Miché

01/09/2018

Starting out behind two turntables at the age of 14, Michael 'Miché' Davies is a serial crate digger and DJ with a passion for remarkable music.

A Spiritland resident, he enjoys nothing more than genre-spanning marathon sets, with records played from all across the globe. As a radio broadcaster he hosts his radio show the Four Corners Record Club on Bloop London delving further into all sides of his eclectic record collection on a monthly basis.

Miché has seen a rise in demand for his work in the past few years featuring at some of the top spaces across Europe, playing the Rainbow Venues in Birmingham, hosting a slot on Brussels' Kiosk Radio and El Dorado festival being personal highlights. Whether on the radio show or in the club Miché always demonstrates an eclectic and vibrant taste in global music – from Sun Ra to Robert Hood, Gilberto Gil to Idris Muhammad.

Simone Marie

01/09/2018

Playing bass for irrepressible stadium rockers Primal Scream would satisfy most musically, but not Simone Marie. Her passion for DJing is as strong as ever and her record box reflects her wildly varied – but always on point – musical tastes.

We're really delighted to have her at Spiritland for a Saturday night to remember.

Anne Frankenstein

02/09/2018

Anne is one of our favourite DJs, and one of the finest on the London circuit.

A resident at Spiritland, her strictly-vinyl sets typically feature unfathomably deep selections of disco, funk, soul, jazz, afrobeat and late-night exotica.

Tom Central

02/09/2018

Tom's something of a Sunday evening specialist at Spiritland, with his all-encompassing selections earlier in the year hitting exactly the right note.

A DJ, record producer and beat-head with links to Lex and Keep Up! Records – plus a foot in the world of VJing – are solid reasons to come and round off the weekend in fine style with Tom.

Flying Mojito Bros

03/09/2018

Two disco bandoleros pioneering their own route through the great electronic wilderness.

With their boots firmly planted in dusty seventies sunsets, their panamerican productions take cosmic country funk to club and festival dancefloors via NYC latin disco and baggy acid house.

Think the first summer of love meeting the second – Crosby, Stills and Nash at the Haçienda, The Doors at Shoom, The Orb at Woodstock.

At Spiritland, they'll be carving a path between the country and latino forms of soul, funk and disco.

Citizen Helene

04/09/2018

Citizen Helene is a musician and DJ from London. Her broad-ranging sets span easy disco, boogie, funk, AOR, jazz and more. Probably a sprinkle of emotional pop music too.

In addition to DJing, Helene is a musician and long-term collaborator with artist Mary Epworth, providing synths, backing vocals, percussion and guitar in her live band.

She's played records at various London venues including at a sold out LCD Soundsystem show at Alexandra Palace last year, in addition to several UK music festivals, such as Field Day, Port Eliot and Green Man.

Matthew Halsall (Gondwana Records)

Jon Marsh

09/09/2018

Jon Marsh recorded and released music as The Beloved from Peel Session beginnings in 1985 until the release of 'X' in 1996. The project has been cryogenically frozen since then but is beginning to thaw, the catalogue having finally been prised from corporate clutches. Every mix of every track is currently being assembled and prepared for an internet rebirth, plus new material.

From 1992-2005 Jon regularly DJed all over the UK & Europe, plus the USA & Australia. He held monthly residencies at MOS and Fabric, as well as recurring bookings at mainstream and underground house clubs.

Parenthood curtailed the DJ work, but he occasionally resurfaces wielding his take on balearic: "Think eclectic style not flamenco somnambulists". His Spiritland debut will be a scenic route through the unconventional.

Corey & Jack Hemingway

Rhythm Doctor

12/09/2018

Simply put, Rhythm Doctor is a supreme DJ. His knowledge and passion for classy music is second to none and it's backed up with the skill to effortlessly blend those beautiful grooves into a wonderful evening of sounds. This session is not to be missed.

Quite possibly one of the country's longest-serving club DJs, Chris began on the 1970s Midlands punk/dub scene, before taking house, boogie, funk and more to London and beyond throughout the 1980s. Now based in Tallinn, Estonia, he joins us for another rare appearance.

Wrongtom

13/09/2018

DJ, producer and unstoppable collector/selector Wrongtom is back again – this time to coincide conveniently on the same evening that we're screening Babylon at our neighbours, the Everyman Cinema.

Expect a huge box of dub, lovers rock, brit-jazz, funk, synth pop and loads of other records which soundtracked the UK at the time of the film's release – from Kingston and her Caribbean cousins, to Brixton, Birmingham and Bristol.

Spiritland Screen: Babylon

13/09/2018

Aswad's Brinsley Forde plays the lead in this tale of London, racism, sound system culture and more.

A killer soundtrack by Dennis Bovell is one of the many things to love about this essential piece of 1980s British cinema.

(Dir: Franco Rosso, 1980)

Eliza Rose

14/09/2018

Eliza Rose brings her unique sound to Spiritland once again. If you caught her debut session back in May, you'll know why we're delighted to have her back at the controls for this Friday night session.

Minus Kendal

16/09/2018

An old head on young shoulders, weekend resident Minus stops by for another Sunday session.

Markey Funk

16/09/2018

Jerusalem-based musician, producer, DJ, turntablist, crate-digger and music archivist Markey Funk is a staple of the Israeli groove scene, from his own projects to his killer funk band, The Apples.

From hip hop beats, a fully sample-based debut album, to remixes for a wide variety of local artists, his musical palette has grown constantly wider and deeper, embracing everything between psychedelia, early electronica and library music.

Bradley Lucke (Statues/Claremont 56)

18/09/2018

The Claremont 56 stable's sound is a firm favourite here at Spiritland, and Bradley Lucke – under his Statues moniker – has produced some timeless releases that we return to again and again.

Tonight Bradley digs deep into his cherished record collection, with a few well-known nuggets thrown in for good measure too.

Gabrielle Kwarteng

19/09/2018

A first generation Ghanaian-American and New York City native, Gabrielle is often credited for displaying her diverse sonic tastebuds during her sets, which can easily range from Brazilian funk to soul to Chicago house to even '70s West African disco.

She transports her audiences around the globe, seamlessly weaving in obscure genres stemming from every continent – with the probable exception of Antarctica.

Dan Bean

20/09/2018

A firm friend of Spiritland before it even existed, Bozak bozo Dan returns play us records new and old from his very solid collection.

Truth be told we're not entirely sure what Dan will play on this occasion, but that matters not – it's always gold.

Rebecca Vasmant

21/09/2018

26/09/2018

Tailor, designer, artist, DJ, founder of The Utopia Project and The Love Fever Discotheque Alex Bradley passes through for a night of music to heal and groove to.

Concrete Lates x Spiritland: Jane Fitz & Lovefingers

27/09/2018

Spiritland is joining forces with Southbank Centre for Concrete Lates, bringing together forward-thinking DJs Lovefingers and Jane Fitz for a night of transportive electronic dance music within the exquisitely-refurbished, cavernous foyer of the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Jane Fitz's sets are at once recognisable, yet each different from the last. Drawing on music such as deep house, psychedelic techno and early acid, the unique thread that runs through Jane's hypnotic selections takes her from devotee-filled basements to boats, beaches and mountains.

The same 'anything goes' mentality exists too with LA native Lovefingers, whose trademark sounds of underground disco, house and techno comfortably cohabit on the dancefloor. His ESP Institute imprint releases regularly find their way into the bags of heavyhitters like DJ Harvey, Andrew Weatherall and Todd Terje.

Other collaborators on Concrete Lates include names from the cutting edge of electronic music such as Discwoman, Hyperdub Records, Kiasmos and Boiler Room. We're delighted to join these names with this doubled-up night of musical exploration and celebration.
