Long summer night

Dazed team hits the sunshine to toast our new 1993 issue. Enjoy the soundtrack here

Last week, we hit Dalston's Roof Park for our issue launch and staff party. After working hard on our 1993 To Infinity issue and more, the team kicked back with chilled beers by Hobo and bratwursts and currywursts by Herman Ze German on the grassy paradise atop the heart of the East End. We threw quoits, played giant Connect 4 (remember playing that in '93, anyone?) and generally soaked up the sunshine with a glittering high rise view. The summer was on our side and it felt like a proper mini-holiday from the office - or was it the guys at Coco Face splitting open huge fresh coconuts with an enormous meat cleaver for us to sip? The queue for the nail bar by Illustrated Nail proved a popular hang-out, with refreshing fruity watermelon and kiwi designs top of the choice list. As the sun went down, friends joined us for some apple cocktails by Stoli. The crowd was entertained by DJs Howes, Flora Yin Wong and Shane Connolly of Dalston's NTS. And since we'd never keep the fun all to ourselves, you can hear their exclusive mixes here. Enjoy!
