Nothing has changed at the most legendary club in France during the last 12 months. And why should it? Let’s start with the basics. One of the oldest venues on the nocturnal map, with a past that goes back further than the 28 years of electronic music Laurent Garnier jump-started, Rex Club is a mecca for Parisians and global clubbers in the know.
The proud home of nights such as Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant, D’Julz’s Bass Culture, Deeply Rooted — lead by DJ Deep — and the Didier Allyne and Phil Weeks soiree, Get Underground, based on residents alone — which also include Djebali, Chloe, Ivan Smagghe, Seuil and Le Loup — you could happily come here week in, week out, and never get bored. This is before we mention the constant stream of major guests — Seth Troxler, Lil’ Louis, Derrick May, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Ellen Allien, Apollonia, Mr. G, Peter Van Hoesen, and Matias Aguayo to name but a handful from recent times. Still one room only, still sporting a mighty D&B system so everyone can hear everything crystal-clear, no matter where they are inside, its status as a permanent fixture on our Top 100 Clubs list should surprise nobody.
