Deviation, the party spearheaded by Radio 1 DJ Benji B and Judah, was launched back in October 2007 and currently holds a residency at XOYO in London on the first Friday of every month. Earlier in the year Deviation switched it up as Benji B was chosen to be one of XOYO’s revered residents in the quarterly series, which saw the energy and excitement captured at every Deviation party take over Saturdays instead of Fridays for 12 weeks.
Having now moved back to Fridays at XOYO, Deviation is getting ready to celebrate its 8th birthday. Over the years the birthday has welcomed the likes of Just Blaze, Theo Parrish Sampha, Moodymann, Dam Funk, Hudson Mohawke and Kode 9 to name just a few, with this years line up being promised to blow all previous years out of the water.
The programme for this years 8th anniversary is yet to be announced, however tickets are on sale now for those who can’t wait and know that, no matter whoever is playing, it will be one hell of a celebration.
