Chaka Kant, Paul Hanford, Ed Drummond
Hackney's cult radio station London Fields Radio returns to local pub-club The London Fields to whirl up a mid-week, festivalesque storm of disco, hip hop, pop and bass that'll ruin your Friday morning. The best bit? It's ruddy free to get in!
Presenters taking to the decks are:
CHAKA KANT (Auteur Reporter)
Charlotte Kingston aka Chaka Kant is disco freak, Motown junkie with a penchant for synth-tastic treats, rock 'n' roll psych, a smidgen of MOR and your favourite indie-schmindie bangers. Charlotte oscilliates wildly between tracks - and that's just the dancing - but always manages to keep on the right side of that fine line that makes guilty pleasures so delightfully delicious. Check out her out and about muso show Auteur Reporter on LFR: www.londonfieldsradio.com/shows/auteur-reporter.
PAUL HANFORD (Imaginary Soundtracks)
Paul Hanford set up the club night Tago Mago after the seminal Can album when he realised the name was free to use and wouldn't invoke copywrite issues. His style of DJing, assisted no end by dubious Russian download sites, involves playing CDRs on a variable form of soundsystem in the attempt to get people dancing. Sometimes this works. He presents Imaginary Soundtracks on LFR, where guests have included suave indie boy Tom Vek: http://www.londonfieldsradio.com/shows/imaginarysoundtracks/
ED DRUMMOND (Behind the Music)
Edward likes most music and would like you to like it too. He often plays chart and cheese to drunk students but would rather you focus on his more refined tastes in most things sonic. Often one to get excited while on the decks, he recently managed to kill a pair of headphones while enjoying DMX a little too much. Come hang out with him while he gets somewhere between hipster obscure and trendy pop. Ed presents LFR show Behind the Music, where he talks to industry peeps about their jobs and how to bag one like it: www.londonfieldsradio.com/shows/behindthemusic
