The JPC Funk & Soul Shack presents:


+ Chrome (support)

The duo of DJ Moneyshot and Rackabeat have been delighting dance floors and lighting up radio airwaves since forming The Allergies and releasing their debut album in 2016.

Their brand of feel-good funk and hyped-up hip-hop has seen them clock up A List status and numerous ‘Album of The Day’ gongs at BBC 6 Music, and soundtrack a whole host of international ad campaigns.

Year in, year out they’ve sharpened their skills in the studio, dropping one dynamite LP after another. And, they’re about to cut the ribbon on their sixth – Tear The Place Up.

Full to the brim with party-starting heat, the record showcases their never-ending knack for turning out soul sampling bangers, and deep infectious grooves.

Due to popular demand, they’ll be assembling their crack team of musical collaborators once more, and hitting the road with a high-octane live show to bring their music to life.

Joining them on stage, as always, is LA rap legend, Andy Cooper. The mighty pipes of soul sensation, Marietta Smith. And the blazing horns of sax supremo, James Morton.

Together, they’ve earned a rep for their dynamite crowd-rocking. And, with this new material in the bag, it looks like they’ll be raising the roof even higher this year.


“Totally exhilarating hip-hop funk”- Rolling Stone

“My pick for album of the year. This is truly funk and soul for the 21st century!” – Craig Charles, BBC 6 Music
