Music at Merchants – week of 25th July

July 25, 2016

That’s right! This week at Merchants Tavern looks a lot like this:

Shepdog (Nice Up!) is at the controls on Wednesday night. You can expect the usual funky happenings from him, with a heavy dose of soul and reggae in there for good measure

Michelle Kelly and Katie Barber are Adventures In Paradise – and make all your tropical dreams come true on Thursday night. Pop by for a sharpener and bask in the swinging slo-mo sounds of these two collectors and selectors

Rik Moran (tothebone) is a day one Spiritland jock, and brings his balearic stylings to the fore on Friday night. New wave, No Wave, New Beat and possibly even New Jack Swing are all on the menu

Mr Black is flying solo without his disco double Andrea on Saturday night. Expect music that touches the soul, from emotional pop to close-to-the-edge disco from 6.30pm onwards

Also – we have some news. After a two year residency at Merchants Tavern, Spiritland are packing up the headphones, leaving a long final tune playing and moving on. What was only supposed to be a three month jaunt (don’t call it a pop-up) in the Autumn of 2014 turned into a full-blown, two year love affair – thanks Neil, Angela, Dee and all the gang at Merchants Tavern for digging our noodly stylings, for all the deep-fried oysters, the glasses of Gewurztraminer and the many, many Go Hartnett Or Go Homes.

Music at Merchants takes August off to calm down a bit, and relaunches in September. Meanwhile you’ll find Spiritland getting settled into a brand new space in King’s Cross at the start of September.

Sounds have been from Spiritland x

Come and cool off in the bar at Merchants Tavern this week with a sharpener and a selection of ice cold DJs from around the world

Regular selector Sam Don eases you into the week on Wednesday night with a blend of slow-mo burners and jazzy ticklers from 6.30pm

On Thursday night we’re joined by a few of the leading players in the São Paulo music scene: Gui Scott, Bruno Protti and Caio Tabard (Gop Tun) drop by to give us a taste of some Brazilian vibes

Harv Nagi returns for some distinctly summery action on Friday night, playing from his deep collection of jazz, funk and latin rarities. You can get a taste of what he’s about from his radio show here

We are delighted to welcome Manu Archeo on Saturday night – head honcho of Archeo Recordings, devoted to unearthing and reissuing Italian rarities from the 70s and 80s, he’ll be jetting in from Florence to play from 6.30pm until late

Sounds come from Spiritland
