Bearded Clam were our first guest chefs at the Flamingo Pier London launch and our most talked about of the season.

They source the best available ingredients to create super tasty burger delights for you to freak out on.
Late Nite Tuff Guy‘s deft reworks of vintage disco and soul tracks have had over four million plays on Soundcloud and saw him DJ from Ibiza to Berlin in 2014. He was our most played artist on the Pier this year so we couldn’t be more excited to host him soundcloud.com/
Marcus Marr’s ‘The Music’ (UK) on James Murphy’s DFA RECORDS is an FP anthem and he played an amazing set at our closing party. His next DFA release is in January so expect fresh cuts that ride the line between disco, house and indie perfectly soundcloud.com/marcus-marr
Rocco Raimundo’s Ridin with Rocco mix series is full of slow-burning funk and disco grooves that we can’t get enough of soundcloud.com/
