Masego – TrapHouse Jazz from Southern swagger

BAM!BAM!BAM! presents Masego

Southern swagger, Jamaican blood, with a South African name, Masego is a Gumbo of culture and creativity. His music is best described as TrapHouseJazz. He’s the fusion of Pharrell, Michael Jackson and Jamie Fox both on and off the stage.

His journey began on YouTube. He put his 10,000 hours in live looping with his saxophone, beat machine and keyboard. Masego used to rip beats from SoundCloud’s future beat and house producers and add saxophone over them then head to Instagram and dedicate the song to a curly hair beauty from his explore page. His soulful singing and his jazzy personality colored every track and heart and caught the attention of many producers like Kaytranada,  Sounwav, and new greats like KRS and Medasin.

The Pink Polo EP with Texas Producer Medasin was the result of his SoundCloud antics. Their song Girls That Dance launched Masego and the TraphouseJaZZ band on a world tour. Japan, France, England, Germany and more got to experience Masego’s unique live show. Girls that Dance found it’s way to Jazzy Jeff who later reached out and invited Masego to his modern day XMen Mansion school for the gifted.

Masego nurtured his superpowers in Jazzy Jeff’s pool house, where legendary musicians and singers were constantly pouring in. Inspiration was high and the spirit of collaboration was high.

Jazzy Jeff’s experience inspired him to work on hundreds of records. Masego decided to drop another project,

He called it Loose Thoughts, a project full a energetic singles, more developed song writing and his beloved saxophone.

The glo up continues. Masego assists company Roland, design an electronic saxophone, garners the respect of fellow live loopers like, Kimbra, Wayne Brady and Ed Sheehan, travels the world once again selling out venues and demoing new music. He starts 2 Secret companies in Virginia, buys a fleet of party buses, and hints at a new another new project. The world will be watching.

Resonators – Live in Cristol City

Image

Resonators -British reggae at its best +Support

Resonators are at the forefront of the UK dub scene, forging their love of 70’s roots reggae with diverse contemporary influences to deliver their own exciting sound. Fronted by dual vocal power house Faye Houston and Kassia Zermon, this nine-piece takes us on a sonic excursion which reaches from the light and soulful, to the dark and gritty.

Ten years on from their beginning, their objective is more relevant than ever, to bring something reflective and positive to the world. Through the formidable craftsmanship of dub engineer DarrenJamtone at the controls, Resonators offer a powerful, psychedelic and euphoric experience both on record and on stage. Resonators have gained notoriety for their awesome live shows, as well as support slots for greats such as The Skatalites, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Jimmy Cliff, Fat Freddy’s Drop and Horace Andy to name but a few.

In the winter of 2016 Resonators released their third album, ‘Imaginary People’, “nine tracks of beautifully crafted, exquisite roots reggae”. (rootsreggaereview.com). 2018 sees them follow this up with two 12” releases (Wah Wah 45s) of previously unreleased material. Suited to the current global climate, the music gets darker and heavier. The message remains one of optimism, however, and the capacity for love and growth to conquer.

To launch these new releases, Resonators will conduct a UK tour. Having previously played legendary venues such as Brixton Academy and Brighton Dome, as well as major festivals across the UK and Europe (eg Glastonbury, Dour, Outlook), highlights from 2017 include “best live music” award-winning show of the Brighton Fringe festival,and O2 Forum in Kentish Town featuring Mykal Rose with Black Uhuru, Mad Professor and Coxsone Sound.

Resonators have received continued radio support across their three album releases and various single releases with airplay on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, 6Music and a live session on Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’.

“…a return to dub music of rare subtlety and imagination… the UK reggae act to watch.” John Masouri, Echoes Magazine

Honeyfeet – Misfits Fundraiser

Honeyfeet – Misfits Fundraiser

A night of knees up vibes, raising money for a great cause

With generous support from Trinity Community Arts this event is a fundraiser for the fantastic Misfits Theatre Company – providing creative opportunities for people with learning disabilities in Bristol.

‘I love this crazy place and these people. I’m a performer.’ Nick (Misfits actor).

Honeyfeet. Bristol’s favourite Mancunian export, Honeyfeet touch blues, folk, soul, jazz, hip hop and rock. Someone once called it ‘folk-hop and barrelhouse-pop’. Honeyfeet have spent 8 years tearing up festivals, theatres & clubs far & wide. It helps that they are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly, Real World’s newest signing and “a remarkable singer and flautist who can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul.” (The Guardian).

Honeyfeet are proud to be part of the Wah Wah 45 family. The  single “Sinner” was released in October 2017, with “Whatever You Do” following in early March 2018. Their new album, Orange Whip is expected late March 2018.

“I’m in love with Honeyfeet” – Benjamin Zephaniah

“Great” – Jools Holland

“Remarkable” – The Guardian

Nuala Honan. Close your eyes. Imagine Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch & Bonnie Raitt’s Australian love child. She’s alone on a massive stage in a cotton print frock and farmer boots, singing self-penned, heart-melt songs – just to you. This will happen.

Binbag Wisdom. Original organic Bristol hip hop. Flitting between darkness and light, heartfelt and flippant, serious and stupid, Binbag wisdom will delight your peepers & ear oles.

DJ Dad. Turning the tables before, between, after & forever.

Sally Reader. Mixed in Doncaster, proofed in Bristol & Brighton and currently baking to perfection in the Forest of Dean, Sally is our poetic hoster & toaster.
