Preview: Afriquoi + DJ Khalab + iZem (DJ set) + Cervo @ Mangle E8 (London, 21st April 2017)

Soundcrash-Afriquoi-A3

It’s Friday, so…roll out the red carpet for the weekend and get up-close and personal with the dance floor at the best music party in town!

You’ll be dancing the night away to the uplifting West African vibes performed by London-based 5-piece band Afriquoi, entrancing Afro-electro grooves chosen and mixed by DJ Khalab, a tasteful and eclectic selection of iZem and “northerner” and a uniquely exotic set played by Cervo (from Manchester-based Banana Hill duo).

It will all happen under Mangle E8’s roof in London Fields (which is open as usual), where the Soundcrash crew has organised six hours of all-embracing, funky and earthy sounds for one of the most thrilling all-nighters of the month.
