On the 8th December, infamous record label, Young and Lost Club, brought their Christmas party to London Bridge pop up venue 'Counter Culture' along with a few of their latest signings and DJs.

The acts were spread across the two rooms of the railway arched venue so you could move between to two. The bands were quite a diverse mix of artists from the twee, yet dark retro pop of Exlovers to the haunting, experimental electro-pop of

The first band that I watched was The Vandoos, a cool, traditional indie band with a nostalgic twist. They put on a nice set and were a good warm up band for the audience on such a cold winter's evening.

Next up in room 1 were the hotly tipped Fixers who enchanted the audience with their atmospheric pop/rock music. They definitely had something a little bit different about them; you could tell just by looking at them; they didn't look like a band.

I was also very excited to witness the new project from Vincent from Vincent and the Villains, Bruise Music. It was certainly promising stuff; sixties tinged indie rock music that will give Frankie and the Heartstrings a run for their money.

Another new act that I felt lucky to see was Entrepreneurs. A gothic electronic artist that combines synth with hip hop to create diverse and captivating music with frightful dark undertones. He was definitely the most interesting act that I saw this evening as he was just fascinating to watch. The black lipstick and general quirky image helped too as well as the possessed dancing and skilfully rapid button finger work. Entrepreneurs is definitely an act that you have to see live, preferably in a dark, grungy underground venue; Counter Culture was perfect for him.

The last band that I got to see was Exlovers as I had to run to catch my last tube. Having been completely blown away by them in 2009 when I saw them supporting Pete and the Pirates, I was very excited to see them again. They were definitely worth the wait as their performance proved them to have developed so much since I last saw them. The quality of the songs as pop songs was much better yet they still maintained their dark edge that prevents them from being too twee. The retro vibes that they always seem to have possessed were present, yet more clearly now. They now completely fit into the music industry, in a good way, they've found their place.

The Young and Lost Club party was definitely a great insight into new, emerging talent to look out for which is what the label seems to be all about and DJ sets were strong; the night was a success.
