PostBox: Special Delivery - Katbrownsugar + Bricks [LEVELZ] on Wednesday 6th June 2018
Funraising is back to deliver you a special night of soulful and jazzy vibes on the 6th of June to raise money for The Bhopal Medical Appeal.
In 1984 a gas leak at a U.S chemical factory unleashed a cloud of toxic gas which floated through Bhopal, India, killing at least 25,000 people. The Bhopal Disaster remains the most deadly industrial accident ever. The effects are felt to this day with 250,000 people still suffering from chronic medical problems. Every ticket you buy is making a vital difference to someone’s life. The Bhopal Medical Appeal runs two clinics in the city providing free care to those still affected by the tragedy. Supporting the cause on the lineup we've got live sets from some of our favourite Mancunian talents, and DJ sets from some skilled selectors to keep you movin’ and groovin’ thru the night.
Headlining, Katbrownsugar is bringing some huge neo-soul talent with an intimate live set ft. visuals from hippiezilla. Off the back of her second EP Pink Trees, Katbrownsugar has been killing it and has been featured on BBC 1Xtra. Sultry and chilled, Katbrownsugar is guaranteed to bring calm and fresh vibes with her performance on the night.
Bricks is a well-established member of LEVELZ, with plenty of production credits on Levelz tunes and he's essentially a banging DJ. Bricks' sets encompass hip-hop, soul, funk, garage, jungle and drum and bass and they never fail to impress. With a couple of secret guest MCs perhaps... Bricks tells us he's gunna be playing an eclectic set of warm and funky tunes to up the energy on the dance floor.
Mayling are a top local jazz outfit who are set to provide a smooth live band set to get things started. With influences such as Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus, Robert Glasper, Badbadnotgood and J Dilla, they have a real flair for an engaging performance and are not to be missed. These guys are truly incredible musicians and it is definitely worthwhile checking them out if you have the opportunity.
Supporting later on we have DJ sets from our Funraising residents FrenJo and Celine DiJon who will be playing a b2b set of soulful garage alongside the hip-hop maverick KP.
Even our spicy decor team has a really good feeling about this one. We're feelin' both dark n colourful and have got some Bhopal-conscious visuals coming in from our kid Brayanov n Crooks.
Students, Wednesday 6th is the end of exams so come and celebrate with a night of guaranteed good energy. Everyone else, come through to experience some truly fantastic musical brilliance.
Music Genres: Disco, Funk, Hip Hop, Soul, UK Garage
