Sat April 22 — 1 year and a day after the devastating & untimely passing of singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, the ultimate showman aka Prince Rogers Nelson — The South London Soul Train throws an almighty Prince special celebrating the life, work and sounds of one of the most influential artists / bands / producers in the history of modern souled up popular music at The CLF Art Cafe, Block A, Bussey Building. residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?932080
It's our third year of doing this, but our first year without him, so expect much Purple celebratory highs without the lows as your host with the absolute most JAZZHEADCHRONIC joined by a right purple plethora of Prince Heads, bringing it like it’s 1999. From around 12am to 5am Level 1 bathing in the purest of Purple Rain. Live and DJ!
Kicking off with SLST favourites and one of the best Brass Bands anytime, anywhere, the most excellent BRASSROOTS performing a strictly Prince Live Set in An Explosive Brass Band Stylee. I Wanna Be Your Lover to Kiss, via I would Die 4 U & Purple Rain + More. A fitting tribute to one of the world's greatest ever artists.
But be warned… things about to get wild in the place, roof about to get truly blown off the sucka. DANG!
Then, continuing the Prince theme, step up special guest DJ MARLON CELESTINE dropping a purple themed 3hr set. A complete Prince Nut, Marlon owns every record ever released by the purple one, 1977 to date. He also started out over 20 years ago hosting and Djing strictly Prince parties as well as Prince Extended Family & The Minneapolis Sound specialist sets across London town.
One of the co pilots of the original Mukatsuku nights with Nik Weston, Marlon is tasked with covering over 40 years of the sounds of one of the worlds greatest ever artists and delivering. Believe us when we say he will not disappoint. A trio of acts taking to the SLST stage to worship at the feet of the diminutive majestic purple one. Time to take y’all to church Good People.
Then over on Level 2 SNOWBOY get's soulfully funked up and eclectic up in the place as Paul Weller Bassist and turntablist ANDY LEWIS drops Funk, Northern Soul, R&B, Mod Jazz Selections + More All Night long. 1 for the power dance floor and heavyweight get down addicts.
Level 3 — We turn things up to 11 as special guest and SLST resident BOCA 45 + PETE ISAAC [Live 45] Ignite the space with a full on barrage of funk, soul, groove, disco, boogie, beats + so much more. Your one stop shop for some future joint pain.
Get ready to dance hard y'all!
