It's only been a couple of years since Peggy sprung onto the scene and what an eventful couple of years it's been. With a string of incredible DJ sets for Mixmag, Boiler Room, NTS and a cheeky FACT mix thrown in its been an absolutely insane ride to where she's at now. As well as her recorded mixes, she's been firing out her own productions consistently delivering high quality fodder for her incredible DJ sets.

Locarno Christmas

The Locarno boys, Red & Steven, plus our cameo crew of Reuben and Max will once again bring their alternative slice of 50s & 60s (and a little 70s) music to the Small Town Club BUT we’ll be throwing in the finest Christmas tunes from the good old days in the mixer too. Locarno will start up at 10:30pm and we'll be throwing down some early chilled tunes, having a little relaxed hour or so...THEN our Dj's will bring out the big gun floorfillers to get everybody moving right on through to the other side of 3am...
