Tonight We Tanqueray – Newsroom, Edinburgh 18th September 2013


Project Description





A fun night through in Edinburgh’s ‘Newsroom.’ The brief was Soul, Disco and Hip Hop. This led me to a few weeks of researching and rediscovering tunes to play at this set. The night out was going to be based around Tanquerays new campaign featuring Aloe Blacc. The tunes had to match. With a few friends it was time to don the glad rags and take a trip back through a musical memory lane with lots of lovely Gin!

I really enjoyed this one!
