After stretches from HAAi, Jasper James, and most recently Esa — who leaves next month — London’s Phonox is launching a hip-hop residency called Mantra.
The party launches on September 21st with residents Bossy LDN, Skinny Macho and Tommy Gold. The party will focus on both UK hip-hop and hip-hop from around the world.
Following the opening party, the residents will rotate through on a regular basis. And over the coming eight weeks, Mantra will feature guests like Pxssy Palace, Amy Becker, Emerald, Complexion and Taylah Elaine, with more DJs still TBA. For an early taste of Mantra, Phonox will host a preview party on Thursday, September 5th with Ejder.
House and techno will remain the focus at Phonox on Fridays and Sundays. It was recently announced that Ross From Friends will hold a four-week residency on Fridays in October.
