Occult is the innovative new clubbing experience fusing the best in house and techno music alongside state of the art production.
Occult parties will give people the chance to be a part of something, a haven for people to come together and enjoy quality electronic music, providing escapism within a friendly and energetic atmosphere/environment.
A party is only as good as the crowd it attracts and through our line-up selection we aim to attract a diverse crowd with an open minded attitude and passion for underground electronic music. This isn’t a night for posers, this is a night that is all about sharing the best in techno and house music and people enjoying themselves.
Through Occult’s line-ups we will be adopting a diverse and varied music policy that will allow us to create a night which is both exciting and entertaining.
Occult’s diverse and varied music policy will be the driving force of creating a night that excites and entertains. One thing we definitely won’t be doing is hiring a DJ solely for their name as an easy way to draw a crowd. Our main focus is on presenting a strong lineup that will demonstrate real talent. Occult will be putting together unique line-ups that will bring together a mixture of emerging talent as well as bringing to London some of Techno’s most established and defining DJs and producers. We feel such a collaboration of artists will give the party a dynamic energy and buzzing atmosphere.
Our launch party will take place under the railway arches of London Bridge at Crucifix Lane. The club is located a short distance to the east of London Bridge station, housed inside of two railway arches, making for a warehouse feel throughout. The club features two bars and a full-sized stage with music supplied via a Nova line array sound system.
We are very pleased to announce Panorama Bar resident and Cocoon DJ André Galluzzi as the headliner for our launch party.
The Frankfurt born DJ has a career spanning 20 years in which time he has held residencies at some of Germany’s most famous clubs including Tresor and Ostgut (the previous club of the well known Berghain). André has become quite famous for his intoxicating 10 hour sets in venues such as Amnesia Ibiza and the world renowned Panorama Bar where he now holds a residency.
André has also had a prolific career as a producer boasting a long list of solo projects and collaborations with artists such Guido Schneider, Dana Ruh and Paul Britsch on such established labels as Ostgut Ton, Cadenza, Cocoon and and Highgrade. André also has his own label ARAS-music which he co-runs with Dana Ruh.

Our second headliner is native Berliner Todd Bodine. Strongly influenced by the atmosphere created after the fall of the Berlin wall, he earned his reputation as a resident DJ at the world famous Tresor Club, a place where he performs his dynamic monthly DJ sets, even today. His career as a DJ has allowed him to play on some of the most internationally renowned dance floors in Barcelona, Paris, Tokyo and Rio de Janeiro, to name a few.
Over the years Todd has also built himself an impressive musical portfolio as a producer. Releasing on some of house and techno’s most defining labels including Cabinet Records, Morris Audio, Highgrade, Tresor, Claude Von Stroke’s Mothership label and Sub Conce. Todd has also achieved a rare goal in electronic music of three full studio albums: “Different Engines” (2005) on Morris Audio, followed by “Surfaces” one year later on Tresor and “Forms” in 2009, his first album for Highgrade Records.
Todd also works as co-label boss at Highgrade recordings, taking care of A+R, as well as coordinating projects like the now legendary Highgrade parties at Berghain and Panorama Bar.

The/Das first sprung to life in 2012 with their Fresh Water EP, released on Italy's cutting edge dance label Life And Death. Collaborating with Life And Death's Tale Of Us - one of the world's hottest techno acts - they released two remixes for Me And My Drummer that caught the attention of the press and their peers all over Europe. Off the cuff, with these tracks The/Das presented a remarkable draft of laid-back, reserved, highly impelling techno music with love for every detail.
The/Das previously played together with Bodi Bil a band under which they released four albums together and built a considerable fan base in their native Germany.
The/Das prove to be one of the leaders and innovators of their genre, showcasing their pop sensibilities as they did with Bodi Bill yet with an edgy toned down vibe.
