It's that time again! Cargo's Summer Yard Party has everything you'd expect in a good party: great live acts, top djs, and drinks specials*; and then some. This time we offer free candyfloss and popcorn until 9pm and live art painted in front of your eyes. Oh, and it's free to get in! So you know what to do... start preparing your excuses for arriving late to work the next day and come spend a memorable Wednesday evening with us!
The Melodic Hip-Pop of Dan Black headlines our second Summer Yard Party. Drawing from Prince's Minneapolis Funk sound, Dan Black makes dance music that puts a smile on your face with his uplifting, beautiful songs - with strings that melt your heart and beats that move your ass. His new single Symphonies, incuding a Passion Pit remix, just came out and this is a great chance to catch Dan Black in London amidst his hectic festival summer schedule.
If Mpho's Box n Locks single, released just days before the Yard Party doesn't make it to the Radio 1 A playlist we will eat our hats. And we own a lot of hats. Mpho, pronounced Mmm-Poh!, makes energetic electronic pop with a Brixton urban edge and has been singled out as one to watch by pretty much everyone. Check her out now so you can say "oh yeah, i saw her before she blew up"!
In support are The The RGBs. The RGBs are gorgeous, exciting, loud girls playing electronic power pop. This femrock outfit has played at pretty much every festival worth playing at in the UK in the past year and are a staple of the London electropop scene.
Hosting the night will be the unstoppable Work It! djs, who with their throwback 90s R'n'B and New Jack Swing parties have been ramming the hippest East London venues in recent months. Diggity!
