In a fiery, spirit-filled musical hootenanny, you can always spot Soul Clap at the centre of the party. With their roaring sense of humour and wild-child spirit, the Boston duo and Wolf + Lamb homeboys are the perfect addition to our 12th birthday lineup. Saddling up next to Hot Natured's Lee Foss and Derren Smart this Saturday in Room Three, together the boys will be rocking the floor, starting the night as they mean to go on – totally untamed. As part of the birthday countdown, we wasted no time in talking to Soul Clap about what the celebrations mean to them, fancy dress preperaton, fabric mixes and their favourite birthday present. Read on to find out more and whilst we’ve got you, dont you dare forget to dig out your dancing shoes and dust them off for this Friday when we'll have a super fresh Soul Clap mix just for you.
"First of all it's a huge honour to be part of the birthday celebration. fabric is an institution and we're enthralled by each year of existence and each time we get to rock the disco. Boi-oi-oi-OING!"
"Wait, is it fancy dress party?"
"Now we're nervous..."
What are you looking forward to the most about it?
"We're looking forward to checking out the punters puking on themselves in the bathroom. Also, DJ Three & Droog are our American homies yo and Craig Richards is always is a treat."
Got any tips for those attending?
"When trying to survive a thirty hour dance marathon we always remember WTF. Water, training (start slow with a 1 hour dance marathon and work your way up) & food you dumbo!"
