CRATES Feat. Chiminyo + Pure Vinyl Records

Duration: 300 min

Crates is a monthly event that plays its role within the universe to bring people from all different walks of life together through the powerful movement of MUSIC and VINYL culture. Along with live music from the best of London’s young jazz musicians, we also have Brixton record store Pure Vinyl in the house, not only bringing a vinyl pop-up shop, but also kicking off the night with a Pure Vinyl Open Decks session.

This month featuring Chiminyo:
Chiminyo is well-established solo show with a very unique performance aspect. Taking mankind’s first instrument for dance music, the drum, and linking it to the most contemporary, the laptop, he’s exploring what it is that makes us move. With each crash of the cymbal or thump of the kick drum a cascade of brilliant electronic sounds are triggered and generated by Chiminyo’s self-designed software. This innovative set up allows him to be in complete control, freeing him from all loops, click-tracks and backing tracks. Every synth, sample and sound effect is performed live and in real time. The result is a plethora of era-spanning dance-scapes featuring ethereal arpeggios, thumping acid bass lines and heavy beats.

Pure Vinyl Open decks: 7pm - 8.30pm
Band: 9pm
