Simon Says 2017

BUY TICKETS HERE!

Simon Says Local is our first East London fundraiser to remember and celebrate the life of the wonderful Simon Goss – son, husband, dad, mentor, social worker, record label boss, DJ and late of this parish.

Simon was tragically taken from us by lung cancer, only 10 weeks after his diagnosis, having just turned 44. Simon liked a pint or 3 and when we moved to Leytonstone from Hackney, almost exactly 10 years ago, the Red Lion was a pub and club venue called Zulus. We certainly had the odd night out there (sometimes very odd!) but it wasn’t really Simon’s cup of tea.

When Zulus closed, the site stood empty for a couple of years and Simon often talked about what he would do with the space if he had the money. A community hub, great food, somewhere you could take your kids (he sat outside pubs, A LOT, when his own kids were young!), an affordable club space and DJ’s meeting a wide range of tastes (though having been a resident DJ at Camden’s Jazz Café for 5 years, he was a soul, jazz, funk and hip hop boy at heart!)

Apart from the fact that he would have had family members doing the catering (!!), his vision was pretty close to what Antic have achieved with the Red Lion. Sadly, Simon didn’t live to see it, so it seems only right and proper for all of those who knew and loved him and a whole bunch of new Simon Goss fans to have a knees up in his local in his honour!!

So please join us for a most marvellous night of back to back local live music and DJ’s, including Simon’s House Band, the Wah Wah 45s Players, featuring his sons Tom and Joe. Everyone involved gives their time and talent for free, so every penny you pay for your ticket goes to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, for whom we have raised over £50K in Simon’s memory. We promise you will have a ball and you won’t even need to get a cab home!! (and don’t forget your flat cap!)

————————————————————————————-

Well hasn’t the year flown by! Less than half a year ago, we toasted our tender age of 2, and now we’re celebrating another milestone, the first of many LP’s on Soulvent with SV024, Pola & Bryson – This Time Last Year.

Label co-founder Jack ‘Pola’ Higgins and long-term friend and collaborator Harry Bryson officially joined forces back in early 2015. Off the strength of their acclaimed ‘The Music EP’ the pair set to work in carefully crafting their debut LP, and after countless hours of blood, sweat, mix downs and Dr Pepper: the duo are ready to unveil their masterpiece.

We’re incredibly excited to celebrate the release of this blockbuster piece of work with a line-up boasting some of the most exciting talent in Drum & Bass to date. Legendary Spearhead CEO, ‘BCee’ joins forces with label regular, ‘Villem’ to bring us ‘The Vanguard Project’, who put their amazing touches to the debut single from This Time Last Year, ‘Open My Eyes ft. MVE’. Next up we have Liquicity regular and recent collaborator on the album, ‘Loz Contreras’ bringing you the purest of summer vibes. Joining this already solid selection of artists are Soulvent regulars and favourites, ‘GLXY’ who have also been tearing the Drum & Bass scene up over the past 12 months. Our favourite multi-genre DJ, ‘Thought Trails’ will also be making his return to a Soulvent line-up to bring you the best in bass and beats.
