About Soul II Soul: With huge hits including ‘Keep On Movin’ (which sold over a million copies in the US alone) and the UK number one single ‘Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)’, Soul II Soul progressed from being one of the leaders of the 1980’s warehouse scene to pioneering British black music around the world and securing commercial success for themselves and the huge amount of artists they have influenced. During their stellar career, the band has sold over 10 million albums worldwide and main man Jazzie B was awarded an OBE for services to music in 2008, as well as winning an Ivor Novello Award for Inspiration, as “the man who gave British black music a soul of its own”.
About Shy One: Shy One lives and breathes the eclecticism and diversity of London in her creative outputs. Often dubbed ‘the DJ’s DJ’, she has a reputation as a selector with a keen ear for the more obscure; digging and mixing between Hip-Hop, Jungle, House, Broken Beat, Jazz, Soul, Reggae and Dancehall. Shy One’s weekly NTS radio show ‘Soup To Nuts’ celebrates her musical evolution from the early days of her learning to DJ in North London’s pirate radio studios, listening to UK Funky in her mum’s car and then progression into music production, which’s earned releases on labels such as Eglo Records and DVA Music.
About Femi Fem: Femi Fem is an iconic stalwart of the London music scene and innovator within the acid-jazz genre and 1980s warehouse party scene. He set up the groundbreaking Mercury Prize-nominated group, Young Disciples with Marco Nelson and Carleen Anderson; they released the album ‘Road To Freedom’ on Talkin Loud which features the classic tune ‘Apparently Nothin’. He’s held down regular slots at Subterranean and Camouflage, his longstanding four-floor club in Islington and now has a weekly radio show on MiSoul as well as a monthly residency in Decimo at The Standard, London.
About Leanne Wright: DJ, Moonlighting Resident and Worldwide FM resident Leanne Wright first moved to London from Canada in 1991, immersing herself deep in the underground music scene. Wright has spent years creating visual identities and assisting club music and radio figures like Gilles Peterson, Benji B and Patrick Forge. Leanne’s time behind the counter at Honest Jon’s in West London also helped to develop her deep knowledge and broad appreciation for music. Drawing on this unique history, she always faces forward and has a finger firmly on the pulse of new sounds and scenes.
About Alex Turnbull: Alex Turnbull, or Alex Baby as he is perhaps better known, was a founding member of The International Stussy Tribe and one of London’s original hip-hop party DJs. He was the drummer for pioneering post-punk band 23 Skidoo as well as co-CEO/producer of Ronin Records, one of the UK’s first independent hip-hop record labels, releasing tracks by Roots Manuva, Rodney P, Skinnyman and Estelle. Alex’s legendary sets at West London’s infamous Rotation during the 90s introduced a style of playing and mixing that influenced many of the next generation’s DJs such as Manny Norte, Mark Ronson and Seb Chew. Alex has played around the globe, in London, New York Tokyo, LA and Paris. This a rare opportunity to see Alex Baby alongside his brother, Young Disciple and Rotation.
