Fred Perry Subculture are excited to host the fifth Subsonic Live event at The Garage in Islington this Friday. Once again a line up of unique musical acts have been brought together to ensure a memorable night of energised and ecclectic pop.
Headlining the event is Chew Lips, whose frontwoman, Alicia 'Tiggs' Huertas, is known for her charismatic stage presence and infectious melodies. Appearing on the radar in 2009 with their debut single "Solo" followed by the album “Unicorn”, released in 2010 to critical acclaim, Chew Lips are one to watch.
Support comes from Fiction, who recently signed to Moshi Moshi and have toured with the likes of Warpaint, Klaxons and Metronomy. London based duo, I Am A Camera, will be performing their addictive electro-pop tunes, whilst DJ sets from Princess Julia, The Lovely Jonjo, The Fly and White Heat will keep the dance floor buzzing.

This Friday sees Fred Perry Subculture host the fourth instalment of Sub-sonic Live, a unique live music concept that has previously held sold out performances by Factory Floor, The Horrors and Andrew Weatherall. For the fourth event, we’re particularly excited to see electro-funk and former Hacienda resident Greg Wilson bring his ‘Reels of Steel’ show to The Garage, Islington. Reels of Steel has earned a cult following and features a combination of bespoke visuals and Wilson’s eclectic musical selection. Equally exciting is the inclusion of a rare UK performance by Afrika Bambaataa: celebrated as The Godfather of hip-hop and a key player in the fledgling electro-funk movement.
30 years on from its original release, Greg speaks of the profound influence Afrika Bambaataa’s track ‘Planet Rock’ has had on his career:
"This was a true hybrid, its impact, influence and inspiration an absolute gamechanger. On a personal level (the event is) a big one, for I finally get to meet the man who had such a bearing on my own DJ destiny, spinning Electro-Funk in the North of England back in '82, and taking a lot of stick from the black music purists for daring to play something so radically different as "Planet Rock"
"In a sense, the event represents both the past and the future for me, which is always the equation I’m looking to balance. From old school roots to new horizons, it all connects."
Disco Bloodbath, Psychemagick and Dollop DJ's will also feature in what's set to be one of the most exciting Sub-Sonic events yet.
