Vigsy’s Club Tip: Jazzanova at Islington Assembly Hall

By | Published on Friday 27 July 2018

If I’m being honest, my attention this weekend will mainly be on the 100 mile charity bike ride I’m doing in aid of Prostate Cancer UK on Sunday. Yes, in this heat! Any sponsorship much appreciated. But when it comes to music, the arrival of Jazzanova at Islington’s Assembly Hall tonight is this week’s stand out for me.

Jazzanova are ace, of course. Formed in 1995, this Berlin-based collective have taken the nu jazz sound to dance floors the world over. Known for their studio albums, live and DJ sets, and sterling remix capabilities, this outfit also gave us the magnificent Sonar Kollectiv label.

Tonight they descend on Islington to play tracks from their latest album ‘The Pool’, which was released last month. Paul Randolph and Rachel Sermani will be on vocal duties, amongst others.

Friday 27 Jul, Islington Assembly Hall, Upper Street, London, N1 2UD, 7.00pm-11.00pm, £15 in advance, info here.
