On May 27th we are hyped to invite Drum & Bass legend DJ Marky behind the decks to celebrate his second release with BBE Music, ‘Influences Vol. 2.‘
Globally renowned for his vibrant, melodic sets and productions, Brazil’s DJ Marky has been playing records for over a quarter of a century, making his debut at the tender age of twelve (yes, really). In the late 90’s, Marky’s fresh energy and eclectic influences provided a much-needed tonic for the UK’s Drum & Bass scene; his sun-drenched crossover anthem ‘LK’ eventually entering the UK Top 20 in 2002. The intervening years have been spent spinning records all over the world to rapt audiences, as well as absorbing more and more wide-ranging global sounds to add to his distinctive style. Marky’s long awaited debut album finally dropped in 2015, aptly titled ‘My Heroes’, reflecting this uncommonly humble artist’s habit of constantly championing his favourite musicians and musical inspirations.
With this unselfish spirit firmly in mind, BBE Music are proud to announce the release of ‘Influences Vol. 2’, a compilation album and DJ mix showcasing a selection of Marky’s favourite music, created with a healthy disdain for genre-puritans and an emphasis on fun. Taking in traditional Brazilian music, disco, acid jazz, early house and of course a little Drum & Bass, ‘Influences’ is more of an invitation to a barbecue in the São Paulo sunshine than a chin-stroking ‘back to mine’ selection. We’ll be celebrating this powerful selection and hearing some of these influential sounds on the day.
‘Influences Vol.2’ is available for pre-order now on the BBE Music website and will be available to buy in-store on the day: https://goo.gl/uihAAX
The shop opens at 12pm and music will be from 3 – 8pm.
FREE ENTRY! All ages welcome & kid friendly. Food & drink available next door at The Institute of Light and good vibes all day long.
