Best of British Asian Music set for showcase tour

Some of the UK’s hottest acts from the thriving British Asian music scene are set to feature in a live showcase tour, hitting three cities later this year as part of the Live & Louder Tour. Electro-pop and bhangra fusion group, Swami, will perform tracks from their eagerly awaited album live on stage alongside renowned British Asian artists including, H Dhami, Romy, Abbas Hasan, Mona Singh, DJ Ri, Sham D and girl group, Serese.

The three events, set to take place in the Nottingham, Birmingham and Cardiff branches of The Glee Club in May and June will be hosted by DJ’s SonnyJi from BBC’s Asian Network and Tindy Gerewal, who found fame as one of ‘The Family’ on the hit Channel 4 TV show. News of the exciting showcase has quickly spread across the industry and Radio One DJ, Nihal, has backed the three events; he said: “Swami are one of the most consistently innovative bands that I’ve come across at Radio One. These live shows will be an exercise in audio adrenaline.”

The Live & Louder Tour series is the brainchild of Gareth Aston, Events Manager at national charity, Caudwell Children, who are staging the events to raise money for disabled children living in the UK. 

“After several years working in the British Asian music industry I was fully aware of the passion and enthusiasm for these type of events and I wanted to combine my experience with my desire to help sick and disabled children. The events are all about the music but our motivation is definitely the children.” commented Gareth.  

The three Live & Louder events take place on Wednesday 25th May in Nottingham, Wednesday 1st June in Birmingham and Sunday 12th June in Cardiff. Tickets are on sale now, priced £8 each, and expected to sell out fast. Tickets are available via the Glee Club Box Office on 0871 472 0400 or by visiting www.glee.co.uk.

Caudwell Children is one of the UK’s fastest growing children’s charities. Since 2000 the charity has provided services worth over £13,000,000 and helped improve the lives of thousands of disabled children with over 350 different medical conditions.

Bad Jazz Troupe

PURCHASE VINYL COPIES: JAZZ&MILK, HHV or JUNO
DIGITAL STORES: JUNO DOWNLOAD, ITHINKMUSIC, iTUNES

You could probably live without bad Jazz, but you don´t want to miss the Bad Jazz Troupe! Disregarding any kind of mindless rule – musical or otherwise – this reckless band revamps traditional rhythms and styles with modern production techniques.

The Bad Jazz Troupe brings together raw Afrobeat, Jazz and Funk elements with the latest achievements of the electronic revolution in the world of music. The result sounds fresh and original and yet reminds one of those days when Jazz was still something unruly, naughty and rebellious. What the Bad Jazz Troupe seeks to accomplish, after all, is nothing but bad jazz in the best sense.

The initiators of the project are two bad boys in otherwise quiet and peaceful Munich, Germany. Jerker Kluge, much sought-after bassist and composer (The Boogoos, The Hi-Fly Orchestra, Cesar´s Salad, Radio Utopia), provides an invaluable musical basis with selected players of the local Jazz and Funk scene. Their organic sound is infused with energetic beats and hypnotic loops by Dj, producer and labelhead Dusty (Jazz & Milk). Already in 2009 he created a dancefloor hit by remixing the Afro-Funk of The Boogoos. Back then Jerker and Dusty decided that they will continue acting in collusion and so they founded the Bad Jazz Troupe.

In the band’s live performances highly skilled and creative musicians merge sophisticated
arrangements with brilliant improvisations on top of Dusty’s inimitable percussive beats. Purists also get a chance to experience this sound at thome: on the A side of the vinyl EP they will find an electroacoustic fusion of musicians and producer and on the B side the original studio recordings of the band.

The Bad Jazz Troupe is available for bookings – bookings@jazzandmilk.com

Cleo Sol’s debut promo track “LoveBass” produced by DaVinChe

LoveBass is the heavily charged debut from 20-year old West London born starlet Cleo Sol. Cleo is set to rock the UK Urban music scene with her long awaited arrival via this sizzling promo single.

LoveBass blends essential elements of sassy R&B with Cleo’s stunning vocals to produce this fresh adrenaline fuelled track. The catchy chorus and metaphorical verses sees Cleo pledge her undying love for the bass line and the energy it brings: “It’s caressing my legs / like a lover in bed / I’m losing my head / But it feels so good”

She couldn’t pick a better time to release this guaranteed dance floor hit that will most definitely become one of the years must own party bangers.

During her early teens Cleo already began establishing herself in the industry as a featured artist on various tracks. Notable features include Tinie Tempah ‘Tears’, DaVinChe ‘Hero’, alongside Bashy on ‘Riding For Love’ and most recently on the official Orange Rockcorps anthem ‘Give A Little Love’ co-starring Roll Deep, Aggro Santos, Bluey Robinson and Bashy. Cleo also appeared on soundtrack to Noel Clarke’s UK Urban flick “4, 3, 2, 1” via club hit ‘Dancefloor’ with Wretch 32.

Cleo Sol’s unique look and swagger coupled with her girl-next-door persona help her stand out from the crowd. Her incredible vocal range demonstrates her capabilities of being diverse in the music she creates. This is the first instalment of many for 2011. She is more than equipped and ready to cement herself firmly within the UK scene.

DaVinChe, who produced ‘LoveBass’ has singled out Cleo as one of the most talented artists he has ever worked with:

“When we first began working in the studio, the musical chemistry was instant; Cleo’s ideas and energy help us to create the music we want naturally not forced. I’m excited for the world to hear Cleo Sol.”

Guaranteed to make all fall in love with the BASS.
