THIS SATURDAY 5TH JUNE @ RICH MIX (BETHNAL GREEN) - AFRIKOKOA LP SHOWCASE - Featuring a live preview of songs from RICHY PITCH and M3NSA's LPs



AFRI-KOKOA presents the first live preview of Richy Pitch's Ghanaian Album Ye Fre Mi Richy Pitch (BBE Records) plus live performances from M3NSA’s forthcoming LP No.1 Mango St.

This event will be the first time that anyone will be able to see exclusive live performances and sneak previews from Richy’s new LP as well as to hear exclusive tracks and mixes live.

Producer and DJ, Richy Pitch moved from UK to Ghana, West Africa and took on the challenge to record an LP which drew on his many musical experiences during his stay. His goal was to record with local stars and talent and fuse the classic sound of Ghanaian music with his own production skills that he’d already developed in London.

Two years later and back to London, Richy knocked on BBE Records’ door to deliver Ye Fre Mi Richy Pitch. (They call me Richy Pitch in Twi) His creation gives the listener an excellent taste of the many different styles of Ghanaian and West African music all combined with a fresh production twist.

It features the cream of Ghanaian music talent including MOBO and MTV Africa winner Samini, Reggie Rockstone, known as the Godfather of Hiplife and talented MC's such as Wanlov the Kubolor, M3NSA and M.anifest, plus many other inspiring Ghanaian artists.

The live performance at Rich Mix will be led by Ghanaian MC, producer and singer extraordinaire M3NSA with talented singer Ndidi plus live beats and musicians also exclusively playing tracks from M3NSA’s excellent forthcoming LP No.1 Mango Street.

M3NSA is a very versatile and eclectic musician, named as one of BBC’s Top 50 Ghanaians, he has been the recipient of multiple accolades (KORA Awards, Ghana Music Awards and M-Net’s Channel O) and re-energising the music scene with his unique fusion of true school hip hop and West African home-grown hip–life.

M3NSA has the unique ability to fuse true school hip-hop with afrobeat and palmwine highlife. Being a multi faceted talent; singer/ songwriter/producer – he refuses to be pidgeon-holed and his witty and versatile lyrics mean he has created a very fresh and original sound.

His versatility is what makes him one of the most sought after artists today and is what inspired one of London's most respected DJ/Producers, Richy Pitch to recruit and feature M3NSA on 6 songs on his new LP ‘Ye Fre Mi Richy Pitch’

KEEP PLASTIC PEOPLE ALIVE Pt.1 - Best Club and Soundsystem in London Under threat of closure!! (FROM SPINE.TV)



Plastic People, situated at the top of Curtain Rd, in Shoreditch, East London has been at the forefront of nightclubbing culture for the last 16 years. Parties such as Co-Op, CDR, FWD and Balance have solidified Plastic People as the venue to reach to hear exciting new music over a superior sound system.

Recently an application was made to Hackney council for a review of Plastic People's license under what the music community has considered rather spurious claims.

You can defend this cultural landmark by signing the petition at:-

The music featured in this film is by FunkinEven, Fatima, Cessa, Mozez & The Raah Project.

SCRATCH PRESENT : SARAH LOVE (MTV/1XTRA) AND HOST MYSTRO @ THE BIG CHILL HOUSE (SAT 30TH JANUARY 2010)



Scratch are very proud to announce their next special guests as DJ Sarah Love and Mystro.

There is a strong link between our 2 guests this month as both have been an integral part of the Hip-Hop line up at the excellent Kung Fu nights. Over the last decade, both have made a big impact on the Hip Hop scene in the UK.

Sarah continues to impress with her entertaining DJ sets, so much so that she now hosts a regular show for BBC's 1xtra:-

She regularly appears on Trevor Nelson's 'The Lick' presenting new features and is an official VJ for MTV Base:-

Our Host, Mystro aka Mys Diggi, who has released music with a number of established producers and labels is also currently creating a big buzz with his clever and entertaining '2009 UK Rap Up' which has already had thousands of hits on Youtube after being posted just a few days ago, at the end of 2009.

Mystro recently released his F.D.T. Project on Don't Biznizz.

He is currently working on a debut LP, and on a number of independent projects with established producers such as C Swing (aka Black Einstein) and Scratch's very own Richy Pitch.

ROY AYERS @ THE JAZZ CAFE (30TH JAN 2009)

Really enjoyed this night, Roy Ayers played a number of classics, from 'Everybody Loves the Sunshine' to 'Running Away' and I got my 'Everybody Loves the Sunshine' LP signed by him too.

It's amazing, he's now 69 and able to give shows like this, he looked like he was really enjoying it to, (he was quite funny at times) I particularly enjoyed the version of 'We Live in Brooklyn' with the lyrics changed to 'We Shop at Tesco's Baby'

A great way to end 2009.

"He's a superstar!" and a legend!
