Spoony bringing classic Garage to Barbican

NEW PROJECT: DJ Spoony

DJ SPOONY, one of the original and most respected pioneers of the UK Garage scene, has joined forces with the 36-piece Ignition Orchestra to bring a night of the biggest UK Garage hits like you’ve never heard them before to London’s Barbican Hall.

‘Garage Classical’ does exactly what it says on the tin. Spoony, the curator and presenter of the event, alongside composer and conductor Katie Chatburn, have put together 20 of the biggest and most iconic Garage anthems, stripped back and performed live with the original vocalists.

The night will be hosted by DJ Spoony, one of the founding fathers and instrumental players in a movement that defined a generation.

“There are literally thousands of garage tracks out there,” said the respected former BBC Radio 1 pre- senter, “but the most important thing for me was choosing those that would sound absolutely brilliant when performed by an orchestra.

“I also really wanted the original vocalists to stand up there on stage and perform alongside them.”

‘Garage Classical’ takes place at 7.30pm on July 21 at the Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London, EC2Y 8DS. For tickets, priced from £22.50, visit barbican.org.uk
