The Hydra teams up with WorldwideFM founder Gilles Peterson and James Lavelle to bring back their legendary club night ‘That’s How It Is!’

Kickstarting in 1993, ‘That’s How It Is!’ was a legendary club night for music aficionados who wanted to listen to the latest findings from original tastemakers Gilles Peterson and James Lavelle.

Taking place weekly on Mondays, the party went strong for over a decade and it was a meeting point for different generations of ravers. Following the tradition, The Hydra ‘That’s How It Is!’ happens on Easter Monday [bank holiday].
