Javeon is set to play next month's instalment of Clash Magazine's cousin night EASTnotEAST.
Detonating musical ley lines running the length of Kingsland Road, EASTnotEAST is a monthly conglomerate of bass munchers, beat herders and volume junkies. Based at Dalston venue Birthdays, the party returns on November 14th with a very special line up matching three newcomers against one another. Bristol bred maverick Javeon is set to play a joint-headline with FTSE, while Barnaby is also on hand to raise temperatures.
For now, here's a full run down...
PMR Records are fast becoming known for re-painting the face of modern British pop music. With a roster that already boasts Sam Smith, Jessie Ware and Two Inch Punch, we introduce their latest offering Javeon: a slow-jam soul man with sprightly beats.
From the Midlands comes pop producer and vocalist Sam Manville. Masquerading as FTSE, he’s already dropped two fluid EP’s that showcase some solid lyrical ability on top of his super clean productions.
Barnaby is a fresh and unsigned solo chap who’s finally bobbed to the surface with his debut track ‘Fresh Made Lemonade’. It’s almost four minutes of cashmere-coated R&B pop guided by his glassy vocals and fruity (in every way) lexicon. His live show will be a window into what’s to come...
The entire night will be sewn together by the sporadic micro-DJ sets of disgraced Glaswegian selector, Mr Mafro, who is famed for his legendary decade spanning clubnight Kinky Afro.
