Cover Up October – Swamp Funk Special feat. Raindog

Message me for guestlist. More funky fresh goodness from the Cover Up collective. You know the score by now. Funk, boogaloo, hip hop, Brasilian goodness, and happy vibes on the dancefloor. It’s all about the groove. This month we have a special treat for you, SWAMP FUNK from RAINDOG. Never heard of it, get on down and try it for yourself, deeeeelicious.

The Fontanas have been tearing it up on the festival scene all summer, and doesn’t it show. Tighter than a camel’s arsehole in a sandstorm, and looking like they’ve all been dragged through a series of hedges backwards, they’ll rock your sweet world.

DJ C-Boogie’s got bonus beats this week. Funk, soul, rare groove, hip hop, reggae, ragga, covers, mashups, Salsa, brasilian funk, baile funk, etc. etc. etc.

‘South of Memphis, North of Peckham’
From the deep South via the swamps of the Deptford Delta: RAINDOG are the result of a shared love of swamp funk and Southern country soul. After enlisting the sweet vocal talents of Siobhan Parr the band hit the ground running. Think Little Feat, meets Creedence Clearwater Revival at Tony Joe Whites’ Bayou and you’re in the right ball park. Having cut their teeth playing a succession of cut throat road-house gigs, RAINDOG are making tracks for Shepherds Bush for a special set one off live set. Live music kicks off at 9pm.
