28th May – St Georges Bristol
4th June – Union Chapel, London

Fresh from her incredible performance on Jools Holland we’re incredibly proud to announce that we have two very special shows with PP Arnold in London & Bristol.

P.P Arnold is the rare type of performer who can make powerful soul vocals seem as effortless as the incredible career which she built with them.

Having started her career in California as a backing singer for Ike and Tina Turner, she eventually found herself in London where a tour with the Rolling Stones helped her strike up an unlikely friendship with Mick Jagger. It was he who convinced her to begin a solo career, signing to Immediate records, with which she recorded iconic tracks such as “The First Cut is the Deepest” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”. She also went on to record the album “The Turning Tide”, produced by Eric Clapton and Barry Gibb, although it wasn’t released until 2017. Since then, she has gone on to work on everything from west end shows, to lending her vocals across a whole host of genres, from acid house to britpop. Her role within British musical history is undeniable and today, she continues to record, with an energy as strong as ever.

It’s set to be an unmissable night of music for anyone with a heart for Britain’s rich musical history.

Too Many Zooz https://soundcrashmusic.com/too-many-zoozjzz/ Sat, 30 May 2020 11:53:50 +0000 https://soundcrashmusic.com/?p=45728
New York’s incredible brasshouse trio bring their restless groove machine back to the capital to bump, beat and blow your mind!
Their music is infectious, impossible to stay still listening to. As old-fashioned as their musical approach is, – if one were to call live instrumentation old fashioned – the structure of their songs follows very closely to any hit EDM track, hence their self-prescribed “brass house” genre. The drums provide a rhythmic base, the saxophone a bass line and the trumpet serves as the melody, guiding you to a gradually increasing, precipitous crescendo, where all the instruments come together only “drop” from a dizzying height, clashing together in an explosive climax of sound. Too Many Zooz will definitely force you to reconsider the way you think about jazz music.

Combining euphoria with introspection, Löffler has become known for a highly emotive sound that uses deep house as its stylistic framework. Influenced by light, wide-open spaces, nature and an exploration of the concept of getting lost; he blends wistful melodies, drum machines, and found sound into a wandering, melancholic mélange. The result is slow-burn, warm minimal techno – an audio/visual experience to lose yourself in.

Squarepusher https://soundcrashmusic.com/squarepusher-elct/ Fri, 15 May 2020 22:59:33 +0000 https://soundcrashmusic.com/?p=45297 One of the greatest electronic musicians of all time, Squarepusher, returns for a one-off show at Roundhouse. Expect a staggering specially constructed mind-altering visual show. Squarepusher will be performing brain-melting new tracks along with classic material.

SELLING FAST

20th November 2019 – After a 5 year hiatus that has seen him delve into a range of diverse musical projects, Squarepusher will return with a long awaited album “Be Up A Hello”, out on the 31st of January. Fans can enjoy a taster as the double-A side 12” “Vortrack” will be released on the 6th of December, featuring Squarepusher’s Fracture Remix which already caused a stir when it was dropped into his brain-melting breakbeat and jungle set for Warp’s 30th anniversary NTS takeover in June.

With this new album, Tom Jenkinson (Squarepusher) has returned to using a bewildering array of vintage analogue and digital hardware, the same equipment that first helped him develop his sound in the early ’90s. Something of a 180 degree turn, these synths, effects units and even a Commodore Vic20 are in complete contrast to the tools he used to create 2015’s ‘Damogen Furies’ – cutting edge software that Tom developed over the course of 15 years. The result is “Be Up A Hello”, an album that is celebratory with rinsing breakbeat tracks such as Nervelevers and Terminal Slam – classic floor fillers – as well pieces loaded with visceral atmosphere and melody in Squarepusher’s inimitable style. Darker moments such as Vortrack and Mekrev Bass illustrate Tom’s continuing fascination with finely balanced psychological overload. As such, “Be Up A Hello” gives a nod to the mayhem, joyousness and abandon of the DIY Essex rave scene that was a strong determinant in Tom’s work.

Like the mood of the record, the approach to making the album was fast moving and spontaneous; the nature of the analogue equipment requires many parameters to be finely tuned to generate a given set of sounds, making it difficult to revisit tracks to improve mixes and adjust timbres. Consequently the music was written in the mode of a diary – pieces were finalised and recorded in a single take, after which Tom moved straight onto the next piece. This attitude to music making was also influenced by the scene the album celebrates – a straightforwardness to music making and putting on gigs.

In stepping away from the Squarepusher moniker these last few years and exploring new territory (such as forming the band Shobaleader One to reinterpret an array of classic Squarepusher tracks, scoring music for a 1 hour CBeebies show and making the album “All Night Chroma” – a series of compositions recorded on the Royal Festival Hall organ), a renewed perspective emerged and it was applied when reconsidering this old equipment. Therefore, despite returning to hardware he used 25 years ago, Tom is still innovatively exploring new sounds and textures within it. As he himself commented “whilst analogue sounds can be cliched, if you look at the processes that generate them analytically, there are still ways you can create new sonic palates.

“Gorgeous, dappled electronics with analogue flourishes…” Clash

Indulging in his relentless fascination for sound and harmony, Nicolas Demuth, aka Parra for Cuva, commenced his quest for music at a very young age. Starting with classical piano and taking stops in Jazz, Pop and Indie music, the young artist soon developed a strong passion for electronic music that made him leave the countryside and move to big and creative Berlin. Using musical instruments, synthesizers and digital music editing, the audio designer masters the art of creating intelligent, intertwined music pieces from melodies, soft beats and sounds that he records in daily life. The result can be witnessed listening to his new album “Paspatou”: A piece full of well-mended electronica that touches the soul, somewhere between melancholy and euphoria and most of all: well beyond mainstream electronic music.

SOLD OUT

It is with great pleasure that Jon Hopkins announces Polarity – a new tour for 2020 – which follows on from the incredibly successful Singularity tour, where he performed sold-out headline live shows, festival dates and DJ appearances across the globe.

Taking in Royal Albert Hall London, Sage Gateshead, Brighton Dome, Salle Pleyel Paris, Helsinki Music Centre and Berlin’s Philharmonie – to name just a few – Polarity will, Jon says, tether together “the two disparate elements of harsh and fragile in my music.” He explains, “by going between the two, we’ll hopefully create some profound moments of stillness.”

Playing grand piano for parts of the show, he will be joined on stage by a small group of consummate musicians and long-time friends, consisting of acclaimed producer and guitarist Leo Abrahams, violinist and arranger Emma Smith and cellist Laura Moody.

Presenting his live show in seated venues will present a fascinating challenge for both performer and audience. “Right now I have a set that’s tailored to festivals and to standing crowds and intoxicated people,” he says, “and that’s been amazing, but I would say my deepest nature lies in the stillness, the meditative side of my music.”

Praise for Singularity:

“His long standing enchantment with nature, electricity and mindfulness glimmers anew on Singularity” Q4

“One of the most celebrated electronic musicians of his generation.” New Yorker

“A sonic realization of a better world, conceived in the depths of psychedelic experimentation” MOJO 4

Wovoka Gentle is a British folk/acoustic trio comprising twins Imogen Mason and Ellie Mason together with William J. Stokes.

With roots in folk and Americana songwriting, the Wovoka sound draws upon the psychedelic soundscapes of the late 60s as well as contemporary experimental, pop and collage music; marrying classic instrumentation with sampling, analogue synthesis and sound manipulation.

One of the most alluring components of their sound is their near-perfect vocal harmonies, where the intimacy of its members becomes evident. There’s a hymn-like resonance in these moments, which is echoed lyrically as the band deftly tackle religious themes of prayer, sin and redemption.

Having signed to the iconic Nude Records in early 2018, Wovoka Gentle have now released debut album ‘Start Clanging Cymbals’ on the 7th June 2019.

Sat 8 Feb 20       Liverpool, Hangar 34

Two absolute legends in the game, LTJ Bukem and Roni Size, are reuniting for a double headline show of mind-blowing drum ‘n’ bass.

Emerging out of the late 80’s as a DJ, LTJ Bukem discovered his passion for drum and bass when exploring the realms of jazz fusion. So it’s natural that when Bukem’s career as a DJ progressed in the early 90‘s and he found himself delving in to the studio, it was these frantic breakbeats in tandem with the melodic, yet almost awry bass lines of jazz instrumentation that informed Bukem’s creations, developing a progressive and textured sound equal parts anthemic and tranquil. The album was titled ‘Logical Progression’ and marked Bukemas an innovator, a tag that has stuck through his work on his own esteemed Good Looking Records imprint, and still bears strong today as Bukem continues to DJ extensively across the globe under his ‘Progression Session’ banner.

Bristol native Roni Size is one of the U.K. jungle scene’s most respected names, with production credits spanning dozens of labels, projects, and releases. Although not as quick to rise to acclaim (either critical or popular) as peers such as Goldie or LTJ Bukem, Size’s influence as a producer, label owner, and committed underground magnate figured him as one of the emerging sound’s true pioneers. The breakout success of his debut album New Forms (including Britain’s prestigious Mercury Award) finally confirmed his stature and vaulted him to a greater degree of popularity than any other drum’n’bass producer.

Slum Village with full live band: Abstract Orchestra https://soundcrashmusic.com/slum-village-hphp/ Fri, 07 Feb 2020 23:59:14 +0000 https://soundcrashmusic.com/?p=45101 + Illa J

EARLY BRIDS SOLD OUT, GENERAL RELEASE TICKETS SELLING FAST!

Slum Village bring the iconic sound of their founding-father J Dilla back to life at Electric Brixton.

They will perform with full live band Abstract Orchestra on J Dilla’s Birthday.

One of the most iconic and influential Hip Hop collectives of all time, Slum Village, are returning to London for one massive night of old-school flows and J Dilla-produced classics at Electric Brixton. Don’t miss the resurrection of the late, great producer’s sonic legacy on this rare evening with Hip Hop royalty.

Emerging from Detroit’s underground Hip Hop scene in the early 90’s, friends BaatinT3 and producer J Dilla quickly rose to notoriety for their immaculately produced beats and laid back flows that were unlike anything before them. Their first release thus found its way into the hands of A Tribe Called Quest’s legendary MC Q-Tip, who distributed it amongst Hip Hop’s elite and set in motion a trajectory to fame that saw the Slum Village-sound become incredibly influential during the 90’s and early 2000’s. Particularly, after the release of their now legendary album ‘Fantastic Vol. 2’.

In recent years, the collective has been struck by enormous tragedy with the passing of both J Dilla and Baatin. However, T3 and young producer Young RJ are keeping the work of Dilla alive as they continue to create music and tour the world together. Ever since, the pair boast collaborations with the likes of Kanye WestPhife DawgDe La Soul and John Legend.

Powered by Unit 137 and featuring Maxwell Owin and very special guest Jehst & more. 

Already receiving critical acclaim across the board, Joe Armon-Jones’ sophomore album ‘Turn To Clear View’ is being hailed as a remarkable moment in his career. 

Praised or pushing the boundaries of sound ,‘Turn To Clear View’ finds ArmonJones is expanding into exciting new territory. It’s a set which blurs the lines between bass-heavy dub, contemporary club culture and his background as a pioneering force in the modern jazz scene. That singular vision is heightened with flourishes of R&B, hip-hop and p-funk. It’s music of substance – relevant to the here and now, but sure to be heralded as an influence in the years that follow. 

Turn To Clear View has been previewed by key tracks ‘Icy Roads (Sracked)’, and ‘Yellow Dandelion’ which featured neo-soul visionary Gerogie Anne Mudlrow. The tracks have received support at 6 Music, 1Xtra and Radio 1 from DJs including Mary Anne Hobbs, Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Jamz Supernova, Tom Ravenscroft and Huey Morgan

Between his highly acclaimed solo career and his work with the influential Ezra Collective, Joe ArmonJones is at the epicentre of the London underground scene. The album reflects this with features by hard hitting rapper Jehst, Obongjayar (a collaborator with Richard Russell) , soul vocals Asheber, regular bandmates Oscar Jerome, Moses Boyd (a resident DJ at 1Xtra) and Nubya Garcia (signed to Domino as part of Nérija), whose uncompromising yet accessible sax on ‘You Didn’t Care’ stands out as a highlight.

Joe Armon-Jones has previously played Glastonbury, SXSW, Boiler Room and a sold-out headline show at London’s Village Underground, and has toured with the likes of Ata Kak and Pharoahe Monch

Talib Kweli

An intimate show from one of hip hop’s biggest names.

The Brooklyn-based MC earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years. 

“I’m a touring artist. I’m an artist that’s internationally known. I’m not just a local artist at this point in my career. I’m cognizant of the fact that what I do is beyond where it started. I’m trying to reach the apex of where I am now, but without turning my back on or dismissing what I’ve done before.”

After nearly 20 years of releasing mesmerizing music, Talib Kweli stands as one of the world’s most talented and most accomplished Hip Hop artists. Whether working with Mos Def as one-half of Black Star, partnering with producer Hi-Tek for Reflection Eternal, releasing landmark solo material or collaborating with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Just Blaze, J Dilla, or Madlib, Kweli commands attention by delivering top-tier lyricism, crafting captivating stories and showing the ability to rhyme over virtually any type of instrumental.

Mos Def will be performing a full live show as part of Beat Horizon at O2 Victoria Warehouse.

Yasiin Bey, the artist previously known as Mos Def really doesn’t need any introduction: Exploding into public consciousness as part of Blackstar (with Talib Kweli) in 1998, it was Mos’ debut ‘Black On Both Sides’ a year later that rocketed the New York rapper to astronomical heights, propelled by universal acclaim for the LP, which continues to be held up as one of the genre’s greatest ever albums.

The near two decades since then has seen an unprecedented output of critically acclaimed work, both as a solo artist and fierce collaborator.  Working closely with big hitters from across hip-hop including the likes of The RootsDe La SoulMadlibCommonDJ ShadowKanye West (signing to G.O.O.D Records for a spell) as well as musicians from outside of the rap sphere including Gil Scott Heron, Bobby Womack and The Gorillaz amongst countless others, Mos Def has never been shy in sharing his genius with other artists to create something special.

Corey Woods (born January 12, 1970) is an American rapper known to most as Raekwon (the Chef), one of the nine original Wu-Tang Clan members. Raekwon joined Wu-Tang Clan, the legendary hip hop group based in Staten Island, New York in 1992. When the time came for him to release his first solo album in 1995, ‘Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…’, hip-hop, once again, underwent a momentous transformation.

Having recently worked with JAY-Z on ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’, The Chef will later this year drop his new album ‘FILA’, featuring new music and collaborations from hip hop legends in Ghostface Killah, Capadonna, Method Man & Nas plus fresh material with UK soul singer Estelle.

Jeru The Damaja is one of the undisputed greats of east coast hip-hop. A contemporary of and collaborator with the likes of Guru, Premier, Beatnuts & Pete Rock and a leading light of game-changing hip-hop crew Gang Starr Foundation since it’s 1993 inception, he made his name as one of NYC’s most adept rappers striking out from the commercialisation of hip-hop culture and has always been a strong advocate for keeping it real.

The most innovative rap crew the world has seen.

will be performing a full live show as part of Beat Horizon at Brixton Academy.

In the early 90’s, when gangsta’ rap consumed the airwaves, and the majority of West Coast rappers strapped on their Locs, Chuck Taylor’s & Ben Davis’, The Pharcyde decidedly maintained a willfully weird vision. Opting to stay true to themselves with their left field but still South-Central sensibility, rap had seen few groups so self-deprecating and so smart, four visionary rappers adroitly able to split the difference between helium-voiced and hard-core.

Listening to “Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde” two full decades after its release, its sense of timeliness is unmistakable. Every song on the album inverts a hoary hip-hop cliché. With classics like “Oh Shit,” “Otha Fish”, “Ya’ Mama,” and hit single, “Passing Me By,” it is not surprising that it shipped over a million units, garnered comparisons to De La Soul and Tribe Called Quest, and everyone from Pitchfork Media to The Source has hailed it as one of the greatest albums ever made.

Speaking on the passage of time, their second release “LabCabInCalifornia” has revealed exactly how far-reaching The Pharcyde’s vision was. From enlisting a young and then unknown James Yancey aka J DILLA to produce beats on the classic “Runnin”, to collaborating with director Spike Jonze (“Being John Malkovich” “Adaptation”) on the video for “Drop,” it has consistently reinforced their steadfast refusal to tread familiar artistic grounds.

Today, The Pharcyde continue to hone their individual abilities while still carrying on the name & legacy in its original fashion. At Earth, expect them to seduce their audience with the same boyish charm that founded them at the beginning. Joined by Jungle Brother’s Africa Baby Bam who’ll be spinning old school hip hop tunes, this is simply an unmissable show for true hip hop fans.

Also performing at Brixton Academy on the day will be GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def, Sampa The Great, Goldie, Roni Size and many more.

Far from just a local hero, Jehst has been billed alongside living legends such as Lee Scratch Perry, Max Romeo, KRS One and De La Soul.

Byron Wallen’s Gayan Gamelan Ensemble interprets:

Boards of Canada’s ‘Music Has The Right To Children

Having previously sold out two nights at London’s famous venue the Jazz Cafe, Byron Wallen comes to EartH, Hackney and Bristol’s Thekla for two incredible shows in January. 

His fantastic show pays homage to Boards of Canada’s seminal album ‘Music Has the Right to Children‘ working with his rarely used Gamelan Ensemble for a truly unique night.

“Hairs sprung up on the back of my neck, and the audience screamed with appreciation” – Resident Advisor 

‘Music Has the Right to Children‘ is the debut studio album by Scottish electronic duo Boards of Canada. It was released on 20 April 1998 in the United Kingdom by Warp and Skam Records and in the United States by Matador Records. The album stands as the Scottish duo’s magnum opus, made all the impressive by the fact that it was their debut record.

An adult meditation on childhood, concerned with play, naïveté and nostalgia, all tinted with rosy pastoralism, the sensitivity of the compositions marry beautifully with Byron’s orchestration of the Gamelan sound.

London’s pioneer of dub, bass and jungle joins up with original collaborator M-Beat to head up a colossal night at Electrix Brixton.

Few people have contributed as much to the urban music scene in the UK as General Levy. Levy built up a consistent musical culture: from ska to rock steady, calypso to soul music, hip-hop to reggae music.  Even at the age of just 14, Levy was forming sound system crews and was already putting on parties around the Capital.

Since then, he has become one of the most in demand MCs of his generation putting out singles like ‘Tell Me Why’ and ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ as well as working on independent reggae labels like Fashion Records.  His debut album ‘Double Trouble’ (1992) and work on labels like Justice Records has led to global recognition. In the years since, Levy has collaborated with the likes of Sly & Robbie, Shaggy, Sting International and Artful Dodger amongst many more, and remains a true stalwart of the UK urban music scene who has much to offer and plenty of unique ideas up his sleeve. He’s gone on to be a major influence of the London Grime scene, and his BBC Radio 1 recordings alongside the likes of Dizzee Rascal, JME & BBK has racked up well over 10 million views online.

This December, General Levy comes to Electric Brixton for fiery floor-filling celebration of a pioneer of London’s world-shattering underground scene. 

Joining General Levy and M- Beat is Drum N Bass pioneer Grooverider who’ll be performing a one of Jungle set for the night. Filling out this colossal bill is Serial Killaz, Ray Keith, Ragga Twins Crew, James Rail and a very very special guest TBA!

Having been sampled by Jay Z on the Grammy-nominated song “4:44”, they were catapulted around the globe. This has lead them to work with Tyler The Creator, Guy Chambers and Pete Rock, to name a few. They have also been personally championed by Giles Peterson, Huey Morgan and the late, great masters themselves: Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley. From the success of this and their debut album “Late Nights and Heartbreak”, they’ve played such festivals as Montreal Jazz, Central Park Summerstage, Pori Jazz, Quebec City Festival, North Sea Jazz and prestigious venues such as Ronnie Scott’s and Blue Note Tokyo.

Hailed by many as the next Amy Winehouse or Aretha Franklin, Hannah Williams is an undeniable force. On stage she is a whirlwind of love, longing, anger and everything in between. Complex Magazine refers to Hannah’s voice as “Incredibly soulful and powerful.” After all, it was her vocal that inspired Jay Z to wake up at 4:44am and record what he later described as “The most gut-wrenching song [he’s] ever written”.

Her Bristol-based band, The Affirmations have also been highly praised for their “Stomp-your-feet and clap-your-hands type of soul music that lit up the 60s and 70s” – Popmatters

Consisting of violinist Anna Phoebe and pianist Aisling Brouwer, AVA is an entity of turbulent imagination born from the intuition and maverick spirits of two compelling performers.

The brand new upshot of this collaboration is the album Waves, newly released on One Little Indian.

Never conforming to expectations and yet instantly accessible, the music composed by these two exciting young artists is a sonorous consequence of two opposing forces determined to carve their identities into each other’s lives.

To watch them interact on stage is a mesmerising experience, distilling the ebb and flow of their musicianship into an addictive and captivating intensity.

AVA is about communion – with each other, with nature, with womanhood, with dreams and ultimately with each privileged listener encountering their stunningly fresh sound.

Paul Simon’s Graceland performed by The London African Gospel Choir https://soundcrashmusic.com/lagc-wrl-jzz/ Fri, 06 Dec 2019 11:00:10 +0000 https://soundcrashmusic.com/?p=43313

Bath // The Forum // Friday 6th December

 

“Infectious US pop on a bed of southern African grooves, sung with all the power and joy of a gospel choir.” – Songlines

The London African Gospel Choir was co-founded by Crystal Kassi to help London’s African community to promote the gospel, create a platform of excellence for African gospel singers and musicians, and popularise the African interpretations of gospel music. Today they announce a full UK tour performing the classic Paul Simon album ‘Graceland’ in full live on stage.  

The London African Gospel Choir have received extremely positive testimony from not only the public but also internationally renowned artists including Annie Lennox of Eurythmics and Paul Simon himself.

As well as performing with artists such as Emeli Sandé and Mumford and Sons, the group tour their own exceptional rendition of the iconic Paul Simon’s Graceland across the UK and most recently selling out shows on the East Coast of the States where they made a powerful impact on the public.

“What makes us different is that we all come from different countries in the African Diaspora,” she explains. “We have people from South Africa, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Kenya, Zaire, Ivory Coast, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Uganda and the Congo… We all come from different churches as well. The common denominator is our faith, although we welcome everybody.” Said Kassi.” You could say that this is a perpetuation of Paul Simon’s Graceland legacy, the way it has brought African nations together through culture.”

What also sets them apart is their repertoire – a dazzling reflection of the choir’s diverse membership and that includes secular songs with a positive message. It’s the meaning of the words that counts and Paul Simon’s Graceland – acclaimed as “one of the most iconic records in rock and roll history” on its release in 1986 – is a perfect fit with its uplifting lyrics and South African rhythms and melodies. They are releasing their long awaited first CD in August 2019.

On this huge UK Tour The London African Gospel Choir should feel right at home on stage with their joyous singing and dancing, and their unforgettable arrangements of Paul Simon hits such as The Boy In The Bubble, Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes and You Can Call Me Al.

Indulging in his relentless fascination for sound and harmony, Nicolas Demuth, aka Parra for Cuva, commenced his quest for music at a very young age. Starting with classical piano and taking stops in Jazz, Pop and Indie music, the young artist soon developed a strong passion for electronic music that made him leave the countryside and move to big and creative Berlin. Using musical instruments, synthesizers and digital music editing, the audio designer masters the art of creating intelligent, intertwined music pieces from melodies, soft beats and sounds that he records in daily life. The result can be witnessed listening to his new album “Paspatou”: A piece full of well-mended electronica that touches the soul, somewhere between melancholy and euphoria and most of all: well beyond mainstream electronic music.

Hannah Williams, the British soul hurricane who sensationally became part of Jay-Z‘s chart-topping 4:44 album, is primed and ready for her own national and international breakthrough.

 With a powerful, dazzling voice comparable to Adele and Amy Winehouse, Williams turned heads worldwide when the hip-hop superstar sampled her heart-stopping vocals on ‘Late Nights & Heartbreak‘ for the title track, ‘4.44’ on his 2017 album. Now Hannah and her exemplary, Bristol-based band the Affirmations deliver a definitive career statement with the drop-dead soulful new album 50 Foot Woman which will be released October 18th on the Milan based imprint Record Kicks.

The album captures all of the visceral power of the band’s increasingly legendary live performances. Shades of classic Soul and Psychedelic Funk blend uniquely with modern-day flavours on a record destined to set the soul agenda for 2019 and far beyond. “I’ve never been as proud of anything in my entire career” says Hannah.

At Oslo, Hackney, Hannah Williams & The Affirmations will deliver the live London debut of their highly anticipated album 50 Foot Woman. This is a truly unmissable night for fans of true Funk and Soul.

Roberto Fonseca https://soundcrashmusic.com/44245-2jzzwrl/ Sun, 01 Dec 2019 11:59:37 +0000 https://soundcrashmusic.com/?p=44245  

One of the most extraordinary and charismatic pianists in the world returns to London for a show at Hackney’s Earth after the release of his upcoming album.

“Cuba’s most exciting pianist” The Guardian.

Roberto Fonseca burst onto the world jazz stage in 1990 with his debut at the Havana Jazz Festival and went on to astound audiences across the world as a member of Buena Vista Social Club and the internationally acclaimed orchestra of Ibrahim Ferrer, then in 2007 he released his debut album ‘Zamazu’ to global acclaim.

Ten years and several solo albums later, Fonseca has proved to be an ingenious composer who draws on a wide and eclectic range of musical traditions and genres. His dazzling music draws on the traditions of Cuban and African music but he brings the lyricism of Herbie Hancock and the drive of McCoy Tyner as well as an unparalleled gift for melody. Fonseca returns to Ronnie’s performing music from across his repertoire including last year’s ‘Abuc’ that tells the rich story of Cuban music through a riotous, rousing kaleidoscope of dancing colours.

Martin Kohlstedt, producer, pianist & composer with a contemporary approach of mixing classical and avantgarde music styles.

Having begun his musical journey as a trained jazz pianist, Kohlstedt went on to leave his mark across the electronic dance floors of Europe, working with bands Marbert Rocel & Karocel. Alongside this, he began his composition, scoring the movies of international film-makers, audiobooks and theatre. 

Today, he has turned his attention back to the piano, using a contemporary experimental approach to classical and avantgarde styles. To perform, for Kohlstedt, is not simply to enact but to hold genuine musical conversation with his instruments. During extensive live touring across Germany & Europe, he has been able to refine and develop his compositions, incorporating the piano and electronic instrumentation. For him, music is never set in stone but a matter to be perpetually negotiated; something which brings a unique and powerful improvisational tone to his performance. He describes this as “modular composing”, a theory and approach which has caught the imagination of many, and led to him being invited to a TEDx talk in 2017.

With three stunning albums behind him, Kohlstedt continues to experiment and capture the imaginations of audiences and other creatives alike. His previous albums have been reinterpreted and influenced the likes of Christian Loffler, Douglas Dare, & Mathias Kaden. In addition to this, he’s worked with the likes of Rough Trade, finetunes and Broken Silence.

Youngblood Brass Band https://soundcrashmusic.com/youngblood-jzz-vu/ Tue, 22 Oct 2019 18:00:16 +0000 https://soundcrashmusic.com/?p=42878 Tickets available on the door!

A roof-tearing show of fist-pumping anthems from a Brass Band like no other.

Youngblood Brass Band flouts convention in an ecstatic, raucous, incendiary fashion, taking the form of a New Orleans brass band and morphing it into a punked-out hip-hop behemoth of groove and purpose.

Formed in Wisconsin, but hailing from across the US, Youngblood Brass Band have been unleashing their crash course in genre-bending on stages worldwide since 2000. Branching the space between the drama of hip-hop and the party of brass bands, they fill a unique space across the musical spectrum. Their White-hot live shows have secured the band’s status as an incredible group to witness, whether in an intimate club setting or in front of thousands on a festival stage. Having signed to UK based Tru Thoughts a few years ago, home to equally raucous acts such as Hot 8 Brass Band and hip-hop artist Ty, they’re continuing to evolve their powerful sound. On stages in the states and overseas, the verdict has been issued: the band has never sounded so good. Youngblood Brass Band has become an institution, one that demands to be seen and heard. Rigorous dancing is also acceptable.

Very last tickets!

A very rare headline show from one of electronic music’s most exciting talents.

Having caught the attention of the scene back in 2012 with his remix of Mt. Wolf’s track “Life Size Ghosts”, Catching Flies has been on the critical edge of the electronic music. Hand-picked by Bonobo to tour with him on numerous occasions, his music sits in “the smooth mellow side of electronic music”, and contains shades of everything from hip hop to house, from soul to jazz.

In July 2019, he released his long-awaited debut album, Silver Linings, a melodic mesh of bright electronics and intricate rhythms, described by The Guardian as a ‘jazz-soul-infused electro lullaby’ and ‘killer beats and a dreamy, atmospheric sound’ by CLASH

To celebrate the project, Catching Flies is coming to London for a very rare intimate show at The Pickle Factory.  Get ready for a very exciting evening of the finest brand new electronic music.

With influences across the board, from Miles Davis to Thundercat, Vels Trio explore their mutual loves and individual fortes from jazz, funk, electronic, and hip-hop. Their live performances are characterised by heavy grooves, frenetic energy and fiery improvisation.

Rooted in a process of constant refinement and development, the creative mission of Vels Trio is never complete. To see them perform is not to watch the reimagination of a previously perfected product, but to experience a continuation of the creative process. Having spent years jamming together, and performing live with the likes of Moses Boyd and Shabaka Hutchings, before putting their music down to tape, Vels Trio’s music yearns to be heard live, rooted in the unexpected excitement of the moment. A process which proved itself; When they did release their debut offering, 2017’s Yellow Ochre EP, they scooped a nomination for Jazz Album of the Year in the Worldwide Awards.

Some of the brightest stars of the blossoming UK Jazz scene, this is an unmissable evening of heavy groove and spicy improvisation.

“There’s no way around it: Neil Cowley is quite a big deal.” – Drowned in Sound

Dynamic composer Neil Cowley brings his new live show to London’s Pickle Factory this October.
Neil has recently embraced a new musical direction, incorporating electronic, ambient and neo-classical production to his improvisational piano playing. This musical shift was first reflected in the choice of artists on 2018’s ‘Spacebound Tapes’ that featured remixes by Rival Consoles, Throwing Snow, Christian Löffler and Vessels. Earlier this year his ‘Grains & Motes’ collaborative EP with Erased Tapes composer Ben Lukas Boysen was described in The Guardian as “a texturally interesting world that will appeal to Nils Frahm fans…slow-motion hymns, working within deliberately constricted melodic phrases but always wringing out a quiet grandeur and a beautiful sadness.” Neil co-wrote with Maribou State for their album ‘Kingdoms In Colour’, and recently remixed their collaborator Holly Walker who appears as a guest vocalist on his new EP ‘Beat Infinitum’.
Neil debuted this new show at Ghost Notes in February and recently played a sold out show at Oslo in Hackney.With less than 200 tickets available for this show, this is set to be a very special evening of new music from one of the UK’s most talented composers. Tickets will sell out fast.

Carlos Cipa is a classically trained pianist, composer and producer who combines classical concepts with pop culture- without reservations or cliches. Besides his solo work, he is a keen collaborator, creating music for film, TV, and theatre; his distinct orchestral compositions remain as intimate as they are cinematic.  Precisely because Carlos Cipa breaks apart conventional musical structures and constantly exploits unfamiliar sound worlds, his sound remains unique and with it he captures crowds of big festivals just the same as the audience of hundreds of clubs and concert halls all over Europe.

Later this year, he is set to release his third album Retronyms which sees Cipa bring together his background as a classically trained pianist and composer with his interest for experimental forms and pop music. On Retronyms, improvisation goes hand in hand with the high art of composition while acoustic(and partly unusual)instruments like the celestameet with electronic production methods or analogue synthesizers. Each note on this album is meticulously thought through and yet Retronyms radiates with visceral liveliness.

This October, Carlos Cipa comes to the stunning St Pancras Old Church, London for an incredibly rare show to perform his upcoming new album along with stunning original material.

Club culture meets hard hitting Jazz for one extraordinary night

After selling out his debut headline show at Corsica Studios, Theon Cross returns to the stage with his electric band for an evening where club culture and jazz meet at Village Underground.

Hailed by Gilles Peterson as “incredible”, Theon Cross and his swaggering Tuba Bass is one of the stand-out acts of London’s flourishing young jazz scene.

Based in London, Cross holds his own as an impeccable talent, having worked widely across the generic spectrum with musicians including Jon Batiste, Emeli Sande and Kano. Perhaps most well known as part of the award-winning four-piece Sons of Kemet, Cross draws from these energetic and game-changing performances in all his work, composing and playing the tuba with an effervescent inventiveness which distinguishes him as a truly remarkable musician.

At Village Underground, Cross and his band will get the dance floor heaving to syncopated blasts of brass, intricate drum patterns, and occasional astounding scraps of Tuba beat-boxing. This is Jazz like never before. Prepare to bear witness to the evolution of a genre.

Known for atmospheric instrumental productions, DJ Krush’s music is darkly mysterious and seriously addictive, completely befitting his past as part of Japanese crime syndicate yakuza. On the topic of his switch from crime to music, Ishi said “my body wasn’t built for breaking, DJing was the thing for me,” and Japan’s music industry has rejoiced ever since.

Upon entering the industry, Krush, with his experimental beats and instrumental sounds, changed the face of Japanese Hip Hop at a time when it was dominated by the American rap scene. Now, Krush has established himself as one of the most respected artists and producers in the hip hop industry, both in Japan and abroad.

At Oslo, Krush will be joined by DJ Food. Originally produced by Coldcut on the ninja tune independent record label, the DJ Food project started in 1990 on the premise of providing metaphorical “food for DJs”. DJ Food released the Jazz Brakes series, with Jazz Brakes Volume 3 being the most successful. The records consisted of collections of breaks, loops and samples, ideal for mixing, remixing and producing the trademark ninja tune blend of jazz & hip hop. With several Djs having played under the title Dj Food in the past, Strictly Kev is now the baton bearer and will deliver a night of mind-bending tunes.

This is a rare intimate night with Japan’s beats master. Don’t miss out.

Uniting two of Ireland’s most forward-thinking musical propositions – Eoin O’Callaghan AKA Elma Orkestra and Ryan Vail – ‘Borders’ is a singular collaborative project. Spanning symphonic ambience to widescreen electronica, it’s a genre-warping meeting of the minds from two of the country’s most innovative artists.

Unable to ignore the political questions arising from across the UK and Ireland, O’Callaghan and Vail collaborate together on this stunning project to explore the concept of borders and the dissonance between the abstraction of politics and the realities of the landscape which form it. Accompanied with drone footage taken of the natural phenomena which lie across the Irish border, and the frontiers seen within nature itself, this A/V show uniquely explores a hard-hitting current issue with an unsettling tranquility and mesmerising curiosity.

Talking about the show to BBC Radio 4, Vail explains his use of the drone footage, “I wanted to get across the beauty, that beauty spills over the lines, if you use a wider lens, you don’t see the border, its invisible”. O’Callaghan adds, “I think for us it was about forgetting the politics about it, and just showing the border for what it actually is; it’s this beautiful piece of land that we live on.”

This stunning eight track project sees O’Callaghan and Vail masterfully blur the contours between contemporary electronic and classical realms. This breaking of new ground – of pushing boundaries and thwarting expectations via attention to detail and a joint penchant for analogue equipment – is what underpins ‘Borders’. They perform it in London for one night only on at The Sebright Arms on 14th June 2019.

Support comes from Sleephawk, a London-based electro-indie one-man-band, enticed by the ideas of technology, loneliness and ambition

With influences ranging from Frank Ocean, to Lee Fields to 70’s film scores, Ofman’s approach to making music has the rare combination of aesthetic weighted by substance.

In 2017, he was one of the most popular sounds at Paris Fashion week, creating tracks for shows including including Sonia Rykiel, Afterhomework, and Maison Sentinel.

Peter Sandberg https://soundcrashmusic.com/peter-sandberg-2/ Thu, 06 Jun 2019 15:49:09 +0000 https://soundcrashmusic.com/?p=42355 An intimate night of skillfully crafted compositions in one of London’s most remarkable buildings

Swedish composer and multi instrumentalist Peter Sandberg comes to London’s St Matthias Church for an intimate headline show.  

Although known for his work scoring commercials for the likes of  Discovery, Netflix, and Tesla, Sandberg seeks inspiration for his personal projects from contemporary neo-classical artists including Hausckha, Johann Johannsson, Nils Frahm, Phillip Glass, and more. Operating from his studio in Uppsala, Sandberg’s work is essentially piano based, but casts together guitars, synthesisers and “all kinds of fretted instruments”. This marrying of the classical and the left-field electronica comes together to create magnificent pieces that flutter between the hushed and atmospheric to the dizzyingly vibrant and fast-paced, perfectly reflecting the constantly changing moods of modern life.

At St Matthias, Sandberg will take you on a sonic journey through breathtakingly complex compositions. This is not to be missed.
