A journey into deep and jazzy territory awaits with Black Wax Solution at the Spiritland controls for this Sunday afternoon into evening session.
Matthew Halsall (Gondwana Records)
Matthew Halsall is one of the UK's leading figures in jazz. As a composer, producer, trumpeter, DJ and founder of Gondwana Records, Matthew has become a cultural catalyst for modern music, combining his love of spiritual jazz, deep electronica and crafted songwriting across a series of albums.
We're delighted to welcome him to Spiritland for a monthly residency where he'll be exploring his musical world in depth and breadth.
Spiritland Screen: Studio 54 plus afterparty
After our riotous Italo Disco night in May, we're teaming up with the Everyman Cinema for a monthly night to celebrate films we love, some followed by intimate afterparties back here. The first in the series is a late night screening of the long-awaited Studio 54 documentary (2018, Director: Matt Tyrnauer) playing on Saturday 7th July.
Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70's hedonism - a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society.
Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club’s hallowed threshold, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.
The screening at Everyman King's Cross is followed by an afterparty back at ours with music from Sheffield legend Solid State playing beneath the disco ball until 3am. Get your tickets and get ready to get down.
DJ, producer and label boss Charles Webster is synonymous with superbly crafted, deeply melodic electronic music on labels including Remote, Love From San Francisco and his current project Miso Records. On Saturday night at Spiritland he shares his lifelong passion for finding the perfect groove.
Andrew and Richard Good Block have been running classy events across the capital for countless years and have guested at many of Europe’s finest radio stations, festivals and clubs. Synth, soul and electronic music in all it's forms will go down for this Saturday night session.
J Jazz Masterclass with Tony Higgins & Mike Peden
To mark the first vinyl reissue of the legendary 'Tachibana' LP on 27th July, co-compilers of the groundbreaking BBE 'J Jazz' compilation, Tony Higgins and Mike Peden curate a night of spiritual jazz, fusion, Latin and rare funk here at Spiritland.
Cherrie Flava (MIC Records)
Cherrie has been a fixture on London's underground and black music scenes for over a decade and having previously worked at Soul Jazz Records as A&R, and buyer for their record shop Sounds Of The Universe, her knowledge and passion for the rarest of grooves is unparallelled.
