Another great Wah Wah night South of the river
Wah Wah 45s proudly present the fourth of a series of events at the wonderful Bussey Building in Peckham, South London, this one being a very special after party session for the beautifully curated Field Day London, happening in Brockwell Park on the very same weekend.
Topping the bill, and taking to the stage fresh from her Field Day performance will be Stones Throw signed vocalist, producer and violinist Sudan Archives. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, and inspired by the North East African fiddlers from which she had taken her moniker, her music is an electronic take on that unique Sudanese sound, influenced by classical, soul and hip hop and topped off with her stunning vocals.
In support is Wah Wah 45s very own Hunrosa, AKA Sam Vicary – bass player for the Cinematic Orchestra as well as label mates Paper Tiger. Hunrosa’s music mixes a dreamy melancholy with fractured, often dance floor friendly, beats as his recent single, Ransome, will attest. The single, championed by the likes of Lefto, also features a rather tasty remix from Italian producer and Black Acre don, Clap! Clap! The Hunrosa live show is made up of live drums, keys and bass as well as some very special guest vocal performances.
Finally, we’re very excited to welcome award winning jazz trumpeter and Red Bull Academy alumnus Emma-Jean Thackray. Her 2016 Walrus EP caught the ear of many, including one Gilles Peterson, and recent live reimagining of Hello Skinny’s latest opus and remix work for Hector Plimmer have shown off her cutting edge production chops too. Get down early to hear Emma-Jean’s incredible solo performance.
Our DJs on the night are no slouches either. Headed up by Fila Brazillia legend Steve Cobby, a guiding light in modern electronic music who recently released a gorgeous solo album and a mind bending collaboration with renowned author Russ Litten on Cobby’s own Déclassé Records, as well as finding time to remix Soothsayers for Wah Wah 45s. Steve is partly responsible for shaping the modern electronic music scene, he’s remixed Radiohead and has all of the records you’ll ever want to hear. He’ll be playing a lot of them on June 1st.
And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ve got the main man behind Gilles Peterson’s Label of the Year in the house too! Pete On The Corner will be showcasing forthcoming music from his vibrant imprint as well as some bass worrying tropical treats and a lovely shirt no doubt.
And not wanting to stop there, we’ve added to this frankly ridiculous bill, our good friend Dusty from the brilliant Jazz & Milk Records based in Munich, Germany. Dusty’s 12” jam with Sam IRL was one of the highlights of 2017 and he’ll be dropping similar dance floor heat on the Bussey ballroom no doubt.
Add to that Wah Wah 45s head honchos Dom Servini & Scrimshire and you know that this is going to be a session not to be missed!
Early bird tickets are available now via Resident Advisor for just £6 until May 1st, so why not grab yours now!
