NO FAKIN (DJ SET)
Summer Jam, Sunday 23rd July, 14.40 – 15.20, ItsLiverpool Stage, Sefton Park, Liverpool, FREE
Born out of the Liverpool Hip-Hop Club Night of the same name, No Fakin’ DJ’s are brothers Ciaran and Paddy Quinn individually known as Kwinzola and DJ Illson. Their unique DJ sets, deep rooted in Hip-Hop, seamlessly blend and layer jazz, funk, soul, disco and reggae taking the roots of the culture straight to the dance floor.
A handful of remixes, independent releases, residencies and their acclaimed sample based opus ‘Give and Example’ on Fat City Records paved the way for No Fakin’ DJs to take their genre defying DJ show outside their own club nights. They have gone on to rock dance floors, boats, tents and tipis across Europe at festivals and clubs like Lovebox, Secret Garden Party, Fabric, Chibuku, the Garden Festival and Soundwave.
As self proclaimed fans first and foremost, they have had the honour of playing with many of their heroes and inspirations, holding their own alongside Rakim, Public Enemy, George Clinton, DJ Shadow, Mr Scruff and DJ Premier to name just a few. Now in its 20th year the DJ collective are celebrating throughout 2017 performing at festivals and clubs around Europe.
