NEW YEARS EVE 2018, A change of venue and a change of style, we held this years sell out event in the basement of an office license for a more intimate party than usual with a blacklight theme. We left make-up at hand for people to partake and it ended up on the walls. Seemingly a good time was had by all.
Its the end of 2017, a difficult year for many reasons, We opted for a post punk distopian aesthetic to send off the year in style with at twist on the name and concept of a typical NYE party. Our mid-night count down was conducted by post-punk poet ‘The Good For Nothing Poet’. Click on the image to view.
“SOMETHING UNREAL PRESENTS” Is the title we use for our nightclub events.
We design whole themes and then create artworks and installations around that concept. We enjoy making mini image led campaigns using a variety of methods to publish and distribute the ideas across the town and then the interior of the club. For the campaign we use we use paste-ups, street art, Gifs, augmented street signage, QR codes, badges and projections. For the event we use installations, seating area dressing, props, large scale printed boards, projections, icons, lighting and effects to create a visual led experience.

Creating events this way is about going back to where and how ZEROH first started working together– Djing and throwing parties in the North East in their University days and then in London and Brighton when they moved to the South Coast. During their first 15 years, through the 90’s, ZEROH had Saturday night residencies at the legendary Zap, The Escape Club and The Ocean Rooms in Brighton, The Back Bar in Soho and Scaramanga @ The Dogstar, Brixton where they played with the likes of Basement Jaxx, Herbert, Etienne D’Cracy, Cassius, Dimitri From Paris and Rob Da Bank. ZEROH also played numerous bars, parties, wrote about clubs, record reviews and had charts in DJ mag, Mixmag and Muzik, worked in independent record stores and put on their own club nights, for the last of which, in 2003, they had DJ Harvey as a resident, done, mostly, under the name ‘Aitch’. The parties have mostly been held at The Printworks a unique space, for Hastings, and a perfect environment for dancing, it opened in 2015 and is 7 years in the making, nestled down a New York style back alley in the aptly named America Ground. The 300+ capacity bar and club boasts a big loft style dancefloor space which acts as a blank canvas for each party and creates an amazing warehouse style party atmosphere. The first event was for new years eve 2015 followed by 4 parties the following year to celebrate the clocks going forward, the summer solstice, the clocks going back (Halloween) and new years eve 2016.
