Plus (and as always) we got so much more on 4 floors. Part of our on-going mission to seriously Funk you upah!!!
LEVEL 1 - The CORRESPONDENTS (LIVE) - Band On stage at Midnight
The Correspondents consist of singer Mr Bruce and producer Chucks. Both growing up in South London, they formed in 2007 and within two years had taken their hi-octane genre-blending dance music from house parties to festival main stages.
The show that quickly established the duo as one of the best live acts in the UK (The Telegraph's top 10 Highlights of Glastonbury in two consecutive years) has the monochrome clad Mr Bruce singing with force, scatting at speed and dancing like his life depends on it while Chucks takes the audience on a journey through a multitude of genres from jazz and blues to the nether regions of electro and drum’n’bass.
Their music releases are just as varied in style and influence. Steve Lamaq says of their 2014 album Puppet Loosely Strung that "Every time I think I've deduced what they sound like they start sounding like something different". 2016 saw a flurry of new releases in the build up to their next album with the same smorgasbord of dancefloor friendly musical treats. Since then, the band truly haven't looked back, going on to become one of the stand out bands to emerge from South London over the last decade, The Correspondents continuing to sleigh audiences worldwide with their unique take on 21st century electric, eclectic dance music. Live!
Truly can't wait for this!
