Soul Buggin' with Chris Duckenfield @ The Chameleon 03.09.22

 Cor blimey, incoming Duck

We're back at Nottingham's best kept secret The Chameleon for another dark room disco and we've invited back an old Buggin' favourite Chris Duckenfield. This'll be a great opportunity to see one of the very best to ever do it in an intimate venue with a killer soundsystem.

 / Wrighty / Beane / Mark / Elmo


The Chameleon, Newcastle Chambers, 17A Angel Row, Nottingham NG1 6HL


E̶a̶r̶l̶y̶ ̶B̶i̶r̶d̶s̶:̶ ̶£̶8̶ [SOLD OUT]
Standard: £10
Final Release: £12

Please note: this is a limited capacity venue, purchasing advance tickets is recommended. Our last event sold out in advance so we’d advise not leaving it too late.

Chris Duckenfield has almost 3 decades of djing safely tucked under his belt that have seen him take in the underground warehouse parties of the late eighties, classic clubs like the Panorama Bar in Berlin, The Sub Club in Glasgow and The Electric Chair in Manchester as well as thundering cathedrals of rave in the form of London’s Fabric and Electric Elephant festival in Croatia, Chris Duckenfield has done it all. He was one half of the mighty Swag outfit, ran record labels Odori, Primitive and the more recent filthy disco imprint Popular Peoples Front and that’s not even mentioning the ‘ssssssh’ records he puts out. A firm favourite at Soul Buggin’, we can’t wait to have him back on our dance floor.

Before Soul Buggin' matured into the hairy dark room disco it is today there was a rather splendid underground party in Nottingham called Basement Boogaloo. Small, intimate and positively throbbing with soulful vibes it attracted some of the finest DJ's to visit the city and many got truly mucky in basements, lofts, pub gardens and even on a boat in Croatia's Garden Festival. The nights are still talked about all these years later so we thought let's invite the crew back for a proper get down in our favourite small venue The Chameleon.

Soul Buggin' 17th Birthday with Red Rack'em (Bergerac Records)

E̶a̶r̶l̶y̶ ̶B̶i̶r̶d̶s̶:̶ ̶£̶1̶0̶ [SOLD OUT]
1st Release: £12
2nd Release: £14

Red Rack'em (Bergerac Records)

We've invited our old mucker Red Rack'em, from Bergerac Records, to celebrate with us. Astonishingly, he last played for us way back in 2009 so is long overdue a return visit.
With a fanbase that ranges from Elton John to DJ Harvey, Red Rack'em's twisted productions have been turning heads for years now and we're big fans here at Soul Buggin' towers. He launched his "How I program" music masterclass series in 2020 that's gone on to build a great community and attracted some stellar guest programmers. He's played just about everywhere from Berlin to Bristol and his DJ sets straddle everything from house, disco, broken beats, nu wave, techno, boogie, jazz, soul, hip hop and everything in between.
Come get loose in a basement with us.

The night DJ Spinna played a little basement in Nottingham...

There've been a few nights over the years where we've had to pinch ourselves at Soul Buggin'.

The first time Ashley Beedle came to play Moog in 2011, Andrew Weatherall laying down the cosmic chug at our 9th birthday in 2013 and of course when we flew Recloose over (not once but twice!) are only a few that spring to mind (there are loads if we're honest) but our 15th birthday party last month can most definitely join the list.

At our very heart as you've probably already guessed by now we're just a bunch of record nerds, we're not full time promoters and we don't do this as a job but toying with the idea of bringing DJ Spinna over from New York to our party in Nottingham had us salivating like a dog that hadn't been fed for a week. We've tried for a few years to make it happen but as these things go the planets hadn't quite aligned but when things fell into place for our 15th birthday we started to get very excited indeed. Whether it be his DJ sets, his production work or simply his stellar series of numerous complications, DJ Spinna has been an inspiration to all four of us for as long as we can remember so when it came to announcing the night, to say we were buzzing our bits off was an understatement.

Big thanks to all who came down, DJ Spinna for playing a blinder, Trade for hosting us and Andre who shot some great highlights. It'll be one for the history books for sure.
