LINE UP Popof Julian Jeweil Mladen Tomic Fabio Ferro Anthony Castaldo Marking the second Familia of 2019, Popof brings his Form imprint to the Middle Floor for a showcase with Julien Jeweil and Form affiliate Mladen Tomic on 16th February. French producer Popof is a widely known artist on the French electronic circuit and is considered one of the most respected artists to come from Paris. Releasing on a number of reputable labels from Turbo, Cocoon and many more, Popof is widely celebrated for work on his own outlet, Form, and brings the vision of Form to life on our Middle Floor. Blurring the lines between wavering techno and more up-front rhythms, Popof is set to bring a touch of French class to February's instalment of Familia. A highly tooted Drumcode album is set in stone in January for fellow French producer Julian Jeweil, who makes a well overdue visit back at the club. 'Transmission' LP is set to drop on 7th January, signifying a milestone in his production career. Commissioned remixes for Pete Tong, Sian, Pig & Dan and Joseph Capriati & more are all part of Julian’s revered discography, all of which helped to shape Julian’s profile as a hugely in-demand artist over the last few years. Having wrapped up his third EP on Form, Mladen Tomic completes the Middle Floor billing. A typical set from Mladen encompasses a range of tones, from powerful bass to groove-led rhythms. A fitting addition to the Form showcase alongside Popof and Julian, you can expect an inviting blend of warm techno to fit London's first Form showcase of 2019. Familiar faces to Familia, resident Fabio Ferro and Anthony + Castaldo soundtrack the Basement all night with a hefty collection of enticing techno between them.

The Kings Cross we knew 15 years ago is a very different place from the up and coming, regenerated hub it is today. Over a decade ago, Laurence Malice purchased a Victorian warehouse which was surrounded by virtually derelict wasteland, directly opposite one of the London’s worst housing estates looming just a stone’s throw away from the venue’s front door. In the aftermath of our 15th birthday celebrations with Radio Slave, FJAAK, Daniel Miller and lots more, we look back at the evolution of Egg LDN… After developing his legendary Trade brand from the scratch, the purchase of what was soon to be Egg LDN back in 1997 was the next project for Malice. With an aim to host legal parties that continued well into the early hours of the morning with an emphasis on the wellbeing of club goers (in addition to a strong booking policy), it became clear that London was lacking an indoor, fully legitimate space for those who wanted to carry on partying after 3am. It’s hard to believe that such draconian license laws were in place compared to the London we know today. Armed with a loyal crew comprised of Trade staff and a solid dose of determination, the previously disused warehouse was christened ‘Egg LDN’ to signify rebirth and a new chapter in both Malice’s life and London nightlife. Malice focused on a music policy which began to showcase emerging and long-running talent from the global electro and techno scene, with the likes of Joy Orbison, Chase and Status, Justice, Miss Kittin, Steve Bicknell and Jeff Mills cropping up in the Main Room during the early years. Despite the niche booking policy, it wasn’t all plain sailing. Due to the location of the club opposite a notoriously unruly estate, revellers were wary to spend their weekends in an area frequented by a few undoubtedly questionable characters. However, slowly but surely, Egg’s 24-hour license and multiple outdoor spaces attracted a loyal crowd who went on to spread the word about a new spot which hosted a plethora of house, techno and electro names from all over the world. As a result, it wasn’t long before Egg’s long-running sessions became legendary throughout the capital. Powering through the years of turbulent changes which could have knocked the club sideways, a slew of remarkable shifts on the electronic scene began to take hold. The introduction of the smoking ban in 2006, and the disappearance of iconic clubs between 2006 and 2013 - which included prominent spots such as The Key, Bagleys, The Church and The Cross - and a huge rehaul of Kings Cross were pinnacle events in the timeline of Egg LDN history, yet the combination of strong-willed team and an uncompromising roster of talent kept the club alive. Evolving with the changes of our time, the club itself is currently undergoing a major refurbishment, with a brand new Main Room, sound system and more all to be revealed later on this year. With such positive architectural adjustments already lined up this year amongst other surprises, it’s safe to say we’ll be around for another while longer.
