The English Disco Lovers movement aims to reclaim and redefine the much hated EDL-acronym. They humorously subvert the three letters, drawing on the positivity of the Disco music genre and the history of Disco as a haven for minorities. The movement attempts to tackle Islamophobia and racism in an engaging and unusual way, by spreading a message of equality through music.
On the 21st June, EDL bring the movement down to Brixton Jamm for their Summertime Ball and they have brought some of their most talented friends along to add to the Summer time fun
The Electric Swing Circus is a 6-piece fusion of saucy 20′s swing and stomping electro beats. With an explosive sound that reverberates back through time, the ESC hotfoot their way through everything from breakbeat and house to reggae and dubstep, all with their own unique style of swing.
Fresh off the UK/Europe festival circuit for 2013, the ESC’s live set includes electric double bass, vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, keys, drums, synths and electro beats. Fronted by a sassy female double-act, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show. Their debut, self-titled album is available now on Ragtime Records.
Ladies and Gentlemen, hold onto your hats. The circus is coming to town.
Dutty Moonshine Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s the bastardisation of Electro Swing
To call these guys Electro Swing is like trying to call Tiddlywinks a sport. They push the boundaries to controversy and really have one aim for sets: to create absolute mayhem through fun, baselines and antics to rival any cabaret.
They’re definitely DJ’s with a live act, confiding them in a DJ booth will merely mean your booth will explode into unicorns and nobody will survive to tell the tale.
The English Disco Lovers’ resident djs in the shape of YAM WHO? Muzz Khan, Luke Calder and Tony Dunne will be bring enough disco to shake a stick at for all you lovers!
Muzz Khan: is one of London’s most accomplished and energetic DJs. He’s frequently described as ‘that tall guy with crazy hair who goes a bit doolally’. Muzz has plied his trade at every major club in the capital and regularly plays across the country and at festivals. He’s promoted clubnights along the way, too, with The Dance Assembly being the latest venture. Because he’s also an actor, seeing Muzz in action is something truly akin to a theatrical experience. Well worth a watch!
