Norwich Sound & Vision in partnership with Tru Thoughts present.......
Ty + Rodney P, with Harleighblu and Robert Luis.
With a reputation built on his original style and refusal to hop on any industry bandwagon, Ty is best known for his lyrical frankness and honest portrayals of everyday life, setting him aside from many mainstream hip hop acts and allowing him complete artistic independence. This has led to the release of four successful albums and a Mercury Prize nomination, among many high profile plaudits.
Since his days in the seminal UK hip hop group London Posse, Rodney P has been widely regarded as the Godfather of British hip hop. Inspiring a whole generation of British emcees and producers by being the first to rap in his authentic London accent, he produced a homegrown hip hop/reggae vibe that is distinctly rooted in the UK.
A 21 year old singer with an outstanding soul voice. Nottingham resident Harleighblu has been involved in music from a very young age. Growing up surrounded by her Mum’s record collection – a treasure trove of the best soul and rare grooves – she kindled her interest in music by emulating each of the singers she heard.
Robert Luis is the founder, co-owner and A&R for Tru Thoughts, the record label based in Brighton.
He has worked with and introduced a whole host of acts into the musical world, signing Quantic, Bonobo, Belleruche and Alice Russell and releasing their debut albums, as well as signing the likes of Nostalgia 77, Hidden Orchestra, Zed Bias, Rodney P and Hot 8 Brass Band.
His background has always been in DJing. Promoting and spinning at some legendary club nights in Brighton and booking and DJing with the likes of Mr Scruff, Basement Jaxx, Ashley Beedle, Groove Armada, James Lavelle, Fabio, Gilles Peterson, Roni Size The Nextmen and 4 Hero. Many of which made their debut appearance in Brighton thanks to Robert’s forward thinking musical mind. Robert currently has a DJ residency called “Sonic Switch” in Brighton where he plays a five hour set.
