NT's 2

We’re back at NT’s on Saturday 16th April in London Fields Hackney for an evening of music deemed right and proper.

After a brilliant start in March, where Crofty & Foz got to sample the excellent cocktail menu at NT’s, they’ll be bringing the goods again to the lovely little Funktion One system.

Join us after Record Store day from 8pm-1am for all vinyl selections throughout.

Possible sounds played exclusively on vinyl include: Jazz, Funk, Brazilian, Disco & House.

Listen to some tracks selected by Crofty & Foz on the facebook event here.
