Doug Hream Blunt is an ethereal, elusive character.
With fans ranging from Ariel Pink to his namesake Dean Blunt, the San Francisco resident’s cult mythology as a ‘funk outsider’ continues to grow, almost to the same levels as William Onyeabor, partly due to the sheer scarcity of live shows that he plays anywhere, let alone in the UK.
For this extremely rare show, we’ll be treated to a whole host of artists on the night, including Sierra Leonean musician Janka Nabay, the first artist in his home country to record bubu music by reworking the traditional bamboo flutes and metal pipes with electronic instrumentation.
Alongside them on the bill will be the full Luaka Bop family behind the decks, as well as some very special guests that will be revealed on the night.
A mystical genius, this is a one off opportunity to catch a true maverick in person.
