'Weird Together' is the new studio and live project from Dick Johnson and Nick Dwyer, spurred on by Nick's love of exotic music and crazy sounds from all far corners of the globe, and Dick's love of taking said sounds and moulding them and sculpting them into solid grooves that make people wanna dance lots.
After years of mainly late night / early morning "yeah, let's make some music together, sounds like fun" - the boys finally did it, and after a particularly inspirational session with some old Ethiopian jazz records 'Weird Together' was born.
A couple of years passed - Dick became a cycling champ, and in-between the ADD and off gallivanting round the globe Nick got a bit sidetracked but toward the end of the of 2011 a pact was made, and they decided to go at it proper with the aim of launching a full live show. Teaming up with a wide range of different musical folk who come from all over the world the boys have been busy in the Red Bull Studio's recording Caribbean Steel Pan Orchestras, Burundian drum ensembles, Sudanese vocalists and Ghanian master percussionists and that's just the beginning.
'Weird Together' promises to be an explosion of sounds and cultures never seen before on stage leaving no far-flung musical stone unturned. Expect the first fruits from the Red Bull Studio Sessions to be heard over summer and of course gearing up to the 'Weird Together' debut at Splore 2012. Shit's gonna get weird.
10pm DJs & door on. Dancers, drinks deals and the usual till late.
6.30pm Casa Cassette is open for eats!
Sick Disco is teaming up with 'Flagship' who will be creating a new atmosphere for Sick Disco this month of March, reworking the Cassette space with decor themed out like a quarantine jungle. Think 28 Days later, think E.T's quarantine scene, think protective boiler suits and dress up! Free entry for those who do.
