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.

The COR Fam.

PS. Let us know you’re coming here.


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

All the dets on the event page. Get to know and get involved.

Big Love.

Wake Up, We Need Each Other : COR Boxing Day 2015


It’s traditional, COR on a boxing day, we love to have our annual shindig with our special group of wonderful friends in the heart of Southsea.

This year we take you back to the scene of one of our favourite parties as we return to The Kings pub in Albert Road. As always we’ll have the run of the entire place with Audio Feed’s superb Funktion 1 sound system upstairs and downstairs.

This year we are blessed and honoured to have as special guest a true legend of the scene, an Ibiza pioneer who is widely acknowledged as one of the finest house and balearic DJs on the planet, the fabulous Nancy Noise. We are so excited to have Nancy join us as we know she is going to love the COR crowd and enjoy the COR vibe. 

Check out the great interview Faith did with Nancy here:

And check this out from Oi Polloi, a great mix Nancy put together, full of balearic sunshine:

And finally check this, it’s fabulous:

As always we’ll do a transformation job on the venue but you already knew that, eh.

Check out the COR Tickets website on for all the ticket info and be the first to bag yours now. Just 250 tickets will be available, and being boxing day they will fly. Get involved, don’t miss out and then we’ll all be very happy.

Hope everything else is cool in your world. Hopefully see you at the front soon!

Big Love.

COR and their amazing Americas Cup All Dayer.

ac-flyer-01-web1000COR and their amazing Americas Cup All Dayer.

In the time honoured tradition of pop up parties this is definitely one of COR’s best ever.

Not only have we lined up the Pyramids Terrace for our alfresco balearic beano but as if the solent scenery is not enough we’ve arranged for the Americas Cup yacht race to provide the panoramic backdrop for our soundtrack.

We cast off at 1pm with an afternoon of beautiful balearic beats before picking up the pace with an array of dubbed out disco and house as the sun sets.

We will have a chef on BBQ duty all day with fresh fish, butchers quality meat, and veggie options and of course we’ll have a well stocked bar and some surprise sunshine cocktails. The COR residents will be digging into their reserves of esoteric chill, yacht rock and balearic vibes, spinning tunes on rotation.

So, get the deck shoes on, pack the sun cream and treat yourself to a place on the terrace for some blissed out balearic times. No admission charge just get there early for a deckchair.

Big Love.

The COR Fam.
