Hot on the heels of Jurassic 5 announcing dates for 2014, Classic Material & Mama Presents are delighted to bring Akil the MC to The Jazz Cafe in January for an exclusive London solo show. In the 6 years since J5 last toured Akil The MC has not missed a beat and will be performing a mixture of new material as well as classic J5 tracks.

This Saturday! Come one, come all!
I was invited to a screening of the new NeverNot by Nike Snowboarding last week. The 2-part movie features a diverse cast of the world’s most talented riders, Never Not brings viewers along for a nonstop, all-terrain mission to the bleeding edge of snowboarding progression. From the high peaks of the Alaskan alpine to Canada’s powder highway to the streets of Moscow and the American Midwest, Never Not presents a mind-bending blend of backcountry and urban action. Whether your favorites are veteran powder pros like Nicolas Müller and Gigi Rüf or young and hungry riders on the rise like Jed Anderson, Jess Kimura, and Halldór Helgason, Never Not is a movie that will inspire you to get up and go riding.
The website for the movie is really well executed. Killer design and you can view snippets from the movie there too. Check it out here.
Shout to Phil Young @ Prime&Fire for the invite.
Myself and Chris Read will be back at Glastonbury Festival this year, playing Funk & Soul music at The Meeting Point Bar every afternoon, 4-7pm.
Come say hi!
Last week, I was kindly invited to join 100 or so early adopters of Pinterest for a party with some of the folks from the team. It was great to speak to some of them (who had flown over from The States) and hear from one of Pinterest's founders Evan Sharp, as well as drink far too many beers & cocktails and eat 1 too many cake pops (as seen above!).
As most people know, Pinterest has been going great guns for a few years now, but it has now officially launched here in the UK. Anyone that hasn't yet signed up can do so here!
Myself and Classic Material partner Chris Read will be playing at the Jazzy Jeff show in April @ The Scala, Kings Cross.
Killer line-up so don't miss out on tickets, it will sell out!
More info and link to tickets here.
Looking forward to playing lots of funk and soul music on 23rd November 2012 alongside Chris Read (BBE Records).
Shoreditch locals, be sure to come along. I'll be celebrating my birthday too so the more familiar faces I see the better!
