Located in the depths of culture in Hackney Wick, Colour Factory is a well-favourted institute that spearheads a solid plethora of DJs, live acts, bands, crews, and collectives sold out week in and week out. Building on what was a pivotal year for the East London hotspot with names such as Boiler room, Queens Yard Summer Party, and Body Movements to name a few, 2024 is set to be a monumental year for the warehouse, with a fresh load of residents starting from March! Each resident will be featured with a selection of dates showcasing their signature sonics every weekend as well as honing in on some of the respected talents from their scenes.

Starting in April with more dates to follow later in the year, NTS resident Crystallmess is bringing her multigenre accolade to Queens Yard. The French-born Ivorian/Guadeloupen producer, DJ and writer is a trailblazer coming in hot popping-up festivals such as Primavera Sound, Dour Festival and NTS in the Park she has also been commissioned for soundscapes with designers Kenzo and Paco Rabanne. Her effortless style of production, mixing and performing uniquely blends melodic techno, afro-trance and abrasive dancehall. Her refreshing take on club music goes toe-to-toe with global diasporic, connecting the dots between wider dance music making her the perfect addition to Colour Factory’s eclectic resident scheme. 

Friday 12th April she welcomes 2 ferocious selectors to kick off her series “EDGING”. First up Doctor turned DJ, Emma Korentema is joining the session. Her dynamic approach to genre blending has aquired her a debut on Boiler Room last year as well as popping up and down across lineups across the UK. She also can be recognised for her vibrant shows on Foundation FM. Straight from Detroit HITECH will be bringing their innovation in ghetto, rap, tech and house for some high energy jumping and sprawling across the stage.

Cutting her teeth across the queer underground scenes in Glasgow and Berlin, TAAHLIAH has been breaking the mould since day zero. The DJ, remixer and producer has graced lineups alongside SOPHIE, LSDXOXO, 100 Gecs, and Eris Drew amongst others. Her approach to hard dance, hyperpop and techno has landed her as the first black trans woman to be nominated at the Scottish Alternative Music Award and the first artist ever to be nominated and win in two categories in the same year. Her mission to amplify and spotlight her community through her music is a principle in her advocacy for LGBTQI+ rights. Her debut EP and sonic autobiography “Angelica” conveys a universal message of power, acceptance, bravery and love. It’s only a matter of time before this euphoric energy is unleashed at Colour Factory starting on the 3rd of May presenting “The Ultimate Angels.”
