LINEUP

8pm — Space Dolphin (facebook.com/spacedolphinuk)
Hip Hop Improv outfit from Leeds UK.

A hip hop, jazzy jam experience, Space Dolphin aims to bring people together through the love of live music. Born from a mutual love of groove and improvisation, Space Dolphin have been playing up and down the U.K., collaborating with a plethora of talented musicians and MC's expanding their sound, ensuring each performance is as unique and bespoke as the tastes of each collaborative member.

2017 has seen Space Dolphin perform with the likes of Fold for the launch of their new E.P. 'Written In The Sky' and the likes of Motormouf, and Phenician Gold with their monthly hip hop nights 'More Than Soul' and 'Beats & Bars' hosted between Nottingham and Leeds. Space Dolphin will be performing with Dr. Syntax and Pete Cannon in February, and March will see them supporting Rye Shabby at Rough Trade in Nottingham.

Space Dolphin have been busy recording and working and are excited to announce their debut E.P. Hikikomori 引きこもり, which has been released through their label Mind Space Records. Have a listen here — (soundcloud.com/mindspacerecordsuk/sets/hikikomori)

Some inspirations: John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders, Air Trio. Find our music here — (ancientinfinityorchestra.bandcamp.com/releases)

9:45pm — ROGAN

Rogan is a 3-piece live electronic band from Leeds, UK, taking inspiration from the city's thriving house, dub-reggae and jazz scenes to create their own flavour of EDM.

The band spend most of their time annoying the neighbours from their bedroom studio. They use drums, guitar and analogue synths alongside live looping and sampling to create their soundscapes. With a shared love of innovation, they're always experimenting to find new ways to generate and perform their sounds whilst keeping open to collaboration with other musicians and vocalists.

With past releases on labels such as Wagram Music and Jon Kennedy Federation, Rogan have been putting out downtempo electronic music in various forms for a number of years. A recent upgrade to the studio has given them the opportunity to reshape their music to a more uptempo sound whilst still containing some of the feel from the older material. Keep an eye out for some new releases coming later in 2017.

10:30pm — Spoken Word

10:45 pm — Art Raffle

11:00pm — Motormouf

The host with the most, Motormouf is a Hip-hop hippy who travels the galaxy armed with a loop pedal, a microphone, quick fire lyrics and beatbox vocals as his weapon of choice

11:45 pm — Space Dolphin Presents — More Than Soul Train (Open Jam)

For a love of all things funky, the house band perform for you a selection of Hip Hop classics which sample some of the best funk, soul and disco breaks from 70's best Soul Train. Expect to hear Jackson 5, James Brown, Kool And The Gang, Chic, The Isley Brothers and The Temptations sampled in these hip hop classics.

MC's and musicians are welcome to join us to cypher and jam along with us as we play out the set.
