Having booked an incredible array of guests for their events all over the capital in the past seven years SoulBrew’s Spin Doctor & Andy Bird have plummed for a disco session with Joey Negro & Kev Beadle for this special event. Alongside residents they will be joining the dots playing a fun packed blend of soul, boogie, disco, Hip-Hop, house and beyond at this ever popular Shoreditch venue.
Born as Dave Lee on England’s Isle of Wright, Joey’s lifelong relationship with dance music began in the late ’70s, when he began collecting disco, soul, and funk records. In 1986, he moved to London and began working at a record store and the rest as they say is history. Joey Negro integrated his passion for disco music into house music as both a producer and as a remixer, causing many to call his music disco-house. Negro released music under a plethora of monikers for a multitude of record labels throughout the ’90s and into the next millennium.
As DJ, radio presenter and producer Kev Beadle’s musical history reads like a journey, from his first taste of soul and funk in the late 70’s, through the halcyon years of the jazz, jazz funk and soul scene in the UK from the early 80s right through to the almost boundary-less musical styles that the scene creates and promotes today.
Upstairs things are dedicated to an exceptional blend of Hip-Hop & Soul with SoulBrew favorite Mr Thing joining Spin Doctor in a friendly competition of one upmanship as they dig for the best floor friendly platters. As one of the most talented turntablists in the UK Mr Thing has won battles, produced incredible beats, and wowed crowds around the globe with his slick style of spinning.
As with all SoulBrew events this is going to be another knees up for those wise enough to know how to let their hair down and kick their feet up and with credit crunch concession advance tickets only £5 in advance, we really can’t say fairer than that!
