In the face of a string of recent club closures in the UK capital, a new club called Phonox will open in Brixton this September.
Opening as a bar from 6pm and running into the later hours, the club, previously Plan B, promises a dancefloor, a single soundsystem, and one DJ all night long.
Andy Peyton, the director of XOYO and The Nest, is behind the project. He described his vision of the club as “a dancefloor full of people with smiles on their faces, not facing the DJ with camera phones at the ready, but enjoying the music for its own sake.”
Friday night bookings at the club will consist of a series of unannounced DJs who will take on an all night set. Saturday nights won't be about “big names” but rather about celebrating what's most important about club music, he says. Details of the club's Saturday resident will be announced on Monday 3rd August.
