The 4Rest Club promotion group -- Vladimir Trapeznikov (DJ Volodya of Titanic's Happy Mondays) and former Titanic promoter Sergei Teplyakov f is about to launch its first major project da CITY house: a series of roving dance parties to follow in the footsteps of England's Miss Money Penny moving clubs.

"A club is more than just a building," Teplyakov said. "The building doesn't supply the spirit f the promoters and the people are much more important." That's good, since da CITY house has no home: It's a club that moves from building to building. And it hasn't got an office or a phone number either.

The first party will take place Friday at the Buddha Bar. Da CITY house will bring together DJs who haven't worked together since the last days of the (weekly Titanic party) Happy Monday: Compas Vrubel and DJ Volodya will play together will celebrity DJs Sanches of Propaganda and B-Voice (of Circus, Studio and Gallery fame), plus special guest Peppermint Records' DJ Boris Dlugosh from Hamburg known for his remix of Moloko's "Bring It Back."

"People have forgotten the time when they went out just to dance," said Trapeznikov. "The club culture born in the early '90s is dying. As promoters, we're tired of people coming to a club, showing off their Mercedes, picking up girls and leaving. Remember good music and dancing?"

To keep away the Mercedes element, Trapeznikov said, face control at da CITY house parties will be strict, with doormen looking for "nice faces, stylish street clothes and smiling eyes."

Cover: 200 rubles for men, 100 rubles for women. The Buddha Bar is located at 3 Pushechnaya Ulitsa. Metro Kuznetsky Most or Lubyanka. Tel. 924-5633. Thurs. to Sun. 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Credit cards: none.

Da CITY house parties are also scheduled for Sept. 2 and 23. Locations are TBA. Check these pages in coming weeks for details.
