BDC represent a solid amalgamation of Brixtonian musicians taking inspiration from all the sound systems worldwide on a mission to induce a bogle epidemic. BDC blissfully incorporate nostalgic, if not peculiar, live vocal samples amid a landscape of original Dancehall and Dub. Did you ever think you could dutty wine to Nirvana or Dolly Parton? Well, get to know.

The card shuffling dancehall wizzkid will be dropping some big dance tunes all night in an all vinyl showcase.
BARON BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul)
More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.

The Albert is less than two minutes walk from Brixton station and a few minutes from the Brixton Academy.
Turn left out of the tube station, take the second left down Coldharbour Lane (by the KFC), go past the Prince of Wales and it's the next pub on your left.
