Saturday 30th November @ Light Bar, Shoreditch / Finals @ Madame Jojos, Soho – Sunday 1st December

House Dance is one of the most popular growing dance trends of the moment. David Vilo aka D-lo is the pioneer of the scene here in London having established a weekly Sunday evening party ‘Free Your Soul’ at Madame Jojos in Soho where dancers from all over London come to express themselves on a weekly basis to a sound track of djs spinning all different styles of music from hip hop to boogie to house.

The party now into its fourth year has become so big that D-lo now runs a more grander spin off event called ‘House Dance UK’ with dancers coming from much further a field as Europe and America to ‘battle’ off to become the champ and claim the £300 grand cash prize. This year’s event is spread over two days with the ‘pre-selection’s’ taking place during the day at The Light Bar loft space in the heart of Shoreditch a fantastic location, followed by a work shop and the ‘Finals’ (last eight competitors) at Madame Jojos on the Sunday night (1st Dec).

Last year’s winner from France, Babson will be on the judging panel of this year’s event alongside Mitch and Frankie J. We’re pleased to invite DJ Veusty from Holland, Greg Gauthier from Dance Culture in Paris and Matt L-S and Jamesey from reputable UK record label and events company Makin’ Moves to spin the tunes on both days.

This years’ event promises to be the biggest and best yet!

Pioneers of the London Acid Jazz scene, The Brand New Heavies, are a British music institution whose unique mix of jazz, funk and soul has lit up the UK music scene for well over two decades. Over the years The Brand New Heavies have been responsible for some of the UK’s biggest R & B/ soul tracks, scoring 16 top 40 singles including ‘Dream On Dreamer’ and ‘You’ve Got A Friend’, as well as over two million album sales.

Ever present founder members Jan Kincaid, Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy (on drums/keyboards, guitar and bass respectively) conceived the band in the London suburb of Ealing in 1985, and they became influential in creating what became known as the acid jazz scene of the early 90’s.

The Brand New Heavies have been ploughing their own furrow the British music scene for over a quarter of a century and are respected the world over. With their new album and tour dates, both in the UK and abroad in the offing, they look set to continue that tradition for many years to come.
