The Beirut Groove Collective at The Jago

The Beirut Groove Collective (BGC) returns to East-London grassroots venue The Jago, on Friday 11th November.

Now entering its 13th year, the Beirut Groove Collective is a collective of vinyl DJs, crate diggers, music obsessives and artists. For over a decade, the BGC has thrown one of the SWANA region’s most popular underground clubnights in Beirut, the BGC All-Nighter, which has built an international reputation for its distinctive sound and attracted some of the world's leading DJs, turntabalists, crate diggers and record collectors. In 2021, the collective brought their clubnights to London with sell-out monthly residencies in alternative venues across the city, as well as guest appearances at festivals, clubs and community spaces around the world.

At their parties, the BGC plays obscure and underground clubbing records from the ‘60s-‘80s from the Middle East, Africa and around the world, an eclectic mix of Lebanese ‘60s Garage and Beat, Bellydance Psych, Arabic Disco, Latin Tarab, Armenian estradayin, Ethiopian and Sudanese Jazz, Rare Soul and Funk, Psychedelia and much more.

The BGC was named in New York Magazine, as one of the ‘Top 15’ parties around the world and has been featured everywhere from The Guardian and Monocle Magazine to ARTE, the BBC, Time Out London and Vice.

This month, the BGC hosts Zag Erlat, the DJ and record collector behind My Analog Journal, the YouTube channel that curates vinyl-only mixes on a weekly basis and has quickly built a cult following.
