Anjelo Disons & The Oracle

Extraordinarily gifted; With words that are wise beyond his years, here is a talent that is undeniably overspilling with heart and soul.

20year old, Anjelo Disons from South London has arrived with a collective of musicians that really put London sounds on the map.

Backed by a sensational collective of musicians called The Oracle, written about in Clash, Guap & Noctis Magazine as ones to watch, Anjelo's performances are always an experience to crowds, from Southbank Centre to XOYO, the phenomenal blend of his unique vocals and virtuoso live band are unmissable.

GeeJay

GeeJay won a coveted slot to play at Love Supreme Festival. Aside from recent International performances at Sugar Club in Dublin, Lodge Room in Los Angeles, and the IQ centre in Kiev, they performed their own sold-out headline show at Servant Jazz Quarters in April 2019. They are certainly one to watch and one of the most exciting acts to emerge from the burgeoning Neo Soul and Jazz scenes this year. 

The story of GeeJay started in a coffee shop in Harringay London where Gina Jane (vocalist and songwriter) and Jacob Lobo (producer, saxophonist and keys) were both working as baristas. They soon started jamming on the café’s old piano and as the weeks went by, they quickly started to develop their own  distinctive sound by fusing elements of Soul, Funk and Jazz with urban hip-hop. The strong, soulful and emotionally-charged vocals of Gina fit perfectly on top of Lobo’s vintage jazzy chords, groovy rhythms and energized sax playing.

GeeJay’s debut EP ‘Thru Channel’ and second EP ‘City’ in 2019 gained critical acclaim from the industry media (Red Bull Music, Clash Music) and their soulful take on the classic Garage track Flowers was The Observer’s Hot Track of the Week.  The duo received further support from streaming services (Apple Beats One, Spotify, Colors and Café Nero’s in-store playlist) as well as radio stations (Jamz Supernova/1Xtra, Reprezent FM, Hoxton and Westside Radio)
