Contours, A.H Dave, Bonya, Refreshments
WE’RE BACK WITH ANOTHER COMMUNITY DANCE!
BASED IN SOUTH LIVERPOOL, WAVERTREE WORLDWIDE IS A SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS PROGRAMME OF COMMUNITY EVENTS, RAN BY A COLLECTIVE OF FRIENDS THAT WANTED TO BRING TOGETHER A LOVE OF MUSIC, FASHION AND ART.
POWERED BY A DIY DJ BOOTH AND A DISCO BALL, WE’RE CREATING A NEW HOME FOR LOCAL EVENTS WITH AN EXPANSIVE OUTLOOK THANKS TO THE REOPENING OF SMITHDOWN SOCIAL CLUB, A HUMBLE PARADISE WHERE INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS MEET MERSEYSIDE’S FINEST IN AN UNPRETENTIOUS SPACE FOR DANCING AND GUARANTEED JOY©.
OUR LAST PARTY WAS A TOTALLY SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE THAT CAN ONLY BE REMEMBERED FOR ITS POSITIVITY AMONGST THE MOVERS AND THE GROOVERS. WE HAD LIVE SAX, A FULL BAND ROCKING THE CORNER STAGE, DANNY FITZGERALD DELIVERING THE CARIBBEAN SWING AND LEX BLONDIN BRINGING THE MAXIMUM ZING! THROUGH TO ☆☽ MIDNIGHT ☾☆
LET’S DO IT AGAIN!
~ CONTOURS ~
Manchester based Tom Burford, aka Contours, is a distinguished percussionist and drummer whose own productions and DJ sets are lauded for exceptional rhythm and groove. Expect a blend of organic field recordings, cultured samples and seasoned drums as Tom brings a record bag full of house, jazz, hip-hop and music from all corners of Africa to keep the dance alive on the wood floor.
Tom recently spent a month in Uganda interchanging his technique with the sounds of native percussion group Fonkodelis Arkestra as part of the Kawuku Sound Project, together achieving an album’s worth of harmonious Ugandan drumming and electronics. The picture is this; music with a rhythm to kindle your earthly compulsion to move.
~ REFRESHMENTS DJS ~
Local favourites Connor & Matt played the first ever record for Wavertree Worldwide. A sprite-ly DJ duo with the ability to bounce energy off each other’s musical tastes. *Refreshments not actually provided*. Unless we ask them really nicely?
~ AD HOC RECORDS ~
A.H. Dave & Bonya join us for the supporting act, bringing a signature blend of jazzy dance music that has garnered international interest in their Ad Hoc record label.
