For the time being Daylight Music and its spiritual home of Islington’s Union Chapel can only exist in our collective experiences.
But what memories we have! Maybe you remember the bite of the crisp morning air, as you queue outside talking or nodding to friendly and familiar faces? Or maybe you recall entering the chapel and the earthy smell of the pews? The temptations of the merch desk? Sitting down taking in the vastness of the space and how music slowing seems to vibrate around and through you? Or just the comforting feeling of wrapping your hands around a warm mug of hot choc and letting the week’s worries drift away!
We cannot for the moment welcome you into our safe, family-friendly space, but we’d like you to re-imagine our musical club from the comfort of your own home starting this week with our new virtual Daylight Saving series.Join Daylight Music producer and introducer Ben Eshmade on a special curated journey each week into our archive with video new and old each Saturday, from midday to 2pm. We’d ask you to provide your own music, tea & cake for this journey and to contribute your thoughts, opinions and memories on twitter or Instagram via @daylight_music and #daylightmusic.
Music… Saturday 16 May at midday, sit back and press play (not before!)
Midday / Hour 1 new videos - Gabríel Ólafs, Késia Decoté & Angus Bayley.
1pm / Hour 2 new videos - We Like We & Rauelsson.
…Tea & Cake?
Please provide from the provisions of your own cupboard, but if you’d like to go on an adventure then our friend at Chewn Zine has provided a recipe for Sweet Potato Cake this week.
Obviously we survive from the generosity of the on-door monies. So if you feel inclined and get something from this experience do consider buying producer Ben Eshmade a tea for the work involved in bringing you Daylight Savings and of course the series itself, which we continue to plan and re-plan and which will return as soon as we are able.

A big thank you to Foliage Films, Huske Media and the whole video team new and old for capturing these moments.
