Saturday night saw…well, there aren’t really any words.
So instead here’s a 50 second video roundup of the bat-shit-crazy-alternative-grownup-discotheque we put on at The Hare and Hounds the other night…
So that’s that!
Huge thanks to the fascinating Graham Dunning and his Mechanical Techno set, Antonio Roberts (aka HelloCatFood) for providing the mind-bending visuals, Rocky Steps for his incredible warm-up set for the main event – Steve Davis – what an unbelievable 3 hours of experimental party music he gave us!
And a huge thanks to The Hare and Hounds for hosting the event and including us in their 10th Anniversary Series!
We’re just about recovered.

Steve Davis – the legendary sporting phenomenon from the 80s who took snooker to new heights and as presenter of The Interesting Alternative Show on Phoenix FM brought prog and jazz oddities to his cult audience, now turns his hands to the decks. A real game changer: a real forward thinker.
Listen back to the archive of The Interesting Alternative Show:
We at Supersonic began to wonder about the science, the physics behind being both snooker champion and superstar DJ.
“Players should not be bound by principles generally laid down in previous books. If need be, they should experiment and find out if they can achieve their objectives in other ways.”
“What suits one player will not automatically suit another”.
“Discover the stance that works best for you and do not copy others. Try and focus on what is happening on top of the table and not what is happening beneath.”
From snooker, to turn, the table is a place Steve Davis is well on top of. He is certainly not bound by previously laid principles and experiments with an atypical approach to bringing the party.
It’s a hobby which he claims has spun out of control. His notorious 2016 Glastonbury set at the 500 capacity Stonebridge bar with partner in crime Kavus Torabi was mobbed by a curious turned shocked and enthralled crowd. With a packed out DJ diary since, Steve and Kavus have continued to woo party goers from Bluedot to Bloc Festival, from all around the UK to Thailand and beyond. Drawing from an eclectic array of influences: Magma, Caravan, Oscar Perry, Soft Machine and Gong to name but a few – Steve & Kavus spin together a unique set in their quest to deliver the music they love to lovers of the party.
