Host Ben Osborne is joined by Glasgow’s rising block-rocking act, North Atlas, disco cowboys Flying Mojito Bros and Afrohouse DJ Bobby Glo, to launch Musiques Sans Frontiers, a new monthly pan European night, at the Social.
North Atlas and Osborne play London having just headlined Noise of Art’s stage at France’s uber-hip Chateau Perché festvial – held in the gardens of one of France’s most enchanting Castles. Hailing from Glasgow, North Atlas are an electro-rock quartet who’ve achieved a lot in their short time together. They’ve supported bands such as Feeder and Reverend And The Makers and their shows in Glasgow routinely sell-out. They’ve notched-up festival appearances at Standon Calling, King Tuts New Year’s Revolution, Tenement Trail and Meadows Festival, and been featured by KERRANG!, Scotland On Sunday, BBC Radio Scotland, STV and The Skinny Magazine. Their single ‘Another Ocean’ was produced by award-winning producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns).
Flying Mojito Bros are Pan-American disco bandoleros that have been rising through London’s club-land making Americana danceable again. Producer/musician Ben Chetwood and DJ/digger Jack Sellen’s shows feature on-the-fly remixing, edits, live instrumentation and tripped-out visuals. They specialise in turning soft-rock shoe shuffles into tasteful dance floor dynamite. Their refry of 77:78’s Chilli, on Heavenly recordings, was the ubiquitous Balearic track of summer 2018. Their new unreleased collaboration with Ben Osborne went down mighty fine at Glastonbury’s Festival on Worthy Ranch.
Ben Osborne is a DJ, musician, and award-winning creative producer . He plays clubs and festivals internationally, has residencies in London and Prague and has a habit of playing unusual spaces, such as DJing at the top of an exploding BT Tower for the Olympics, as well as art galleries such as The Tate, National Theatre and National Portrait Gallery. He’s presented long running specialist radio shows for Xfm, NME Radio and Totallyradio (Brighton) and has written books on the history of UK clubs and the Arctic Monkeys and written extensively for national press and magazines.
New North London based Afro-House DJ Bobby Glo, has broad and eclectic tastes that range from Indie to Neo-Soul and jazz funk. Her current sets specialise in Lo-fi and Afro House and, although still a fresh face in the DJ world, she’s already appeared at several festivals in 2019.
