The sounds of the UK, along with British expats in NYC, found themselves a home away from home in the shape of Back to Life. The monthly club night was conceived to “bring a slice of London to NY”, infusing the dance floor with the best in garage, grime, broken beat, house, UK funk and soul.

The likes of Idris Elba, Little Simz, Nao, Daniel Kaluyya, Kindness, Daniel Bedingfield, and Just Blaze have all made appearances for special guest sets. The party, now in its 5th year, has always managed to capture the enigmatic energy of a grimy British club night and transplant it to the US.
