Can you believe it’s been one year since PULL UP had it’s first party at Ali Baba in Peckham?
It actually feels like yesterday when I was trapped at work dealing with a disgruntled customer an hour after I had finished work and worrying that I wouldn’t make it to PULL UP to setup in time. I did actually make it, I did drop some dubplates made especially for the party and I did enjoy the night no matter how frozen my fingers were as it was outside.
Fastforward to the present day and the lineup has changed slightly, we have a regular following of friends and family, it’s in my home town and no matter how congested life gets with work, relationships, creating, and having time to chill, PULL UP is still going strong despite the many setbacks along the way. I have no doubt that with the introduction of the Night Tube we’ll attract more people, new and old friends, and we endeavour to try out new things such as Guest DJs (this month Pharaoh G), spontaneous live performances, and merchandise (stickers this month).
A lot of hard work, dedication and energy goes into PULL UP, it’s a remarkable feat that we’ve got this far. It’s a joint venture between myself and Conrad Kira and we’ve encountered everything from a venue being closed a few nights before our event, thinly veiled racial discrimination after being given the go ahead to promote our party at a controversial venue, and trying our hardest to get people to come out of their houses and party with us in the cold, open, air or in a place that wasn’t originally on their radar. The struggle is ongoing and that’s why we’re dedicated to pushing on and remaining consistent as its still early days in our quest to build PULL UP into a household name that you can entrust to provide you with the best parties where you won’t find anyone looking at you weird because of who you are, where you’re from, what you’re wearing and how you dance. Everyone is welcome, we’re all inclusive, the only exclusion is bad intentions and negative vibrations!
Come as you are, all are welcome.
