Droppin hard hitting instrumental workouts along with some heavy vocal bangers, real funk is the order of the day!
THE ALLERGIES (DJ Set)
Since forming in 2012 The Allergies have made a name for themselves with their take on sample-led beats and breaks.
“The Allergies are neck deep in the world of scratchy samples…This is truly funk and soul for the 21st century!” – Craig Charles, BBC 6 Music.
Expect the dancefloor to get truly Funked up!
