No Mad Connexions - Festival at Cargo

Next Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th at Cargo, some original sounds emanating from france are coming through... An event we highly recommend:

Wednesday 5th April - URBAN MUSIC NIGHT
ZENZILE - French Dub Scene Sensations
HOCUS POCUS - Live instruments for smooth jazzy hip hop
SAYAG JAZZ MACHINE - One of the best kept secrets in France’s electro-jungle scene

Our main highlight is the french dub band ZENZILE... Already mash'it at Cargo when they came with High Tone and Peuple de l'herbe last autumn... They're behind lots of exciting dub, but produced by a live band rather than a computer guy... they've also collaborated with Irie Ites for a 10" releases featuring Turbulence, Lutan Fyah, Chediek, Ras Mc Bean... we like it! must go check it!

Thursday 6th April - WORLD MUSIC NIGHT
DEBOUT SUR LE ZINC - Emotive lyrics, toe-tapping beats
LES YEUX NOIRS - Two brothers – Seven musicians… LES YEUX NOIRS
THIERRY 'TITI' ROBIN - Rare London appearance
