Went to see The Correspondents last night at new venue The Book Club in Shoreditch (this could become my new official hangout for 2010) – if you haven’t checked them out yet then you’re missing a trick. Duo Mr. Bruce (Singer/MC) and Mr. Chuckles (DJ/Producer) are a tasty team of lyrical delight fusing hip hop and swing to create a genre called ‘swing hop’. (Although another term I’ve also heard is ‘electro swing’.) But who cares about labels! The duo can get any room pumping – and having seen Mr Bruce take to the stage in a huge tent at Bestival he proves that no place is too small…no venue too big for Mr Bruce’s dancing feet.
Get them on your ‘must see’ list this year!!
