Hot Border Special
November 23 @ 8:00 pm
Take a blisteringly energetic and danceable trip with London’s Hot Border Special – There really isn’t anything quite like it. With Influences ranging from afrobeat to rock, highlife to funk, and even a hint towards samba, it’s an uplifting and joyous audio mystery tour – marvellous surprises seem to be hiding around every corner. The musicianship is tight – raw, rootsy and percussion heavy rhythms underpin lush interwoven guitar melodies – and its seriously rich, so rich in fact that you don’t even notice the absence of a vocalist! Up tempo bangers like ‘El Frantico’ and ‘Hot Border Express’ get the bodies moving, while the more dark and sinister tracks like ‘Mulartoo Deetoo’ and ‘Wei Wu Wei’ transport your soul to an iboga style trance.
