The Illustrious Society

Love Dose Records founder Efenar is happiest seeing a dance floor full of joyful smiling faces and has dedicated the past 25 years to making this happen.

The success of the early parties in Lancashire goes back to the late 90s with a string of under-the-radar DIY raves making their way over to Manchester by the mid 00s. Sankeys, Hidden, and The White Hotel are notable highlights of the Efenar journey but it's the back street Cheetham Hill warehouse parties that have become stuff of legend.

Having supported the likes of Derrick Carter, Prosumer, Jeremy Underground, Move D, and Chez Damier the forward looking acid, afro, electro, and italo elements of this DJ's set are firmly underpinned by a house music sound that is clearly and beautifully retrospective.
