“Dancing is a form of expression at the best of times but dancing in the dark to loud music can be liberating, life changing and primal in ways you could never imagine”
When not out running the streets with his urban run collective Run Dem Crew, teaching Yoga or advocating mental health and wellness amongst his peers Charlie Dark can be found playing records to dance floors across the globe.
Raised in South London on a diet of pirate radio and warehouse parties Charlie has been spinning records and igniting dance floors since the early eighties. From his time on Mo Wax records with Attica Blues in the 90’s, a major label deal on Sony Records and the plethora of remixes and productions Deejaying and bringing people together has been at the heart of everything he’s gone onto achieve. If you ever caught his Blacktronica Parties, sets at the legendary Plastic People or listened to his radio shows then you’ll know that ‘All forms of music in one room the way it used to be’ has always been his motto and his record crates run deep.
With a vast record collection spanning various genres his predominately vinyl sets are known for their eclecticism spanning Dub to Disco to House, Funk, Soul Reggae, African gems and beyond. Uplifting, energy filled genre jumping sets, classic rotary mixers, quality sound, hosted by a selector who always brings the joyful vibes.
