Not Strictly Jazz with DJ Lascelle Lascelles (Vibration Black Finger/Woven Entity/NTS)
One of the house DJs at London’s hipper-than-hip Wag Club in the 1980s (and ocassional A Certain Ratio’s tour DJ), Lascelle Lascelles went on to be one of the founder members of Acid Jazz pioneers The Brand New Heavies, staying with the band for five years. His next project Heliocentric World scored a chart hit for Gilles Peterson’s Talkin’ Loud; then he turned up behind the drum kit for indie darlings (and NME cover stars) Campag Velocet. He’s gone on to appear or record with the likes of Mr Scruff, Beth Orton, Gossip, Trevor Jackson, Peaches and others. More recently he’s been working with Le Volume Courbe and touring with James Holden, as well as forming astrojazz improv collective Woven Entity with fellow percussionist Patrick Dawes. He currently co-hosts a weekly show on NTS Radio, Music to Ease Your Disease. His latest project, Vibration Black Finger, was inspired by his love for 70s spiritual jazz and received critical acclaim from DJs and music lovers alike.
For Not Strictly Jazz, Lascelle Lascelles brings a bag full of 70&80s Funk, Latin, reggae and punk funk.
