High & Jive's recent offering of clubbing prestige came in the form of the Oliver Twist Party held at Provenance nightclub in Southampton. Named after the D'Banj hit single released earlier in 2012, and the Original Oliver Twist musical, it was a student club event aimed squarely at danchall and Afobeats enthusiasts.
To help spread the word onine, we put together this mini mix giving an idea of what music to expect on the night:
It starts with a bespoke mashup produced by DJ Sunny P (known as SEEKA to the clubs). This consists of samples from The original Oliver Twist musical including the timeless singalong - "I'd Do Anything", and Lumidee's dancehall classic - Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh) Ft Busta Rhymes.
the mix then transitions into uptempo afrobeats/UK Funky/Dancehall vibes at large with thunder clapping beats by the likes of Wizkid, Donaeo, Sean Paul, Atumpan, Devolution and many more.
This was a music focused club event unlike typical student parties pushing cheap drink deals. So it was important to promote it by exposing the musical exclusivity of the event.
We also helped promote the event inside Southampton Solent University's main restaurant 'The Dock'. Setting up mobile DJ gear with decks and speakers before jamming out the tunes that people can expect to hear on the night.
On The night the music policy varied in between token student club tunes and the afore mentioned urban club sound. Needless to say, It went down a storm!
