Buy Peanut Butter Funk w/ Werkha Tickets
After 3 amazing parties at The Book Club, which have seen the likes of The Busy Twist, Reginald Omas Mamode, Nubiyan Twist and XOA funkin’ up our basement club, Peanut Butter Funk is back this June!
For part 4, we’re bringing along one of our favorite DJs / producers of the moment, in the form of Werkha! First adopting the alias in 2012, Wherka's last few years have seen him craft a singular sonic portfolio; exploring a vast array of live instrumentation, band arrangement, electronic production, DJ and remix work.
Like his busy schedule, Werkha’s productions demonstrate an infectious energy, curiosity, and enthusiasm for exploring the ways in which sound can traverse time and space, taking in transatlantic jazz and soul, diasporic West African percussion, trembling Chinese guzhengs, rolling Lancashire hillsides and vibrating urban tenements.
We can't wait for him to raise the temperature on our basement dance floor this June as he's joined on the night by the PBF & Sounddhism DJs, plus Book Club resident Onyeara on warm up duties.
As with all our events, we will be celebrating a mixture of global sounds present, past and future from the Caribbean, South America, and the African continent as well as delving through the outer peripheries of global disco, funk, soul, highlife, dub, hip-hop, broken beat and beyond.
Music Policy: disco, funk, soul, highlife, afrobeat, dub, hip-hop, broken beat and beyond.
