10pm - 4am
Electric Brixton are excited to announce the launch a new monthly residency curated by Soul II Soul creator: Jazzie B.
This live music and club night aims to celebrate the original era of the Soul II Soul movement by returning to the original venue where Soul II Soul held their infamous weekly club night.
The Electric Brixton residency is about Jazzie B celebrating a rich, thriving & inspiring history by inviting classic acts for live performances or DJ sets - old friends & collaborators thrown together for one off jam sessions – but the concept is not just about the past, it seeks to capture the imagination of a new generation, with nods to the young DJs, producers and artists who grew up on Soul II Soul records and went on to carve their own creative niches. Spinning the same loving spirit into a thousand new directions.
Jazzie B has chosen to launch his Electric Brixton residency night with an old-school bang, via a live performance from Soul II Soul original grammy award -winning singer Caron Wheeler, whose soulful vocals made tracks such as “Keep on Movin’” and “Back to Life” the instant and enduring classics that they have become.
Rumours of a new album collaboration between Caron and Jazzie, to be released later this year, will make this a very special chance to see one of the most eclectic and talented soul singers of her generation performing live in London.
Joining the bill will also be very special guests – so stay tuned in... www.electricbrixton.com for further announcements!
