Kit Club returns to Powerlunches on May 29 for a kaleidoscopic evening of pitched percussion, sanxians and tropical waste. We are extremely proud to present the killer lineup of:
An indisputable national treasure, steel pan maestro Bravo has carved out a career over five decades including countless collaborations and projects. Now teaming up with electronics wizard Susumu Mukai (Zongamin), Bravo summons a post apocalyptic tropicalia of steel pan, heavy synth and syncopation, spanning from Trinidad to Tokyo (via Senegal) and back again. Excited is a massive understatement.
Sephine’s astonishing voice, array of curious instruments and beautifully unorthodox songs have drawn praise from none other than Fiona Talkington of BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction. Her debut EP, “Flame”, came out on Tape Club in February, with The 405 likening Sephine’s sound to “a group of Gregorian lady-monks crowding around a broken photocopier, before U-turning through a meadow and burning a giant effigy of Vaughan Williams”. The best live act we have seen this year.
Kit’s very own drum smashing, self-harmonising force of nature is back following the release of her lauded “Earth & Air” EP. Prepare for minimal wave synths, Bulgarian style layered vocals and plenty of athletic tom walloping. Also excellent live. We are very excited about this lineup!
On the decks will be Kit family Dramatic Records, Jonny Mugwump of Exotic Pylon and DJ Negative Skills (aka oMMM). Expect house party vibes, cheap beer and a free parcel of Kit ‘zine, mixtape and other goods!
