After September’s Third Birthday Party, we’re back end of October with a great new live hip-hop band/jazz band for the showcase, a top guest DJ plus the house band for the jam session.
For the showcase set, we are proud to present in concert, Project Hilts, the new live hip-hop band led and fronted by London MC/producer Hilts. He’s currently studying music production at Leeds College Of Music but was already a well known grime and D&B MC/producer in London before arriving in our city. This new project sees him fronting a full live 7 piece band including backing singers, all fellow Leeds College Of Music students, playing hip-hop with a strong soul/jazz flavour that takes it’s musical inspiration from the second golden era of hip-hop music, the 1990s. Talking about artists like A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, Common, Slum Village, Guru’s Jazzmataz, Dilla and The Roots. One of their first live shows so catch them here before they blow up big time. Onstage 9pm.
The jam follows at 9.50pm with the all-star house-band made up of the following top Leeds jazz/soul musicians :
Harry Fowler (Tetes De Pois) tenor sax/MD – Martin Longhawn (Svarc Hanley Longhawn Trio) keys – Malik Morgan Murphy (The Sugar Rays) electric bass – Joe Whettam (Joe Whettam Trio) guiar – Theo Goss (Slow Lorris/Freese Trio). They always deliver. Want to jump up, hit us a reply here or inbox our RE:SOUL Facebook page or musical director Harry Fowler. MCs, musicians and singers welcome.
Special guest DJ is the main man DJ Agent M, longtime leading light in the Leeds hip-hop scene as both a producer and a DJ. Recently graduated from Leeds College Of Music’s production degree course, he’s been at more RE:SOUL sessions than some of our house-band members and resident DJ, often with his camera or phone filming the live sets and then sharing them to a wider audience out there in social media land. Tonight, he’ll be playing hip-hop music (his own and other artist’s), neo-soul and jazzy grooves, mixing it up as we like to do at RE:SOUL.
The jam is hosted by DJ Lubi (Soul Rebels) and starts at 8pm. Project Hilts onstage 9pm. Jam session starts 9.50pm. Curfew is midnight. All are welcome. Great music and drinks promos plus entry is FREE!!!!
See you there. Three years on, let’s keep the RE:SOUL vibe going and growing 🙂
