Andrew Ashong brings his blend of fresh, soulful music back to Hideaway. Transmitting his sweet, deep grooves alongside his live band, this will be a truly memorable live two set performance from the acclaimed London-Ghanaian musician.

"It's soul music for people who have been dismayed by most of the major developments in soul music of the last two, even three, decades." The Guardian

“Ashong… chooses to retrospectively immerse in the ethics of true music.” Clash

Andrew Ashong, hailing from Forest Hill by way of Ghana has been titled as an essential listen by many music blogs in the past year. The Ghanaian-British artist had his first solo release on Theo Parrish’s label, Sound Signature. The title track, ‘Flowers’ won ‘Track of the Year’ at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards 2013.

When asked, what is behind the excitement of this record, Parrish replied “The funk. Right under my nose were all the essential elements: simplicity, drive, and honesty gained from heartfelt experience in Andrew Ashong’s music. It’s more than just that. It’s human.”
