Moonboots and Jason Boardman (Aficionado)
Jolyon Green (Lowlife)
Simon Tonkinson (Be My Guest)
This year Aficionado celebrates its 15th years of existence with a number of events planned across Europe to celebrate this milestone; the 1st is a live performance by Land of Light on Friday 22nd March in the Soup Kitchen basement.
Land Of Light are the London-based duo Jonny Nash and Kyle Martin. Separately, Nash has earned praise from the likes of David Mancuso and François K for his Sombrero Galaxy project, and Kyle plays synth for ex-Ozric Tentacles/Planet Gong-fronted space rock band Dream Machine. Together, the pair make atmospheric, new worlds of sound which float just out of reach in Vangelis-tinged smoothness. Their self-titled debut album - released in November 2012 via ESP Institute has received critical acclaim worldwide.
