About MiMo Events:
MiMo is a distinctive club night that was set up by a group of friends back in 2006. It encompasses the wide range of experience and skills that each of them had within the House Music scene. All of them had a common passion for high quality dance music and unforgettable clubbing experiences.
MiMo was launched in late December 2006 at one of London’s most prestigious clubbing institutions, ‘The Cross‘. Playing quality house music to the crowds, MiMo had created a party atmosphere that would become the norm for its future nights around London.
In 2007 MiMo established itself in some of London’s most respected clubs such as Turnmills, The Cross, Jamm and Aquarium. The year also saw MiMo gain monthly residency at ‘Mangos‘ in Reading, playing to a packed club into the early hours of Sunday morning. MiMo also had huge sucess playing at the ‘Slaang’ and ‘Tenax’ warehouse parties.
MiMo has always first and foremost been about the music, and this is reflected in their choice of DJs for their events. Seb Fontaine, Paul Harris, Jim Rivers, Island Knights, Mutiny, Deepgroove, Luke Dzierzek, Mistress Da Funk, and Tania Von Pear to name a few. Not forgetting of course the formidable MiMo residents. Between the 5 of them their knowledge of House, Electro and Techno, and their skills on the decks has earned them a reputation for a unique quality sound in the London dance music scene.
2008 has seen MiMo smash two parties at ‘The Island‘ in Charing Cross, as well as taking the roof off the prestigious Pacha and the brand new 54 (Mile End)! MiMo has a busy year ahead with a monthly residency at one of East London’s most established venues ’54’ in Shoreditch! MiMo has more London dates coming up, as well as playing to busy crowds at ‘Guarana‘ in Ibiza every week throughout the summer!
MiMo has only become what it is today because of the people who come to our nights. MiMo has always been about creating an experience rather than just another club night. An emphasis on quality production and decor, and of course music, has led to people coming back again and again, each time with more friends. MiMo boasts a fantastic crowd who know their music and know how to party. (Taken from the official MiMo Events MySpace page).
