Yes, Yes, Y’all. We are already entering into the middle of the year and the party is just getting started. First, let me thank those that came to the Rest In Power: J Dilla/Baatin tribute and A Few Good Men’s reunion we set off at Birmingham’s Hare & Hounds in February. In March I had a lot of support at my DJ 20th Anniversary gig “20 Year’s & Still Grinding” at Leicester’s The Hub. Tablist With Soul has come to an end at Turkey Café as it’s had a good four years run so thanks for the support from the DJ’s and side projects that tagged alone with the weekly gig as it was fun. Tablist With Soul will now be a monthly gig at Sumo bar, every first Friday of the Month. Birmingham’s One’s & Two’s has been great as it featured many rap talent from the UK and big support from the community. In April, Rest In Power: Guru (Gang Starr/Jazzmatazz) Tribute featuring A Few Good Men and Miss C Brown at The Hare & Hound was a great night, Guru is still with us. One of the greatest MC’s to touch a mic.
What’s to come you say? Well! June is Birmingham’s Bass Festival month and it’s going to be ill as we’ll giving you that brand new funk flav in your ear like Craig Mack.
