Shivoo Sat 13th December
@ Superfly, 2 King Street, Leicester, LE1 6RH
Shivoo pop up with a winter warmer a mere fortnight before that fat dude in a red suit delivers the end of year funk.
2008 has been a rip roaring success of a year for the Midlands promoters, celebrating their fourth birthday in style with a quartet of parties during the spring, as well as welcoming artists like Annie Mac, Switch, A-Trak and Fake Blood down to play. Any type of dance music that hits the jugular with a snap, crackle and pop has featured, electro, breaks, techno, house, hip-hop and drum n bass all contributing to the fizzing funk that makes Shivoo the party it is.
And as the penultimate session of the year kicks in, they've enlisted another set of talent to define that eclecticism with the Scratch Perverts headlining. The former DMC Team champions remain a permanent fixture within club land on account of their lucidly eye-popping and ear-jangling shows. Allaying devastating dexterity to a wide-ranging gamut of musical influences, the Pervs, blend hip-hop, drum n bass, vintage funk and even snatches of indie and rock n roll together with jaw dropping technical prowess.
As ever Shivoo flank out the support with a reputable selection of residents and guests. Top of this selection is Marc Roberts, the impresario who was responsible for programming the line ups at the hugely successful snowbombing festival in 07 and 08. A DJ equally as fun and mind-blowing as the parties he puts on in car parks!
Support from the home-grown Shivoo stable comes in the shape of Parker & Pasquale, Half Cut Club, Steve Gibson and Collo.
