The Rebirth Live + Special Guest Chenai Zinyuku DJs Matt L-S & Jamesey (Makin’ Moves) @ The Borderline – Sunday 4th May

We’re excited to be co-promoting the upcoming Rebirth gig at the magnificent Borderline in London’s West End on bank holiday Sunday 4th May. Catch residents Matt L-S and Jamesey spinning before and after the show, which also features one of the most talked about talents Chenai Zinuyku who will be performing tracks from her ‘Living’ EP along with her full band!

This will be The Rebirth’s first gig in London for ten years so the anticipation for this gig is enormous! The word timeless best describes the sound of The Rebirth. While other artists are focused on recreating the latest trends, The Rebirth uses its seven-member fusion to keep the quintessential soul band experience center stage, while evolving the genre of soul music towards the future.

The Rebirth’s forthcoming full-length release, “BEING THRU THE EYES OF A CHILD” is the result of several years of self discovery, repurposing, and reinvigorating each member’s desire to persevere in their chosen passion. It’s a collection of musical creations that embodies the sound of a time and space that will never be repeated.

The Rebirth has toured the UK, Ireland and other European countries; they have played many festivals, including the South-Port Weekender, Big Chill, South Africa’s Cape Town Jazz Festival, The Blue Note tours in Japan, and The Culture Collide Festival. Now, along with the release of “Being Thur the Eyes of Child”, The Rebirth is gearing up once again to show and prove that soul music is still alive and that a passionate audience is out there searching for it.

The Makin’ Moves team our back with their latest event back upstairs in the loft at Bedroom Bar in Shoreditch. We’ve always enjoyed the venue as a space having used it in the past with it’s great wooden floor and intimate feel, in addition it now has a new hot Turbo sound system to boot!

Residents Matt L-S and Jamesey continue to make their mark in the London soulful/deep house scene as Makin’ Moves enters into it’s third year always taking the crowd on a journey through the latest underground house sounds!  Dont forget you can now catch Matt L-S every Thursday night spinning live on from 8pm.

Mark Francis our special guest has become a force to be reckoned with. An avid music listener and collector, he studied the artistry of the insanely talented DJs that influenced his career such as Tyrone Francis, Timmy Regisford, and Jihad Muhammad. Mark developed his own niche; an innate ability to ride and blend tracks that take the dancer on a rhythmic journey. Since 2008, he’s been a member of the Shelter family and you can find him djing regularly around the States and we are very happy to bring him to these shores for the first time!

On the production front Mark put out his first EP, ‘London Girl’s’ on London label Tribe Records late last year and has more EP’s which will be released this year plus a bunch of remixes for various labels, certainly a man to keep your eye on in 2015!

MAKIN027 – Greg Gauthier & Alex Finkin featuring Miranda Nicole ‘Sure Thing’ (includes Loftsoul Remix)

This release has been a long time in the making, produced in Paris, sung in Atlanta and released on Makin’ Moves from London! This track not only has a great song, performed expertly by Miranda Nicole but also has a real energetic feel and groove to it, just in time for springtime and WMC in Miami!

We’ve always been big admirers of Parisian producer Greg Gauthier for years, going back to his first releases on KIF and Qalomata and always wanted him and latest studio partner Alex Finkin to do something for our label and boy have they not disappointed!

Getting the right vocal for the track was a must and Greg really wanted to work with Miranda Nicole having heard her amazing work with the likes of Ian Friday and Souldynamic.. Miranda hails from Atlanta, and is one of the most talented soul singers to come out of the city alongside the likes of Avery Sunshine. We sent her the track and she really loved it and wrote a perfect melody and the rest they say is history, the proof is in the pudding!

The package also includes a hot Loftsoul remix from Japan’s main man DJ Uchikawa who takes things a little deeper. Uchi is one of the pioneers of the deep soulful house sound in Japan regularly performing around the world and at his club in Kyoto.
