ARTIISAN: TSVI

23:00-03:00

For their third instalment, Artiisan are excited to welcome TSVI (Nervous Horizon) to the Bongo. TSVI has been making waves in London as a producer since 2014’s Malfunction EP, since then he has made excellent strides, founding the notable Nervous Horizon label alongside esteemed fellow producer Wallwork. A string of releases on Nervous Horizon have culminated in TSVI’s 2018 release, the enthralling Inner Worlds, an album which captures the imagination with a melting pot of Hard Drum, UK Bass, UK Funky and is described by Resident Advisor’s Andrew Ryce as an album of “emotive heights, addictive rhythms and sumptuous production”. A producer who holds the support of those such as Scratcha DVA  and Plastician, TSVI is bound to supply a breakneck live set consisting of whirling rhythms, textures and melodies. Fresh from a performance at Berlin’s Panorama Bar (Berghain), TSVI will be behind the decks at The Bongo Club for a blistering two-hour set – not to be missed!  “Club-wrecking drum tracks with a spiritual bent” RA  Resident AdvisorFacebookInstagramTwitter.

MUMBO JUMBO + THE GOGO

23:00-03:00

Mumbo Jumbo mixes it up a whole heap.  Resident DJs Trendy Wendy, Steve Austin and Eva Crystaltips play everything from disco, funk and soul to electro and house: Saturday night party music all night long.  But Mumbo is very much a LIVE dance party, as ‘Bongo’ David Bernard gets busy on the live percussion alongside Erb & Ting (alias Al Roberts and Groove Armada’s MC MAD), also jamming live (guitar & vox).  AND upstairs it’s The GO-GO, with DJ ‘Tall’ Paul Robinson and friends playing gassy and groovy 60s Pop and Beat, Mod Tunes, Soul, Rock N Roll, Garage, and Ye-Ye…  Two clubs for the price of one?! You bet!
