Expect great music, food, drinks and good vibes with new and old friends!

Yama Music made waves with their first few releases and quickly caught the attention of the mighty yoyaku. With some heavyweight releases now out on the black stuff, they are expected to do big things in the coming 12 months! Not only are these guys talented producers, they're also grade A selectors too!

Jay Hill graces us again from Philadelphia via New York with her recent killer releases on Superfreq. Last year she blew us away with the perfect music for a sun drenched Sunday afternoon!

Both Davide and Max are rocking the London scene right now with their respective labels DECAY Records & Bread & Butter London. You've probably caught them playing The Cause, open air parties in the woods or have plans to catch them at Sundays at fabric: Decay Records with Dana Ruh & Igor Vicente on 30th June! We're delighted to welcome them to play back to back for us and spread their wings a little more for our party!

Depiction Records label owner Coley is one of the most understated producers and DJs we know in London. Don't let that fool you. He's been sending us some amazing music recently and we can't wait to hear what he has in store!

On resident duties as always, Hoxton FM founder Dan Formless returns to London after recent Forward Movement trips filming, digging and playing in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Amsterdam and Berlin. Curating these monthly summer parties at Grow, Hackney allows him to share some very inspiring sounds from both his collection and connections!

HELIOCENTRICS LIVE AT GROW!!! // FUNDRAISER FOR HERBALISTS WITHOUT BORDERS

HELIOCENTRICS LIVE AT GROW!!! // FUNDRAISER FOR HERBALISTS WITHOUT BORDERS

We're over the moon to announce a special fundraising gig with The Heliocentrics! 

Tickets available from Wednesday 24th April 12:00pm

Undoubtedly one of the most incredible things to happen in music from the past decade, the band’s unique blend of raw funk, cinematic psychedelia and sci-fi jazz has earned them a cult following around the globe, counting Gilles Peterson, Madlib and The Gaslamp Killer as their fans!

Fundrasing event for Herbalists Without Borders UK Medicine making Campaign - a grass roots refugee solidarity effort to create a sustainable flow of herbal medicines to be distributed to refugees in Calais and Dunkirk : http://www.herbalistswithoutborders.co.uk/index.php

“Restless, marauding and cacophonous” Mojo

“There's something about being a band unstuck in time that makes the question of aging and consistency almost beside the point” Pitchfork

The Heliocentrics are a group for which genres are meaningless and boundaries invisible. Since first appearing on DJ Shadow’s 2006 album The Outsider the group have gone on to release a string of records that float through jazz, hip-hop, psych, krautrock and musique concrete whilst also collaborating with numerous genre heavyweights from Mulatu Astake to Gaslamp Killer.

The group’s deep-set ability to craft music intuitively and impulsively stems from a desire to avoid typical song writing processes or generic structures. Since its conception, the band's music has mainly been created from live improvisation. This musical approach gives the band its own sound and identity as nothing has been pre-written or prepared - for anything to happen it must be created at that time from the people in the room, and on the spot. A decade of such well explored sonic adventures has resulted in a tightly knit bond that the group refer to as, “almost a form of telepathy” with “musical changes that otherwise would be near impossible to write…"

The Heliocentrics comprise Barbora Patkova (vocals),Malcolm Catto (drums), Jake Ferguson (bass), Jack Yglesias (percussion/organ), Dan Smith ( guitar), Raven Bush (violin/electronics), Jason Yarde(sax), Sylvia Hallet ( Hurdy Gurdy).

JZ REPLACEMENT // LIVE FORWARD THINKING JAZZ

to May 11

JZ REPLACEMENT // LIVE FORWARD THINKING JAZZ

JZ Replacement with Jamie Murray and Zhenya Strigalev is a high energy and intense newly formed project from 2 dominating figures of contemporary Jazz.

FREE before 10, £5 After


Reviews

"...fascinatingly intense, winding and staccato performance – a real orchestrated duo..." - London Jazz News

"always it's a surreal, impressive brew" - ★★★★ Jazzwise

"A typical Strigalev collision of hip jazz virtuosity and surrealism... Strigalev's alto displays bebop agility, shivery lyricism, or sometimes a bluesy Ornetteish swerves." ★★★★ The Guardian

“Top drummer to watch”. - Rhythm drum Magazine

"Phenomenal drummer Jamie Murray" - Jazzwise 

Having just successfully played the Love Supreme festival, the famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in August, Berlin and Vienna as well as at London Jazz Festival and Porto Jazz festival in Portugal. This is a fresh exhilarating partnership not to be missed! In December they had an extended tour in St Petersburg and Moscow and they're currently recording a new album, so catch them live to hear some new tunes and grooves whilst they're fresh! 

JZ Replacement is a very special project and different from Zhenya's and Jamie's other projects. They have lots of inspirations through their musical journeys and studies, and in this project they mix them to create an organic yet very original sound. Some people see their Indian influences, some Charlie Parker or Chris Dave. The focus here is create something very tight and precise (which is often not possible with bigger groups) while being totally free and creative. There are lots of heavy swinging grooves, complex melodies as well as just some catchy simple melodies which will please everybody (although that's not the goal). And they may even RAP some Jay Z.
