Lavelle’s genre-defying portfolio spans music, art, fashion, design and film, and with his musical outfit UNKLE he has collaborated with some of the most important recording artists in the world, including Thom Yorke, Richard Ashcroft, Massive Attack and Queens of the Stone Age.
DJ Milo joins Lavelle on the night to take it back to where it all began. As a founding member of Bristol’s legendary Wild Bunch sound system alongside Grantley Marshall (Massive Attack’s Daddy G) and producer Nellee Hooper, Milo helped define the ‘Bristol Sound’ and shape the blueprints of trip-hop. His fabled cut-and-paste track ‘Return of the Original Art-Form’ with Hiroshi Fujiwara and Japan’s Major Force crew was a key influence on Lavelle and his label Mo'Wax. Milo has worked under a number of aliases, most notably ‘Nature Boy’ and ‘DJ Nature’, under which he recorded a highly acclaimed Boiler Room set.
To bring the story full circle, Lavelle has also enlisted one of London’s most exciting young DJs, Shy One, to play. Seeing her father, ‘Madhatter’ Trevor Nelson, DJing with Soul II Soul was a seminal moment for Lavelle. Shy One started her career on pirate radio stations at just 13 years old and has quickly made a name for herself with her eclectic sets.
