London Unhinged Festival: Quixote + Ysan Roche + Christian Laing + Ghostpoet + Shlomo + Ben Ottewell + Lazarus And The Plane Crash
Travelling cult event Unhinged Festival comes to London on Friday 23rd November at the legendary 'Electric Brixton' club. Unhinged is a multi-disciplinary festival comprising arts, music, film, fashion, and performance art.
Yellow – a neo-Giallo short film in which a reclusive man is on the hunt for a vicious serial killer in neon-lit Berlin will be screened. Ryan Haysom’s cult horror flick has previously been shown at FilmFour’s Frightfest and Screamfest LA and received rave reviews.
A live painting session by renowned street artist Blam will see a piece of his artwork created live at Unhinged, and projected across the venue for all to see.
There will be over 70 pieces of home-grown art on display at Unhinged, ranging from installations, canvases, photography and sculptures which will be suspended from the main ceiling over the dance floor.
Surely, there hasn’t been such an overt fusion of clubbing and art since Andy Warhol frequented Studio 54.
Ghostpoet will be DJing only.

Christian Laing tour dates
Ghostpoet (aka Obaro Ejimiwe) is a softly-spoken rapper with a gentle presence, muddling through the treacle of modern life. In 2011 his debut album was amongst the nominees for the prestigious Mercury Prize award.
Although his music may fall under the rap banner, his third album, 2015's 'Shedding Skin', features guest contributions from Nadine Shah, Lucy Rose and Maximo Park’s Paul Smith. Unlike his previous albums, ‘Shedding Skin’ was recorded with a traditional live set up with what has become his touring band; Joe Newman on guitar, bass player, John Calvert and John Blease on drums.

Shlomo's show is a dazzling mix of storytelling and high energy, genre-hopping, voice-box mashing from the World Loopstation Champion and internationally acclaimed human beatboxer.
A Guinness World Record holder, Shlomo gave up astrophysics to perform his amazing vocal pyrotechnics. He has consistently pushed the boundaries of beatboxing, bringing the art form to new and unexpected audiences. Shlomo is also a jazz drummer and classically-trained percussionist.
'The kid's good. Jaw-droppingly good' (The Guardian)
'He's like a one-man Hollywood action film soundtrack' (The Times)
'Slick theatrics and soulful vocal gymnastics' (Evening Standard).
Shlomo tour dates
As a singer and lead guitarist in rock band Gomez, Ben Ottewell is well known for his unmistakable voice and talent for blistering and inspired guitar solos. Rolling Stone declared, "Gomez's not-so-secret weapon is Ben Ottewell". And as GQ Magazine once wrote and anyone listening can attest, "[his] voice is not of this world."
Ottewell released his first solo album Shapes & Shadows (ATO) in 2011, Since then, Ottewell has been pleasing audiences with a series of successful solo tours across the UK, US and Australia.
