DO IT BIG! Music Showcase | Thurs 22nd March @ Cornershop Bar

I will be event managing the ‘DO IT BIG’ music showcase on Thursday March 22nd at the Cornershop Bar in Shoreditch. The show returns, after being founded by artist King Kash in 2005, to entertain you with a diverse collection rising UK talents. Check out the acts and make sure you come down!

Hosted by the Grace Laiker, music will be provided by DJ Shock (Kiss & 1xtra) and the show will feature seven impressive artists that you won’t yet have had the pleasure of enjoying this year – ‘DO IT BIG’ is keeping it FRESH. Asked to come aboard as event manager by King Kash, we will be bringing you a one-off showcase featuring a range of musical talents in the quirky intimate basement bar of The Cornershop. Performing on the night will be:

| King Kash | Cynikal | Dionne Reid | 2Amplified |  Angelo | Andrea Galaxy | Stampie Major

Not only has the rapper/producer King Kash been featured as one Flavour Magazine‘s ‘Future Flavours’ but he has performed extensively over the years and gained credibility amongst his peers. His EP ‘Worth the Wait’ is set to be released this year and is sure to be just that! Friend and fellow artist Cynikal (pictured below) is on the cusp of blowing up and has received support from MTV Base, Channel 4, BBC 1Xtra, BBC Asian Network, Choice FM and more -his performance is not to be missed. Heading up the females will be soulful singer Dionne Reid (pictured right), whose highlights have included performing at Glastonbury, Lovebox and featuring on a track with MOBO Award winning rapper Sway. She has received support from BBC Radio 1Xtra by being named Artist of the Week and getting playlisted.

Industry tastemakers, Urban Development, have described one of the acts due to perform at ‘DO IT BIG’ as ‘one of the most gifted emerging singers in the UK’ and fresh off the release of her ‘Star Music Vol 2′, Andrea Galaxy has cultivated a unique style of experimental RnB / Soul which she will be showcasing on the ‘DO IT BIG’ stage. Frosted Ice Inc. female duo 2Amplified have gone from strength to strength, gaining popularity since they formed in 2005. Together R!A & Klassic bring a fierce femininity to the rap scene which will be evident when you see them perform in the cosy Cornershop Bar basement.

Singer/songwriter/rapper/producer Stampie Major is a versatile artist to say the least and taking his influences from stars like Timbaland, Keri Hilson and Lauren Hill, he can’t wait to perform tracks from his upcoming EP. Rounding off the line up is Monir ‘Angelo’ Elouali (@AngeloSinger) who has had a passion for writing and performing since he was nine years old. This year he is putting the finishing touches to his debut mixtape ‘Forever Thinking’ and he will be sampling some of his original material just for you!
