Portishead DJ for Funkydoo at Soda
Andy Smith

Portishead DJ Andy Smith is coming to Swindon to play at the first ever Funkydoo event at Soda.

Andy Smith of 90s Trip Hop act Portishead is playing at Soda in Swindon on Friday 14th May for a brand new regular clubbing event - Funkydoo.

Funkydoo is a new musical excursion that aims to bring some of the world's funkiest underground music to Swindon's nightlife. Hoping to avoid the commercial aspect of today's pop-influenced music scene, each Funkydoo event will aim to bring clubbers an eclectic mix of quality music and cool underground vibes.

Funkydoo events will appear in club venues across Swindon including The Apartment, Soda, Brunel Rooms and Longs Bar. Clubbers are encouraged to book a Funkydoo event for parties, promotional launches or any other occasion. For more information, visit the Funkydoo website.

Andy Smith will be playing a diverse set of Hip Hop, Funk and Northern Soul at Soda on 14th May. As part of Portishead, Andy supplied the samples for the hip hop and movie soundtrack-type sounds the band became famous for.

In between Portishead tours, he has DJed constantly around the UK, Europe and the States, achieving international acclaim for his ability to whip up a party and his pretension-free demeanour.

He promoted the release of his mix CD 'The Document' on Go! Beat in 1998, and is set to release another imminently.

Forthcoming are tours of Australia, a visit to the far east, as well as hot shows in Germany, a new residency in London, and plenty of others around the UK.

Recently, together with Bristolian Scott Hendy, he has been making his own tracks under the name of Dynamo Productions; a track of which has already been featured on Deadly Avenger's 'Battlecreek' compilation LP earlier this year, and on the Mojo Club compilation in Germany.

Andy Smith appears at Funkydoo at Soda nightclub in Swindon on Friday 14th May. DJ's Smalley and D'Roc are also manning the decks with some sublime deep house. Entry is free before 9.30pm, £5.00 after.
