Substance Chrissy Rooftop Party – Dec 18th @ Terminus Hotel

Substance have just announced their next Rooftop party. Sadly it’s going to be the last event they run at the treasured Terminus Hotel as residential apartments are going up around the venue. With that in mind, plans were quickly put into place to run one last party. Those that made it to the last two Substance Rooftop parties will know what an awesome time to expect – those that missed out, this is your very last chance to experience the awesomeness that is a Substance Rooftop Party!

As it’s the last event at the Terminus I’ve decided to put together something special. My man Ru C.L, long time friend and extremely talented rhyme-smith, has agreed to come down and MC over a 2 hour breaks set. For those not familiar with Ru, his bio is included below. All you really need to know is that this man knows how to rock a crowd.

Anyway, for those keen to head down hit me up for tickets! But dont delay as our last event sold out.
Full deets below!!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, Especially at Substance HQ. Taran M is doing his best impersonation of Santa Claus, J-Slyde is spiking the Eggnog and with Simon Murphy and Rich OK rounding up the reindeer things are getting into the Christmas swing.

So it’s time to deck the disco ballz with booze, Slurp through the sounds in a one horse open sleigh and tell the three kings to take an afternoon off as The Substance Christmas party calls the first noel of Electronic music into effect.

The regular residents will be caroling all of their substance Classics along with some very special guests in what will be THE LAST ROOFTOP PARTY at the Terminus Hotel before the apartments of sin go live. So make a list, check it off twice and get your ass down to the Terminus Hotel on the 18th of December for the last Substance Party at the Terminus Hotel and we all know nobody rocks the rooftop like the Substance Crew!!!!
