FFTANG! FFTANG! NEW YEARS EVE
Camino, Kings Cross, London
8pm – 4am
The Busy Twist (Soundway)
A block-party of global beats and tropical bass for afro ravers, latin funksters and balkan b-boys featuring a special, special set from Soundway Records’ The Busy Twist.
The Busy Twist are a duo who produce uptempo, infectious bass music with heavy African influences, having spent three years travelling back and forth to Ghana to record material with musicians from around the country. Their recent ‘Friday Night’ EP released on Soundway transcends borders with its energetic and feel-good vibes, effortlessly mixing influences from the London bass scene and Ghanaian highlife and hip-life. Future releases are set to take a distinctly latin turn after a similar stint spent in Colombia recording new material.
Tropical bass b-boy and cumbia enthusiast Huskiii fuses Colombian rhythms with hip hop beats and heavy basslines. Also taking in dancehall, funk, carnival riddims and electro champeta his sets have been mashing up latin club culture in parties throughout the UK for over a decade.
Obee will be on hand to whip up a souffle of tropical mash-ups with a liberal dose of pop, disco and party rockers your mam will know.
And we’re especially excited to welcome FFTANG! favourite Marsali back to the decks for her first DJ set of 2013. Her blistering sets of crowd-rocking Latin, African and Caribbean party music have been sorely missed.
Free entry all night
