This Friday night, 25th March our new club night at East Bloc called Queen Sound System will be launching onto London's nightlife from 10:30pm and we couldn't be any more excited!
Queen Sound System is the brainchild of superstar DJ Terry Vietheer and EQ is the music blog partner of choice for the exciting new night where electronic pop reigns supreme. EQ will be hosting a special room along with our resident DJ Adamix which is sure to be a pop musical feast as all of you come to know, love and expect.
In Queen Sound System's main room, Terry Vietheer and James Pople will be spinning along with Gaydar Radio's Phil Marriott and we'd thought we take this opportunity to introduce you to Terry and James today. Don't they just look spiffy!
So why is Terry excited about Queen Sound System? He told us why..
"The fusion of electronic producers and pop artists over the last few years has been incredible. Putting Queen Sound System together with EQ other DJs who feel the same has been an ambition of mine for awhile and now is the time. To add to this, our launch party is at London's newest and coolest late night venue East Bloc."
What does James have to say about DJing at Queen Sound System?
"I'm SUPER excited to play for Queen Sound System – I can't think of any other night on the scene like it. The music policy is right up my alley and I have got some awesome tracks that I can't wait to share. It's going to be a night full of smiles, laughs and definitely lots of dancing and that's what the best nights out are all about!"
We'll be featuring the other half of our Queen Sound System DJs Adamix and Phil Marriott later this week as well so stay tuned! If you want to come along to Queen Sound System, join the crowd of sexy faces on Facebook and let us know you're coming!

Terry Vietheer DJ Bio
After more than a decade of dancing his way around the globe to the rhythm of house music, it was inevitable that Terry Vietheer’s future passion was bound to play out on the other side of the decks. Fast-forward six years into his career to find Terry playing his sound around the world.
Terry Vietheer played his first gig in 2005 to a few hundred people at a small bar in Sydney. As his reputation began to build for his energetic sets, Terry was soon to be playing Sydney’s leading bars, clubs and parties.
During the summer of 2006, Terry Vietheer joined John Course, Tommy Trash and Alan Thompson as part of the Ministry of Sound ‘Sessions’ and ‘Housexy’ tour. These parties were followed by Terry playing the Hed Kandi annual tour which had Australia’s #1 music website, inthemix.com.au, affirm Terry has a great future ahead of him.
In 2007, Australia’s biggest nightclub, Home, recruited Terry Vietheer as their resident for their 2000+ legendary circuit party. His “hands in the air” closing sets on the terrace became a highlight while supporting some of the worlds leading artists such as Peter Rauhofer and Offer Nissim.
A new chapter started for Terry in 2008 as he relocated to London. Terry’s first UK residency kicked off with Pacha’s 'Funky4love’, a high-octane music event lead by Hagenaar & Albrecht. Terry's second UK residency lured him to the world famous club, Heaven, where he was a weekly resident for two years. Other UK venues played at include Supperclub, Dalston Superstore, Shoreditch House and East Bloc.
2009 was the beginning off in the studio collaborating with Per QX on 'Old School, Nu School'. Ready in time for the Winter Music Conference in Miami, the track found its way into the trust hands of Tom Stephan and Roger Sanchez that lead to the exclusive signing on Stealth Records and featured on 'Roger Sanchez presents Release Yourself Vol 8'.
And in 2010, Terry Vietheer and producer Chris Cooper sign their track ‘East Village’ to Miles Dyson’s Plasmapool Records. They are both currently in the studio working on new projects both under their own names along with an alias project. 2010 also kicked off new residencies in the UK with Lovechild and Hola.
Along the way, Terry supported the likes of Frankmusik, The Juan Maclean, Johnny Dynell and Patric La Funk at various gigs around Europe and USA thanks to his exclusive signing to JumpDJ The Agency. Home to Sammy Jo, Tom Stephan, Larry Tee, Per QX, Disco Damage and more, JumpDJ is all about representing the finest underground artists across the world.
