7th – Pete Byrne (Rock) | Dave Metcalfe (Reggae) | Dnbenergy (DnB)
I resisted including some of the email banter between Pete and Dave, FYI, it was hilarious. They come back to explore guitar based music and reggae music respectively. Following we have a double debut. Our first dedicated Drum and Bass DJ and first outing for Ashley aka Dnbenergy. Not only does he DJ but is making his own productions over at Quondam Records
14th – Unur | Cleo | Sonny D (Soul/Funk/Hip Hop Night)
We welcome another starlet to the Off The Record turntable for her first DJ outing. After coming down and enjoying the evening, Unur will be digging from Cleo’s selection. Cleo, an Off The Record regular will provide a fine selection from UK and US. Closing this session will be Sonny Delight who also makes his first spot at Off The Record. With 20+ years DJing skills under his belt we should be in for a treat!
21st – Shabby (from Legend in Japan) | Bacary Bamba | Ashley (Lovers Rock/Mixed Bags Night)
Good friend of Off The Records head of Crowd Sourcing, Christine, Shabby will be joining us for her debut. Expect some Lovers Rock and whatever else she can find. Also, it will probably get rowdy seeing as they would like to beat me at Kings. Bacary Bamba pops into Off The Record again for another excellent set of music across loads of genres. Rounding off the evening will be the excellent Ashley who is getting more deserved attention for his skills behind the decks.
28th – Ray Juss | Lee ‘HEE-MAN’ Henry | NijMakesBeats (Hip Hop/Soul/Funk Night)
Three guys. All locals of Wax Jambu. All like records. AND, all like a drink. Let me tell you a little more about the other DJs. Lee is the funk supremeo. Every Wednesday when he has brought his records out something magical has happened. Mix that with some drink, who knows what wont happen? Nij was actually at my first gig at Wax Jambu, I spent most of the night talking to him about Dilla and hip-hop. Fast forward a few years and we cross paths again and I manage to talk him into playing some records. Its going to be hip-hop of the finest kind!
