THE MOUSETRAP celebrates its 24th Birthday on 28 Feb 2015 at the same venue with the same owner which is an incredible feat in the fickle World of club land, the friendly and family atmosphere at MOUSETRAP is something we are very proud of here so expect a warm welcome. Huge thanks to the regulars and thousands of visitors over the years who will testify that MOUSETRAP generates an atmosphere like no other. For those who have never been here is a little bit about the venue, a basement club with low ceiling, kicking soundsystem, wooden dancefloor with seating booths around the edge, a cloakroom and air conditioning.
The club started life in the basement and quickly moved onto two floors with the SOUL LOFT and BEAT BASEMENT with its checked dancefloor and spiral staircase connecting the two floors. The club prospered for over a decade in this format before the ground floor was sold and we returned to the basement with alternate dances for the different music styles each month up to the present day.
Over these two decades the Mousetraps music has been prolific with an abundance of new scene discoveries filtering up to the scene weekenders and festivals with global appeal, sometimes filtering into the mainstream media via TV and Radio adverts.
In 1997 the MOUSETRAP label was born with a free 45 for each customer every anniversary. On one side of the disc you will find a song from the ‘R&B dances’ and on the flipside a tune from our ‘Fuzz for Freaks’ playlist. Some of these early releases are now commanding big money in their own right and in some cases almost as much as the original release.
See below a list of all the MOUSETRAP releases.
I’d like to say a special thanks to all the regulars who supported us down the years and huge gratitude must go to the resident DJ’s who helped me shape the MOUSETRAP soundtrack
SPEED, CHRIS DALE, LEE MILLER, GAV EVANS, NICK HUDSON, PID, JACK WHITE
plus the many quality guests from all over Europe who have played a blinder over the last twenty three years.
