Curtain Call: GAIKA Presents Club 88

GAIKA brings his blend of grime, dancehall, garage, hip hop and R&B

Internationally renowned artist, architect and designer, Ron Arad, brings his incredible 360˚ installation Curtain Call back to the Roundhouse as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations. The epic floor-to-ceiling artwork made of 5,600 silicon rods suspended from an 18 metre diameter ring provides a canvas for films, live performance and audience interaction. Arad is reinventing the curtain experience for 2016. Alongside the installation the Roundhouse will present a series of Curtain Call Live performances – immersive live music gigs. This time around, it's GAIKA, who brings his blend of grime, dancehall, garage, hip-hop and R&B to the Roundhouse. GAIKA is a visual artist, vocalist and producer from London, who makes dancehall-tinged songs for the city. His music harks back to his Jamaican and Grenadian heritage, filtered through his birthplace Brixton. GAIKA released Machine in November 2015 and Security in May 2016, both to resounding critical acclaim. He is being championed as the new voice of black British music, through his articulate commentary on social and political issues, combining this with his futuristic electronic sound. Over 18s only. Valid ID required. Latecomers will only be admitted at the discretion of the house.
