Inspired by Claudette Johnson’s love of jazz, DJ Octavia Freud curates these free, live jazz sessions featuring 60’s east coast jazz, classic female vocalists and Afro-beat.
For our first Summer Session we welcome Tiger Mendoza, one of the most prolific musicians and producers on the local Oxford scene over the last decade, and Catgod, a local five piece centred around brother-sister duo Robin and Cat.
Tiger Mendoza is a musician, producer and DJ who is known for his remix and electronic production skills, mask-wearing live shows and an open minded approach to collaborating. For his latest album New Ideas, he has taken tracks from his Old Ideas EPs and had them remixed by an assortment of local musicians. All profits from the new album will go to The Oxford Foodbank.
For this Modern Art Oxford Yard session, Tiger Mendoza will be performing as a special guest DJ, mixing up beats, styles and genres to form a soundtrack that compliments our current exhibition Claudette Johnson: I Came to Dance.
Catgod create ‘effortlessly charming, folk-inspired songs’. Their newest effort ‘Heartbeat in my Hand’ was recently premiered by The Line of Best Fit, who described it as ‘a joyously breathtaking listen, pinned down by soft piano melodies and delicate harmonies’.
