Highlights from one of the best nights currently running on the circuit Vocals and Verses. Their June event at Vibe had a range of quality performances featuring Music is Remedy Favourites Rhythm of Men, Juliyaa and Cynikal plus an extreme talent that you should definitely be keeping an eye on Affie Jam.
Hats off to the Vocals and Verses team be sure to find out more about their forthcoming events here.
Juliyaa drops the first single from her forthcoming EP “Somerset Close” and its a bit of a monster. The production is big and live with a great 60′s blues, soul funk feel to it. Juliyaa’s vocal is classy and has the commanding presence that the track demands. Instrumentation is nice right up to the end and i love the way those final choruses build, with some very subtle changes in the arrangement giving it even more uummmph!
Looking forward to see what the rest of the EP has in store.
Friday night was a great @ Proud Camden as Soul D Out started the night off with a couple of hours of quality live music from some of London’s finest up and coming talents. The Remedies on house band duties delivered as always assisting Julie Iwehta, Juliyaa and Shea Soul in delivering 3 superb sets of vocal brilliance. Marie Dahlstrom also performed a strong set but it turned out they were all just warming it up for Incisive to step and and shut it down. The trio of musicians that joined him on stage brought a groove that had the whole room rocking. Setting us up with last year’s smash This Groove and then going into tracks from the new mixtape “Where Is He” he showed why live HipHop performances always sound better with a band. They were so tight and looked like they were having the time of their lives up on the stage. The energy that they gave off fed the crowd who in turn showed their appreciation singing and dancing along. A fine performance from an artist who insists on consistently delivering quality. Cop the mixtape here now if you haven’t already.
Salute to SoulDOut and Love Dough for a great Friday night.
