Warm up for the launch of Lycra with our 80s disco playlist from Mikey Snooze

The 1980s aerobics dance party launches at Thekla this month

DJ Mikey Snooze Lycra interview

After a roaring debut in London and ahead of a string of festival appearances for 2018 including Green Man, Boomtown and Latitude, Lycra will be bringing their outrageous 1980s aerobics dance party to Thekla. Not only will the team be blasting classic 80s bangers, but aerobics instructors will be leading 10 minute dance classes throughout the night – so have your leotards at the ready.

You may already recognise Mikey Snooze from Thekla’s weekly Pop Confessional parties, but the London-based DJ also holds down residencies in Camden’s Koko and Soho’s Borderline. He’s played alongside the likes of Jungle, Hot Chip, Metronomy and A. Skillz and is an alumni of most major festivals.

For a taste of what’s to come, Mikey Snooze has put together a 80s disco playlist that’s perfect for a retro workout, getting you in the party sprit, or just generally putting you in a really excellent mood.  Listen below for 50 minutes of absolute classics, including Prince, Kim Wilde and Human League.
