Back To Your Roots NYE
DJ Ellis Dee
Entry Requirements: All Ages
Having rocked Ramsgate Music Hall to its foundations in October with a sold-out launch party, the Back To Your Roots team are back with a bang to welcome in 2018!
Our last headliner Billy Daniel Bunter had such a great time that he shared the hype with another old skool legend so we’re blessed with a very special guest to celebrate New Years Eve…
Ellis Dee needs no introduction to UK underground dance fans and his pedigree speaks volumes:
Setting up one of London’s first weekly acid house clubs ‘Rave In The Cave’ in 1988, he went on to headline the notorious M25 orbital raves which shook the establishment. Becoming one of the scene’s headliners alongside legends; Paul Oakenfold, Mr C, Colin Faver, Grooverider and Fabio, Ellis Dee spearheaded the evolution of acid house into rave with sets across the UK and on original pirate radio station Sunrise FM which announced the location of events across Southern England which saw thousands meeting up at rendezvous points before heading off in the legendary convoys to find the party…
By 1992, Ellis Dee was at the forefront of the UK’s hardcore rave movement and performed at the biggest all night events of that legendary summer including Fantazia, Perception and that epic set at Universe which inspired a generation of bedroom DJs.
As the hardcore tracks got faster and darker, he moved with the times and dropped the first proto-jungle and drum & bass bombs during sets at the massive World Dance raves at Lydd airport in Kent which have become rave folklore!
Still playing out every weekend across the UK and still keeping the old skool spirit well and truly alive, we’re very proud to welcome Ellis Dee to room one where he’ll be playing across the midnight hour on New Years Eve.
The capacity of this intimate award-winning venue is very limited and we have a very rare 4am license. Expect a friends and family vibe as the team invite their crew to come celebrate the start of a new year across two rooms… once tickets are gone, they are gone so don’t miss out!!
