EVENT: Ain't It Black – June 10th @ Favela Chic, London


Aint It Black, the quirky houseparty event of London, will be hosting its last residency at Favala Chic as it prepares to move to Dalston. The magic has been going on for 18 months, mixing afro funk/electro soul/bmore and other genres of music to draw a fun loving, warm-hearted community of people from all walks of life to celebrate the joy of dance.

Stripped of trend,hype or fool-hearted attempt to relive the glory days of previous decades, AIB strives to continue to be the platform for people to simply be. The outfit have also been blessed to collaborate with other up-coming nights such as YO MAMA and 7 YEAR GLITCH to spread the gospel of simple, sweat induced ecstasy.

Summer Sweet Spesh will be a kaleidoscope of colour and sound that will send you into a jamboree fit. So work those ethnic prints, leggings or whatever puts you in the summer mood!

Performing on the night will be Lingo Scott, the futuristic artist who combines elements of electro-pop with funk and hip hop. This all singing,rapping and hip thrusting artist will leave you dripping from his infectious stage presence. Influenced by the likes of Rick James,Prince,Slave and The Smiths, Lingo stresses on having your dancing shoes on as you slide. You’ve been warned!


We are also honoured to welcome back the inspirational Rita Ray on the wheels of Steel. For those of you who are hip to sounds of the motherland, Rita is part of the internationally renowned afro-centric duo known as ‘The Shrine’. The Afro-Beat expert was a co-host at the World Music Awards and Presents BBC: AFRICA ON YOUR STREETS. With a colossal collection of world music, vaguely divided into genres this set shall be nothing less then cosmic.
