Fab night, 'up for it' crowd - aren't they always at 'Soul in the Basement' and great tunes encompassing a broad mix under the 'mod' genre, ska/reggae, 6ts RnB, Latin, Popcorn and some brilliant 'Northern' to compliment. 

Stand out sets from Deka,  Sean Courtney, Gordie Pearson and host Brian Carndo. Lots of first time RnB & Popcorn for me from Sean - worth the trip alone hence Glasgow's  monthly 'nowt but northern' and their Rare Soul and 6ts RnB event in September at the O2 beckons. Gordie  played outstanding 6ts northern with a twist - well chosen for the discerning punters, Deka - choice cuts of ska & RnB with sweet 6ts and a tinge of mod/rockabilly from Brian.
Ray Sharpe 'Linda Lu' to a female version of 'let's talk it over', Ansell Collins 'bigger boss', Primaveras 'magic touch',  Rufus Lumley   'Minneap'lis Minnesota', Prince Buster 'train to girls town',
Bottom and Co 'gotta find a true love', Curtis Lee 'is she in your town', Eskew Reeder 'undivided love',  Louis Jordan 'old age' and Harold Jackson 'freedom riders'  typified the captivating variety - loved it and of course that iconic basement venue which despite its size/intimacy, has also hosted some great American Blues and Jazz acts in years gone by.  Recommended. Future 2016 dates, April 16, May 14, July 16, Sept  17, Oct 15, Dec 17.

Amazing venue - imagine a mini version of Ronnie Scott's mixed with 100 Club -  always a great crowd . Hotel & train sorted . So looking forward to this one and our return to this iconic basement club.

Thanks Brian .

Looks like it's gonna be quite a night (again) in the basement  at Barrels . Great to see that Nick Porter , Gordie Pearson and of course the one 'k' Deka will be also behind the decks .

Just to confuse,  understand the two 'k' Dekka will be making the trip later on the year - perhaps they need to double deck as 'the k twins' lol.

I absolutely loved playing here, having the freedom to play a lot of records, my own night restricts lol.

What a great venue and friendly atmosphere I'll definatly be returning as a punter.
