End of summer Shameless Special @ Horse & Groom
Andy Blake will headline the Shameless Disco bank holiday bash at the Horse & Groom. Sir Blake is a DJ and record label boss of considerable repute in these here parts, having run one of the UK’s best dance labels in the form of Dissident. Indeed news that he was retiring the imprint was met by the sound of a collective groan from lovers of interesting dance music. The Dissident back cat contained an eclectic mixture that touche...d on house, techno, EBM, electronic disco and beyond, with the likes of Mark Broom, Gatto Fritto, Photonz, Naum Gabo and Blake himself all contributing. Since then Blake has started up a new vinyl-only Cave Paintings imprint, and has also been hard at work in the studio – we are particularly smitten with his upcoming remix of the Detachments, which was recorded in one take and clocks in at a mere 18 minutes!!! The man also knows how to throw down a decent tune, so expect him to keep you all dancing until silly o’clock.
Supporting on the night will be Lusty Zanzibar - with releases on Bear Funk and an album on the way via Tirk sub-label Nang, this man is a name to watch for anyone with shreds of disco in their beard. A master of low slung, sultry mid tempo jams, this unbeatably named character bleeped onto the Shameless Disco radar with his version of “Silent Running” on Nang’s Sci Fi cover album. We then fell in love with his first single “For My Friends” - released on Bear Funk - and his production work on Bille Ray Martin’s Cabaret Voltaire cover “Just Fascination”. With the debut Lusty Zanzibar album Keep Em Coming due out in October, we are incredibly excited to welcome him down for the bank holiday bash at the Horse & Groom.
Meanwhile upstairs we’ll have the Tactile crew taking over with a killer lineup that includes Jackmaster (Numbers, Glasgow), Slackk (Numbers) MB b2b CB (Colony), Tomas & Mirror Mirror (Tactile) and Alex Macpherson (The Guardian, FACT).
Room 3 will be hosted by The Discovery Allstars
