Saturday the 22nd September 7.30pm until late
We are kicking off gig season in style! Bringing an explosion of African Highlife and blues, Dub, UK Steppas, Kwaito and jazz. Samson Sounds will deliver their heavy bass sounds to the Eco Park Barn for a night of food, music and dance.
Leading the charge in Scotland’s world dance music scene, Samson Sounds carry the energy towards a positive dance floor vibration. Guitar strings, brass, vocals and digital all align to form new audible experiences of World Bass music. Originating from the homemade dubwise Samson Soundsystem they are no strangers to bass weight and deliver a good time guarantee.
Hailing from Glasgow, the group is rooted in the local reggae / bass music scene and are making waves across the UK. Originally started with a soundsystem, DJing and solo productions by Anders Samson the band began in earnest when, King Raja and Willie G joined, bringing trombone and guitar to the table. From here the sound really progressed. Willie’s rapid African plucking and Rajas melodic brass gave a much wider scope for the music pushing the boundaries out from the solely electronic into a fresh blend of live instruments and digital sounds. With the addition of singer Easy Oze in early 2012 the group had reached the fullness of today. Easy Oze’s sweet and sometimes deceptively high voice cuts a path, swooping back down to smooth it back over.
As always, La Cantina will be open from 7.30pm with a delicious vegan and vegetarian supper.
Sweet potato and chipotle Corn Quesadillas
For £10 this will be a joyous flavoursome plate of good vibes!
