BURST launch party at KOKO
We are thrilled to announce the arrival of BURST, KOKO’s brand new weekly Friday club night which will be launching on Friday 4th November.
Performing at the launch, and making his UK debut, will be Toronto-based RnB star ALLAN RAYMAN, who will be joined on the bill by COURAGE, one of the UK's hottest new producers and DJs. Spanning Hip-Hop, House, Future Beats, and all genres in between, BURST will host the latest crop of emerging live acts and DJ’s from the UK and around the world.
Taking Fridays at KOKO in a whole new direction from the previous NME nights, BURST will combine international acts making their UK debut performances (Allan Rayman, Noah Slee and PHAM) alongside established names, plus UK emerging talent. BURST is all about bringing music lovers and party goers together under one roof every Friday night.
Performing at the BURST launch party are two of music’s most hotly tipped artists. Making his UK debut with a live performance, mixing sultry RnB, with a blend of Hip-Hop and Americana production, Rayman is creating a storm across the pond with his devastating vocal, witnessed most recently on his 2015 debut album Hotel Allan.
And christening the BURST guest DJ slot on Friday 4th November will be UK producer Courage. The young DJ produced the track ‘My Hood’ for Ray Blk and Stormzy, before Ray Blk returned the favour featuring on Courage’s debut single ‘2am’, which was premiered by Annie Mac on Radio 1. Last week Courage dropped his New Kicks mix for DJ Mag too, listen here.
Opening on the night will be one of BURST's new resident DJs, Ralph Hardy. When he's not touring the world as Jay Prince's DJ or roaming the Radar Radio airwaves on his weekly show, Ralph will be cutting loose at BURST.
Also confirmed for the opening six weeks of BURST are 808INK, Daniel Ness, Elderbrook live, MAKOLA, More // Night, Noah Slee, NVOY, PHAM and WiDE AWAKE, with more bookings to be announced soon, full listing below….
And with exciting collaborations in the pipeline for early 2017, BURST is set to become a landmark Friday night.
