FOUND: HORROR SERIES- Born & Bred Halloween- Review

The line up was what sold the night to me the most, but closely followed by the venue description which got me curious when reading the line 'body kinetic dance floor'. Was this just some kind of gimmick? I went to find out.

Upon arrival to Building Six, at the 02 Peninsula Greenwich, I was pleasantly surprised by its size. The place was huge, which at the start of the night was rather noticeable with it not being filled to capacity, however after a couple of hours, once the placed packed out and the vibes had set in, we were good to go.

Klashnekoff played a good set, with the crowd singing along to some of his classic tracks and a lot of energy from the stage. Things really got live, in my opinion, when Faze Miyake took to the decks. It was only then that I felt the wrath of the venue description mentioned above, with the bass from Faze's grimey beats literally going through my feet and up throughout my whole body. It was an odd feeling, but also a pretty cool experience.

Cooling off in the outside terrace was an experience in itself and not only for the size aspect. Sweaty zombies and skeletons took over and filled the seats that lined the outskirts of the area and revellers that needed the fresh air took to the centre bar for refreshment. It was quite nice to see how many people had made the effort to dress up for Halloween, even if it was just a few drips of fake blood.

Back inside, both room 1 and 2 had filled out a little more. The only shame was the suspended sky bridge above the dance floor was closed but I soon forgot my disappointment when Slimzee took to the stage.

Overall the night was a hit. The security weren't d***s, the line up was on point and the venue was immense. Roll on the next Born & Bred event!
