ROOM 1: BETTE SMITH (Live) - Band on stage around midnight (90 Min Live Set)

“It was culturally alive and it still is. There were a lot of block parties in the summer. They would import bands from Memphis and Mississippi and us brown and black girls would be jamming to these groups,” says Bette Smith, as she walks around the neighborhood of her upbringing, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY.

She’s just back from the UK where she made her new album ‘Goodthing’ (July 12, 2024 / Kartel Music Group) with GRAMMY Award-winning producer Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, James Blunt, James Bay, Anonhi & The Johnsons, Sia, Corinne Bailey Rae, Tina Turner). Hogarth attests, “Bette is the real deal. Her delivery is the truth and comes straight from the heart. She is able to communicate with ease with her wonderful gift of a voice and I was delighted to work on this record.”

Bette’s on the cusp of a new chapter, with an album that is poised to take over airwaves fire and wide and seems sure to find her a much wider audience in the days to come.

Blessed with a voice described as “raspy,” “sassy,” “raunchy” and “sweet ’n soulful,” Bette grippingly fuses the soul, rock & roll, funk, blues, and gospel music she heard in her Brooklyn youth into something all her own. Yet, ‘Goodthing’ is no retro album.

MOJO called her “the next big-voiced soul sensation out of Brooklyn.” Of her success, she says, “It’s really a thank you God situation. It’s just been a whirlwind of meeting people from different places and countries.”

Know this, you will dig and definitely get down!!!!

ROOM 2: The South London Soul Train 2 room line up completed in by too damn hot SLST residents DJ ANDY SMITH & NICK HALKES, here to take you to REACH UP DISCO WONDERLAND. The heavyweight duo dropping 80’s boogie, soul, funk, disco and proto house, evoking the spirit and dipping into the soundtrack of legendary NYC clubs such as 'Paradise Garage’ & 'Studio 54’. A night highlighting the sounds that emerged as the 70’s, turned into the 80’s and the DNA of club music as we know it today was being written. The dance floor awaits.
