Throughout the evening, renowned acts and newcomers on the UK scene will alternate themselves in the stunning backdrop of the Kensington historical music hall.
You will enjoy the unpredictable sound of Submotion Orchestra and Hidden Orchestra: two ways to update and keep music listeners informed about the development of the UK urban scene. Dub, electronica, ambient, dubstep, IDM, but also jazz, reggae and funk are just a few of the sounds which’ll find room in the compositions of these leftfield projects.
While it will all about hip-hop, old skool hip-hop to be more precise, with the The Pharcyde. Since the early 1990s, the Los Angeles group has a voice in rap history. Thanks to their playful style and well-known tunes like ‘Drop’, ‘Runnin’’ and ‘Passin’ Me By’, they’re still one of the institution when it comes to the West Coast sound.
With Andreya Triana on stage, the show will take on softer and mellow colours. In fact, the London-based singer-songwriter, who has already collaborated with Bonobo, Flying Lotus and Fink, is one of the most interesting electro-soul interpreters. Once on stage, she’s able to blend together all the cultural influences she has been exposed to by her city, giving them an airy, almost dreamy nature.
To avoid any downtime between the acts and close the event, Henry Wu (part of Yussef Kamaal and 22a Records crew) will bring to the Royal Albert Hall his DJ bag and empty out its contents, brimming with some of the finest soul, funk and house tunes.
