Starting off 2014 in generous style, Birmingham’s long running House club Habit are back for a free party at The Bull’s Head (Moseley) tonight – Sat 18th Jan.
Headlining will be Paul Thomas, the Birmingham DJ/Producer who cut his teeth at Godskitchen and Global Gathering.
Now a regular bill at events worldwide, including continued involvement with the international Global Gathering behemoth, Thomas is one of the city’s more prominent DJ success stories (and a thoroughly decent chap).
But recent years have seen Paul Thomas’ productions stand high on their own too, releasing through a barrage of reputable labels including SIZE, Doorn, Toolroom, Funk Farm & UltraViolet – Thomas’ own home grown imprint.
Playing alongside Paul Thomas in the Habit main room (upstairs) will be Deano Ferrino. Part of the ferociously popular Magic Door club, Ferrino has been stacking up gigs across Birmingham & beyond, including The Garden Festival in Croatia.
Habit resident, Jack2Front, will also be DJing upstairs – with downstairs taken care of by Steve Thornton, Tiger Collective & Process.
Habit runs from 8pm to 2am at The Bull’s Head (Moseley) tonight – Sat 18th Jan. Entry is free. For more event info, visit http://bullsheadmoseley.co.uk/event-listings/event/?eventID=10029504

This is one party definitely worth a look. Paul Thomas rose up through some tough ranks to establish a well earned place in today’s EDM scene, alongside the likes of Funkagenda and Kim Fai – a local-boy-done-good if ever one deserved to be.
His progressive yet ‘big room’ sound has come into force; buildups, breaks, strong melodies and some proper hands in the air moments (or maybe that’s just me… it has been known to get a little ‘euphoric’ when I go out) I can see him dominating The Bull’s Head upstairs in a way you might not hear again for a while.
I think they’ll be a fair amount of home town love in the room too. And it’s FREE. Are you mad??? Get yourself to this event; no excuses.
