In under 3 years, Glitterbox has become legendary as one of the world’s most flamboyant, extravagant parties, with the world’s foremost DJs, renowned for their musical selection and turntable technique, laying down a soundtrack spanning 40 years of joyful, uplifting dance music. In a throwback to the glory days of disco and house, glamorous dancers and entertainers enhance the club experience, but the crowd are the true stars of the show – open-minded, passionate, and encompassing all ages, colours, genders and sexual orientations.

Glitterbox’s ethos is encapsulated in the title of its latest mix album: ‘Love Is The Message’. Compiled and mixed by Glitterbox founder and Defected Records boss Simon Dunmore, the album showcases an abundance of the very finest disco, electro-funk and house across two immaculately-sequenced DJ mixes. Inspirational pioneers such as Colonel Abrams, Tom Moulton and ‘Jellybean’ Benitez feature alongside the creators of tomorrow’s anthems, like Midland, Eli Escobar and Kiddy Smile, whilst production powerhouses Frankie Knuckles, Masters At Work and Danny Tenaglia rub shoulders with legendary vocalists Jocelyn Brown, Jackie Moore and Julie McKnight. Alongside the plethora of obscure collectibles and undisputed classics, exclusive, brand new material comes in the shape of a pair of remixes from Glitterbox favourite Dr Packer, and Luke Solomon & Terry Grant’s live disco revision of Red Rack’em.

In a time of division and disenfranchisement, ‘Glitterbox - Love Is The Message’ is a defiant call to the hedonistic sanctuary of the dancefloor.
