In 1990s London, rave was king of the night, and Turnmill was the first club to get a 24-hour operation license. The warehouse operation became a must-attend hotspot for fashionable nightcrawlers of the dancing kind. Themed nights with names including Xanadu and Trade took over its nonstop programming, filling the foggy walls with revelers and electronic grooves no matter the hour.
In 2008, Turnmill was closed for good. Its lease had expired and would not be renewed. The warehouse was destroyed and turned into an office building, but its legacy lives on in the hearts of London's artists and musicians, including Maribou State's Chris Davids and Liam Ivory.
"Turnmills was where we first experienced electronic music in a club setting," Ivory is quoted in a press release. "It’s a totally different and transformative listening experience and that communal spirit, atmosphere and feeling has inspired the way we've made music. Clubs are such important hubs for music discovery, especially of songs that you might have overlooked in a different setting. Partly through the feeling in the room and also through the memories attached to the records you hear."
