THE BEST TUNES FROM LAST SUMMER’S MAGIC DOOR BOAT PARTY AT LOVE INTERNATIONAL

“You, you and you – you’re not nearly colourful enough. Come with me,” a girl purposefully argued before leading three of us to a bar that had been repurposed as a space to cake people’s faces, limbs and bodies in thick layers of glitter. The area looked like the epicentre of an explosion at a factory specialising in mass producing glitter, face paint, wigs, garish headbands, feathers, moustaches, capes, masks and all manner of wacky props.

It was Friday afternoon at the second instalment of Love International in Croatia and we were onboard the Magic Door boat party. Once suitably jazzed-up we promptly returned to the deck of the famed Argonaughty session ship. Then came four hours of sailing around the Adriatic, copious amounts of Session Ale, a masterclass in funk, disco and house - plus vigorous, lively and determined efforts to move limbs in time to a beat.

For the people of Birmingham, Magic Door is more than a club night; it’s an extravaganza of vibrancy; an experiential journey. Aboard the Argonaughty, which was sailing at maximum capacity and still with room to dance, I was regaled with tales of slides used to exit the club night, a secret “magic door”, mazes and other immersive elements that make their night a unique experience.

The atmosphere was an overwhelmingly positive one and the tunes – supplied by Magic Door regulars Deano Ferrino, Jukes of Hazard, Jit (Magic Door’s promoter) plus their guest Maxxi Soundsystem – did not disappoint in the slightest. Jesus, if this is what they can do with a boat in four hours then I’m going to be making my way down to Birmingham very soon.

Here’s a taster of some of the bangers they dropped…
 

Purple Disco Machine – ‘Body Funk’ 

 

Midland – ‘Final Credits’

 

Neşe Karaböcek – ‘Çayeli'nden Öteye/Yali Yali’

 

Digitaline – ‘Africa’
