With a sample-hunting, studio-meddling mindset, Skinny Pelembe’s music roams hazy afro-tipped soul with psychedelic tangents. Born in Johannesburg, growing up in Doncaster, he’s a sparkling multi-instrumentalist who blends his production, guitar, singing and MCing to tap into a unique, influence-weaving sound.
Beautifully melding elements of soul and hip-hop, this 8-piece collective have an upfront, bright and energetic stage presence to match their growing catalogue of lyrical originals with big bass and dynamic lyricism.
Snazzback have been busking the cold-stretch in Bristol, bringing the streets an echo of something else. Their songs play with undulating jazz/ improvisation shimmering afro-cuban rhythms and deep soul/funk grooves. Having hosted several impromptu street-parties last summer in Bristol, the 5-piece street-jazzers are now between street and stage, to bring their freezing new grooves inside and play them off piste!
