Fantastic Man & Charles Drakeford come to the Pool Hall this friday!

fantasticmanSince the stellar session with Cosmic Slop, in order to keep up the momentum we have Fantastic Man and Charles Drakeford joining us for the next dance.

Fantastic Man, aka Mic Newman, has been blowing our socks off for a while now (through his early output on London’s Wolf Music and VA appearances). But his position in the dance music community has been cemented with a string of excellent EPs on both his own label Fine Choice Records and Let’s Play House. All this while based in Melbourne, yet having found his audience through plays from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Move D and Francis Inferno Orchestra (with whom he collaborates). His keen ear for rhythm and tribal groove guides his production work and shows in his musical selections.

Whilst BZ is on his Asian tour, who bettter to fill his boots than Boiler Room brethren and a third of Principals, Charles Drakeford. Charles is not only a host and programmer for Boiler Room but also is turning heads and blowing up speaker systems with the output from his ‘From The Depths’ Record Label. Born from his long running NTS show From The Depths, Charles has released music by Lutto Lento and Niagara.
