The man from U.N.K.L.E, James Lavelle, has just been added to our night at KOKO 16th August!
Lavelle has had floods of success. He shaped the Trip Hop genre with his Mo’ wax label and performed a five year residency at Fabric, as well as DJ’ing in other major clubs like Zouk and Womb. He has collaborated with the biggest names of music and fashion, from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Richard Ashcroft of The Verve to fashion icon Lee Alexander McQueen. “Daydreaming with…. James Lavelle” was launched at London’s Museum Of Mankind and has produced collaborations with celebrated artists like Jonathan Glazer, 3D, Jonas Burget, Doug Foster and Turner Prize nominee Nathan Coley.
James Lavelle recently had the honour of curating the 21st Meltdown at the Southbank centre. Lavelle’s own label, Mo’Wax, also turned 21 this year and to celebrate he included an interactive exhibition, Mo’Wax 21: Urban Archaeology, showcasing the creative output of the label. James Lavelle’s Meltdown was nominated for “Best Independent Festival” by the Association of Independent Music.
