Live jazz + DJ's

Mixing up and challenging the notion of a gig and a club night LNJC (Late Night Jazz Club) nods to jazz clubs of days gone by where stages were smoky and boundaries were blurred. It’s both late night live music and DJ;s.

6 piece Cykada is an energetic bomb of unique style. It engages distant poles, analogue worlds crashing with electronics, eastern influences crossing with western, harmonising nostalgic moments with dancefloor bangers. It seems that Western Africa is just bordering with Eastern Europe, where Turkish music high fives Flamenco and all of this is wrapped up with the fundamentals of the London club scene. There are so many inspirations that it may seem impossible to unite them, however they make it happen, creating layers of devastation, beauty and intrigue.

“Ash has developed a unique ear for selecting and carefully pruning his unique record collection to bring you the best global beats and jazz based obscurities. he has supported , Gilles Peterson, Lonnie Liston Smith and Mala, held a 1 year residency at Jazz Café, He currently holds down a monthly party at revered audiophile spot Brilliant Corners and is a resident curator and DJ at Laylow."
