Josh Caffe presents.... Death of Aquarius
Wed 26 April 2017, 19:00 – 23:00 BST
DJ/Vocalist and songwriter Josh caffe presents his debut solo show, Death of Aquarius. A journey through his musical collaborations and also a preview from his forthcoming album, Black Magik Dawn.
Astrologically we are living in the Age of Aquarius, and through the eyes of Josh Caffe this age comes to an end on his album with his interpretation of ‘the birth of a new spirit or form’. A dark, abstract yet positive form that embodies veracity, fears, sexual desires, ability to love and rebellion.
Taking the audience on a journey with an original soundtrack that pays homage to 80’s underground Chicago and Detroit house and techno, Death of Aquarius showcases Josh Caffe’s collaborations with multiple acclaimed producers.
A new spirit is born.
