Electrikal are back at The Bongo Club for their first night of 2015.
This month, in her Scottish debut, we have Flava D from the legendary Butterz camp joining us for an exclusive 60 min set on the Electrikal Sound System.
Mumbo Jumbo is a night with a mix of musical styles from funk and hip hop to house and electronica care of resident DJs Trendy Wendy [Tackno / Playgirl Mansions] and Steve Austin [Headspin]. There’s also live congas and percussion by Bongo Dave.
Mumbo Jumbo joins-the-dots between musical styles, mixing up funk and soul, throwing in beats, bootlegs and mash-ups, taking you through the disco to house and electro, all sprinkled with character and liberal helpings of cracking vocals! This is Saturday night party music at its best!
Upstairs tonight: Bubble with DJs Brainstorm and Durkit playing acid and house.
It’s at The Bongo Club every Tuesday – for those who want to celebrate the hip hop classics, but just as importantly the brand new! Tracks ranging from Big Daddy Kane, Odd Future, Slick Rick, Wiz Khalifa, Biggy, Wu Tang, Cool Kids, Lil Wayne, Mack Maine, Outkast, Biz Markie, J Dilla, Rick Ross, Styles P, The Dream, Kool G Rap, Kanye, Gangstarr, Clipse, Evidence, Big L, Strong Arm Steady…. Live performances, guest DJs & more
