BBE Celebrate 20 Years with Rich Medina and more
BBE has without doubt been one of the world’s finest record labels of the last two decades for lovers of vintage soul, house, disco, jazz, funk and beyond. Their perfectly curated compilations take pride of place in most dance music lover’s collections. They celebrate 20 wonderful years with a very special all day takeover of the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch on Sunday 26 June. The event starts at 3pm on the hotel’s stunning 7th floor terrace and runs until 1am in the Miranda club basement.
The bird’s-eye 7th floor bar, 100 room and terrace takes over the entire rooftop of the Ace Hotel and offer incredible views of the city. DJs from 3pm – 10pm include John Morales, Phil Asher, Stuart Patterson and Kev Beadle with more DJs who have released on the label joining label founder Pete BBE. The perfect setting to begin the day gently and soulful with laid back tracks on the terrace before upping the tempo and moving inside to the 100 Room. Entry for the afternoon session is free but strictly invite only, please sign up HERE but don’t delay.
After the free daytime session we move downstairs to the hotel’s Miranda basement. Rich Medina is flying in from the states to host his legendary Jump N Funk party. Starting life as a small New York event aimed at raising awareness for Fela Kuti’s musical message, Rich’s Jump N Funk party has now been rocking dancefloors across the globe for over 15 years. Rich releases his Jump N Funk compilation on BBE this month and he will be dropping the infectious sound of afrobeat from 8.30pm-1am in Miranda. Tickets are just a fiver and available from the button below.
BBE will also be hosting the hotel’s lobby bar from 7-11pm with Keb Darge and friends making for a full day’s takeover of inspirational music in this amazing setting.
