A Mixtape Affair returns to Islington Bar Academy on Friday 21st November to bring you an evening of Indie gems past and present. Featuring the hottest live bands and the best guest DJs playing A-sides, B-Sides and Rarities from our vaults- if it makes us dance it’s going on.
Gloria Cycles are LIVE with their perfect pop harmonies straddling indie rock to northern soul and 60s dancehall. The Brighton-based quartet, about to embark on a tour with Cage the Elephant, describe themselves as “Influenced by everything from elevator music to rave via Dexys Midnight Runners, The Cure, Supergrass, Randy Crawford & My Bloody Valentine”. Debut single “Vegas” went straight in the Top 30 of Radio Ones Indie Charts and a summer of festivals culminated in them winning Europe-wide Emergenza Competition for up & coming bands. Check them out now before the album, mixed by John Cornfield- engineer to Stone Roses, Verve & Oasis amongst others- hits the shops and they hit the big time.
Guest DJs are Another Guy Called Gerald (Manifesto) and Homework + Detention (Another Music = Another Kitchen) playing alongside resident DJ Jimmy Mixtape.
