[ scru:club ] in Birmingham chooses Void Acoustics
- March 2017
A brand new venue will open in Birmingham on March 17th. Named [ scru:club ], the new venue is housed in a grand three story building in Digbeth where Ephraim Phillips created the first Phillips head screw.
Opening on March 17th across two rooms, the main Ephraim Room and second smaller Phillips Room, [ scru:club ] has a total capacity of 1000, the club's low, steel girder covered ceilings boasting 300 metres of LED lighting.
The new club features the world's first installation of Nexus XL and Q. The sound system also boasts Air Vantage mid-high loud speakers with Airten DJ monitors. The system has been installed by The Audio Group.
Across the entire club, a glass back wall overlooks the River Rae. With each party built around a specific concept, bespoke 3D mapped visuals will be projected onto the adjacent warehouse's wall. As morning light floods [ scru:club ], it will then reveal the club's own Hall of Fame painted on the same wall by local street artists.
Friday nights are all about bass, programmed by in-house promoters Continuum, who showcase the country's hottest grime DJs. House and techno find their home on Saturday night with guests Cocoon, Steve Bug, Jimmy Edgar and Magda booked through out season one.
Season two at [ scru:club ] will see the addition of a huge indoor garden bar lined with vines and lit, as morning breaks, through sky lights in the roof. This is followed in mid-summer by the third phase of the club, in which the car park will be converted into one of the biggest outdoor terraces in Europe, raising the capacity to 4,000 and allowing for parties that run all-day outside, then all-night inside.
Just ten minute's walk from Birmingham New Street Station, [ scru:club ] aims to join the ranks of Europe's must visit clubs, providing a unique, stand out experience for techno tourists.
