Saturday 25th February will see the launch of The Book Club’s bi-monthly new afro-centric party series Peanut Butter Funk.
The night will celebrate present, past and future sounds from the Caribbean, South America and African continents and explore the outer peripheries of disco, funk, soul, highlife, dub, hip-hop, broken beat and beyond. With tropical décor, cocktails and sunshine sounds, it’s just what the doctor ordered in the middle of the British winter.
The party launches with very special guests Reginald Omas Mamoode IV and XOA joining us for our inaugural launch event. Reginald hails from south London and is part of exciting young collective 22a. His 2017 self-titled album capped off a great year for Reginald with tastemakers including Gilles Peterson and Alexander Nut all siting it in their top albums of the year. Expect soul sounds imbued with the sound of Latin, soul and African Nubian and Highlife. On top of this we also have XOA joining us for a special DJ Set. Headed up by multi-instrumentalist Nick Tyson, XOA fuses golden era 1970s Afrobeat with deep grooves and contemporary electronic productions sizzling with analogue synths, guitars and percussive rhythms. We can’t wait to hear what he digs out this Feb but its sure to be special. Peanut Butter Funk resident DJS Sounddhism and Onyeara
