Oddisee & Good Compny Beneath the Surface Tour Featuring Oliver St. Louis   7pm, Saturday 11th March 2017   Islington Assembly Hall, Upper St, London N1 2UD   Advance Tickets £17.50 The son of Sudanese and American parents, Amir Mohamed was born and raised in the United States capital city of Washington DC, spending hot summers in Khartoum learning Arabic and swimming in the Nile. Growing up amidst the sounds of New York hip hop, his father playing Oud, Go-Go, and gospel, Amir took his first steps as an MC producer in the analog basement studio of his legendary neighbor, Garry Shider (Parliament Funkadelic). Convincing his entrepreneurial father that he too had business acumen, Amir laid the check from his first commercial release on the kitchen table before his 21st birthday and never looked back. Though Oddisee has gone on to perform with The Roots, produce for Freeway, Jazzy Jeff, Little Brother, De La Soul & Nikki Jean, and has MC’d on production from Flying Lotus, Hudson Mohawke and Kev Brown, his proudest moment was the birth of his critically acclaimed group Diamond District with fellow Washingtonians X.O. and yU. For this very special event Oddisee returns to London, performing at the amazing Islington Assembly Hall with the Good Compny band. This is guaranteed to be one of the finest Hip Hop nights of the...

No stranger to the live music scene, Doc has toured with De La Soul and Busta Rhymes, and was Mark Ronson’s rapper in his band set-up alongside Amy Winehouse from 2005-2007. Despite a long and wildly successful hiatus in film and television, a return to serious music has proved too much of a pull, as Doc himself says: “It’s the ultimate in unfinished business for me. Music was the dream when I was a kid. This is where I started.” Showcasing songs from his highly anticipated forthcoming album, Stemma. After nearly a full decade since his last serious release, this UK Hip-Hop veteran is sounding fresher and hungrier than ever. Expect killer lines, infectious hooks and barnstorming beats, and of course some special guests. This is not one to be slept...
