Archive for January, 2009

THANK YOU to everyone who came out on January 17th – what a storming session! Myself and Natty Bo could still be found dragging our behinds and record boxes round London’s streets at 10am the following morning. The marker for our London nights in 2009 has been properly laid down!

Now a fixture at the Bg Chill House on the **first Saturday of every month** – we’ve got a real treat in store for you on February 7th…

JIMMY SCREECH PLAYS LIVE!!

Jim Screech is one of THE most exciting, up and coming artists in British reggae and hip hop. A regular collaborator with fellow South Londoner Roots Manuva, 2009 looks set to be Jim’s year following the release of the soon-to-classic Ernest Ranglin-sampling ‘Wood For The Trees’. ONSTAGE 11PM SHARP – DON’T MISS!!

And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ve got a headline DJ set from Roots Manuva’s remixer-du-jour, Skylarkin’ resident DJ WRONGTOM!

Plus DJ Indecision – a handsome young upstart with little or nothing to do with Roots Manuva at all – and NEWLY CONFIRMED WAILERS TOUR DJ COUNT SKYLARKIN!

(Sorry, bit excited about that one)

JUMPING REGGAE, SOUL, RHYTHM & BLUES, HIP HOP & DANCEHALL TROPICALIA!

Finally, the beautiful AND talented Lady Savannah Morris hosts ROOM 2 as she bids goodbye to London living and is joined by a selection of friends in playing a bit of what they fancy.

With a heavy heart, after six and a half years I have finally taken my regular clubnight off the Cowley Road.

However, I promise there are great times to be had for those willing to come trip-trapping over that bridge…

SKYLARKIN’ SOUNDSYSTEM MOVES TO THE CELLAR!

Legendary reggae and soul knees-up packs its bags to become a monthly fixture at Oxford’s leading independent venue. A match made in heaven, but consummated in a rum-soaked vault of seedy vintage glamour.

The opening night features a special live set from vagabond jump-blues party-starters HIPBONE SLIM & THE KNEETREMBLERS, plus the inimitable blend of great black music that’s become the night’s trademark – from Count Skylarkin, DJ Indecision and very special guests on the decks. Arrive early!

The Cellar, Frewin Court, Oxford

9pm-3am,

£4 before 11/£5 after.

Friday Feb 6th and on the first Friday of every month thereafter!
