La Rumba: Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra, Pangaea, Aroop Roy, Yak
It’s with a great pleasure to welcome the legendary Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra for an extended live set to headline the party. The 10-piece orchestra, led by Dele Sosimi, one of the globe’s most influential Afrobeat artists, has been touring the world over spreading their infectious African-Electronic rhythms everywhere from Gottwood Festival & Dimensions Festival, to sold-out shows at Albert Hall, The Jazz Cafe and a Boiler Room set. With a musical career spanning over 4 decades, Dele Sosimi and his various musical affiliations have provided countless global dance hits worthy of any record bag which guarantee to get you moving.
Headlining the Warehouse, hosted by Pretty Pretty Good, Hessle Audio‘s Pangaea will be performing an extended set of forward-thinking electronic music. Expect blends of UK-Bass, House, Techno, Breaks and more into what can only be distinguished as the Hessle Audio sound we’ve come to know. Joining Pangaea will be upcoming talent and PPG Co-Founder, Yak, whose list of performances includes supporting the likes of Or:la, Joe and rRoxymore is just as impressive as the list of artists who support his own music; Joy O, Hunee, Ben UFO to name a few. With highly acclaimed releases, both previous and upcoming, this performance will not be one to miss. Kudan completes this hefty room-2 lineup with a 2-hour warmup in store to set the scene.
Joining the band in the main room will be rising star, Aroop Roy, whose recent productions have gained endless support from the likes of Giles Peterson, Detroit Swindle, Atjazz and more. His rise to success shows no sign of stopping, with increasing international performances which blend Jazz, Afro, Latin, Funk and deeper House & Disco elements, with releases on notable labels such as Delusions of Grandeur and his own Kampana EPs.
