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.

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.

Ricardo Paris

08/09/2018

Weekend resident-for-a-reason Ricardo eases us from afternoon to evening with an all-vinyl blend of worldwide jazz, soul, gospel, funk and more.

A regular opportunity to enjoy choice records from a deep, deep collection.

Leo Zero

08/09/2018

Producer, DJ, remixer and visual artist Leo Elstob makes a welcome return.

Expect easy-going and long-forgotten house music, balearic oddities, DC go go and jangly indie.

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.

Vesa Liede

15/09/2018

Excellent taste? Check. All vinyl? Check. Weekend resident? Check.

Long time aficionado of all things beats, breaks and B-Boy culture, cratedigger Vesa returns to Spiritland with his enviable record collection for a rhythm section-led Sunday.

Minus Kendal

16/09/2018

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

A weekend worker at Flashback Records and host of his own monthly radio shows on NTS and Balamii, Minus is a natural cratedigger, to be found playing anything from gospel to krautrock, disco and all stops in between.

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.

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.

Michelle Kelly

22/09/2018

Weekend resident DJ Michelle – exactly one half of balearic island navigators Adventures in Paradise – is back to showcase her latest vinyl acquisitions.

Almo

23/09/2018

Weekend resident DJ Almo spins a laid-back and truly global Sunday session.

Groovy balearica, sunshine soul and funky folk – the ideal soundtrack for lounging about with family and friends here.

Greg Boraman

23/09/2018

Greg has spun everywhere from Madrid to New York City, and provided DJ support for legends such as Roy Ayers, Betty Lavette, Shuggie Otis, Brian Auger, Carleen Anderson and The Brand New Heavies. Having been involved in London’s soul, funk & jazz scene since the mid 1980s, he's steeped in decades of the finest underground sounds. Greg has been the A&R/creative force behind legendary London soul & jazz record label Freestyle Records since 2010 and signed to the label artists like Omar, Courtney Pine, Carleen Anderson, Brian Auger, Jessica Lauren, The Shaolin Afronauts & Kizzy Crawford.

He is also The Fantastics! Hammond organist/pianist (as he was previously for The Soul Destroyers on Jazzman Records), plus a music writer, radio & TV mouthpiece. This has included weekly spots for many years on the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show and on BBC TV's The Culture Show.

Expect deep jazz, rare soul, funky folk, reggae, rocksteady & bossa nova and beyond.

Alex Bradley (The Utopia Project)

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.

A regular NTS show has been the place for a new sound to emerge which has then been showcased at meditations and shakedowns at his own studio club space in N16. The Utopia Project record label has seen the likes of Soichi Terada, Vangelis Katsoulis and Lars Bartkuhn share their spirit on wax and the latest release by Berlin based Japanese artist Alex Kassian is making serious waves all just before the launch of a new reissue label Utopia ‘Originals'.

Alex plans to take us on a journey through spaced-out jazz, ambient and worldly sounds to Italian oddities, minimal, boogie disco, Japanese rarities, balearic goodness, morning music, spiritual ohms and anything that fits the feeling.

Mark Greenfield

29/09/2018

Regular-for-a-reason selector Mark G checks in for another sweet and soulful afternoon session.
