Hackney Globe Trotter aka Russ Jones

The legendary king of Global beats in London - the Hackney Globe
Trotter Russ Jones (also of Future World Funk) has been hosting
parties with Womad in Australia and NZ, Glastonbury, Love Box and the
Club Dada closing party at this year's Bestival.


Spearheaded by DJ Cal Jader and MC Clem George Movimientos' mix of
block rockin' Latin underground beats and conscious Latin culture have
set fire to venues across the UK this year and set out their stall for
a residency at the Rich Mix in 2010.

The Bees Knees

The mighty Bee's Knees host the swing palour. As DJs, dancers and all
round performers they will provide a great alternative to the Latin
frenzy. It's no wonder these two girls, Alia and Jojo are seriously in
demand. From the Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Festival, The Electric
Picnic and Lovebox to Mike Leigh films and BBC appearances they are
certainly helping to make London swing. Always looking fabulous and
with a healthy entourage of classy dancers in tow, they are sure to
have the place jumping

The hand picked live bands are perfect NYE entertaiment:-

Eri Okan

A full on North-Eastern Brazilian Bloco experience, where Samba and
Maracatu is merged with Reggae and heavy Afro-rhythms. With big drums
and carnival costumes, it's an intense fiesta party vibe.

Los Chinches

Their roots are in Peruvian Cumbia, an infectious mix of traditional
Columbian rhythms, Andean and Amazonic melodies with a helping of 60's
psych rock courtesy of electric guitars and organs. Performing their
own interpretation of a groove that rocked the Amazon in the 1960's,
throwing in a few classics they are sure to rock the wild east for 2010.

So for NYE when you fancy reaching out for some Psych Peruvian, Samba,
Tropical, Latin, Afro, Cumbiaaaaa and Ghettotastic, swing beats
(what's the alternative) you know where to head, no need for a plane,
boat or long excursion but east  (London) and a short bus ride,
bicycle or even by foot.......
