From summer daytime parties to packed Saturday night events at Brixton’s Prince Of Wales hotspot, Deep Into Soul honks its birthday horn loud n’ proud on Saturday April 8th when it celebrates its 6th Anniversary with New York Body & Soul man and king of edits, Danny Krivit flying in for an Exclusive set. Blowing out the candles and partying among the balloons are London legends Phil Asher (Restless Soul) and Afronaught (Co-op/Bugz In The Attic) teaming up for a historic and very special back to back freestyle set crossing all the genres.
Marking this momentous occasion is New York’s ‘Body & Soul’ lynch-pin and legendary king of the disco edits, Danny Krivit playing an Exclusive Birthday set, flush from another incredible year headlining festivals and his own events around the world.
New York legend Danny Krivit, started DJing at age 14, learning from all the greats, including James Brown, David Mancuso and Larry Levan, and his house style is infused with his funk, soul, and disco edits (under the Mr. K name).
His list of residencies and associations read like the dictionary of music he is. Responsible for the immensely popular 718 Sessions and one-third of the Body & Soul collective with Francois Kervorkian and Joe Claussell, Danny Krivit continues to wow dance music fans with his encyclopedeic knowledge and amazing layered and skilled mixing sets.
London legends Phil Asher (Restless Soul) and Afronaught (founder member of Bugz In The Attic) turn up the heat further in Room 2 with a rare back to back freestyle sessions spinning across the genres and joining the dots from dub to house, broken beat to jazz and much more
From practically creating a new genre of music, broken beat, to co-founding the seminal broken beat London night Co-op and being a founding member of Bugz in the Attic who injected their original energy into UK dance music, Afronaught is still heavily in demand, recently vibing up the Boiler Room sound-tracking ’28 minutes of full-on dance circles, limb-shaking and broad smiles’.
West London house pioneer, Phil Asher’s reputation as an international DJ/Producer, and integral figure in London’s dance music community has been cemented by his impressive catalogue of releases and remixes In the early 2000s, Asher was central to the evolution of broken beat, as a founder of the Co-Op club, and as a prolific artist such as Restless Soul and Phlash with countless remixes and soulful tracks on labels such as Versatile, Estereo and Slip n’Slide.
