Tuesday, 30 May 2017 at 7:00pm - Tuesday, 30 May 2017 at 11:30pm
Ty is one of the most versatile artist to come out of the UK.
Having featured on afro beat legend Tony Allen's beats ,Danish outfit 'Nobody beats the Beats', France's 'Hocus Pocus', US' Raashan Ahmad and on Uk jazz outfit Ezra Collective's latest album. His latest project 'WORK OF HEART' out is coming out with jazz refreshed soon.
TY's flow is unique and his lyrics adapts to whichever atmosphere he surrounds himself with.
His debut album on Big Dada entitled 'Awkward' in 2001 is a masterpiece, it's got the Jazz influence, the afro beat and the straight up boom bap and we are more than excited to see this album performed live with a live band!
Ty will be back by London-based hip hop band Unexpected Guests who have played with Raashan Ahmad, Chima Anya and supported Public Enemy .
Also on the line up, some of London's freshest jazz musicians !
Ty's vocal delivery is smooth, soulful, and relaxed with clear diction, a self-deprecating sense of humour, and little indication of anger or braggadocio; the accompanying beats are tasteful, crisp, melodious, stylistically diverse, generally laid-back, and sometimes mixed to resemble funk more than typical hip-hop;
