D.I.P. with Russ Jones and Gringo da Parada
Dirty Important People, in case you don’t already know, are the theme for the eve and expect to engage in a variety of dirty important activities, as defined by Le Roi du Paradis.
Russ Jones’ll lead the way to afro beat, latin and jungle with influences ranging from Future World Funk, Balkan beats, Gypsy-ness, Gilles Peterson, Nihal, ADF and so on … Mr. Jones is a bit of leader on the global beats stage and has put together at least a dozen compilations, the latest being Gypsy Beats and Balkan Bangers.
The Father of Favela sound and Prince of Postonove will delve into the archive of global memorabilia and share all with a touch of the fancy.
The beauty of baile skip hop sounds and samba, bossa nova, electronica, funk, breakbeats and the oh-so-important batucada.
Beware the bob of white top hat!
