Rekkiabilly & Dj Ludec at The Magic Garden

June 24, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - June 25, 2023 @ 2:00 am

A night of vintage rocknroll, swing and true rockabilly with a band all te way over from Puglia Italy : Rekkiabilly & Dj Ludec on decks


The fiery rock’n’roll of this Puglian band conjours up an unpredictable blend of sound, evoking a pure vintage musk through a metropolitan style of composition. Written and sung in Italian without censorship of local dialect or slang, Rekkiabilly delivers a well-shaken musical experience with lyrics as authentic as homemade wine. The group was formed in 2005, combining the creative talents of singer-songwriter and guitarist, Dario Mattoni and saxophonist, Lidia Bitetti, and has been exporting its distinctive swing/rockabilly sound across Europe ever since. Following a some experimentation with the group’s formation, Rekkiabilly has recently strengthened its line-up by welcoming an explosive brass sextet, and introducing the master of slap, Kris Sinister (Horrible Porno Stuntmen, Boppin Kids, Kris & Lou, Mammoth Mammoth etc.) on double bass.

Rekkiabilly has shared the stage with the likes of Jon Spencer, Après la Classe, Giuliano Palma & the Bluebeaters, NewYork Ska-Jazz Ensemble, Vinicio Capossela, Max Gazzè, Banda Bardò, Folkabbestia, Punkreas, Michele Zarrillo, Arisa and many others. The band has performed on stages at some of the most renowned clubs in Europe including Micca Club (Rome), Bloom (Milan), White Trash and Road Runner (Berlin), Sean McD’s (Dublin), Kaf Fur Dik (Zurich )), and high profile festivals all over Italy (Gipsyland, Rock’n’roll party of Erchie, DB Music Zone of Terni, Rockabilly Festival of Viareggio, Rocket Rockabilly Festival of Rome and many others), alongside featuring at Sziget Festival ( Budapest), FIMU (Belfort), and Hutball (Dresden).

DJ LuDec

LuDec – a lunatic on the decks – is a vicious wild blonde with one foot dipped in Serbia and the other in chocolate fondant icing. Mixing strong Balkan beats, eclectic swing, and vintage remix embossed with filthy blues heavy bass and world influences, she will take you into unchartered waters where folk melodies are embellished, adulterated and turned into a trippy psychedelic dance party. Hailing from the Wild West of london, DJ LuDec has been pulling in crowds at Stranger Than Paradise, Continental drifts, Shangri-la, Wilderness, The Bedroom Bar; The Horse and Groom and Ministry of Sound.
