Gilles Peterson & Patrick Forge spin for Christmas Dingwalls

2 December

Talkin Loud and Saying Something or just “Dingwalls” as it’s come to be known, has been one of Gilles Peterson’s longest standing commitments, ongoing for more than 25 years. A legendary residency, it was a pivotal movement for the acid jazz and jazz-dance revolution that took hold in the late eighties. Every few months, Peterson revisits Camden’s Dingwalls for these Sunday afternoon dance sessions. For this Christmas edition, Patrick Forge gets involved behind the decks with Peterson, whilst Tori Handsley Trio will perform live. The event is sold out, but you can cop a late ticket on the door from 5PM.

Fresh Roasted: Beatmakers get challenged in Chicago

6 December

Each month, Lumpen Radio broadcaster King Hippo presents a live beat-making battle where record collectors present samples to beat makers who then have to create on the spot. The audience hears the results and decides who comes back for the following edition. With four years in its history, hosted at The Whistler, this event welcomes back 19 champions on 6 December for the ultimate head-to-head. For this show, in an extension from King Hippo’s RAWS concept, they will all be taking samples from a live band consisting of Mark de Clive-Lowe (keys), Isaiah Spencer (drums) and Joshua Griffin (bass).

Zara McFarlane plays Jazz Cafe

16 December

Given McFarlane’s impact as a Black British Jazz role model, it’s surprising that this is the biggest show to date for the Brownswood musician. Playing tracks from her third album ‘Arise’, McFarlane will be exploring jazz through both a British and Jamaican lens, with thought-provoking lyrics and alluring vocals.
