SMOOVE & TURRELL
Having completed recording of their debut album Antique Soul their live agent sent the finished copy to Jalapeno Records who took one listen and offered them a deal within an hour of the demo arriving.
Singles I Can’t Give You Up, You Don’t Know and Beggarman scored two Records of the Week on Radio 2 and a playlist on 6 Music between them and set the boys up for a summer of touring.
And so after a winter and spring hibernation in the studio – Smoove & Turrell are back with their second album Eccentric Audio. All questions about a difficult second album are brushed aside with the first listen which shows John Turrell at the top of his game lyrically and vocally while Smoove delivers a timeless production that references but never mimics the greats of soul, hip hop, jazz and rhythm and blues. More focused than their first album, tracks like Money are influenced by the politically aware black music of the 70’s while the incredibly melancholy Wasted Man owes as much to songwriters like Nick Drake and trip hop like Massive Attack as it does to Funk & Soul.
Good friends with Craig Charles, they are played regularly on his BBC 6 Music radio show "Craig Charles Funk n Soul Club".
Recently released single "Slow Down" was also filmed in our bigger brother "Bloomsbury Bowling" in London.
THREE KINGS HIGH
after playing a storming show at the last Craig Charles night here, we brought them back after such a massive feedback from the crowd, Craig himself and DJs alike. Three Kings High produces one of the most energetic, catchy and wide genre based music from a Bristol band. Displaying funk, indie and hip hop merging together into one melodic and foot stomping gig, these guys makes the night worth going to for them alone!
JUNK SOUL BROTHERS
Our regular funk DJs coming from Bath on the success of their own club night Motorcity, the Junk Soul Brothers produce classic funk, soul and motown tunes to keep you entertained, dancing and singing along all the way until the end of the night.
