Glitterbox is celebrating 5 years and we went for a sneak preview of its never-before-seen shots by resident photographers and artwork creator Mark Wardel. The launch was held in Jealous Gallery in Shoreditch where Horse Meat Disco’s Luke Howard was spinning some Glitterbox style house, which is basically 21st-century disco, fun and awesomely gay. We just loved it.
*Wardel is a former Blitz Kid. His work has been commissioned and collected by David Bowie/Isolar New York City, Glitterbox/Defected Records, V&A museum, Daphne Guinness London, Soho House, Ministry Of Sound, Marc Almond, Kylie Minogue, Absolute Vodka, and Boy George.
Glitterbox has been growing exponentially over recent times, showing off what dance music should be like and creating atmospheres that sell out each show in advance. Run by the Defected Records crew, you know this spin off will have you spinning right round baby right round. If you want to get a feel of what this awesome party looks like make sure you head down to Jealous Gallery and check out the images with prints available for purchase.
If you’re heading down to Ibiza be sure to check out Glitterbox in what used to be Space and is now called Hï Ibiza. You will NOT be disappointed!
