More about this show

The year is 2122, The USCSS Nostromo has picked up a distress signal from the uncharted planet LV426...

Upon investigating, executive Officer Kane is impregnated by a parasitic life form discovered within an ancient derelict space craft.

Kane is taken back to the Nostromo for medical treatment, but within 20 hours, during the crew's pre-hypersleep meal, the creature within him bursts violently out of his chest. The newly born alien slowly surveys the room only pausing when it spots the crew’s record collection neatly organised in the corner, as the horrified crew members look on. Spotting an opportunity, ship commander Dallas wheels out a futuristic sound system and begins to peruse the records as the now quizzical alien looks on with interest. Dallas’ hand reaches for the play button as the alien nods in approval.

This is the soundtrack to that night.

With clubs reopening, Chris gives us a taste of what to expect from him on the dancefloors!
