“There’s nothing like music to relieve the soul and uplift it” Mickey Hart
After coming back to London we had a rather musically inclined few days. Firstly hitting up Cargo in Shoreditch on Wednesday to check out Deavious hosted by Not Another. It was good to get down there and finally see Deavious live, after seeing Deavious progress so much in the last few years and after the release of his highly anticipated album Tin Man Army (Buy here – http://deavious.bigcartel.com/product/tin-man-army) it was great to finally see him on stage and with such great presence and impeccable flow – he really had the crowd pumping and was loving being up there. Dropping some of his key tracks from his recent album, Tin Man Army accompanied with some new material he is currently working from his upcoming Yellow Bricks mix tape we are definitely looking forward to his new release and to seeing his face more in the circuit.
Thursday saw us head down to Idiosynphonic’s part two of their second birthday celebrations at Relay in London Bridge. Although I have been to Cable more times than I can count, their sister club Relay was a first for me and what a great club it is – originally the mysterious third room of Cable which I didn’t even know existed the sister club is a standalone space in its own right. Headliners of the night saw Zeds Dead (www.facebook.com/whoszed) come over from Canada playing an unmissable set for all electronic dance fans amalgamating aspects of electro house, hip hop and glitch genres into their largely dubstep platform. Following Zed’s Dead on Thursday, Koven smashed the evening with an admirable set with energetic sounds infused with grinding bass combinations which really set the club off. His set integrated some if his classic tunes like Wake You Up with some astounding new material he has been working on. You can keep up to date with any new releases of Koven’s on www.facebook.com/KOVENUK.
