Wormfood All-star Summer Finale! United Vibrations / The Brother Moves On / Poirier (CA) / MC Xander / Worm Disco Club / Sounddhism DJs
We’re back at our favourite club-shaped festival of fun for quite possibly our biggest line-up of the summer to round off the sweaty season in style. This has been an important summer for Passing Clouds, celebrating 10 years as the most brilliant party venue in town and resisting threats from developers to turn this staple of the London’s music scene into an office block… The strength of support they’ve been recieving shows just how much love there is out there – the people love Passing Clouds and Passing Clouds loves you back!

Born in Londinium some time during the late 20th century, United Vibrations are messengers from Inner Space. They travel the globe seeking those who are ready to rediscover the Golden Ratio. Creating music with a message and for the community, they strive to transcend traditional boundaries with pervasive positive vibrations, bringing their unique style of 12Tone, Mulatto, Afro-Punk and Jazz-fusion music, influenced by Fela Kuti and Sun Ra, to a global audience.
The Brother Moves On (TBMO) got tired of of the idea of being a band and embraced a multi-aestetic multi-disciplinary concept of a collective happening to new spaces and places. “Re-challenging hip hop’s five pillars(MCing, DJaying, B-boying, graffiti writing and knowledge of self) into a conceptechnic performance art project that incorporates historical, political and sociological perspectives” the collective hopes to remind and be reminded of the worth of its art. The Brother Moves On began as a self-proclaimed art movement mainly of graphic and fine artists and since began incorporating instrumentalists for the live performance environment.
Global music specialist Poirier was born and raised in Montreal, Canada. Releasing music for Nice Up! Records, Mixpak, Man Recordings, Ninja Tune, he has recorded eight albums as Poirier and two as Boundary. The DJ/producer is well-versed into reggae/dancehall, afropop, soca and electronic music to just name a few genres of his large palette. His new album “Migration” is released by UK label Nice Up! Records in March 2016 and features collaboration with Red Fox, Machinedrum and Face-T to just name a few.
Using nothing more than his voice, a mic, an fx box and a loop-pedal, London’s MC Xander creates intricate, multi-layered music that never fails to amaze. Beautiful choir-esque melodies mix with fat beatbox, growling dubby sub-bass and Xander’s conscious brand of lyricism. The sound he makes is so sonically rich and danceable, it is easy to forget it is all from the mouth.
Pushing the finest in global soul, funk, hip-hop and beyond since 2010, these Nottingham-hailing have hosted some of the finest acts on the planet at their own live nights and know a thing or two about spinning records… Always a good time guaranteed.
Coincidentally-named Bristol collective of musicians, DJs and self-decribed “mumbling weirdos and top cats”, they will be taking over the top floor for the evening. With a reputation for throwing parties in places that offer something welcoming but loose, characterful and bringing it correct whilst bringing good vibes & quality music from all corners of the globe.
@ Passing Clouds, Dalston.
