Clement Marfo & The Frontline’s scintillating crossover sound is set to crash into the mainstream this year. Recently named as one of MTV’s Brand New for 2012 tips and one of T4’s Rising Stars of 2012, the genre-colliding septet will release their new single ‘Mayhem’ on March 12th on Warner Bros. Records.

Featuring a guest appearance from grime legend Kano, ‘Mayhem’ finds Clement Marfo & The Frontline twisting urban leanings with gargantuan pop hooks and a rush of energised rock dynamics. ‘Mayhem’ is indicative of the collective’s unique approach: they’re the sound of the city streets, the sound of aspirational youth rising above societal problems, the sound of a multi-cultural community uniting rather than dividing.

Brooklyn, NY - Vocalist AdraBoo and DJ/MC/producer Action Jackson, collectively Fly Moon Royalty, are excited to announce the February 6th release of their new, self-titled album, Fly Moon Royalty. The duo, which has drawn early comparisons to acts like Janelle Monae and Gnarls Barkley, is also giving listeners an early taste of the album with lead single "Lemonade."

Though Fly Moon Royalty came together only two short years ago, the creative process behind their self-titled debut came naturally for the duo. "We both just kept meeting in the right headspaces – going through similar situations and wanting to make music that we felt and really liked," explains Fly Moon Royalty. "We only used one feature, and we knew what sound we wanted."

The result is a tightly knit album that drips of chemistry, showing up strongest on tracks like "Android Love" ("Such a visually written piece; it's got great textures") and "Action Speaks," which shows off the range of the duo's abilities, mixing hip-hop and harmonies while showing off the pair's unique personalities. Elsewhere, "In The Woods" is a situational song that comes to life during live performance.

But the true standout moment comes on lead single "Lemonade." The up-tempo song is driven forward with swinging drums, handclaps, and ear-catching piano, all of which ultimately lay the foundation for AdraBoo's vocals, as she sings about taking advantage of life's fortunes and misfortunes. "This one is pretty much like it says" remarks Fly Moon Royalty, "when life gives you lemons, not only make lemonade, 'go and build a lemonade stand,' make it work for you."

Few Hip-Hoppers who have managed to make such a huge impression on the underground scene without denting the consciousness of the mainstream. Tonight we are blessed by UK appearances by not one but two artists who fit into this category in the shape of Stones Throw Record’s MED and Detroit’s super producer Black Milk.

West cost hero MED has an impressive stable of producers behind him. Having made his debut with Madlib produced Lootpack he has blessed beats from J-Dilla, Just Blaze and Oh No. It is little wonder considering the man’s stunning breathe control and his no holds barred wordplay. His latest full length album ‘Classic’ (Stones Throw) is just that, a bonafide underground classic.

Black Milk is one of the most prolific producers in the game right now. With a sounds that is distinctly his own and distinctly Detroit at the same time he joins us tonight for a very rare DJ set. Having blown up stages for The Doctor’s Orders performing solo and as one third of Random Axe we are really excited to welcome him behind the decks tonight for a set not only of his own productions but a selection of the tunes that have inspired him over the years.

This opportunity to see and hear these two rock a London stage together is not to be missed and if their presence was not enough for you then London’s own Piff Gang will be getting the stage warmed up with his witty takes on life in the capital while Spin Doctor & Chris P Cuts set the mood on the decks.
