JAMES LAVELLE, the man behind UNKLE, will be DJing upstairs at Kelly’s, Bridge Street, tomorrow from 10pm.
Lavelle’s music career started at 15 when he ran block parties in Oxford. At 18 he started the Mo’ Wax label which brought him into contact with DJ Shadow.
In 1996 Lavelle and Shadow began working under the UNKLE moniker. Their 1998 debut Psyence Fiction featured collaborations with Richard Ashcroft, Mike D, Badly Drawn Boy, and Thom Yorke.
The 2003 follow up Never, Never, Land saw Shadow replaced by Richard File and saw guest appearances from Josh Homme and Massive Attack’s 3D.
In May Lavelle released the fifth UNKLE album Where Did the Night Fall, which featured collaborators such as Gavin Clark and singer-songwriter Mark Lanegan.
Tickets are €15.
