Mc Xander

Xander face

London’s MC Xander is a pioneer of human beatbox, making uplifting dub-infused post-hip-hop music using only his voice and a loop pedal (… and recently the odd bit of synth noodeling). But this is not just about beatbox. With lyrics that explore themes such as spirituality, society and existentialism in the 21st century, like something of a beatbox street-preacher, Xander takes us from big vibes to poetic reflections on life. He will be taking some rare time out of the studio and road-testing some new tracks from his forthcoming Songs of Agnosia.

Natty

Natty

Natty’s musical style of reggae, indie rock, Afro-beat and soul, mixed with a healthy dose of London street style was influenced by his mixed race ancestry. He was born in San Francisco, with an English/Italian father and a South African mother.

After starting his own recording label, Vibes and Pressure, success followed – he performed his first live Natty gig in August 2006, and was signed by Atlantic the following May.

His early TV appearances include performing on Later with Jools Holland and  BBC Electric Proms, his debut single, July, was featured as BBC Radio 1’s Record of the Week and Natty has collaborated with artists such as Roots Manuva, Tony Allen, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and Nitin Sawhney.
His debut album Man Like I is a diverse combination of acoustic guitar-driven grooves and Natty’s poetic lyrics, which captures the essence of the live of modern-day Britain. Natty’s concerns with racism have led to positive involvement with the high-profile anti-racist organisation Love Music Hate Racism.
