Soundcrash Presents Tru Thoughts

Soundcrash presents…Tru Thoughts

Saturday February 23


1a Camden High Street, NW1 7JE


Showcasing the very best talent Tru Thoughts has to offer, Soundcrash presents Tru Thoughts at KOKO in February for a massive night of live and DJ performances.

After the huge sell-out success of the Tru Thoughts event in 2011, Soundcrash celebrates this iconic independent UK label with a monster club night featuring the biggest names from the past, present and future of the celebrated imprint. With a quality selection of crossover live bands and DJs, expect the best in soul, funk, electronic and tropical rhythms, with a healthy dose of hip hop thrown in for good measure, and all delivered in a slick one-stop-shop Tru Thoughts package. Expect eclectic, electric and utterly compelling music from one of the UK’s favourite labels.

Quantic, the backbone of the Brighton powerhouse label for many years, heads things up, travelling across from Colombia for one of his famous DJ sets. Mesmerising, beat-laden sonic landscapes come from Hidden Orchestra, and Japanese live genius Anchorsong brings his multifaceted electronica.

The new British soul sound of Tru Thoughts’ recent signee Harleighblu will light up the venue, and the man who has brought the label collaborations and remixes from the likes of Skream, Toddla T, Mr Scruff and MJ Cole joins, Zed Bias (and his other Tru Thoughts alter-ego Maddslinky) plays a belter. Belleruche perform tunes from their hugely successful four albums of unique indie-soul; and one of the UK’s most exciting underground producers, Hint, brings a characteristic bass heavy party set. London Posse legend (and one third of Sleepin’ Giantz) Rodney P takes to the mic, and catch the dub-infused dancehall storytelling of up-and-comer Wrongtom and his wingman Deemas J.

Tru Thoughts label boss Robert Luis says, “As an independent label trying to push new and creative music it is great to get all the artists together in a nice big venue and showcase the different sounds that we support. These KOKO events bring the acts to a diverse and passionate audience who love a good party and appreciate artists that push their own unique musical agenda.

“I was blown away by the atmosphere and the response to 2011’s event, and the roster has developed even further since then, so I can’t wait.”
