VYBE // Afrobeat, Dancehall & UK Funky for Veterans For Wildlife

Fri 19 April 2019 23:00-03:00

Wee Red Bar

 

VYBE are excited to bring you our first event exploring the sounds which resonate from the London Underground to the streets of Lagos.

Afrobeats and Dancehall have been taking over the UK music scene over the past few years with hits from Mr Eazi, Fuse ODG and J Hus on repeat. Dances like the Shoki, Azonto, Dutty Wine and Shaku Shaku are now synonymous with carnivals and dance floors across the world.

But on the 19th of April 2019 at The Wee Red Bar, DJ’s JustRich and DJpink will get to the very beating heart of the music that originated UK Funky and UK Afrobeats. Expect to hear music from underground African scenes like Kwaito and Gqom from South Africa and Afrotrap from Africa, France to The Netherlands. To round it off, expect to hear plenty of Dancehall from The Islands and Africa.

Dropping you in the deep end with a debut performance from DJpink, playing Afro-infused techno and house.

JustRich specialises in Afrobeats, Bass and UK Funky, as well as a handpicked selection of specially-produced bootlegs and hot Dancehall rarities and classics.

First release tickets will be £4 and £6 thereafter. Available on the FIXR App.
