On the evening of Monday 9th August, the main warehouse of the PIAS distribution group was destroyed in a blaze in Enfield. The warehouse contained a large amount of stock from the UK’s main independent music labels. Although the stock was insured, the loss is having a marked effect on hundreds of indie labels, whose economic position is pretty precarious in the first place.

AIM (the association of independent music) has put together a fund to help affected labels keep afloat, and benefits for labels are being held nationwide, co-ordinated by Label Love.
Musician and producer Richard Norris has organised a benefit at Favela London, featuring a fine line up of London based DJ talent. ‘Everyone on the bill has been affected by this one way or another’, says Richard. ‘This is a chance to put a little back into the independent music community that we are all part of. And also to have a cracking night.’

DJ’s include Ashley Beedle, Justin Robertson, Pete Herbert, Richard Norris, Nathan Detroit, Ross Allen and Andrew Weatherall playing a rockabilly set.

THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT! The DJ’s, PR, promoters, designers and venue have all given their services for free. All door money will go directly into the AIM fund.

Groove merchants, The Filthy Six (Acid Jazz Records), are the most exciting, authentic Soul Jazz outfit in the UK today and have established themselves as one of the finest live acts around. Their blistering horns, searing guitar and gut-wrenching Hammond are fuelled by the hardest grooving rhythm section you’re likely to hear this side of Funk Town; producing a hip-shakingly powerful combination of jazz, funk and boogaloo in keeping with the finest traditions of the classic Blue Note sound.

The Filthy Six are one of Wah Wah’s favourite live bands to host. Their feet friendly, high octane sound is infectious! Make sure you check them out.

And they’re supported by Wah Wah guru’s of afro-disco, latin, dubstep, soul and boogie. Get up to get on down.

A full bodied soundscape is the result

His enigmatic stories, howling vocals and furious guitar playing make for some exceptional entertainment. Bottle-neck style blues and psychedelic 60’s rock, John’s music is a real melting-pot of diverse musical traditions.


More Like Trees promise a crazed guitar and a mesmerizing set complement Joshua Whitehouse’s vocals to the nth degree, along with some serious backing beats from a cajon and double bass – resulting in some drum and bass like acoustics. Taking the warehouse party scene by storm – these guys are ones to watch out for.
