Esteemed Funkstresses & Funkateers,

After our rip-roaring debut funked up Paradise in full effect we are delighted to return with the Open Vinyl Session on the 24th November for our penultimate getdown of 2017.

Once again with Uncle Vibes in funky unison with Caren Can Can, K2K Radio and a few special guests - The Open Vinyl Session will be funking up legendary West London party venue 'Paradise By Way Of Kensal Green' for a soul-fuelled shakedown.

The Open Vinyl Session and K2K DJs will be in place across 2 rooms, with 2 sets of turntables and 2 simultaneous DJ's - HOUSE PARTY STYLE!

So calling all DJ's, Selectors, Dancers, Open Vinyl and K2K family, new and old - keep this date clear as we're gonna tear the roof off this sucker!

Downstairs will be hosted by Uncle Vibes & Caren Can Can in the newly refurbished cocktail bar, for which the Open Deck policy will be in operation.

One and all are invited to dust of any 12", 45's, 78's and or any other drastic plastic that you deem suitable to spin for the occasion, think London House Party vibes and dance floor spinners.

Upstairs will be taken over by the special guest DJ TBC who will be throwing down Friday Night disco delights in homage of Saturday Night Fever's 40th anniversary.

So Ladies & Gentleman, come down, throw down and get down...

DJ Set @ Refuge: A Club Night With A Conscience

Buy tickets for Refuge at bit.ly/refugeclubnight

Tickets are available at a range of prices - dig deep and pay what you can. There won't be an additional fundraising appeal at the event itself so your ticket payment is also your donation.Tickets must be bought in advance.

Europe’s refugee crisis is the biggest shame of our time. Our governments have failed the millions of people fleeing from repressive regimes, war and gruelling poverty, by refusing to provide them with the refuge they so desperately need.

We continue to campaign to change the policies of our leaders. But in the meantime, we can help plug the gap by providing emergency aid and vital services to those affected by the global refugee crisis.

All the money raised at the event will go to the amazing grassroots charity ‘Help Refugees’ which acts fast to get aid and services directly and immediately to the people who need it most. Started by friends in 2015, the organisation is now the largest distributors of aid of any grassroots organisation across Europe, funding projects in 22 Refugee camps in Greece as well as camps and settlements in Paris, Turkey, Syria and Lebanon. Learn more about the work your money will fund here: http://www.helprefugees.org.uk/

We look forward to partying with you in May!

If you want to donate to 'Help Refugees' but don't want to party, please follow this link: https://mydonate.bt.com/donation/start.html?charity=127188

The #FUNKOFF Live @ The Hospital Club

Fresh from funking up New York, Secret Garden Party and The Hospital Club , the last leg of #FUNKOFF summer tour rolls back into London, for the biggest, baddest and most boogielicous #FUNKOFF yet...

The FUNKOFF is an all-vinyl DJ battle for soul supremacy between two jacked-up-on-steroids soul brothers - Mister Mumbles and Uncle Vibes.

Played out across ten rounds of funk-fuelled disco, hip hop, boogie, breaks and beyond with each round being set amongst an outlandish yet banter led scenario, each DJ has to play the Funkiest and most suitable tune and it’ll be you – the crowd with the help of a special mystery judge will help pass judgment on what’s funky…and what’s funkier.

So pull on your boogie shoes and prepare to flex your funk muscles…because the #FUNKOFF is going to funk you up. 

Let’s get reeeeeady to FUNKOFF!

See here to get a flavour... Let’s get reeeeeady to FUNKOFF!

#FUNKOFFNYC @ SOHO HOUSE, NEW YORK CITY: 4th JULY EXTRAVAGANZA

Do you promise to funk? The whole funk? And nothing but the funk?

Are you ready to pledge allegiance to the funky first state? Will you boldly funk where no man has funked before?

If so, let's get reeeeeeady to FUNKOFF!!!


Born on the radio airwaves in London 2013, The #FUNKOFF has brought the boogie to many a prestigious venue and is now all set to make your 4th July funktastic as the #FUNKOFF crosses the Atlantic and comes to NYC for the second time, this time up on the roof at Soho House NYC. 


The #FUNKOFF is a 10 round, pound for pound boogie laden extravaganza pitting UK Funk Luminaries Mister Mumbles Vs Uncle Vibes against each in a show  that involves humorous banter, dramatic twists and some of the finest funk tunes you’ll ever shake your bottom to.

Each round opens with a unique scenario for which each DJ must use as a basis for their track selection. The ultimate aim is to choose a tune not only befitting of the scenario, but also far and away funkier than that of the opponent

With a guest judge on hand to separate the funk from the junk, a range of funktified cocktails and of course, plenty of audience participation, the #FUNKOFF is an event not to be missed! 

So come join us as funk, soul, boogie and disco jams collide to put some dip in your hip and glide in your stride. Let's get ready to #FUNKOFF!

Innocent Unplugged Festival

to May 30

Innocent Unplugged Festival

Spinning with the mighty DJ Axel Lewis on the legendary Wheel-Up Soundsystem in the woods!

Leave your phone at home and escape to innocent un-plugged, a festival for grown-ups in a woodland clearing in Kent.

Sometimes the stream of emails, whatsapp messages and Facebook notifications can get on top of you. Life’s a bit too connected these days, which is why we’re unplugging for real.

No Wi-Fi, no texts, no traditional electricity. Just a load of people camping in a forest clearing with great music, real conversations and lungfuls of fresh air.

So forget about Facebook. Turn off Twitter. Say goodbye to Google.

We’ll see you in the woods.
