Friday June 15th - Mu and Vee If Mu and Vee were 8 years old, their mums would separate them, but Mum¹s not at The Matterhorn on Friday nightsŠ Give it up for a kaleidoscopic blend of hip hop, future funk, soul and other fat back beats baked to perfection by Roots Foundation founding member, Fat Freddys front-man and Fonky Monk Mu with his sidekick, monkey about town scratchmeister Vee.

Saturday 16th - Zen & Koa Zen is living the DJs dream; by day he vends crisp tunes from Chelsea Records in Manners Mall bringing the best of it to the Matterhorn and the world on Saturday nights. You can check him out on The Jewel School radio show on Radio Active 89FM from 7-9 every Saturday and down at The Horn from 10pm playing that new West London styles sound, afro Cuban rhythms, salsa, jazz breaks, house beats and more butt wiggling styles than you can wiggle a butt at! This Week: Roots Foundation key player Koa joins Zen for the next two Saturdays and with a fresh swag of vinyl I'm hard pressed to describe what he'll be playing, all I can say is Koa is the king of mixing it up, with one ear on the blackest roots sounds and the other at the front of the new musical spectrum what ever he drops, I know that you'll be lovin' it!
