Watch Erol Alkan's set live from Printworks, London, celebrating 25 years of Bugged Out, filmed by DJ Mag.
'Last night was quite an emotional ride, Bugged Out has been central to me as a Dj since they gave me my first break in room 3 at Fabric. 18 years later, we are still together and it feels like everything and nothing has changed, simultaneously.
I played a 'Bugged In Selection' set earlier in the back room (thank you to everyone who stuck with me, considering there were virtually no drums in my set and the lure of dance music in the main room, I am very grateful to all who stay and swayed) but really wasn't prepared for the rush of what playing a space like Printworks truly brings. It's certainly the only time I'll feel like I'm momentarily living inside of a Ridley Scott movie.
Our friends at Dj Mag were on hand to record the entire set, which you can watch again over on my Facebook page or YouTube.
Wishing Bugged Out a very happy 25th birthday.
Viva Acid House' - Erol Alkan
