*The Blurb*

This summer was a crazy one COR for sure- we guested, we hosted, we danced, we partied- starting with our Easter party with the ever excellent Ray Mang, through to some great spots in Brighton, our own incredible tent at Farm Festival, a jam packed pop-up party for Southsea Fest and ending with the awesome closing party of the Champagne Bar (surely one of THE success stories of the year for the city), we had a riotous time. We played alongside some wicked guests and were joined by a cast of literally thousands of you! Now we’ve had a bit of time to reflect, we’ve each crafted an individual mix of some of our biggest tunes of the season. We’ll be releasing them over the coming weeks, then at the end we’ll be bringing you news of our infamous Boxing Day shindig…… watch this space.

Hope you’ve enjoyed our little mix series. Details of our Boxing Day knees up landing next week. Get to know

Big Love.

August Bank Holiday Sunday

August Bank Holiday Sunday is almost upon us! And with no work on Monday it would be a terrible shame not to have a little bank hol Sunday smash. 

So the lovely people at The-Wine Vaults, Albert Rd, Southsea have got themselves a 2am licence and invited me along to play some tunes. They’re just having a refit there at the mo, so this will also double up as a bit of a relaunch party too. 

Underground disco and house from 8pm til 2am. Hope you can make it along!


Wine Vaults Bank Holiday Relaunch Party!
Sunday 26th August
8pm til 2am

Hope you can make it!

Weekly Champagne Bar at Southsea Castle


I’ll be playing some deep tunes each week at Southsea Castle’s new Friday night champagne bar. 6-9pm. 

Come rain or shine, this wonderful historic Portsmouth landmark will be lowering it’s draw bridge and inviting you all in for a well deserved end of week tipple throughout the summer months. If champagne is not your thing there is plenty more to choose from at their well stocked bar, as well as some absolutely delicious, lovingly prepare nibbles should feel a little peckish. 

If the weather is good you can chill in the beautiful courtyard and if it’s not so good the you can enjoy your end of week treat in the inviting and cosy bar itself. The perfect place to hide away from the elements and enjoy a drink and some tasty tunes. 

So if you’re looking for post-work wind down or a pre-nightout warm up, why not pop down and get involved with something a little different. 

Hopefully see you there. 

Big Love.

COR Moments Album


Hello COR Scallies and Disco Bunnies, hope all is peachy with you all.

It been a long time coming, but it’s finally here – We’ve launched our very own COR mix Album!

We wanted to put something together between the 7 of us that not only mean something to us but would also help sum up the essence of COR journey thus far. … So, we each picked two of our favourite all time tracks (not an easy job at all I can tell ya!) and handed them to Mr ‘Uncle Welshy’ Windsor to take into the studio to mix up a storm.

After numerous visits studios and one completed album that we decided to bin as it didn’t quite meet our rigorous COR quality control (it was good but not quite good enough!) we finally have a completely polished, COR approved 1hrs 19mins and 48sec disco journey for your personal delectation and delight, straight from the hearts of the COR Family.

This is not your straight forward mix album, oh no. Many hours of production have been lovingly poured into the making of this, including a number edits and reworks to harmoniously pull the wide spanning reach of the tracks in the playlist together. Leon, you’ve done a sterling job sir. We hope you like what you hear.

We’ve put the Moments album together to try and sum up the last two years of COR and our journey so far. Because of this, we decided the album artwork should reflect this too.

Every single element of the album artwork has been used before in the making of COR. Whether it’s been part of our posters, flyers, back drops, stage props, projections, badges, stickers, signs, tees or our website, you will have seen these featured characters and elements before somewhere at COR.

The album cover art also comes complete with a commentary expertly word smithed by our very own COR mixing boy Leon Windsor, giving you a run down of the tracks and reasons from the COR selectors as to why they decided to choose the tracks they did for inclusion on the album.

The launch party for our Moments album was Saturday 25th Sept and was just brilliant. We made it only a 100 capacity event in the vein of the intimate soirées we started our COR with. Every ticket purchased got a free copy of the album on the night, so plenty of smiling faces. The event sold out in two days.

Thanks to you all for the on going support and general awesomeness. We are so lucky to have a loyal supporting following, you really are the best crowd on the south coast. COR would be nothing without you and your support and good vibe make us want to make it even better everytime for you. COR loves you.

Big Love.
