How Does It Feel To Be Loved? Virtual Dance Party
Saturday March 28th, 9pm-2am - Please start the mix at 9pm!

Following last Saturday's Virtual Disco, in which we live streamed a set of indie pop and soul (and were joined by friends in Japan, Norway, America, Canada, Australia, Brazil, France and more), we're doing it all over again on Saturday night. So please stock up on your favourite tipple, push your furniture to the walls, turn up the volume, and join us for another night of dancing, friendship, connection, community and fun.

We're very pleased that we'll be joined this week by Stuart Murdoch of Belle & Sebastian, who has put together an hour guest DJ for us. The running order for the night is as follows:

Ian HDIF - First two hours
Stuart Murdoch - Guest set for 1 hour 2 minutes
Ian HDIF - Final two hours

First song from the mountain goats. I'm going to make it through this year if it kills me. Great choice. Just lifted my spirits. Thanks.


Great stuff - many thanks for the mix - keeping the spirits up - stay safe all


Absolutely wonderful, Ian. It’s difficult to put into words how much you’ve lifted my spirits tonight. Same time next week?

How Does It Feel To Be Loved?

Thank you! Yes - same time next week. Our guest DJ next week is Stephin Merritt. Woo!

Ellen Leerburger

Sooooo much fun, Stuart. Thank you from New York, where we need every bit of uplifting virtual dancing we can! <3
