Soundcrash is incredibly excited to present an evening featuring two seminal crews playing for the first time alongside together for an amazing double headliner show celebrating music at its most boundary busting best. With Jazzanova and the Herbaliser on board every dot between Hip Hop, Funk, Jazz, Soul and Electronic music is connected like one massive self-aware organism full of awesome.
This is a very rare chance to see Jazzanova live in London so don’t miss out. The Jazzanova collective belongs to a small, worldwide group of incredibly influential innovators of dancefloor, jazz, broken beat, funk and soul. Their signature sounds are one hundred percent guaranteed to take you on a trip, mixing and matching genres as wide ranging as the hip hop that remains their roots, Brazilian samba and ever the ever elegant and precise German techno. Their worldwide travel only ensures the diversity of this palette, and with the implementation of a live band to augment their sound you are sure to be treated to something very special indeed.
Our all-time favourite funky, forward-thinking, experimental hip-hop collective The Herbaliser make a welcome return to form with their full live band in anticipation of a brand new album out very soon. Founded by Ollie Teeba and Jake Wherry during the 90s, the Herbaliser have been responsible for some of the most memorable releases during Ninja Tune's early years. Their unique fusion of Jazz and Hip Hop is best experienced when seen live, and in KOKO's beautiful surroundings this promises to be a very special set full of good vibes, lush instrumentation and plenty of colourful sounds!
Scrimshire, one of the brains behind the Wah Wah 45s label, is the latest addition to the bill: his blend of chilled electronica and jazzy notes is mesmerizing. Evidence of his soulful roots shine through in his smoother, mellow tracks, delivering rich vocals and warm bass.
Keeping things tight on the night the usual quality selection of DJs you’ve come to expect from a Soundcrash club night will keep everyone dancing until the end.
Tickets for this event are available from the venue box office, and can be purchased at face value if payment is made in cash.
