Since opening their doors in 2017, London's multi-purpose venue Printworks has grown into the clubbing mecca that the capital so badly needed. Comprised of six vast event spaces, all arranged over multiple levels with a maze of corridors and rooms, the venue has kept the original machinery and industrial features from its time as a fully operational printing press – the Press Halls are also fully soundproofed and were once western Europe’s largest print facility.
With an opening season which boasted performances from Nina Kraviz, Ben Klock, Hot Since 82 and Daphni, and parties from Snowbombing, The Hydra, Paradise and RAM – Printworks fast gained recognition as a space providing the best in electronic music in London. Now moving into their 2018 Autumn/Winter series, EARMILK have hand picked six performances that you can't miss this season.
Mosaic by Maceo, 6th October 2018 – Danny Daze b2b Anthony Parasole
Featured previously in EARMILK, Mosaic curated by Maceo Plex is heading to Printworks in a techno storm. With the likes of Maceo, Ellen Allien and Len Faki in the print halls, Room 2 will play host to a highly anticipated b2b with Danny Daze and Anthony Parasole – two American DJs with a reputation for providing the very best in hard hitting, all consuming techno and electro.
Smirnoff Equalising Music, 13th October 2018 – Honey Dijon
From her phenomenal Sugar Mountain Boiler Room to sets at legendary stronghold Berghain, Honey Dijon is the queen of all things house, techno and disco – joining the likes of The Black Madonna, Artwork, Peggy Gou and Mella Dee at Smirnoff's Equalising Music Presents. Launched in 2017, the Smirnoff Equalising Music initiative began a three-year global project to escalate the gender parity in the music industry by 2020.
The Hydra Presents, 27th October 2018 – Jacques Green
With prior Hydra shows at Printworks noted as some of the best the venue has hosted, they return this season with not one but four showcases – with performances in the pipeline from Mount Kimbie, Todd Terje and Detroit house legend Moodymann. On the 27th October, Jacques Green will play Printworks Press Halls alongside Jeremy Underground and Romare. The Canadian DJ and Producer released his long awaited album Feel Infinite in 2017, a testimony of his abilities to blend genres, creating completely original and authentic sounds.
Tale Of Us present Afterlife, 24th November 2018 – Adriatique

With ten years of experience working together as DJs and producers Adrian Shala and Adrian Schweizer, aka Adriatique, are the masters at curating relentless and hypnotic sets for a fully immersive experience. They duo join Tale Of Us, Recondite and Agents Of Time at the event on 24th November.
The Hydra Presents, 15th December 2018 – Jeff Mills
After multiple requests and pleas, The Wizard Jeff Mills will headline the final Hydra party at Printworks.
