Key Info

Pioneering New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat is the source of inspiration for this dynamic theatrical gig that unites a collective of award winning and critically acclaimed collaborators at the forefront of conceptual musical, lyrical, visual and physical storytelling.

Suckerpunch Boom Suite

Emma-Jean Thackray’s experimental beats with deep jazz grooves; Nkisi’s techno with African melodic sensibilities; Throwing Shade’s patchwork of peripheral pop; and Xana’s harmonic, beatbox-infused soundscapes, blend with abstract word-jazz by Jack Miguel and high-energy performance from progressive rapper Mikel Ameen.

Visual orator Michael Barnes-Wynters and digital art provocateur Dead Human create an immersive filmic environment animated by visceral dance and prose by Maya Williams & Titi Dawudu.

With DJ, actor, composer and theatre director extraordinaire Matthew Xia at the creative helm, expect improvised interventions exploring shared influences, themes and deeper truths present in Basquiat’s work.

Few visual artists have touched as many people across the globe as Jean-Michel Basquiat, whose identity and place in the world existed in multiple environments. In this spirit (and having left elated audiences wanting more after last year’s Afrofuturistic Pit Party) nitroBEAT’s Artistic Director Diane Morgan curates the evening to embody the soul of this iconic artist, poet, DJ and musician.

•Profiles

London born Artist/Producer Mikel Ameen is the leader of the World Changer Life movement. A culture brewing amongst London based creative’s powered by the phrase ‘Be the change you want to see’. Arguably one of the most electrifying performers of his generation his message is liberating, rebellious, unapologetic and all round inspiring. From his style of music production to his witty and thought provoking lyrics, Mikel Ameen is clearly set on being a trailblazer in this over saturated music industry.

Often dubbed an 'inspirational rapper’ Mikel Ameen’s approach to topics in his music is quite unconventional for what some would describe as ‘Conscious Rap’. He fearlessly tackles current affairs with raw-honesty a touch of humour, irony and often controversy which is all too lacking from our elected peers. His Stage credits include: T4 on the beach, Afropunk festival in Paris, sharing the stage with Hip-Hop veterans such as Wu-Tang clan and Jay Electronica to touring and collaborating with AfroBeats pioneer Fuse Odg. & Mobo Award

Often described as a maverick and impossible to pigeonhole, Michael (aka Barney Doodlebug) is a multi-sensory visual and performance artist and mischief-maker whose long-term artistic collaborations broadcast at the intersections of immersive experiential installations and provocative durational actions/ performances.

Having grown out of Bristol's original melting pot alongside the likes of Massive Attack's Robert del Naja, he has since became a crucial cultural instigator in the development of Manchester's radical output since the early 1990's. His collaborative arts practice asks blunt, relevant and meaningful questions that tackle human suffrage, racism, gender exploitation, injustice, control and the hyper normalisation of humanity by any medium necessary.

One of his numerous ongoing instigations, Dutty Lingo is a multi-platformed oral histories project that explores the influence of Jamaican culture upon UK culture. As visual artist for last summer's original Pit Party 'An Afrofuturistic Trip' he return's fresh from Hull City of Culture 2017 commission 'Where Are We Now?' alongside Linton Kwesi Johnson and Young fathers.

“…It’s the fire in my eyes and the flash in my teeth…”

Titi Dawudu is greatly influenced by the women who raised her and those she sees trying to change the world. Her work often features the strong, female voice, telling rich, complex and textured stories, such as her monologue My Daughter’s in Love being apart of Ishy Din’s Taxi Tales project. She won the Student Guide to Playwriting award for her play Down Hair and has had her monologue Old Me Now Me published in the Student Guide to Playwriting (Oberon Books), which was performed at the Bush Theatre.

Last year Titi was an associate with Tamasha Theatre and worked as an assistant producer with Soho Theatre and nitroBEAT. Womb, the tale of Mother Earth’s disappointment, won ‘best script’ at nitroBEAT Bites - a playwrights slam, voted for by the audience. Most recently, after a successful pilot with the National Youth Theatre, Titi is now producing a collection of ACE-funded audition monologues specifically aimed at BAME actors, a collaboration with Tamasha and 25 writers. These will be published in early 2018. Her work has included creating positive spaces for girls and young women and she has set up STAGES, an all-girls theatre platform as a response to this.

Nkisi is the alias of Melika Ngombe Kolongo, an artist raised in Belgium and now living in London. She's a producer, DJ and co-founder of NON Records, a collective of African artists and of the diaspora, using sound as their primary media, to articulate the visible and invisible structures that create binaries in society, and in turn distribute power. She's also a regular at the Endless club night, playing an exciting mix of fast-paced music that draws from many influences (from central and West African club tracks to gabber and doomcore. While producing her own tracks, she goes for a heavily layered, relentless sound, often playing with collective memory.

Beyond her own music and DJing, her work with NON has quickly garnered plenty of attention, as the crew’s web-savvy approach, international membership and outspoken politics have found an audience, giving a voice to like-minded children of the diaspora around the globe.

Many musicians speak of their versatility, but few can boast an MPhil from Cambridge specialising in African history, work in human rights law (predominately in South Africa), a Black Belt in Karate and enviable sonic CVs among their caches. Yet such is the extraordinary makeup of London-based Throwing Shade, aka Nabihah Iqbal, a rising producer, DJ and NTS Radio host whose latest House of Silk EP was released via Ninja Tune in 2016. Having debuted on Kassem Mosse’s Ominira imprint and followed suit with releases for No Pain In Pop (Patten, Grimes, Forest Swords) and Happy Skull, Throwing Shade continues her patchwork of peripheral pop.

In November 2014, Throwing Shade was commissioned by the Tate to compose a piece of music for the Turner Prize, and has since performed live in the Tate Modern and the Tate Britain, as well as the Institute of Contemporary Art. More recently, she collaborated with the artist Wolfgang Tillmans, performing in his Tate Tanks installation in March 2017. She has also just completed scoring her first film soundtrack for the Belgian director, Robbrecht Desmet. She is currently finishing up her debut album, which is due for release soon.

So far high praise for Throwing Shade has come from Pitchfork, Mixmag, Dummy, FACT, the Guardian, FADER, DAZED, i-D, Crack, Clash, the Quietus and Complex among others. As well as working on her own productions, Throwing Shade also presents a bi-weekly show on NTS Radio, where she shares weird and wonderful music from around the world, with the aim of playing listeners tunes they won't have heard before.

Emma-Jean Thackray is an award winning composer/ producer/ arranger/ instrumentalist/ singer and as a recent RBMA alumni, has been described by RBMA as "one of the UK's most exciting new jazz artists", as “somewhere between Madlib and Ornette Coleman” by Djam La Revue, “one to watch” by the London Evening Standard and as “supremely talented... the sound of South London” by Sounds Of The Universe.

Her recent release WALRUS is gaining a lot of underground support and sits in the collections of some of the worlds' finest vinyl selectors including Theo Parrish, Chairman Jeff Mao, Mr Scruff, Gilles Peterson and more, and was described by Rhythm Section as "one of the most exciting and unique jazz records of 2016".

Having trained at top UK conservatories in both jazz and composition she is pretty fucking good at loads of stuff, with acclaimed work as a producer, as a composer for large ensembles, as an arranger, a musical director, an educator, a solo performer and as a band leader with her quintet WALRUS. Her performances have taken her to renowned London venues such as Jazz Café, South Bank and Bussey Building to European festivals, across the pond to North America, and onto the same bills as Tanya Tagaq, Fucked Up, Suzanne Ciani, Fatima, The Eglo Live Band, Poppy Adjudha, Oscar Jerome, Alice Phoebe Lou and many more. Emma-Jean Thackray is one of the next big names in Nu-Jazz.

Her approach to contemporary dance places it's communicative nature as the driving force for creating movement. Spoken word consistently features in her choreography as a way of picking apart the elitist nature of dance, using the mediums of movement and language to remain accessible with no restraint to the artistry of the form. She is currently training on the contemporary dance BA at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Dance and Music. Prior to this she has interned with nitroBEAT at Soho Theatre, Breakin' Convention at Sadlers' Wells and has had a number of roles in the arts from assisting to directing movement.
