Shocking crowds by fusing funk fuelled D+B with a high-octane live jazz outfit; the London Elektricity Big Band has rocked shows across the globe with rousingly slick 22-piece brass band performances with the highlight being Slovakia’s incredible Pohoda festival.
The ‘Live At Pohoda’ LP showcases 12 classic tracks, handpicked for their unique live re-creation. Available on a highly limited orange London Elektricity lightning bolt USB stick, in a custom designed foil-printed box, sold exclusively on the Hospital Shop – an essential collectable for any London Elek fan worth their salt.
Featuring tracks from across the full London Elektricity discography, we see iconic songs such as the loungecore manifest ‘South Eastern Dream’ and the autobiographical jazztastic ‘Syncopated City Revisited’ taken from the iconic 2008 album and available live for the first time ever following their high voltage execution at one of Eastern-Europe’s grandest festivals. Add to this ‘Billion Dollar Gravy’, ‘The Plan That Cannot Fail’, ‘Different Drum’, and many others and this exquisite musical medley re-defines the possibilities of live D+B performance.
“I’ve been gigging with various bands throughout my adult life, been lucky enough to DJ at amazing D+B parties for the last 21 years and this year we toured the London Elektricity Big Band. All the gigs were amazing in their own way but the show at Pohoda Festival in Slovakia takes the biscuit. It was many levels higher than any show i’ve ever been involved with. Let’s hope there’s even better to come!” – London Elektricity
