Review: Cortex @ Jazz Café (London, 15th June 2017)

It is not often that you can attend a live performance evoking a historical music phenomenon that no present music scene will ever bring back. It’s what music does, it transcends both space and time – we get to feel how innovative and unique that time was. And how relevant...
Review: Erykah Badu @ Eventim Apollo (London, 6th July 2017)

Review: Erykah Badu @ Eventim Apollo (London, 6th July 2017)

Erykah Badu is a force who subtly commands the stage with her jazzy voice, enlightened song-writing and empathetic connection. This was a much-anticipated return from the “Queen of Neo Soul” as she played her first London gig in five years (thanks to the work of Neo Luv). The venue was sold...

That’s why, when you ask him...
