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!

KITCHEN SYNC: BATU

23:00-03:00

‘We make the trip back up to Edinburgh after hosting a night to remember back in October, soundtracked by Banoffee Pies. It would be fair to say that Batu had a pretty big 2018. His glorious concoction of off-kilter, psychedelic beats at Dekmantel Selectors turned more than a few heads with many touting it as the best set of the entire year. The premise of having him play an extended 3 hour set in the cave that is the Bongo Club was simply too good to pass on. Pandemonium to ensue.  Support comes from Newcastles finest export, Thom Parris, who is set to cause something of ruckus. We advise punctuality.’

SUBSTANCE (SATURDAYS LAUNCH PARTY): AISHA

23:00-03:00
LINE-UP: AISHA (HUNTLEYS & PALMERS / LUNACY), MODUS (OUTER ZONE), GAVIN RICHARDSON (SUBSTANCE). For 2019, Substance shifts up to our new Saturday residency at the Bongo.  As is fitting for the launch, our residents par excellence will take centre stage, joined by a name which is everywhere all of a sudden: Aisha.  Her rapid afterhours sets as part of the notorious Lunacy crew have hit Glasgow with a jolt, earning big ticket appearances at the likes of Pressure and TRNSMT.  Her production is also highly promising, featuring for the likes of Huntleys & Palmers.   Our resident Dommm is similarly on the up, going from strength to strength under his Modus alias.  His debut EP has solid out quickstyle, gaining gushing support from everyone from all corners, including Resident Advisor, NTS (Moxie), BBC Radio 1 (Bradley Zero) and BBC 6Music (Tom Ravenscroft). Techno, house and electro, Substance style.  See you in the smoke.

WEE DUB FESTIVAL (CLOSING SESSION): JAH SHAKA + MESSENGER SOUND SYSTEM

18.00-01.00

The 2019 Wee Dub Fetival is co-headlined by a bona-fide godfather of the UK scene: Jah Shaka (with Adrian Sherwood at The Mash House on Friday).  Jah Shaka has been operating a South East London-based, roots reggae Jamaican sound system since the early 1970s. His name is an amalgamation of the Rastafarian term for God and that of the Zulu king Shaka ZuluWIKIPEDIA. FACEBOOK.  Shaka is regarded as the leading light in traditional soundsystem style dub music, whose dedication to the original roots style and spiritual marathon sets has gained him an almost mythic status globally – there is no more influential artist that Jah Shaka and his first appearance at Wee Dub is hotly anticipated.  Support from Bongo residents Messenger Sound System.
