Empathy Christmas Special

— The Doghouse

time:21:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Empathy is back! We return to our spiritual home Bar Latino now called the Doghouse in central Bristol for one hell of a Christmas knees up and a very special guest, we welcome Bushwacka!

Bushwacka! In many guises he has been around since 1988 and is still loving the life he lives and doing what he does best - making killer music and rocking the dance floors globally.

Formerly known as Matthew B during the acid house explosion of the 80s in the UK, he was then one half of seminal tech house duo Layo & Bushwacka! and now his latest project is another new musical direction again as Just Be. But Matthew's roots are in the raw underground warehouse and illegals parties that shook this country to the core. Nowadays his sound is a fine fusion of breaks, techno, house, ambient and downtempo and has held up to four residences, most famously at The End in London where he was a key player for 14 years.

Over the years he has headlined leading clubs around the world from Cocoon and DC10 and Space in Ibiza to Burning Man where he played a sunrise set at Robot Heart killer releases on top labels like Leftroom, Desolate, Kaoz Theory, Suara, Saved, Bedrock, Get Physical and Seth Troxler’s “Play It , Say It” imprint, Bushwacka! is right at the top, just where he belongs, with new music and remixes coming all the time.

After a crazy summer playing over 30 gigs in Ibiza in 2018 , as weekly resident at Sankeys for Dance 88/89, monthly Fridays at Pikes with his own Planet Of The Breaks parties, and now touring Asia, Australia and South America over the winter , as well as embarking on a new album, and finally relaunching his labels Plank Records and Oblong Records , bringing back the Bushwacka! sound in full effect.

We also welcome back after 6 years - resident and superstar producer Jim Rivers to where it all started for him, he’s been busy as Copy Paste Soul but is back playing a classics closing set.

Setting things up are Empathy main man Stuart Wilkinson and resident Simon Lloyd.
