JunKroom Vol. 16 was a hell of a lot of fun. But undoubtedly the highlight of the night was the post dub three man band Miimo. Combining drums, bass, electronica and steel drums (yes! steel drums!) their sound is unique yet instantly likeable. “How could you not dance to this?” I asked myself and turned around to find my friends Gary Bloom and Bridget Scott had already answered that question by cutting a brand new rug of their own.
I was so impressed by what I saw and heard that I immediately bought TWO of their CDs. And I never buy anything…
Here is a small sampling of Miimo’s performance in three videos followed by details of JunKroom Vol. 17 which is coming up this Friday. Do take a look.
