Unity team up with Liquid Funktion for a warmup DnB session at Midnight Bass!
Unity have booked a number of massive names in recent times – Benny Page, Ed Solo, DJ Aphrodite & Kenny Ken – and their next show with T>I (Playaz Recordings) and Benny L (Metalheadz) should be another big one! LINEUP: Scavenger (Liquid Funktion), Jamie BC (Liquid Funktion), Metalman (Unity), Luck E (Unity). UPSTAIRS: We are excited to welcome back QMU house and disco hall-wreckers – Nomadics – after smashing their debut upstairs last month! Name on original event wall the original event wall for cheaper entry. DRINKS DEALS: £1 shots, £2 spirit mixers, £2.50 Red Stripe (500ml can).
A scene entirely of its own, the current world of jump up drum & bass is self-contained and at times entirely closed off to the rest of the scene. DJ Guv has surely been putting in the work, and last year this all came to fruition when he released Warning, a track that got picked up by DJs across the board. Liquid and neuro DJs saw themselves caning this tune and it turned out to be the ultimate singalong track of the year, rightly crowned Best Tune of the Year by Hazard, who passed on his award to Guv in an extraordinary, well deserved post-ceremony gesture.
Mumbo Jumbo mixes it up a whole heap. Now augmented by new recruit Eva Crystaltips, resident DJs (and Bongo stalwarts) Trendy Wendy and Steve Austin play everything from disco, funk and soul to electro and house – essentially Saturday night party music all night long. Meanwhile, fellow stalwart ‘Bongo’ David Bernard gets busy on the live percussion and fellow new recruits Erb & Ting (alias Al Roberts and Groove Armada’s MC MAD) also get jamming LIVE on 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!
After one hell of a launch party, we’re back for one last time this academic year. Big Zuu is an MC who needs no introduction. Having shelled down sets all over the UK and with Youtube views in the millions, his charisma and high energy style are going to turn The Bongo Club upside down. He’s played festival stages all over the world, and having just released his new Hold Dat EP, we cannot wait to see how he turns up in Edinburgh.
The year is coming to a close and its time to say NIGHT-NIGHT to the final semester! Get your PYJAMAS on and come have one more dance in the dark before the summer starts creeping. Tell your library crush how you really feel, tell your tutor its more than just a tutorial, tell your friend they’ve never been just a friend, tell your girlfriend you wanna be friends. So get on down for a boogie before the world gets a lot more intense.
ONE FINAL TIME; come and get a lil Spoonful of everything with: THEME: PYJAMAS
LIVE BANDS, ART INSTALLATIONS, BONBONS, HUGS. Spoonful Boys, xx
