Bank holiday summer madness
So you recovered from all that bank holiday silliness then? Here in Nottingham it all got a bit crazy but with the Buggin' Boogaloo party at The Canal House at the start of the month setting the tone it kind of was to be expected! Last weekend we waved goodbye to May with another storming session down at the Moog bar with guests Kev Beadle, Atjazz and Mouse. Due to the weather being a bit hit and miss we did the whole shebang inside and come early evening we got things rolling nicely with warm up sets from Mouse, Mark, myself and Wrighty (who had packed loads of Gil Scott Heron's music in tribute to his very sad passing on the previous Friday). There seemed to be so much going on that Sunday in Nottingham with various festivals and other all dayers throughout the day but we ended up having a top crowd bomb down. Thanks so much to all those that reached and of course to our guests. Special doff of the hat to the guitarist who plugged himself in and started jamming with Atjazz. Ace.
I'd never thought I'd say this but I'm kinda glad that there isn't a bank holiday for a bit as I don't think my liver could take another one. Unfortunately all plans for a quiet month will be put on the back burner as we welcome Manchester party legend Luke Unabomber to Soul Buggin' on Saturday 25th June at Moog. Luke is one half of that powerhouse DJ / production duo The Unabombers who are best known for creating one of the greatest disco dens in the UK in the form of The Electric Chair. With guest DJs including the likes of Carl Craig, Jazzanova, Francois K, Harvey, Derrick May, Osunlade, Laurent Garnier, Danny Krivit and Moodymann the club was one of the most respected in the country. When it closed it’s doors the ‘Chair’ philosophy was exported to Croatia and the annual Electric Elephant festival has become the ‘must do’ weekender of the summer with its infamous boat parties and stellar line ups. We can’t promise Luke will be sailing a boat through Moog but we can guarantee some pretty sweaty party vibes so we urge you to book your place on the hallowed floorboards early as this one could get pretty crazy.
Entry for this one will be the usual £3 before 10.30pm and £5 after and we'll be going on till 3am.
We look forward to seeing you on the 25th June
