LONDON EVENT: A TRIBUTE TO PRINCE, 7th August @ Cargo

Cargo presents a series of tributes to 4 music heroes. As the public invite says, “Come down to our yard and enjoy some of the best music ever made. BBQ and cocktail specials included.”prince_webOn August 7th Dj Kyri, founder of the underground soul label R2 records, presents a 2 hour tribute to Prince. This is what he has to say: “I fell in love with Prince’s music when I first heard Purple Rain. I was 18 then, and I basically spent the next 3 years of my life listening exclusively to Prince and other Minneapolis funk artists’ music. Non-stop. It became a bit of an obsession to the point where I’d often have Prince, and his music, appear in my dreams. At that time, being a Prince fan made you a bit of an outcast. Everyone hated Prince in favour of Michael Jackson. This will be my personal tribute to Prince and the rest of the Minneapolis funk artists. I owe a lot to them.”
