TEAK X BLUE HONEY: NYE ASCENSION
Tue 31 Dec
The Teak mob are often found in the basement of an antiques emporium taking their DIY approach to dance music; the Blue Honey crowd making bao buns in their cafe by day and spinning disco records by night. The two are usually mutually exclusive Cardiffian nightlife ambassadors, but in the spirit of festivity (and apparently transcendance) have become one.
Under the semi-ironic theme of ascension, the so-called “ceremonies” (assumed to be representing sets) led by Andy Warphole, James Teak, Esther [pictured], David J Bull and many more. All set to provide enlightenment through the medium of disco, funk, house, tech-house and everything in between. Teak and Blue Honey are both known for their alternative styles, themes and venues that draw a crowd, but the reason the crowds return is for their upbeat, high tempo and eclectic sounds.
Expect plenty of retro-sampling, hi-hat-heavy beats and funk-infused basslines, all under the roof of a Cardiffian church (familiar to the nightlife enthusiast), which is proposed to be filled with an audience adorned in all white. New Years Eve is usually a night spent waiting on an ultimately underwhelming confetti blast on the stroke of midnight. However, nights such as this have the potential to provide avoidance of the routine disappointment, and allow for an alternative ending to the year.
