Information:

We're back for another night of music that will dance your socks off! We are bringing Samson Sounds, the heavyweights of Glasgow's soundsystem scene for your dancing pleasure.

Then top it off with the man who knows how to make you move, DJ Hi Tone will finish off the night in Hi style with his tropical tunes.

SAMSON SOUNDS
Leading the charge in Scotlands’ world dance music scene, Samson Sounds carry the energy towards a positive dance floor vibration. Originating from the homemade dubwise Samson
Soundsystem they are no strangers to bass weight and can deliver a good time guarantee at any party.

Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland and characterised by their uplifting stage presence they blend elements of African Highlife and Blues, Dub, UK Steppas, Kwaito and Jazz, leaving no-one
behind.

TOM SPIRALS
Real talk lyrics ,versatile flows and melodies for miles. Studying his craft on the mic alongside champion sound and fellow Glaswegians Mungo's Hi Fi, Tom Spirals is the resident MC at the infamous Walk n Skank session in Glasgow. His energetic performances have taken him right round the globe and back again, from UK to Australia, South America to Europe. Spirals is always on the road spreading the sound and regularly holding down the vibe for many respected sound systems such as Sinai & Legal Shot and producers like DreadSquad and Havanah meets Kingston.
A whole heap of high grade music has been busting out this year with releases on Boom Sound & Pure Niceness and recieving big support from the scene and big players like David Rodigan (BBCradio1xtra) .Big tings ahead for the original Chatterbox - Watch It.

CO-OPERATORS (DJ Set)
Stepping up into the Bristol scene is the new project of Eeyun Delroy Purkins, mixing music thats a tribute to the sounds of 60's, 70's and 80's Jamaica. Co-Operators and their cohorts betray their obvious love of old skool Dub and Reggae. Tonight features Joe Yorke on vocals brining the songs to life with real feeling and character.

DJ HI TONE
High Tone’s passion for music and dance gave him the idea to share it with people, bringing his eclectic selection of global beats to a dance floor to make people groove! DJ High Tone brings loco nu cumbia electronic beats, tropical rhythms from the West to the East of Africa and sticky latin sounds. A crazy concoction of glory music for people who love to dance.

THE CAUSE
Earlier this year we held another Ashanti Beats Fundraiser which raised £1100 for Blessed Mount Mary’s school in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. This money has been used for our project of building a new toilet and shower block to replace the unsanitary pit toilets. The toilets are now almost finished but we need to now fundraise the money to drill a borehole at the school which we will be able to source water from.

We are holding this event to fundraise for two key projects.

1. Drill a borehole to source clean water for the new toilet block and also to use for drinking and washing. Currently all water for cooking and drinking has to be brought in buckets every day from the nearby village.
2. Sponsorship programme - it costs £30 a year for a child to attend the school but many families struggle to pay this fee meaning their Childs education can suffer. We fundraise to pay the fees of these children.

All profits from this event are going directly to Blessed Mount Mary’s school and will directly benefit the children there through these key projects.

If you are unable to attend the event but would still like to show your support for the cause through a donation or sponsoring one of the children for a years eduction (£30) then please follow the link below and donate!
