Tuxedo ft. Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One

22 May / 19:30 / More InfoOn sale from: 27th March 2015 at 09:00

Tuxedo is Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus) – they are descendants of the one-word moniker family of funk, where you will find groups such as Chic, Shalamar, Plush & Zapp. They treat us to a disco funk DJ set this bank holiday weekend.

Their collaboration as Tuxedo began with an exchange of mixtapes back in 2006. The fruits of a long-standing kinship were three tracks that mysteriously showed up on internet doorsteps nearly two years ago. In between personal projects, these three tracks became a full album’s worth of Tuxedo, which is out now on Stones Throw Records.
