Soul City Residents
Rich Medina is far more than your standard 'taste making DJ'.
Bolstered by a colossal ’25-30,000 records’, his progressive DJ sets fuse hip-hop, house, afrobeat, soul and funk with a deep knowledge of each genre's musics roots.
But what sets Medina apart from his peers is his numerous studio productions; remixing and producing for the likes of Madlib, Jill Scott and Platinum Pied Pipers, releasing records on labels such as Blue Note and Sonar Kolletiv, and most intriguingly his poetry performance on tracks with TY, Black Star and most notably on King Britt: Adventure in Lo-Fi.
Every Saturday at the Jazz Cafe, we connect the dots between soul, funk, disco, house and Motown classics from across the ages with our weekly Saturday club night Soul City.
With a luxurious cocktail bar on our mezzanine floor and an energetic dance floor below, join our favourite selectors as they dig deep into their record crates and take us on a trip through some of their most-loved party grooves.
