It’s finally time..we are finally launching our sound system & uk bass focused record label and to celebrate the launch of our first EP by Grobbie we have brought the master behind ‘Footcrab’ and UK Bass master Addison Groove to come celebrate! Addison Groove is, in fact, an alias of Headhunter, a dubstep mainstay who’s released a multitude of singles for Tempa as well as an album for the label, Nomad. He’s been playing Chicago juke in his DJ sets for a while now, and his work as Addison Groove is where that influence is allowed to come to the forefront, with stripped down drum machine beats, acid basslines and hip-hop / booty-leaning vocals.

Mumbo Jumbo is a melting pot of classic dance music: soul, funk, disco, hip hop, house and electronic beats are all dropped in the mix, courtesy of resident DJs Trendy Wendy and Steve Austin, while stalwart percussionist Bongo Dave energises the sound with his live conga workouts for a more vibrant experience on the ‘floor. Mumbo Jumbo joins-the-dots between all the evergreen dance sounds, lacing the lot with liberal helpings of cracking vocals, to ensure you get your groove on. This is Saturday night party music at its best!
Upstairs tonight: Babes. Facebook.
Back once again like the Renegade Master, it’s the 90s Rave! Another good old-fashioned, shape-cutting big one. Gear up, glow up and get on down to the naughtiest night on Cowgate. Think cheap 90s prices, top notch tune suppliers and care-free 90s vibes to make up a real whopper of an evening. We are giving Bongo Club a complete 90s makeover so this is set to be a showcase of the golden era – DON’T MISS OUT EDINBURGH. Glow sticks, whistles, crop tops and assorted dance moves at the ready! Prizes at the bar for the best Running Man etc. Facebook
