We are extremely excited about 2008: it is the year we will celebrate 10 years of the successful Brazilian club night Batmacumba, one of the longest running Brazilian clubs anywhere in the world. To mark the occasion we will be launching a double CD/DVD of music and short films from Brazil and embarking on a club tour of Europe.
So what better way to kick the year off than with a storming New Year's Eve party with great live music, wicked deejay selection and the usual carnival vibe. Live music comes from London's most authentic samba school, Paraiso School of Samba, vice-Champions at this year's Notting Hill Carnival. A dozen drummers and dancers will be counting down to midnight in true samba style.
Carnival chaos continues on the decks with Batmacumba resident DJ Cliffy who is joined by Spiritual South, responsible for remixing the likes of Bebel Gilberto, Azymuth & UFO. Completing the line-up are new Brazilian drum & bass duo Human Factor (made up of DJ Tisso & Atila) whose debut single featuring Tita Lima has been a firm favourite with the likes of DJ Patife and Fabio rocking dancefloors all over the world. Expect to hear Brazilian sounds covering samba to carimbo, funk carioca to drum & bass and lots more in-between.
The event will be taking place at Cafe Lazeez for the third year running. The venue has proved a huge success, located at the heart of Soho providing easy access and offering two funky rooms.
