The BIG TEN INCH with DJ FORMAT & ALEXIA COLEY (live)
Live: ALEXIA COLEY
DJs: DJ FORMAT, COUNT SIZZLE & COUNT SKYLARKIN
“The Best Night Out in Shoreditch!” (Spoonfed)
The BIG TEN INCH brings you dynamite vintage sounds on wax and a spine-tingling soul starlet of the future live onstage! Alexia Coley’s debut LP ‘Keep The Faith’ on Jalapeño Recordings has been wowing critics since its 2014 release – earning favourable comparisons with the likes of Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and heavy rotation on the BBC – courtesy of Craig Charles amongst others. Live, she’s got the band to move your hips and the voice to bewitch. Video: Drive Me Wild
“Style, Savoir Faire, Sassiness and Sex Appeal… slowburning soul that rivals anything Daptone can muster. Keep The Faith demonstrates verve and great songwriting”
Blues & Soul
On the decks, DJ Format digs deep into his crates of crazy funk, Latin thrillers and dancefloor jazz for the kind of set you’re only ever gonna hear at The Big Ten Inch. Format takes to the decks for his second appearance at the BTI after falling in love with the clubnight as a punter. He’s in good company – previous guests have included Andrew Weatherall, Jerry Dammers from The Specials and the late, great DJ Derek, who used to relish the opportunity of playing original r&b and gospel nuggets to the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable party crowd in EC2. Tonight host and founder Count Skylarkin is joined by Notting Hill Carnival veteran Count Sizzle, joining the dots with soul, ska, calypso, cumbia and jump blues. Arrive early!
