This month, Soulsville welcomes guest DJ Hobbes, behind Edinburgh’s Hobbes Music label (and formerly one half of Trouble DJs), following the huge success of 2017’s summer anthem and international club hit Web Of Intrigue (from his Rags of Time EP with Leonidas) and a very healthy buzz around the next HM release, HM012, the ‘New Experience’ EP by Japanese artist Kota Motomura – due out Fri 14th June and being launched tonight at Soulsville! Hobbes digs deep into his collection for a set of Eighties disco & boogie, Afro-Latin & Brazilian rare groove, evergreen soul, and, as well as the new release, a few other Japanese nuggets; Balearic bits, a smattering of house, obscurities, surprises and more…. Music of many colours since 2010. Strictly party vibes. [See some of the feedback from international DJs and tastemakers and check out the new release here]. FACEBOOK

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 LUCKY 7 SKA & REGGAE CLUB with ‘Tall’ Paul Robinson (The GoGo), Tony- 2-Eyes (Lucky 7) and DJ Baz (Dr No’s) with snappy skankin Ska tunes, 2-Tone and Skinhead Reggae plus a splash of Calypso. Two clubs for the price of one?! You bet!

Deep funk, rare disco and worldly soulful flavours since 2010. Strictly party vibes. FACEBOOK
As usual, the Bongo will be closed for the rest of the summer, due to the Underbelly taking over the lease of the building for the rest of July and August (for the Fringe).
This predicament puts a strain on the Bongo, as the Fringe used to be a very busy time of year for us, the Underbelly is a totally separate business and we make nothing from the enforced hiatus, while still having bills to pay (permanent staff wages etc).
This date will be our (now annual) big Bongo Summer Closing Party, with a slew of regulars from the local scene all clubbing together to help keep the wolf from our door while we’re closed. Please come down and show your support.
More info TBC.
