Passing Clouds

Movimientos Xmas Fiesta

‘Tis the season! So let’s get tropical at Dalston’s finest venue, Passing Clouds. We’ve got a killer line up for you to blast away those winter blues. The whirlwind from the Andes: Lokandes, will be celebrating frontman and madman Kanti’s birthday so it’s sure to be a special one. Plus we’ve got the afro-tropical explosion and bright colours of Mango Rescue Team. On the decks we’ve got the bouncy edits from Bristol favorite tropical wiseguy Hiphoppatamus. While upstairs HMS Sweet Charity bring Flamingods DJs and DJ Eggs Legs for some psychedelic afro-latin goodness.

Movimientos Xmas Fiesta

Sweet Afro-Latin Rhythms with Reggae, Cumbia and conscious vibes
One of the truly exceptional live acts emerging from the Latin community in London, taking the melodies and energy of Andean music and mixing it with Rumba, Reggae and Afro-Latin rhythms. The band unites musicians and instruments from Peru, Bolivia, Spain, China and the UK, and sets their highly original music, alongside socially conscious lyrics and a super tight rhythm section. Having released their first album two years ago they are currently working on the follow up due out soon.

10 Piece, Tropical, Afro, psychedelic big band
Big band tropical anarchy with Sheffield's Mango Rescue Team. They combine world music and the avant-garde, and aims to link traditional British psychedelic culture with Latin-American and African influences. The result is a high energy 10-piece band augmenting a standard psych-rock set-up with horns, keyboards and extra percussion. They leap from calypso to funky merengue, from afrobeat to cumbia with flourishes of flamenco, samba, North African Rai, Central African rumba, mariachi and rock'n'roll all while switching languages.

Rumba / Flamenco with added Latina Sabor
A Rumba collective comprised of an eclectic group of talented musicians. Re-creating the very best songs of Latin Culture infecting them with a spark of world music and exploding into Rumba Flamenco. Tunes that are sure to get you dancing!

Sunshine music for the masses!
Exotic flavours, soulful melodies and party beats, the happy hippo always brings the sunshine no matter what the weather. The Hippo has created his own unique party vibe by infusing Latin, Caribbean and Afro styles into his tastefully produced selections of Breaks, House, Drum & Bass and Hiphop. With residences across the UK and a staple of every festival under the sun is currently releasing his Tropical Wiseguy series fusing Mambo with D&B, Latin and Jamaican favourites with breaks, and flips a disco classic with his favourite new vibe... Tropical Jazzstep.

Dr. Barnardo and Sue Ryder are 'On a mission to preserve and propagate music and cover art that might otherwise be lost to time and taste.' The Doctor and Sue have been digging the crates and cardboard boxes of thrift stores and charity shops for over 10 a second wonderful life to discarded and forgotten music and cover art. In 2008 they dropped anchor with their infamous ship shaped stage at Glastonbury and have been a staple ever since. Resident Miss Molly will also be representing, as well as special guests Flamingods DJs spinning a mix of, healthy dose of late night downtown Hong Kong, funky soulful Africa, delicious Thai grooves, underground psychedelic dance from across Asia, and psychedelic eastern tropical vibes and DJ Eggs Legs with his tropical omelete of Highlife, Afro funk, soukous, makossa, samba, mambo, shangaan and many more.?
