Batov Records Presents: The DIN / RPS Surfers / DJ Kobayashi
May 18, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - May 19, 2018 @ 2:00 am£5 – £8
Four chaps, four instruments, three voices and a confluence of styles ranging from gypsy jazz to British indie, alternative folk to flamenco et cetera, The Din are surely hard to pigeon-hole. It’s essentially acoustic music, but don’t expect sultry ballads… more relentless, upbeat mash-up.
Originating from Newcastle-upon-Tyne they now reside in London, where the notoriety of the band’s high-octane live shows has led them to perform regularly across Europe and at many of the UK’s top venues and festivals, including Glastonbury and Isle of Wight as well as support slots with Babyshambles, Carl Barat, Adam Green and Frank Turner.
RPS Surfers is a Mediterranean surf-rock band based in Tel-Aviv, Israel.
Their music can be described as a combination of traditional 60’s surf with middle-eastern sounds and is best recognized by strumming reverb guitars, vintage organs, thunderous drums and crazy saxophone.
So far, the band released two instrumental concept LPs, in which the permanent band is accompanied by classical horn and strings sections, ethnic instruments like the accordion, mandolin and darbukas as well as modern synth sounds.
DJ Kobayashi loves digging for music around the world, you could say it’s his full time job! He loves anything that’s got a groove and the right melody. His style varies from Mediterranean / Middle Eastern sounds to the Balkans and Eastern Europe, but he still loves a good electronic beat! He is also a member of Gypsy Hill, who combine Balkan beats and Mediterranean grooves.
The venue is open from 10:30am. Happy Hour is 5-7pm!
