Purple Reign - A Tribute to Prince

Event sold out.

"A strong spirit transcends rules.” Prince

It’s been nearly two years since Prince’s passing, and fresh marks of his influence over global popular culture continue to emerge. Whether as genre-trangressing musician, figurehead for radical subcultures or global sex symbol, Prince remains both universal and personal.

On May 4th, we present Purple Reign, a homage to his legacy channelling The Purple One’s irrepressible life-force into a night of immersive art, music and culture. Oval Space transforms into a purple emporium of Prince trademarks and motifs, soundtracked by both a bespoke 11-piece live-band and DJ sets from The Reflex and Good Life DJ’s.

THE LINEUP

Nandi’s Minneapolis Princes An 11-piece live band of supremely talented musicians and Prince fanatics, hand-picked by singer and band leader Chantelle Nandi. The classics, served with unexpected twists, jaw-dropping production flourishes and a whole lot of attitude.

The Reflex The man with the golden touch, London-based French native Nicholas Laugier has fast established himself as disco’s most talented remixer. Winning plaudits across the spectrum, he the likes of Noel Gallagher, Nile Rogers, Jazzy Jeff and Nightmares On Wax as fans. Having never released any Prince edits, he comes to Purple Reign to flip the script and pay his respects, blending Prince inspired material with some classic Reflex Revisions.

Good Life DJ’s The Good Life crew have been curating parties around the UK for 5 years now, from day and night carnivals, to disco dodgeball sessions and most recently David Attenborough Jungle Boogie parties here at Oval Space. Self-proffesed Prince fanatics, we couldn’t think of a crew more appropriate to warm proceedings up with a special eulogy to Prince. They’ll also be on deck to help us dress Oval Space into a Purple fantasia - except seriously fruity production.
