    basement tapes

    Basement Tapes are back at Paper Dress Vintage for their monthly residency with grooves to make you move!

    We are delighted to present live performances from the African rhythms of Waaju, Electro-folk outfit Toytown Hustle and the delightfully bizarre Ed Dowie

    As usual Basement Tapes DJs (Sam Ra & Howlin’ Walsh) will be spinning some fine FUNK, SOUL, AFROBEAT, DISCO, RARE GROOVE and much more until 3am.

    Tickets £5.

    Led by one of the finest drummers around in Ben Brown, Waaju take inspirtation from Africa (predominantly Mali), South America and more to produce rhythmic and melodic masterpieces. One of Basement Tapes’ favourite bands!
    This live performance of ‘Ali’s Mali’ is stunning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1JgVFQpqq8

    Toytown Hustle
    Gypsy Jazz? Electronic Folk? Whatever you label them as, Toytown Hustle’s delightful jaunt through a variety of genres, rhythms and dynamics is undoubtedly a treat for the ears. See for yourselves and check out this brilliant live version of ‘Late': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSqKySQyvSs

    Ed Dowie
    Ed Dowie has passed through Basement Tapes on mutiple ocassions and surprises us every time with his brilliantly mad live shows and ethereal soundscapes (which last time featured instruments including a deflating balloon and toy car). Take a listen to our favourite, ‘Yungpawel': https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOk0-6YR1Ds
