Oxford, it’s time for another check-up 

On Tuesday of 7th week the Doctor’s dose will once again keep you grooving and smiling all night long, as the curtains begin to fall on first term. As this is our 3rd event, and because 3 is a magic number, the Doctor has some special tricks lined up for you. He’s going to put on a spectacle in his own distinctive way and we cannot wait to share the experience.

His aim remains the same as always: he wants all of you to put on your dancing shoes, adorn your waviest fabrics, and let your hair down with your nearest and dearest.

So, put down that godforsaken book and come on down to the feel-good theatre; we’ve got the formula, you’ve got the vibes.

Reggae / Dancehall / Rum

The Laid Blak sound takes massive inspiration from ska and reggae, but has often been described as ‘street soul’, taking in dancehall, soul, hip hop, funk and jazz, whilst of course never forgetting their jungle heritage. Smash hits like Bristol Love and Red have become ubiquitous around the festival circuit, even getting covered by Ed Sheeran. Live... they're one of the very best.

On the decks Count Skylarkin plus LB's own Bunjy & Peng rock the dance with big and bouncy reggae, dancehall, hip hop and drum & bass till the small hours. / /

Our next instalment will be provided by DABJ all-star Big Miz, and it promises to be even more raucous than the first (if you can imagine such a thing). Standing out in Glasgow’s notoriously saturated electronic scene is a tough ask for anyone. But this hasn’t stopped Big Miz from asserting himself right at the centre of the city’s grassroots, cellar dance scene.
