Ishmael Ensemble (DJ Set)


  • Jazz/Funk/Soul

Although no stranger to the club circuit, Pete Cunningham's DJ sets are a rare treat these days as the band's schedule gets busier and busier. Following a banner year for Ishmael Ensemble, 2019 has brought the group’s debut album ‘A State Of Flow’. A longplayer that has won him acclaim and support, not only from venerated musicians and broadcasters including Caribou, Gilles Peterson & Mary Anne Hobbs, but also the UK tastemaker press and attuned jazz & electronica fans alike.

Just as likely to draw for a rare psych record as he is an instrumental beat cut or slice of arresting house, his recent mixes for Vinyl Factory & self-tilted have shone light on this additional string in his bow. From band leader to consummate selector, there are multiple sides of Pete Cunningham, but they all extend from the same deep-rooted love of music, and dedication to his craft.
