Los Bastardo’s Presents: Phil Mac – The Quietman – Jon Bongly +

SWUNG – A new London night of Electro Swing.
The music that was, is now!

Saturday 9 July @ The Horatio, 98–102 Holloway Rd, London N7 8JE

Ladies & Gentlemen…
We beseech you to brace yourselves, lock up your pets and leave your inhibitions in the safety of your own home. For we have such wonders to show you…

Electro swing… it’s the music that’s got the nation in a neck hold, and we have gone to near fatal lengths to bring to you this menagerie of musical mayhem at our favourite Den of sin… The Horatio. Last time Islington experienced a who’s who of bastardry such as this, the pregnancy rate rose 1000%, alcohol was banned for the second time and half the bastards were exiled to Cuba.

But!.. be warned folks, Los bastardos are back in town… and this time, they’ve brought the family.

LINE UP

……………………….​….THE CORRESPONDENTS………………..​………..

This dastardly duo, Mr Bruce and Chucks, collaborate to revamp vintage sounds for the modern ear. Resuscitating sampled relics with squelchy synths over dusty drum Loops they’ve depicted the trials and errors of Love, Lust and Loss over a foot-tapping toe curling amalgamation of Electro, Drum and Bass, Swing and Boogie Woogie.

The special SWUNG show dial is set to ten and rearing to rock, prepare yourselves, for there bass ready remixes and un-coupled fancy dance shenanigans will literally blow your socks off!

Wet your musical palette here with a video from them gracing the main stage at Bestival.

…………………….​LOS BASTARDOS ALLSTARS (live)……………….​…..

You may well have witnessed these dastardly dissidents serving up Electro Swing naughties from venues spanning London to Corfu, Southend to Ibiza…

Presenting an outstanding musical mish-mash, Los Bastardo’s All stars are made up of all things naughty and nasty, including: Don Bastardo (percussion), marvel at the percussive Hi-jinks of this scurrilous swine. Be amazed! at the quite frankly, blasphemous skills of the reverend JJ Bastardo (Trombone, & Tuba). The man welding Clarinet – Victor Conradsson, Robbie & Lee Bastardo running the visual treats and wheels of steel.

…………………..​…FUTURE SWING STORIES (live)……………………..

Their self produced live sets, are best described as Bigband breaks w badboy bass, tinged with swing sampled cuts, vocals and thrown through to the masses in true Yesteryeah!! style. A serious recipe of mixing, scratching, mending and blending swing time action elevated with a lively horn section.

………………………………THE QUIETMEN………………………………….

(Ssshhh, listen!) London local producer/DJ bringing a uniquely fresh flavour to the Electro Swing style. With techy minimal beats and slightly dubbed-twisted samples coupled with a huge arsenal of his solely produced tracks.

By far one of London leading producers in this field.

The Quietmen are good sorts and generous enough to give you a tally of the tunes for free.

…………………………………DJ Jon Bongly………………….​………………

Addictions are rarely healthy, but in Jon Bongly’s case being a percussionist, producer and DJ has made his addiction to rhythm an extremely viable vice.

Using his trademark take on smooth Electro Swing, he seamlessly fuses the two worlds of jazz and dance and will surely leave you with a new understanding of what it really means to “shake a tail feather”.

VINTAGE VISUALS
BEHOLD! The most deliciously decadent visual show since liquid laudanum. Kindly presented in the infamous Bastardovision via five monstrous projectors, smoke machines and a laser show that will leave you in awe.

SOUNDSYSTEM
We are ecstatic to be able to offer you this pantheon of musical mischief through London’s largest Electro Swing sound system, the pant-wettingly awesome sound of the Wattco Soundsystem, bigger than the Hindenberg, more frightening than Al Capone’s tax bill. This is pure audio monsterism with more clarity than the queens speech.

SWING PATROL
What this? A whole battalion of seasoned swingers… In one venue? Swing Patrol are the leading swing dancing group in Europe and will be in full force on the night.

PROHIBITION TEAPOTS
Prohibition calls for desperate measure, so… in order to swerve the feds and their prying eyes we’ll be offering our cannily concocted prohibition teapots.

To redeem your teapot just tell the lovely bar staff, “Walt sent you”.

ATTIRE
Simple… A 1920’s theme with a contemporary twist, fitting we think.
