Easy Skankin presents: Huey Morgan (Fun Loving Criminals) DJ Set + J-Felix (Tru Thoughts)
Bar from 5:00pm. Doors 8pm – 12am. Standing.
Huey Morgan is the much loved, charismatic front man of acclaimed rock and hip hop group Fun Lovin’ Criminals, a group formed in 1993, releasing a total of seven albums. The New Yorker, though, is also a fine DJ who has a whole lifetime’s worth of experience to draw upon when he is laying down one of his compelling selections. He does so all over the world, at big parties, more intimate get togethers and acclaimed clubs and festivals in equal measure. In every DJ set, he retains a great sense of pace and balance and always excels at segueing the right records the right time.
In terms of sounds, Huey, who was born in New York in 1968, is obviously a skilled guitarist, but also has a passion for many other types of music. Being half-Puerto Rican and half-Irish, he has a varied musical background that finds him just as able to reach for loose funk, soul, reggae, cool jazz and hip hop as indie rock, and indeed anything else. Notoriously amusing and full of charm, Huey always carries this over into the sets he plays in clubs, meaning you can be sure that your audience will have the time of their lives. What’s more, this rock renaissance talent is also regularly on TV shows like Nevermind the Buzzcocks and is a fine TV presenter and writer with a wealth of knowledge about the music he plays.
Bristol born, Brighton based instrumentalist, producer and DJ, J-Felix is flying the flag for Modern Funk and UK Soul with dubby undertones and a nod to the dancefloor.
