Rare Funkshun Night Newcastle UK

I have a new night starting in Newcastle, UK called Rare Funkshun. The first night is Saturday 27th of September at The Other Rooms, Newcastle Upon Tyne. The aim is to put on a monthly Funk, Soul & Disco club. Our goal is to serve up the very best in forgotten, quality, black music from the 70s and early 80s – Deepfunk, Underground Disco, Modern Soul and Rare Grooves . We will be bringing in specialist DJ's from around the world, who play rare soulful music.

Joining me on the first night will be guest DJ's:
Disco edit king Al Kent, who runs the Million Dollar Disco site. He has also just recently released the excellent Million Dollar Orchestra LP on the Barely Breaking Even label. Read more on Al Kent HERE

Also flying in for an exclusive UK date will be Chicago's DJ Boogienite. DJ Boogienite is a member of the Chicago based DJ Crew The Chuck Bros. Boogienite is a DJ & Producer who came up spinning on the underground Chicago party scene. His sets feature Soulful, Underground Disco music.

Promises to be a good night, so if you are in the area come through & enjoy the disco beatdown.
