4 To The Floor

Profile

4 To The Floor was born in the clubs of East London from a desire to connect the dots throughout the history of dance music. The collective consists of DJs, producers and dancers and aims to promote electronic music from around the world with an open and diverse approach to dance music culture.

Kengo, djsoulprovyder, Rickyboom and Jay Carder with roots in Japan, Jamaica, Portugal and UK respectively treat 4 To The Floor as a forum for global electronic music: from German techno to Angolan kuduro and Thai disco to Chicago house, their sound is a unique blend of 4/4 beats with roots in house, techno, garage, broken beat, disco and jazz.

Appealing to a versatile dance floor, their unique club nights engage a multi generational, racial and gendered crowd, emphasising the authentic connection with music. The high energy and dynamism this creates is unlike any other London club night. 4 To The Floor events are heavily populated by the house, hustle, vogue and funkstyle dance communities, with whom they are internationally linked. They have hosted DJs such as Henry Wu, Rainer Trueby, Shuya Okino, Kiko Navarro, Aroop Roy and Osunlade.

Furthering their influence on underground music culture, their weekly radio show at Soho Radio (Wednesdays 22:00-00:00), has seen the likes of Peven Everett, Boddhi Satva, Atjazz and many other key players in the scene through its doors. The radio show also offers a platform to explore a whole spectrum of music that is not focussed solely on the dance floor.
