SDF has quickly become the monthly necessity in any 90s hip-hop lovers diary. Since launching in March 2011, the events have gone from strength to strength, receiving press features from the likes of The Guardian Guide, The Evening Standard, Time Out, The Metro, SB.TV and hosting acts including Rita Ora, Conor Maynard, Rizzle Kicks, Josh Osho & Stooshe. This month we’re starting early & taking over The Jazz Café for 7 hours with some incredible live sets early on before we get deep with the 90s gems you all love from 11pm! Expect to hear 90s Hip-hop from Dre, Snoop Dog, KRS One, Wu-Tang, Nas, Biggie, Tupac & A Tribe Called Quest & RnB from TLC, Montell Jordon, 112, SWV, Salt N Pepa, Destiny’s Child & A LOT more.
Elro has racked up 1.5 million views on his SB.TV warm-up session, and is about to release his debut, ‘Bad News’. Mike Skinner (formerly of The Streets) has found it fit to resurrect The Beats label (once home to Example and Professor Green), for the occasion. With Skinner also providing the beat and his now D.O.T. partner Robert Harvey residing on the hook, the next chapter is soon to be revealed.
Cleo Sol In addition to receiving key TV & radio play, industry taste-makers (including MTV, MOBO) have marked her as a ‘one to watch in 2012′. Cleo signed her first major deal with Island Records in December 2011 and is currently working on her first Island release due Spring 2012.
