Extra ecstatic states planned at BUMP this month -- UK's Mangled Maestro RAY MANG returns to the party after releasing some of 2018's finest disco heavy hitters and NYC-via-Alberta's JEX OPOLIS comes back slangin' more of his signature soul funk jammin' but with synths and guitar this time too for a LIVE SET... definite Good Timin' ahead!
We've been big fans of JEX here at BUMP since we saw Phil South wear a Good Timin' t-shirt at our 1st loft party a few years back -- Good Timin' is Jex's label that serves up his personal productions & own unique soundscape existing somewhere "between disco, early house and the best of '80s synth jams." His first visit to BUMP was all on 12 inches of glory but this session he's back bringing guitar and synths -- Jex Opolis LIVE SET incoming! Not the first time BUMP's brought live to you but it's been a while and we're SUPER excited on this one -- a live set by a real DJ that is beatmatched/mixed all the way through and will glide the party up to height right!
And once we all get there, returning heavy hitter RAY MANG'S back to BUMP this party too -- he capped off last year with releasing much loved "Ray Mang Versions" of Phenomenal Handclap Band's JUDGE NOT (nominated for best song of 2018 by Gilles Peterson) as well as for as Soul Clap/Nona Hendryx's SHINE. Big and thick sounds to see your night through, and The Mang's reputation for that glory will be proven true as we dance to (and through) the last song.
Good... no... GREAT TIMIN' ahead
DON'T STOP THE MUSIC
