'It Ain't No Big Thing' started off as the title suggests, as something modest, a night built around the musical escapades of DJ Sam Donnison aka SamDon. Inspired by the track of the same name by Donna McGhee, he can often be found ending his sets with this Disco favourite.

In just a short amount of time SamDon has amassed an array of regular DJ slots in and around London's Soho and East End, using 'It Ain't No Big Thing' as the perfect vehicle to showcase his versatile musical sets and unexpected blends. Playing a range of musical styles, from rare Soul to Afrobeat, Funk to Boogie, Disco to House, each event fuses eclectic tastes with a fun and upbeat attitude. Expanding rapidly the event now invites other like minded guests to add a new dimension.

For this debut outing at Shoreditch's newest cocktail bar, the Looking Glass, SamDon takes pleasure in inviting his Anomalous Visuals partner in crime Antony Price aka ADJ to play alongside him for the evening. With a tougher and deeper take on disco, house and techno, ADJ's style both complements and contrasts the vivid musical diversity. With a history of climactic back2back battles at previous meetings, prepare to go through the Looking Glass into a sonic wonderland!
