Duo Maft Sai and Chris Menist are the two DJs spreading the gospel of Thailand’s shamefully underrated funkadelica.

ata kakATA KAK
FRIDAY 10 JUNE, MOTH CLUB
20 years went by before a serendipitous happening saw Ata Kak’s cassette fall into the hands Awesome Tapes From Africa founder. Armed with his afro dance-rap, his sped-up highlife plays like true tropical house, straight from Ghana. Lauded by Noisey and FACT, his remastered offering Obaa Sima merges funk-inflected breakbeats with glittering with synths and overlaid by rhythmic harmonies in the Ghanian Twi dialect.

dilly dallyDILLY DALLY
SATURDAY 11 JUNE, SHACKLEWELL ARMS
Dilly Dally’s sucker-punching indie rock is the type of band you need in your life. With a throat scratching delivery and a talent for riffs that would make J Mascis jealous, the Toronto quartet caused Pitchfork to compare lead singer Katie Monks to Kurt Cobain on new single Purple Rage. A rush of aggressive guitars, it brims with the kind of teen angst you never grow out of.

Brian_Jonestown_Massacre-band-2016-01THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE (DJ SET)
SUNDAY 12 JUNE, MOTH CLUB
Brian Jonestown Massacre’s shimmering hammonds and slack guitars certified them as the innovators of desert psychedelia. You’d know the apathetic drawl of Anton Newcombe anywhere. After 2015’s grandly ambitious Musique de Film Imaginé LP, the psych-rocking frontman will spin his finest selection of sun-drenched sounds into the early hours.
