Founded by MdCL in London, 2004, the concept of Freesoul Sessions is simple - MdCL armed with MPC drum machine and keyboards is joined by a rotating cast of top soul, jazz, hip hop and beat-artists coming together in the spirit of total improvisation. Each and every time, the live show is totally unique and a one-off experience for the musicians and the crowd. The first thing you hear is the metronome click of the MPC as MdCL builds beats from thin air, dropping the bass lines and keys as musicians join him in improvising beat-head bliss laced with singers and MCs. Hip hop meets House, Brazil meets Brukstep.. it's the mash-up session like you've never heard it.
We're celebrating the clubnite's 4th Birthday at Cargo with a heavyweight line-up, and the added twist that it's the London Finale of the clubnite. MdCL is leaving the UK to setup his beatmaking shop in Los Angeles. One of the finest live artists you're going to see performing his last show on UK shores for some time.
The guests for the 4th Birthday special include MdCL's favourite UK artists and collaborators: Bémbé Ségué (The Politik, 4Hero, Jazzanova), Vanessa Freeman, Tawiah (Mark Ronson), Sharlene Hector (Basement Jaxx), Mystro, Richard Spaven (Ty, Jazzmatazz, Jose James) along with DJs Phil Asher (restless soul, Phlash + Friends), Domu and MC Motet (Bugz in the Attic). It's the best of UK underground soul, breaks, house, jazz and hip hop brought together for one night only. Live VJ by cutting edge visual artist Soopanatural.
