Afro Cluster are a Cardiff based band citing Fela Kuti, Snarky Puppy, Ozomatli, The Roots & Talking Heads amongst their influences. Together with front man MC Skunkadelic, they meld authentic sounds and rhythms of afro-funk and hip-hop with impassioned, politically conscious lyrics atop bold melodies, afro-beat aural acrobatics, rich harmonies and complex rhythms.
Changes to the line up in 2015 refined the focus and determination of the band to establish themselves at the forefront of the UK hip hop scene.
Afro Cluster are one of the Horizons 12 acts for 2016/2017 (a collaboration between BBC Wales & the Arts Council of Wales). Notable high profile gigs include performances alongside the Hot 8 Brass Band, Los Angeles Hip Hop champions People Under The Stairs and Oregon jazz juggernauts Young Blood Brass Band.
They’ve recently been building momentum, gaining recognition from BBC Radio Wales’ Bethan Elfyn, Adam Walton, BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson and Craig Charles. They were also part of Adam Walton’s ‘Best of 2015’ playlist and since then have gone on from strength to strength + we truly can't wait to witness the audio carnage on The South London Soul Train Stage.
Then on Level 2. Expect the FUNK, The whole FUNK and nothing but the FUNK as Legendary 45 DJs SNOWBOY and IAN WRIGHT load the turntables and let loose with an all night barrage of hand picked dance floor classics and rare vinyl nastiness all night long. Hell to the yeah, Strictly on the good foot!
Level 3 — We leave you in the more than capable hands of BOCA 45 & DJ WOODY who'll be celebrating the launch of their new LP with a very special eclectic set featuring the tastiest of joints and jams from the album alongside a white hot pallet load of vinyl dropped without mercy, til you can't take it no moh! Teflon footwear highly recommended.
The South London Soul Train 4 Floor Line up completed in the Rye Wax basement with REACH UP DISCO WONDERLAND hosted by The legendary DJ ANDY SMITH + Special guests dropping 80’s boogie, disco and proto house, evoking the spirit and dipping into the soundtrack of legendary NYC clubs such as 'Paradise Garage’ & 'Studio 54’. A night highlighting the sounds that emerged as the 70’s, turned into the 80’s and the DNA of club music as we know it today was being written.
