Radar: Discoteca Poca at Haus

If you believe the oft quoted statistics in the press, moving house is one of the most stressful activities you will undertake in life. Sometimes however, needs must, and so after two years in the intimate surroundings of The Hold, Discoteca Poca are packing up their record boxes and moving house. Or HAUS to be more precise.

Yep they’re off to Waxxx’s venue, located on Greenland Street in the increasingly popular Baltic Triangle. Speaking to Paul Hutchison, promoter and resident DJ of Discoteca Poca, he explained the thinking behind the move.

“We’re able to incorporate a light show and the use of haze machine to really create a clubbing atmosphere. Also we want to hang a massive disco ball to the roof, after all the name is Discoteca Poca.”

A change that involves more disco balls is a move for the better we say. It also makes sense for Discoteca Poca to move into Haus as Paul is one of the Waxxx crew – why pay rent somewhere else when you can party for free in your own gaff?

“We have had some amazing Waxxx parties in here as well as a handful of mUmU nights. We love the rustic warehouse feel to it with bare brick walls, open space, high ceiling”

First up on the agenda is a HAUSwarming party, obviously, so they’ve invited down Waze and Odyssey for the occasion. Making their Liverpool debut, W&O are an elusive duo who have been producing top quality house and garage slabs over the past 12 months. They’ve stepped up to the remix for Disclosure and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and have been lauded by Dusky amongst others.

Not too shabby really – when we moved house we just stuck on a copy of ABBA Greatest Hits and laced the punch with cheap vodka.
