Friends of Urambo: Good Block at The Ace Hotel in London, Shoreditch

Good Beats

Heading to The Ace Hotel basement in Shoreditch on the 13th June are Good Block who have put together a great one-off event in aid of an even better cause. With 100% of all money raised heading straight to the Friends of Urambo and the Mwanhala Charity, there’s every reason to attend. The grandparents of Tom and Pete – who are both Good Block residents – once chaired the projects that led to higher quality irrigation, farming, education and healthcare in Tanzania. Tom himself will be visiting Tanzania in August to teach carpentry in special workshops whilst taking his own tools and funding the entire escapade himself. We’ve established that the ethos is all in favour of a brilliant charity but what about the night itself?

The lineup includes a bit of everything so expect house, afro-beats, splashes of acid, flickers of techno and bucket-loads of carnival-esque mayhem thrown into an intimate basement where almost anything goes. Esa & Mervin Granger, Nick Williams of Phonica Records b2b with Bradley Zero, Glowing Palms and of course, the Good Block DJs are all in full-force. On top of the stellar lineup, Good Block are also having a good-old raffle with prizes courtesy of Rat Records so expect some top-drawer, quality wax to be on offer! The event is ticketless but please search deep between the sofa cracks, at the bottom of your handbags and even the floor on your way to the event for anything in excess of £5 – it’s definitely the cheapest, most worthwhile and rewarding night you’ll attend this summer. Head over to the EVENT PAGE for more details.

The guys over at Good Block have put together this little fiery promo mix to get you up to grips with what to expect on the 13th:
