The Chill Out Tent

01/05/2022 KC

Things are about to get supremely chilled across both Spiritland venues with a new King's Cross residency and two kings of electronica at Southbank.

We're delighted to welcome The Chill Out Tent for a new fortnightly Sunday session in King’s Cross. The Chill Out Tentwas birthed by the ever-prolific Chris Coco and Matt Nearest Faraway during lockdown as an online space to build a community around music, arts and wellness. Now it comes to life every other Sunday in King's Cross between Midday and 5pm.

We couldn’t think of a better soundtrack to our Sundays at Spiritland - come for the music, stay for the brunch action and Bloody Marys. It doesn't get much more Balearic than that.

Our second supper club features the chef Stevie Parle. Our joint popup Spiritland At JOY last year was a burst of sunshine during the dark days of lockdown. Now the tables are turned and Stevie brings a world of joy to Spiritland for one night only on Thursday 5th May.

Stevie Parle is a chef who made his name starting at the River Café at just 17, before stints at Moro and Petersham Nurseries. He’s known for his unfussy and seasonal approach to cooking, with a focus on fantastic ingredients. Restaurants to his name include The Dock Kitchen, Pastaio, Sardine & Palatino.

Our supper clubs are intimate affairs with a series of guest chefs bringing their culinary vision to our space, accompanied by cocktails, wines and music.

The night also features live music by the incomparable performer Rudi Douglas, recently seen at our The Glory collaboration. He’ll be singing and playing piano throughout the night.

One of Italy’s best kept secrets, Andrea Passenger is a passionate lover of all black things in music, with an uncommon sensitivity for particular and unique tunes. His selections give life to imaginary scenarios that transport the dancefloor from the intensity of Detroit to the hedonism of New York, from the darkness of a suburban club to the first lights of the dawn of an open air.
Over the years he has joined the Jazz:Re:Found Festival DJ crew, after being a resident of the 'Boogie Nights' parties. He manages the record labels Dora Exp and Icon Of Desire, his productions are published by labels all over Europe, while his dj friendly reworks can be found on Light Touches Records, Rain&Shine, Musica Altra. He also hosts monthly shows on Radio Banda Larga (IT) and Universal Rhythms (UK).

Hopeless vinyl addict, from the post-punk teenage years Angie quickly switched to the black music universe, starting collecting 7"s (R&B, exotica, latin) and then arriving to funk, soul, afrobeat and to jazz in all its shades.
Remaining true to the motto “I tried with the four-on-the-floor, but I can’t make it”, Angie tempted dancefloors and festivals.
She’s been hosting radio shows for several years and she’s currently working as journalist, social media manager, communication strategist for festivals, events and labels.

Bump N Hustle: 30th Anniversary (Purveyors of Quality Grooves 1992-2022)

Friends Bob Povey & Jon Coomer came together as Bump N Hustle in 1992. Both DJs were individually guests and residents at some of the souths top club music venues leading up to the resurgance of the weekender events at the end of the 80's.

One of the countries best events happened in Bournemouth at the Showbar on the pier during the Summer bank holidays and it was at the end of this event that Bob was asked to run another event on a more regular basis. Bob asked Jon to come on board with the project and they gave life to Bump N Hustle in October 1992...
The event had one sole aim. To play dance music targetted at people that wanted a place to call their own, current street soul, garage,house,jazzfunk and rare gems in one room all night long... The next 10 years brought together a 3 room event supported by a group of resident djs including Trevor Nelson, Simon Dunmore, ATFC, Aitch B, Ronnie Herel, Mad Flava, Terry Hunter & DJ Bigger. The rest as is history still in the making...

Bump N Hustle currently deliver 3 room events showcasing House music, RnB & A Chinstrokers eclectic session in Bournemouth on the Bank Holiday weekends at Bar So. Featuring regular top of their game guest DJ's across the rooms from Atjazz and DJ Spen to Jazzy Jeff and London event pioneer DJ/Producers Bobby & Steve...
With an expansive dance music background preceding the digital era, any opportunity to put away the USB sticks and load up the vinyl boxes is graciously up taken if the vibe is right...
