Checkin in with my hometown talent!
Today I signed into my facebook page and was greeted by incredibly talented people.
The first is a guy I have known for a fair few years now from around Brighton. We share musical inclinations and I can always rely on him to book the best performers in my hometown of Brighton,UK.
He also runs an extremely successful hip-hop, funk and beats night (mid-week sensation!) called Donuts, I have written about it previously and never stop gushing about it. In a City like Brighton where Hip Hop is so revered and respected it was about time a night that honoured the work of Dilla and his influences took it’s rightful place under the station.
But I am writing about him here to share his own beats and creations!
The beats he makes are interesting and funky as hell. Check it fools!
Next up is a lovely lady whom I have only met a handful of times but we bonded pretty quickly over singing technique nerdiness and landlord beef!
This is one of her poems. It moved me instantly and even writing about it now I have chills. Never has there been a more important or influential time to use the arts and expression to try and make some waves in our scary and dangerous world.
This is a gorgeously filmed video of The Charleston dancers of Brighton.
You guys did a great job in showing such a beautiful city filled with beautiful people full of love.
