_REMIX is a classical club night and concert series using live performance and DJ sets to present the best of music from across genres. BBC 6 Music described _REMIX as 'a space where classical music can be enjoyed in a relaxed environment'. We have presented nights in partnership with the V&A, Royal Academy of Arts, Historic Royal Palaces, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Old Royal Naval College and others. _REMIX nights are 'unusual and incredibly special' [London in Stereo] 'bringing together the old and the new, the classic and the future classic, to emphasise their similarities and pick up on their differences.'
ANNOUNCING: Synth Remix | U.K. Tour 2018
In Winter 2018, _REMIX will launch their latest night, Synth Remix. Using DJ sets and live performances to celebrate the pioneering women of electronic music including Delia Derbyshire, Daphne Oram and Laurie Spiegel, Synth Remix will launch in London before touring throughout the U.K.
Throughout the 1960s and 70s a group of pioneering women working at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Bell Labs and elsewhere, developed and composed for innovative early synthesisers. Synth Remix will use live performance to explore the living potential of this radical music as well as these composers' technological and creative legacy.
Synth Remix is supported through Sound and Music's Composer-Curator Scheme with funding from Arts Council England and the PRS for Music Foundation.

In Summer 2018, _REMIX will launch its own record label. Releasing live recordings alongside new works and remixed, historic music, _REMIX RECORDS will be a platform for sharing the most exciting and innovative cross-genre music.
