  • Keeping standards high former Mercury Music prize winner Ms Dynamite makes a welcome return to the stage for November. Speed garage anthems, top ten hits and performances around the world are all boxes already ticked by the North Londoner, who'll be joined on the night by US superstar in the making Kenan Bell. Kenan stops off as part of a two-week tour of the UK, a change of pace for the former primary school teacher who turns pop, indie-rock and hip hop into sprightly, catchy rhymes with elements of the likes of Outkast and Madlib thrown in for good measure. Recent remix work has seen Kenan put his stamp on tracks for The Smiths and MGMT, so catch him up-close-and-personal with full-live band while you can. Further performances on the night come from Irish soulstress Laura Izibor, a girl who has been described as "snapping at the heels of Aretha and Alicia", one of Rolling Stone Magazine's ‘Artists To Watch' and currently putting the finishing touches to her debut LP, due on Atlantic later this year. Anita Blay, aka Thecocknbullkid, will also take to the stage, showcasing the sounds that have got tight-trousered NME types describing her as the best thing to come out of London since the Klaxons and the lovechild of Morrisey and Neneh Cherry. Throw in first lady of grime turned TV star Shystie and a few special guests to be announced closer to the date and you've got another night of liveness not to be missed...
