Velvet Underground presents a night like no other with VUtopia, a new series of Thursday parties fashioned especially for clubbers to 'jump the gun' and kick-start their weekend revelry just that little bit earlier. Aimed to celebrate the spirit of collaboration and the meeting of creative minds, VUtopia is the ideal platform to showcase the best talent in their own respective fields be it music, fashion, design, art or photography. With eclectic musical collaborations between Zouk resident DJs and invited guests, helming the decks back to back and adding another decibel of dance floor pandemonium, expect a gamut of vibrant sounds and raucous fun with VUtopia!
October 8th's exciting installment features Druzzi from The Rapture. Their raucous breakthrough single, House Of Jealous Lovers, off their Echoes album, united techno and indie kids in one sweaty dancefloor mess, setting the pace for indie/dance crossovers worldwide. "With so many hip people in the studio, it's no wonder Echoes sounds like such
a party," said Blender magazine.
Following up in 2006 with the album 'Pieces Of The People We Love', The Rapture cemented their reputation as the trend-setting new breed of punk-funk, dipping into their love of house music to emerge with a riot of live pop-funk and psychedelic party-forward sounds.
