Fizzy Gillespie B2B Mr Fitz

We are super stoked to be bringing together London’s Fizzy Gillespie and Bristol’s Mr Fitz to Altitude 23’ for an exclusive b2b four deck headline show. Hold tight!!

Fizzy Gillespie is a DJ & Producer best known for his mashup style, seamlessly sampling the sounds of musical eras from the past and crossing them over with modern beats and bass; being best known for his unique blend of Drum’n’Bass infused with 1920s to 70s samples! He is a vibe engineer and a purveyor of strictly good times. Fizzy is also known for his work as a promoter and programmer, working as Head of Music & Events for London based music venue Hootananny Brixton as well as being the founder of event brand and label, Swing & Bass.

Mr Fitz, is known to serve a mashup of Funk and Hip-Hop while dipping his tip into others genres such as Jungle, Breaks, Ghetto Funk and Drum and Bass. With some turntablism, nudity and scratches he’s capable of anything from a laidback l’ambiance to a drug fuelled barn dance.

Captain Flatcap

The Captain’s DJ sets are centred around Vintage Remix, fusing old school sounds of Swing, Funk & Disco with modern day Dance Music genres like House, Dubstep, Drum n’ Bass and other bass heavy genres. The Captain also incorporates live flute into his DJ sets!

Filthy Dirty DISCO

They are back!!! We’re really excited to see the return of the FDD Southwest DJ collective to Altitude 23’. They bring a much-needed injection of mixed-up, mashed-up, maxed out music wherever they go. With an indecent predisposition to genre-hopping, a disregard for purity and a party smashing attitude, prepare yourself for adulterated fun and serious dancing. Forged on the dancefloors of Devon, FDD bonded over a love of music and a desire to create their own party vibe wherever they play. A firm favourite of the festival circuit, 2022 saw them grace the decks at Glastonbury, Shambala, Beautiful Days and Lindisfarne festivals alongside their regular nights in Exeter. Filthy Dirty Disco deliver a locked in dancefloor, and hands-in-the-air atmosphere. Prepare to get filthy! FILTHY FUNK, DIRTY HOUSE AND DISCO-TECH
