Music At The House Party
Whether you’re relaxing on a sunbed to the sultry sounds of a saxophonist, head-bobbing and foot-tapping to the infectious sounds of a live band or reliving your youth thanks to the incredible chilled DJ sets on our idyllic sundecks, music at The House Party is set to be a perfect medley. We’ll provide the fuel, and the fun will follow.
Rob da Bank
Festival guru and much-loved DJ, Rob da Bank will perform an eclectic range of sets throughout The House Party. A purveyor of club classics and dancefloor favourites, this year’s House Party sees Rob take to our sundecks as your perfect accompaniment to a sundowner with loved ones.
‘Everything we do feeds back into everything else we do… mostly in a series of happy accidents,” says Rob da Bank cheerfully. This statement sums up a career that has slowly, incrementally and, most of all, with a smile on its face, bloomed into a near two decade higgledy-piggledy success story. Da Bank is at the centre of a holistic operation, the human lynchpin drawing together multiple excitements and adventures: overseeing Camp Bestival feeds into his Sunday Best label which, in turn, inspires his Earworm music film and TV sync business, which spurs on his world-wide DJ’ing gigs, which flavours his radio shows, which…well, you get the picture! Then there’s his numerous charitable adventures from his Rob da Bank Music Club near his home on the Isle of Wight to climbing mountains and sailing the seven seas to help young people in need.
Yet this isn’t part of some ruthless, Machiavellian masterplan. Rob is still the same genial, pony-tailed fellow who, nearly twenty years ago, ran the lunchtime Sunday Best parties (entrance famously 99p, DJ Harvey as a monthly resident) upstairs at the Tea Rooms des Artistes in Clapham, back in his days as a roving Muzik magazine journalist. Since then he’s pursued his dreams with a haphazard vigour that made them happen, hosting his own show on BBC Radio 1 for a massive 12 years and being chosen to stand in for the late great John Peel, from composing soundtrack music to signing film director extraordinaire, David Lynch, to his Sunday Best label and now training as a yoga teacher.
His musical style goes all the way from his ambient and electronica roots, through funk, soul and disco sets, his acclaimed Purple Rave tribute sets to Prince up to fluid house and techno sets that he’s played in clubs and festivals his whole DJ career. Who knows where he’ll end up but we know it will be good!

Mhari’s vocal abilities are eclectic, from jazz to pop, musical theatre to gospel, she is extremely versatile and enjoys performing with a live band.
DJ Crispin Dior
A household name in the late 90’s club scene, DJ Crispin Dior is known for tiptoeing his way through a catalogue of genres. Today, his club sets are inspired by what he believes was the pinnacle of nightlife – New York’s The Paradise Garage & Studio 54.
Not content with just playing sounds, such has been his passion for sounds that he became a contributor to cult Straight No Chaser Magazine which further broadened his tastes with its championing of World Music.
Radio sets for France based Radio Nova and London’s Totally Wired are notorious for their radical approach from minimal classical compositions to Dance Hall sounds of Jamaica or House stuck together with jazz-inflected eclecticism.
Nathan’s music possesses universal appeal, his break out singles “Right Place” and “Drifting” connected with audiences in the UK and internationally. Pairing melancholy songwriting with stirring euphoric electronica, Nathan embarked into a year of change and has recently unveiled his debut album Under The Mackerel Sky. “It’s what I’ve always dreamed of,” the 30-year-old singer-songwriter says, describing his new sound which sees his captivating storytelling become intertwined with sprawling synths and atmospheric soundscapes as he draws inspiration from his new life by the sea.
“I had always dreamt of fusing my passions for folk songwriting and house music to create this sound I had envisioned.” Having incrementally added house-inspired flourishes to each successive single, the 12 tracks which make up Under The Mackerel Sky effortlessly fuse these two worlds into a cohesive body of work.
Like many musicians, the pandemic stopped Nathan in his tracks when a year of touring plans simply disappeared. Intent on starting work on his next project, unplugging from the lifeless city where he’d never quite felt at home, a decision was made. Rather than whittle away unwanted days in London, Nathan moved to Cornwall, permanently, where he’s since been hard at work creating this record.
