An East London Excursion with Eric Lau & DJ Gilla

excursionsoct13

Excursions returns to Miranda in East London for another night of heads down dancery. Selectors Eric Lau and Gilla will be going back-to-back with a selection swimming through Hip Hop, Soul, Jazz, Beats and Bruk business from across the globe. If you've passed through one of these events before, you'll know it's an untouchable vibe. If not, it's time to get to know!

ERIC LAU
Additionally to his First Word album 'Examples' in early 2017 and our Record Store Day trilogy (with Mr Thing, Tall Black Guy and Kidkanevil), Eric has worked with a host of artists, such as Oddisee, Yussef Kamaal, Guilty Simpson and Fatima, to name a few, whilst his DJ skills have seen him tour the globe with luminaries such as DJ Jazzy Jeff & Will Smith, Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper and Questlove. As a musician and producer, it's easy to understand why he's so revered across the world, by people like Rich Medina, 9th Wonder, Bobbito, Dam Funk, Gilles Peterson, James Poyser (The Roots), Phonte and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest), as well as being an integral player in Jeff Townes 'The PLAYlist' project.

DJ GILLA (FIRST WORD / EXCURSIONS)
The founder / A&R of First Word Records; releasing music by the likes of Children of Zeus, Tall Black Guy, Kaidi Tatham, Darkhouse Family, Myele Manzanza, Ross McHenry, Souleance and tons more. Gilla is a forthright selector in his own right. As well as his 'Excursions' nights, he hosts a monthly show of the same name on Balamii Radio, playing Hip Hop, Soul, Beats, Jazz, Broken and beyond, and features regularly as a presenter on Worlwide FM. Prior to establishing First Word, he was the daddy of seminal club-nights such as New Bohemia and Funky Mule in Leeds. Also a long-time resident at Soundwave & Dimensions Festival in Croatia, Gilla's eclectic sets never disappoint.
