After a good start of Spring with our previous epic party at TRC, Social Joy return to create a space for complete Social Joy. Redesigning The Total Refreshment Centre in our own mind’s eye, we bring you new colours and sounds for your total freedom of expression.
As always, expect our selectors and musicians to expose you to rhythms and melodies from around the world, all brought together to create a vibrant journey through sound.
Andrew Ashong Dj- set (Sound Signature)
Sultan Swing (Live Jazz Band)
Lexus Blondin (TRC)
Guilhem Monin (Social Joy)
Andrew Ashong, Debuting on Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature label with the truly incredible ‘Flowers’ that won him Track of the Year at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide, Ashong has quickly garnered a global following with his special brand of danceable and smoky jazz & soul. He also happens to be an amazing vinyl DJ, playing a mix of soul, funk, disco, bossa nova, afrobeat and more. It is with great pleasure that we have him back at Social Joy for the second time.
North London based band, The Sultan’s Swing is slowly making a name in the London UK jazz scene. From deep grooves, infectious melodies and psychedelic climaxes the band is truly capturing the spirit of their collective musical influences and Jazz music in general. Capturing the moment and the mood wherever it may take them, the band’s music is mostly freely improvised and will set the tone perfectly to start the night.
We will also welcome on the night of our good friend who has made a name for himself by running the highly regarded Total Refreshment Centre venue and the “Church of Sound” Night. I’m of course talking about Lexus Blondin who is an amazing Dj and someone who has that skill to play the right music at the right time. We are in no doubt that he will once again surprise us with his musical taste.
To finish the line-up we have Guilhem Monin, our Social Joy’s guiding resident.
We are aiming to bring a night of music and togetherness in a social environment where each individual is free to express their true nature. This creates a sense of wholeness and completeness rarely experienced in the modern world. The result is pure joy.
