Following guests such as Ben UFO, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Oneman, and the East London club’s current resident, Flava D, celebrated Rush Hour affiliate Hunee will take over the club as every Friday through October to December.
Presenting the residency as ‘Postcards From Hunee‘, his handpicked guests across the consecutive weeks are yet to be announced, but Room 2 will see London’s most lauded audiophile venue Brilliant Corners in full control, bringing in some of the most searching local and international record collectors to select the music.
With full lineup announcements expected to come on Tuesday 18 September, read a comment from Hunee on his new role below…
In the last year I played twice at XOYO, once with MCDE and a few months ago with Ben UFO and Shackleton, both nights were musically quite different, but they both were exciting and fun and adventurous. When I got “that email” from the club, I thought, this could be something…and well, now it is… in October 2018, I will start a 3 month residency at XOYO in London, playing each Friday for ten weeks in a row, together with people who have and continue to inspire me with their ear, taste, style, craft and spirit. Plus, a big London inspiration – the Brilliant Corners family – will transform and host the second room for the whole duration of the residency … I am delighted!
