Patchwork is back!
We've been working hard, and are very excited to announce some amazing talent joining us at our very own party. We are also over the moon to say that we will be boogying with you at a beautiful new space! Styx is one of London's newest party places, boasting an enormous covered outdoor chillout area (with a pond and a bridge... we don't know why but we love it), 2 bars, amazing artisan pizzas and a huge main room with a stage that all 17 of us will actually fit on! Hallelujah!
DRESS CODE: LOUD AND PROUD!!!
We will have some fantastic facepainting as well... So you have no excuse!
Joining us we have . . .
Blue Lab Beats
These guys are building heavy hype around their fresh concoction of hip hop, soul, grime and new age jazz amongst other flavours inspired by the pair's broad musical backgrounds. Blue Lab Beats features Beatmaker/producer extraordinaire NK.OK (Namali Kwaten) and the mind-blowing musical talent of multi instrumentalist Mr DM (David Mrakpor). The duo have rapidly earned the respect of the London underground music scene and we are overjoyed to have them join us before the hype explodes!
Back by popular demand after blasting people into samba based ecstasy at our last event in April. These four London drummerboys blend Brazilian rhythms with contemporary dance music. High impact, high energy and 100% mobile, the four of them will be on the dance floor with you!
Dub/reggae connoisseurs Ben Bell and Will Dorey (Skinshape) shall man the decks all night. Boy oh boy! They will be keeping us dancing with a mix of funkyness, soulyness and reggaeness up untill they close the night with all things Horus, including some of their own fantastic new productions... We are blessed to have them!
Patchwork Jazz Orchestra
Of course all 17 of the Patchwork hooligans will be powering through an epic set of contemporary big band music with some brand spanking new tunes! Patchwork includes elements of funk, drum and bass, calypso, and all sorts of other madness to keep you dancing!
