similarly, both Andre Crom and Ben Pearce have had their fair share of the limelight too. Perfect Thing has long been a personal favourite of ours and we’re pretty confident that everyone and their dog has, at some point, got down to Ben’s What I Might Do.

If you’re quick, you can still grab your ticket off NJAT

Oh, and who knows. Maybe, just maybe Anabel Englund  will show up. 

Audio Asylum bring another stunning line up to the table. The 18th of April will see Bondax and others grace Newcastle’s legendary World Headquarters.
Be sure to grab your ticket.

House of Horror at Persistence Sundays

Not content with hosting one of the biggest house music sessions in Newcastle every week, the Persistence team have got together to give you a one-of-a-kind spectacular Halloween treat. 

House of Horror at Persistence Sundays

The aptly named House of Horror has arrived. On Sunday the 28th of September, Persistence will be taking over both The Cut and Loja in what is no doubt going to be Newcastle’s biggest and best Halloween celebration. 

With Persistence being taken to new heights every week, it should come as no surprise that its first one off special is pulling out all the stops. A massive 6 DJ’s, yes 6, will be gracing the Halloween special with their presence. Weekly resident CJ Costigan returns among others such as Scottie Disneyland, Adam Christie, Tom Higham, Nathan Williams and ex Ministry of Sound and Pacha resident Jay Stone! With all 6 DJ’s focused on bringing you the best in quality house music, and each with their own unique style and twist, this is one line up that you just cannot afford to miss. 

And if that wasn’t enough, the Persistence team have announced that Paris Percussionauts will be making a return with his legendary bongos! Having preformed with some of the worlds best DJ’s, he’s certain to bring a spice to the night that you won’t find elsewhere.

Persistence at Tup Tup Palace

Of course, a Halloween themed night would be nothing without a well dressed crowd and while it’s not a requirement to be looking at your best (or worst?), the most scarily looking boy or girl can expect a bottle of vodka on the house. If that isn’t enough inspiration, we don’t know what is.

You’ll need a ticket for House of Horror and they only cost £7! With the combination of The Cut, Loja and 6 of Newcastle’s finest house DJ’s, that price is quite literally a steal. Just get in touch with either the event managers Dean Saunders on 07751359424, Emilio Arceri on BBM 21F73CA0, Kalover Loverson on 07564697043, Michael Johnson on BBM 276DC46C for tickets and guestlist. Alternatively check out Persistence on Facebook and Twitter. You’ll want to do it soon as it’s already proving to be in demand, and you definitely don’t want to run the risk of a higher price or even no entry on the night!

Oh, and trust us when we say that although it’s named House of Horrors…the music will be anything but horrific!

Black Light Newcastle

The Big Bad Robot (website and Facebook) team have long already made their mark on Newcastle’s clubbing scene. The team behind some of Newcastle’s best loved event nights, such as Waikiki (Twitter and Facebook), Social Butterfly (Twitter and Facebook) and Dirty Little Secret (Twitter and Facebook), Big Bad Robot should need no introduction. With nights that not only appeal to Newcastle’s diverse range of students but countless well practised locals as well, it’s clear that Big Bad Robot are capable of bringing something different to the table. After all, their success speaks for itself.

The team’s latest offering is no exception.

Black Light Newcastle 1

Say hello to Black Light (Twitter and Facebook), the newest entry in the Big Bad Robot line up. Running every Thursday at the well established Legends, a favourite among many Newcastle based residents, Black Light brings some of the best in house music to the table. Curated by the Northern Project team (Twitter and Facebook), made up of Dan Stafford and Paul Thomas, you can expect only the very best in house to grace your ears. Coupled with a visual lighting system that’s almost seizure inducing, and even Co2 cannons, Black Light is an all out assault on your senses - a truly unique experience.

And the good news doesn’t stop there. With £1.50 shots, Fosters and VKs, along with £2 house doubles up until midnight, you don’t need to worry about breaking the bank. Standard entry will cost £5 but it takes zero effort to get that down to £4 on guest list.

Black Light Newcastle 2

How do you go about doing that? Simply get in touch with the main men themselves, event managers Adam Dawkins on 07715284775, Will Cooper and Danny Alvarado. Now these guys are not your run of the mill event managers; they are the one-of-a kind charmers. They understand that the key to a great night is all about putting the customers first. Your experience is their priority and making sure the atmosphere is on another level is the only concern they have. Solidified by their hands on approach that brings record numbers through the doors every week, it’s an experience that you can’t afford to miss! That’s not your only option though, a quick word to either Charlton Ndlovu, George Archer or Henry Wade will also ensure you can enjoy that precious guestlist entry.

Introducing Persistence at Tup Tup Palace…

Newcastle has long been missing a quality night that premiers nothing but house music; one that focuses on just the music itself. No gimmicks, just quality house that is the only fitting way to end the week. 

Persistence at Tup Tup Palace

With the introduction of Persistence that runs every Sunday, that void has almost definitely been filled. Persistence is an all out 100% house music night brought to you by the well known CJ Costigan (his SoundCloud and Facebook…check it out) in the only venue that can sustain such an eclectic atmosphere - the legendary Tup Tup Palace (FacebookWebsite). 

With a stellar line up of pre bars that include the infamous Victoria 22, Label, Indigo and Spy Bar - not to mention the superb drink offers available at Persistence on the night itself, Sunday has definitely turned into the one day of the week you look forward to, rather than dread. 

So, how can you get guestlist? Persistence already offers an incredible standard entry price of £5 but it takes nothing but a quick word to get that down to £4. Even better, if you’re a trade worker, i.e. anyone that works in restaurants or bars in town, you can get this down even further to an unbeatable £3. It’s quite honestly the best way to end the week.  

Just send a text to 077429850142 or 07751359424, leave a message on the Persistence Facebook wall or even get in touch via the Persistence Twitter.

One night. 100% house music. Persistence at Tup Tup Palace. The only way to end the week.
