House | Friday 1st April 2016 | Rosh

Homostash’s head honcho Tafkanik gives us the lowdown on his London hot spots ahead of this Saturday’s Berlin Berlin party at Egg Ldn where Homostash go head to head with the Pornceptual performers in The Loft, where elsewhere Berlin’s Chalet Club, Sisyphos Club and Save Us Records crews takeover aided by wild performances from Marnie Scarlet, Beatrix Carlotta, Ruby Bird, Syban and Cynth Icorn. All info at www.egglondon.co.uk.

Founder of Homostash at Dalston Superstore as well as resident DJ at Le Coq at East Bloc, Tafkanik has performed at Glastonbury Festival as well as gracing a variety of London clubs such as Dalston Superstore, East Bloc, Vogue Fabrics, Moustache Bar, Magic Roundabout and The Shed. His distinctive sound is influenced by tech house, techno, IDM and Italo disco. 

 

My favourite record shop is because …

Rough Trade East, because it’s iconic and I keep on spotting Homostash posters there. 

My favourite clothes shop is because…

I am not a big fan of shopping for clothes, butI prefer boutiques and vintage shops when I have to. 

My favourite club is… 

De Trut in Amsterdam, because all the profits go to a good cause and you are not allowed to use your mobile which makes the nights more social. I know Berghain in Berlin also operate a no photos/phone policy too.  

My favourite club night is…

My own night, Homostash! 

 If I could DJ with any celebrity (musical or non musical) it would be…

Bjork please.

The song that reminds me most of London is…

'Why Does It Always Rain On Me? by Travis. I heard it on a bus the first time I visited London 16 years ago.

When I’m in a bar I drink…

Polish vodka.

My favourite pub/bar is… 

Bloc Bar and the bar at Dalston Superstore!

My favourite restaurant is…

Little Georgia Cafe near Haggerston Park. I love Georgian food and culture!

If I want a little peace and quiet when I’m in London...

I sit on my balcony and watch the city. 

The best area of London is…

Clerkenwell, and that’s why I live there. It’s central but yet close to the East vibe that I love. I can also walk or take the bus almost everywhere which is great as I am not a big fan of the tube. 

If I could change one thing about London…

I would put it by the sea and would make the climate a bit warmer. But that’s actually two things.

One thing everyone should do in London is

Come to party at Homostash!
