Dave Jarvis’ Story


• Love Vinyl • Faith • Moton Records Inc

Over the years, Dave has worked for the major players in the music industry – Sony, EMI, Ministry of Sound, Pinnacle and Demon to name but a few.

Following on from the enormously successful joint compilation for Sony called HAPPY DAYS with Boy’s Own founder, Terry Farley, Dave has continued to release wonderful music for the past 20 years via his Moton Records label that he started with Diesel from X-press2. The latest release is The Divine Situation – Born Again which got the full 10/10 in DJ magazine and Mixmag.

In October 2015, Dave went back to his roots and became co-owner and director of Love Vinyl in Hoxton as well as starting a new vinyl imprint called The House of Love Vinyl with the first release of Eugene Record – Overdose of Joy – more milestone releases have followed.

Dave’s signature DJ style embraces his love of everything eclectic – from his own personal edits to forgotten floor fillers as long as they fulfil the Heavy Disco motto – Remember, Heavy Makes You Happy.

And they will.

Dave Jarvis, along with Ashley Beedle, will be joining the COR Fam Bank Holiday Sunday 27th May for the second in COR’s ‘Legends at the Lord’ series. An intimate soiree with just 160 tickets. Get your tickets here.

Get involved, join the event group.

Big Love

We’re playing at Farmfestival Somerset in Bruton at the end of July! Cracking weekend down in the west country. Some old friends of COR Bill Brewster and Greg Wilson are playing too as well as a ton of other top DJs and acts. Roots Manuva headlining. Very much looking forward to it. There’s about 40 of the Portsmouth contingent heading along, if you fancy a bit of it there are still a few tix left, but they’re running low and will sell out. Get involved, it really is a lovely time. Big Love.

COR Boxing Day Rave Up 2016


Boxing Day means so much more than cold meat, mashed potatoes and pickles, it means the annual COR boxing day bash.

You know the score by now, ambience, decor, chunky tunes and this year will be no exception as we host a cosy little bash back at the wonderful Coastguard Studio in Southsea.

In common with our policy of giving it back we are keeping tickets at £5 and we are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome special guests Soul Divide to join us. Dan Back and Sam Bylett have been flying the flag for the Portsmouth house scene with a fabulous catalogue of releases and highly acclaimed live performances on the festival circuit and recently at the Ministry of Sound. Check them here:

We will have a second room for some chill out vibes and look forward to sharing some quality festive spirit with our lovely friends. Tickets are available by clicking through

Have a love Christmas you lovely lot. See you at the front Boxing Day!

Big Love.

Not sure whether you’ve noticed but.. COR is back!

Yes, after a short break, we are embarking on a series of small intimate parties which take us back 8 years to our original COR values; hosting intimate parties playing great music to our friends, charging no more than £5, the proceeds going to good local causes and our guests being DJ & promoter friends and acquaintances who have trusted us to play at their events.

So, we kick off with a return to the fabulous Coastguard Studio and will be joined by our very special guests Beechfields, Simon & Steve Arnoldi, brothers who are best known for their amazing work as founding organisers of FarmFest. For any of you FarmFest aficionados out there, you’ll also know Simon from his wonderful sets under the ‘FarmFest DJs’ banner.

We will be setting this up with the main room hosted by Leon, Mark & Rosko plus Beechfields and we’ll be having a room 2 chill out zone where Hoody and Laming will be playing vinyl; Hoody doing his soul thing and Laming playing some yacht rock and AOR. We will of course be adding our customary touches with lighting and decor you’v come to know and love to create that good old COR atmosphere.

Contact Mark, Leon, Rosko, Hoody or Laming for tickets and please don’t hang around because we want all of our good friends there.  x
