A Night Of: Vintage Beats

Having started in summer 2017, Vintage Beats has quickly built up a large following in just a few months. 

Hosted by Tulka Trio, a collective made up of James Berkeley, Sam Hughes, and John Wright, 3 musicians with a background in hip hop and jazz and everything Dilla. With all the biggest neo-soul/hip hop/jazz/rnb tunes from the last few decades, played with high levels of musicianship, it's safe to say the vibe at Vintage Beats is something to be experienced. 

The atmosphere is helped along by a crowd who come for the love of the music, and ever changing run of guest brass players, singers, and mcs who join in. This is not a night to be missed.

Soul Casserole

The Soul Casserole DJs Dustee Du and Alkie Tuner have a bit of a reputation for making DJing look like it's one big lark, it's difficult to tell who is enjoying the night more, the crowd or the DJs. One thing's for sure these DJs are passionate about the music they play.

A spicy melange of Stax, Trojan, Motown, Blue Note, Zodiac, Chess and Loma Records. They also have a late night tendency to throw a blend of randomness into the pot; from Reggae to Ragga and Blues to Hip hop. Expect an unpretentious night of full speed funky beats!
