Shapes // Saturday 28th May

Following a SOLD OUT show at Rich Mix, VERY limited early birds are on sale now for the uniquely talented Anchorsong LIVE at East London’s premier venue Shapes on Saturday 28th May.

Following what promises to be a mesmerising live show from Anchorsong, we’ll be partying into the night with Clap! Clap!, Mo Kolours & Branko and their unique blends of tribal rhythms.

Anchorsong has become globally recognised for his unique live shows, which many people have described as “like watching a painter drawing on a white canvas”, as he creates electronic music completely live using a sampler and a keyboard, right in front of the audience.

After spending 2 years in Japan to focus on producing,  “Mawa EP” was released on 18th August 2014 on BBE. It received great praise from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Karizma, Osunlade, Craig Smith etc.

Joining Anchorsong on the bill for this HUGE night of tropical beats, is none other than Italy’s brightest talent Clap! Clap!. His unique global rhythms features traditional Italian folk rhythms and melodies mixed with a global harvest of found-sounds smashed through an electronic beat machine mindstate.

Next up is Mo Kolours and his generous and endlessly creative talent that has always exhibited exotic tendencies, offering so much to this already MASSIVE night of the finest world beats.

Last but no means least is João Barbosa AKA Branko of Buraka Som Sistema acclaim, a band whose worldwide phenomenon helped create a new attitude towards global sounds and reshaping dance music culture. This only adds to a completely unforgettable evening of music and rhythms.

Any night that promises tropical good times on this level is sure to sell out fast so make you bag yourself a spot before they’re gone!

Anchorsong is absolute fire” Gilles Peterson
