Andy Smith (Portishead) @ APT

Saturday, October 20

Andy Smith (Portishead) with Bumpshop resident David Griffiths and the imitable $mall ¢hange
10p / $10 / (deep funk, 50s and 60s soul, rock ‘n' roll, and hip hop on 45s)

It's been quite a while since Andy Smith laid down the cuts and breaks for the legendary trip hop group Portishead, but he's not taken a single moment to rest since then. In 1998 Smith released the first installment of The Document , a mix CD series reflects his well honed DJ style of playing good music whatever the genre from his mixed bag of vinyl treasures. The series has proved so popular that Trojan Records asked Andy to breathe new life into their back catalogue by releasing a reggae spin off called The Trojan Document in 2006. He also released a compilation called Lets Boogaloo Volume 4 on Record Kicks earlier this year. Tonight he's dropping a 45 set as an ode to APT's long-running 45-only party, Bumpshop. David Griffiths, one of Bumpshop's esteemed diggers opens up, and $mall ¢hange, a man who knows a thing or two about seven inches himself closes out the night.
