Event description
CirKT presents London's freshest new music acts, featuring Brother Zulu & Urchin Ticketed, Live at The Oak.

About this Event

Brother Zulu

At a raucous, out of hand 150-person house party near Hammersmith, Brother Zulu performed their very first gig to an inebriated audience of budding scientists, engineers and medic students. Their eclectic setlist, wild genre jumps and spellbound audience set the tone for what was to come from the London natives.

The band’s members have border-crossing tastes: 1970s soul brought on by lead singer Max Tuohy meets a jazz essence embodied by guitarist Alex Hillman; the back catalogue of rare groove and funk that inspires bassist Noah Nelson meets the heavier hip-hop and rock grooves of drummer Youssef Abdelkhalek.

Combining the many elements of Brother Zulu is a production style as unique as it’s varied members, curated by versatile producer, keys player and classically trained flautist Lawrence Ajadi.

The band has received support as an Unsigned Music Award nominee, ILUVLIVE Hotlist artist and BBC Artist of the Week while catching the eye of tastemakers such as Tom Robinson, Gaby Roslin and Jess Iszatt.

If 2018 was the year that saw the band go public with their soulful crooner “Honey”, a sold out Camden Assembly show, performances on national radio and the BBC’s Biggest Weekend, then 2019 holds high expectations for the group as they begin their spree of single releases with “Fine!” and “Ice Cold (feat. Zoe Kypri)”.

Urchin

Leo Appleyard is a musician and producer from South-West London, releasing music under the name “Urchin”.

Originally an ambitious 8-piece band that performed at the London Jazz Festival and venues around London, Urchin now represents the sonic output forged in a secluded island studio, once home to the ‘spice girls’ in the early 90s.

In 2018, Leo took a break from life as gigging musician and escaped to the progressive music scene of Melbourne, Australia. Taking in the mix of house, disco and modern jazz from the northern districts of Fitzroy and Brunswick – ‘Take Time’ EP (released 1st March 2019) is the reflection of that time spent in a creative zone, in a new scene whilst underpinned by the narrative of UK producers Bonobo, Maribou State and the Cinematic Orchestra.

“…checks everything on the hypothetical, “what makes a perfect song” check list.”
