OOX. “Hug, Hug, Kiss” or “ookzs”.
Hamish Oliphant heads up a collective of vinyl DJs who go back to the roots of the underground dance music experience. Their parties in hometown Cambridge hark back to the sprung floors and amphetamine-driven all-nighters frequented by club goers in the 70s. Best described as “rare grooves” they draw influences from uptempo soul, jazz and funk. Varying syncopated and driven 4/4 rhythms paired with instrumental and vocal melodies, they shake off the cliched expectations associated with funk, soul and disco.
With the growing popularity of the event series in the South East, OOX packs its record bags and hits the road. This time, to our cosy studio in the heart of Liverpool.
