Murkish Nights 1st Anniversary + Fifi Rong // Neo Soul Jam
FEATURING... FiFi Rong Fifi has collaborated with artists such as Tricky, Phaeleh and Yello (three tracks on current Universal Records album Toy). Her seductive voice can be heard on the title track of Skepta’s hugely successful UK No. 2 and Mercury Prize-winning album Konnichiwa, which Complex described as ‘one of the strongest album openers in British music history’.
A groundbreaking artist, she is the first to succeed in organically integrating Chinese influences into western popular music, gliding effortlessly across an eclectic range of contemporary genres. Her trademark hybrid sound is a seamless blend of Pop, Electronica, Avant-garde, Alternative R&B, and UK Bass music, accentuating her unmistakably melancholic and sensual vocals.
Fifi has also received vast support from a stream of blogs and radio stations including The 405, Clash, Fader Magazine, Hype Magazine, Pigeon and Planes, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1 Extra, BBC Radio 6 Music etc, and was publicly voted into China’s Top 10 of most popular new artists with over 120 million streams to date.
The evening begins with a jam warming things up. We encourage everyone to take part of it, if you're bringing your instrument or your energy, please join us. Sign up to play and we'll get in touch!
This is a free entry event, with special importance given to the idea that everybody in the venue are sculptors of the music and art being created.
