Soundway Records Announce Their Biggest Ever London Party: ‘Dancing Time With Soundway’
Soundway Records have announced their biggest London party to date, ‘Dancing Time With Soundway’ held at Netil House on the 10th September.From the highlife, disco and rock sounds of 70s Nigeria to the golden age of Panamanian music, Benin’s Afro-Latin grooves, Colombia’s champeta and all other forms of tropical and Afro sounds imaginable. Soundway’s mission is to present the very best in obscure a-sides, b-sides and album cuts that have remained unavailable… until now.
The night will feature Miles Cleret (Soundway) Chris Menist & Maft Sai (Sound of Siam) on the decks along with guest DJs Vamanos & A.J Holmes (Secousse) and The Quietus DJs. The evening will kick off with a very rare screening of Black Goddess, an award winning film from the 1970s shot in Nigeria and Brazil. Live music comes all the way from Phnom Phen with The Cambodian Space Project.
In preparation for the night A.J Holmes has put together a rather special YouTube mix featuring the funkiest in highlife and Afro beat. AJ Holmes, leader of the Afro pop collective AJ Holmes & The Hackney, along with DJ Vamanos have been part of London’s Secousse night. Originally started by the acclaimed production duo Radioclit, Secousse’s monthly Friday night residency at Notting Hill Arts club quickly became renown for it’s music policy of riotous tropical music and good vibes.
