The Hackney Empire
The bees of mad cap dance alnight long PARTY BAND arrive in Bristol for their first show.
“Africa and Europe meet again with such an original freshness; my tip for album of the year“ : DE:BUG
Hackney Empire are currently resident band at monthly London Tropical party Secousse (started by Radioclit in 2007) and have recently played with David Byrne.
“Putting African music in the network with western club electronics; music that is presently produced in equator proximity and up-to-dating the local Dancefloors: Kuduro, Coupé Decale or Kwaito now goes just as easily over the lips of the global Fashionistas at Berlin”
Out towner dj AJ HOLMES plays a distinctive blend Kwaito, Kuduro, Coupe Decale, Funana, Afro Grime, Afro Indie, Tropical Dance, Old school Palm Wine, Jive, Arabesk, Turkish pop, Afro pop, Rumba, Soukus, Kavacha, Tradimodern, High Life.. AJ is in league with Radioclit and the Secousse club night in London
Arctic Circle do it in a big but humble/jumble blaze of glory. They refresh the spirit with their cultish brand of DIY. A pan-euro-indie-sound-sitting-room-jam-band. They have a box of tricks that includes characterFULL vocal, accordion, clarinet, glockenspiel, effects pedals, pan lids, melodica, analogue electronics and all the rest. At live gigs the stage often resembles a jumble sale, echoing their love of homespun aesthetics and languid afternoons.
Plus a breadth of DJS playing out slinky rockers, lo-fi gems and some dirty urban cuts through to banging inter (and outer) national floor fillers to percussive dub-house take overs.
Last one was busy. How come…this one is the for HEAT.
They all sound from different global positioning but same time zone.
They all want to make you crackle.
“ Yo / As the universe expands / I contemplate whether it was God / or the Big Bang that made man / Sometimes I wonder..how come..”
