Swing & Bass returns back to London for another massive collab night with Electro Swing Club. Come and join us for a night of Swing, Funk, Brass & Bass, as well bespoke immersive decor & light show in the voted for best live music venue in the UK!
This time around we are thrilled to welcome the festival superstars that are Slamboree Soundsystem! Supporting we have the phenomenal Drum & Brass trio Badcore Horns as well as 1920’s jazz punks The Imaginary Hat, plus Swing & Bass residents Fizzy Gillespie and Dan de’Lion on DJ duties. Step inside and see where bowler hats meet bass and lindy hop meets booty pop!
SLAMBOREE SOUNDSYSTEM – For those that don’t know about Slamboree – you’re in for a treat! The soundystem comprises of the dynamic duo of musicman Mike Freear and powerhouse vocalist Kathika Rabbit, packing all the essential Slambo elements into a concentrated dose of fun. Together they have performed across the world adventuring across Australia, Panama, Vietnam, with occasional secret missions to Wales and to many clubs and countless festivals throughout the UK. Expect a circus rave like nothing else you’ve heard before!
BADCORE HORNS – After these guys tore the roof off the place last time we had them down, we had no choice but to bring them back! Consisting of a trio of a drummer, baritone saxophonist and trumpeter – together they create a truly exciting and fun live show that is guaranteed to have you jumping. They mash up Brass & Jazz with massive Hip-Hop and Drum’n’Bass beats in a style they call the ‘Drum & Brass’ experience!
THE IMAGINARY HAT – These Ragtime ruffians known as The Imaginary Hat take 1920s Jazz and blend it with Rock & Punk in a style that’s as distorted and crazy as it is danceable! Through characteristically dark and assured lyricism, their songs explore the pitfalls and pleasures of 21st Century life. These guys have garnered a reputation for energetic live performances full of onstage antics and spontaneity. Let your hair down and jump around for this one!
DJ FIZZY GILLESPIE – Imagine if the Junglist massive met the Swing massive and had a baby – this man would be their lovechild. Drum’n’Bass & Jungle meets Swing, Funk, Soul & Brass in a mashup style that will have you jumping and flailing your limbs all night long!
DJ DAN DE’LION – Straight outta the jungle, this cool cat returns for another lindy bopping bass infused vintage beats session!
