DOUNE THE RABBIT HOLE WARMUP: THE COSMIC DEAD + OTHER LANDS + KAPIL SESHASAYEE + DR VZX MOIST (LIVE)
Decagram are delighted to present a very special Warm Up show for their friends Doune The Rabbit Hole festival in their 10th Anniversary Year! They’re pretty excited about this one, not least because The Cosmic Dead, one of Scotland’s most visceral sonic phenomena and Doune festival’s strongest supporters over the years, are playing their first unadulterated Edinburgh show with their ‘obliterating’ new line-up, on one of the city’s best soundsystems!!
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 LUCKY 7 Ska n Reggae Club is back at the Bongo! In their own words: ‘Special guest is Sweet Reggae & Rocksteady Selector NEM (Kelburn etc). Also expect the odd touch of dancehall and diggable dub on the earlier side. We are also honoured by as always with DJ Baz (Dr No’s) with the vintage Ska and Skinhead Reggae. Plus Tall Paul (The GO-GO) filling the gaps with 2-Tone, more snappy skankin ska tunes, and a splash of Calypso. Do yourself and everyone else a favour by getting along before midnight as its only £3 ’til then.’ Two clubs for the price of one?! You bet!
BIG basslines and SMALL prices form the ethos behind this weekly Tuesday night: DRUM & BASS, JUNGLE, BASSLINE, GRIME, BASS, GARAGE. MULTI-GENRE GUESTS IN ROOM 2 EVERY WEEK. DRINKS DEALS: £1 shots; £1.50 tequila; £2 spirit mixers (rum, vodka, gin); £2.50 Red Stripe (500ml can). FACEBOOK
After literally years of independently tracking one the most elusive and sought after artists of our world, with apparent dead ends aplenty, we’ve finally got our man and bring Gesloten Cirkel to The Bongo for a debut appearance in the Capital. The full live show has only graced select dance floors and is the sonic attack we’d always hoped for, fusing those untouchable underground anthems with live hardware experimentation, twisting acid, techno and electro into brave new forms. Strap yourself in, this is going to be wild.
