Say Yes with The Cosmic Kids

For over 5 years Say Yes have been throwing some seriously outrageous parties, with some truly memorable nights. Via our rather ad hoc humble beginnings at a brimming rave pub and special one-off events Say Yes has fast become an East London institution. We return to our favorite basement Dalston Superstore where we’re joined by our favorite LA DJs The Cosmic Kids who have released records on Throne of Blood and have remixed Kindness, Holy Ghost and the Rapture. An unmissable opportunity to catch them in intimate surroundings before they make it big.Our philosophy is simple – the music does the talking – and everyone and everything else follows.

Paul Thomson Top 5

Paul Thomson plays the drums in some of Glasgow’s finest bands, Franz Ferdinand, Correcto and The Yummy Fur.  In addition to this, he runs a record label, presents a radio show,  DJs around the world and is a self confessed music junkie.  We know that living in Edinburgh and Glasgow can cause certain addictions, but this man has a serious habit.

The synopsis of his fortnightly radio show ‘They’re only records Paul’ on Glasgow’s Sub City FM, is likened to a to a loser’s lonely hearts ad : ‘Anally retentive record nerd seeks listeners, likes Punk Rock, D*I*Y, House musik, Latin, Afro, Exotican and Glam. Interested parties should tune in”.

His radio shows and DJ sets  have shown us just how varied and spot on his obsession is, and in turn we too became obsessed, and after witnessing him play a roof raising set with Hung up and Say Yes Resident Nadia Ksaiba in Glasgow, we managed to pin him down for a DJ at Say Yes.  This time he joins In Flagranti and our residents for a Friday Bank Holiday Rager.


Here is is current Top 5



Outlander – Vamp (Prins Thomas Diskomiks) (R&S)




Factory Floor – Real Love (Optimo Music)
Ramadanman & Appleblim – Void 23 (Carl Craig Re-Edit) (Aus)
Mike Dunn pres MD III – Personal Problem (Clone Classics)
Daniel Maloso – Caracol (Comeme)

After a winter hibernation, Say Yes returns for a double header of parties over the next two weekends.

Firstly, we will be at Dalston Superstore as part of a double header with our friends and kindred spirits Hot Boy Dancing Spot as part of their New York Legends Party. More info on that here:

Then next week, we take over Stone Cave in Dalston for the third year running as part of the Land Of Kings festival, with special guest sets from In Flagranti and Franz Ferdinand/The Yummy Fur sticksman Paul Thomson, alongside residents Rory Phillips, Nadia Ksaiba & Thomas Whitehead.

Say Yes 3rd Birthday Party


We are proud to celebrate 3 years of Say Yes. Throughout its time we’ve seen some truly memorable nights: like the ghoulish Halloween party a year ago, its spookily magic atmosphere permeating every party since, to the plethora of memorable sets from our international DJ friends and residents.

Via our rather ad hoc humble beginnings at a brimming rave pub and special one-off events to our current residency at The Drop, Say Yes has fast become an East London institution. Our philosophy is simple – the music does the talking – and everyone and everything else follows. Residents Nadia Ksaiba, Rory Phillips and Thomas Whitehead join forces to play together all night long…for the sake of the party. Arrive early!

Ali Renault Live at Say Yes

This month’s party is the last of the summer so we thought we’d get you something special… a live set from Ali Renault. Ali co runs the excellent Cyber Dance Records and Human Shield labels and his music has been released on dance powerhouse Dissident. As one half of electro pop duo Heartbreak, you can expect a live set of bodice-ripping cold future Italo and sweaty tri-lingual disco epics. Residents will provide a wild and wonderful celebration of genres from disco, post punk, early house and beyond, all accompanied by a suitably wild visual mix constructed each month by resident DJ and designer Thomas Whitehead.
