There's a BRAND NEW night coming to Cardiff's brilliant Arts Institute so I thought I'd better knock out a BRAND NEW mixtape in celebration.
Bemoaning the lack of a wholly dedicated funk/soul/disco/boogie/electro-funk night in Cardiff, myself and party-starter Kaptin decided we should take on the challenge ourselves, and attempt to inject a little (more) Saturday night fever into the city's nightlife.
More specific event details to follow, but for now here's what you need to know:
Cardiff Arts Institute
Saturday 18th June 2011
"A celebration of the finest in Philly disco grooves, dirty drum breaks, soaring NY strings, bass-driven electro-funk, and cheeky re-edits. Cardiff's one and only dedicated disco-funk extravaganza...leave that 9 to 5 up on the shelf and just enjoy yourself."
Third Saturday of every month.
