Excursions 1st Birthday Loft Party w Alexander Nut, Bopperson & Gilla

  • Sat Dec 12 - Excursions celebrates it’s 1st birthday in style with Eglo Records’ boss Alexander Nut at The CLF/Bussey. We’ve had some great parties over the last year with Mr Thing, Andrew Ashong, Al Dobson Jr, Will LV, Lexis, Dimensions Soundsystem and YAM Records DJs all passing through to bless the Bussey stage. For our final show of the year we’re heading back to the top floor for a loft party with one of our favourite DJs doing it right now. Alexander Nut is the man behind Eglo Records, home to some of the most exciting forward thinking soulful music in the UK. Responsible for seminal releases from Floating Points, Fatima, Funkineven, Dego & Kaidi and many more, Eglo has built a reputation for consistently delivering quality music. As well as running the label, Alex was one of the original DJs on legendary London radio station Rinse FM. His Saturday morning show became essential radio, and his new show on Dalston’s NTS is cementing his position as one of the most unique selectors in British radio. A regular fixture at Bussey, we’re delighted to have him join us for our Excursions session. Expect soulful music of all styles and tempos. As ever Excursions resident DJ Gilla will be dropping an eclectic mix of beats, soul, disco, hip hop and beyond. Gilla is the man behind First Word Records, home to Tall Black Guy, Souleance, Yosi Horikawa, Sarah Williams White, Jon Phonics and more. A respected selector in his own right, 2015 has been a busy year with sets at European festivals Soundwave, Dimensions and Southern Soul as well as a host of shows across the capital. To get a flavour of his style check out a couple of live sets from Dimensions in Croatia: https://soundcloud.com/dimensionsfestival/dj-gilla-live-at-dimensions-2015 Gilla will be joined by fellow First Word-er Bopperson. As well as working at FW, he’s also part of the Wah Wah 45s family, and has a regular show on Paris-based radio station Le Mellotron. A versatile and downright funky DJ, Bopperson will be starting the night off right, so make sure you’re down early to check the vibes.
