Fresh Friday Mix: Acid Pauli

acidpauli

One of my favorite Bao restaurants to go to lately is this hidden gem tucked away in a South London food market. It’s called Viet Box. The buns are absolutely fantastic, but the music is also always banging! They have a small Marshall amp on the bar that is just pumping out amazing deep house sets every time I go. The music is always turned up loud.

Raph, the chef is the man behind the counter selecting the tracks. I quite often find myself asking what he’s got on the playlist while I’m waiting for food. So this Fresh Friday Mix playlist is dedicated to you Raph. You’ve always hooked me up with some kickass food and tunes.

The last thing Raph turned me onto was a producer called Acid Pauli. Check out his latest mix from Überhaus The Garten to get your Friday going. And if you happen to be in South London, stop by Viet Box in Brixton and give Raph a shout.

Global Citizen Live: Emeli Sande, Little Simz & more

Global Citizen Live

International advocacy organisation Global Citizen announced today that Lady Leshurr, Kojo Funds, and New Lofi favourite Little Simz will perform at  Global Citizen Live London, with Maya Jama,  Adwoa Aboah, Ade Adepitan, and DJ Neev set to appear as hosts. The free-ticketed event will take place on Tuesday, 17 April at the O2 Academy Brixton, and includes previously announced performers Emeli Sandé, Professor Green, Naughty Boy, Gabrielle Aplin, Luisa Omielan, and Hussain Manawer.

The ballot for tickets has now closed, but you can still catch all of the acts from Tuesday night through a livestream of the event on their website. The New Lofi will be in attendance, and you can follow all the action on our Instagram & Twitter.

As hosts and performers, the artists will join thousands of Global Citizens who are demanding Commonwealth leaders honour Mandela’s legacy and make major investments to end extreme poverty by supporting women and girls, ensuring legal gender equity, providing access to education for children in crises, ending modern slavery, and eradicating diseases including polio, malaria, and neglected tropical diseases.

Since the first Global Citizen Festival held in New York in 2012, Global Citizen has grown into one of the largest, most visible platforms for young people around the world calling for an end to extreme poverty. Global Citizen has since taken its action-based model to Australia, Canada, India, and Germany.

For more information about how to join the movement, please visit www.globalcitizen.org and follow @GlblCtznUK on Twitter and Facebook and @GlbCtzn on Instagram and YouTube, or using #GlobalCitizenLive.


Who is Jimothy Lacoste?

He’s a boss. That’s who.

This London-based producer is a smooth operator in every way. He brings the British dry sense of humour to hip hop music with an electronic twist. It’s like nerd hop, and I love it.

Little Simz

It’s like…. how did I totally miss out on Little Simz? I just heard her track “Good For What” and I’m thinking that I’ve been sleeping on this talent. If you don’t know, Little Simz is a 23 year old rapper out of England and she’s currently killing it. Check out her sophomore album Stillness in Wonderland and get on this tip.

New Single from Inspired & The Sleep

Press1

Californian duo, Max Greenhalgh and Bryce Outcault have returned with a brand new single entitled “First Time.”

“I feel like when you’re alone for an extended period, you tend to naturally become guarded as a way of protecting yourself,” says Max when describing the track. “But it takes even more strength to get to a point where you can let yourself love again.”

The song draws from a wide range of influences from Canadian pianist Patrick Watson to timeless singers such as Jeff Buckley, Sam Cooke, Al Green, Sam Smith and contemporary artists Milosh and Daniel Caesar. During the recording process, the band became infatuated with vinyl sampling, which resulted in a total evolution of dynamics around the recordings and live show. With strong roots in the groove and rhythm, each song is precisely layered with drums, samples and manipulated loops, and polished vocals to top off and carry each song.
