DJ, producer, and writer Tope Olufemi, also known as Worko, has started a new club night in London. The name of this event is Happy Survival and its purpose is to open up a space for Black artists.
The club nights will highlight Black artists and promote their work in order to create a platform for them to develop their craft.
Speaking on the new club night, Worko stated, “For Black artists and DJs without label support or huge co-signs, it can be difficult to carve out a space for yourself and find a way to commit to your practice. I hope that Happy Survival can somewhat contribute to the flattening of the playing field, creating a platform for Black artists to find their feet, experiment and find an audience.”
The Glove That Fits also hosts a night called WET DREAMZ, dedicated to the voice of queer and femme artists.
But not all of their nights have been a rousing success as The Glove That Fits was recently on the dance music scene’s radar due to their AI Rave where the music was played by the app Mubert instead of a real DJ.
The flyer can be viewed below and tickets to Happy Survival’s first event are still available here.
