Ministry of Sound is an iconic institution at the heart of British dance music culture. Over the past 30 years, Ministry of Sound has become a dominant force in British dance culture, releasing hundreds of famed compilations, throwing thousands of parties and boasting a long list of commercial hits, from Sigala to DJ Fresh, London Grammar to Doja Cat.
We caught up with the team to find out more about their pop-up...
Tell us about yourself...
In 1991, our club doors opened for the first time in a derelict bus garage in South London, inspired by New York’s legendary Paradise Garage.
In the mid-1990s, we launched our record label, specialising in compilations, DJ mixes and dance artists. Over the next three decades, the label has become a household name in dance music and continues to define its legacy with huge commercial success.
The current records roster includes London Grammar, Sigala, Doja Cat, Franky Wah, Disciples & many more. In the past year, singles released through the label include Regard, CamelPhat, Oliver Heldens & Riton, AVH & Riva Starr, Solardo, Diplo & Paul Woolford.
Alongside hit dance records, we are one of the UK's leading curators in the digital playlist space. With over 60 playlists on Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer we provide the soundtrack for every occasion. Whether you want to party, chill, holiday, work or work out - we got you!
