We’re teaming up with the Sun Street Crew for a night of genre-bending music by up-and comers from South London and beyond. Get yourselves ready for the sounds of 2020 with…
Monzanto Sound: With a sound that emanates from Dub, Jazz, AfroFunk, 70’s Krautrock and Electronica it’s simply too much to ask to put these guys into any category without misrepresenting how unique their sound is. With a shared currency of improvisation without ego between the Monzanto Crew, It’s nothing but off the cuff grooves and hypnotic rhythms that will have you locked in from start to finish.
Pleasure Barge: We’ve wanted to book this band since the moment we first heard them. The Funk/Alt-Pop Quintet born out the Mancunion underground that are sure to give you something to remember. Every Barge gig we’ve been to has always stuck with us and its not surprising why. Expect a wide range of musical influences from its members ranging from, Funk, Rock & Indie to UK Underground & Jazz, all condensed into a set designed to knock your boogie shoes clean off.
Mamilah: Mamilah will make the trip down the M1 from Leeds off the back of summer shows at Boomtown & El Dorado bringing with them some new material courtesy of some wholesome writing sessions somewhere in the Yorkshire Moors. Combining the sounds of Soul, RnB & Jazz, Mamilah are guaranteed to get you beautiful people in the mood, especially with the effortlessly soulful tones of Lydia Kotsirea.
Ife Ogunjobi: Growing up in South-East London, Ife’s surroundings have enriched his taste and style along with the sounds of Hip-Hop, Afrobeat & Jazz. This combined with his paying homage to past legends like Freddie Hubbard & Clifford Brown gives Ife’s groove an irresistible quality which we just couldn’t help but want to share. Along with a well cultivated sound, Ife boasts a huge amount of experience having played for or alongside the likes of Moses Boyd, Solange Knowles, Dele Sosimi & Ezra Collective. Couldn’t be more excited for this one if we tried!
