“And then there was the Disco Shed. It will be a thing of legend, I’m sure: one shed, two blokes, mixing decks and a glittery disco ball. There were plant pots and garden gnomes, all on a little hill where countless people danced well into the night. It was truly magical how good that little shed and the music emanating from it made everyone feel.”
An incredible visual/audio show of music mash ups and synchronised music videos. "They've saved the mash-up/bootleg from the cheesy ghetto it was fast sliding into by being wittier, more eclectic and just more audacious than anyone else, AND done it with skill. They're better than your favourite DJs"
