[Youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW14_RVdhUE]

Date: Thursday 22nd & 23rd July 2010

Venue: Theatre Royal Stratford East, London

Grab some loose change, top up your oyster card and jump aboard this musical excursion to discover the loves, conflicts, traditions, adventures and aspirations of the real East Enders. A co-production with Urban Development, Theatre Royal Stratford East and The Barbican, Re:Defintion explores East London’s rich past, present and exciting future through the eyes of its homegrown talent.

Commissioned for Create10, Re:Definition is to be held at Theatre Royal Stratford East on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd July and promises to be a truly unique music experience, fusing performance and multimedia in a breath-taking live concept album.

Strap on your seatbelt, sit back and relax as local heroes Ghetts, Maxsta, Devlin, Maverick Sabre, Miss D, Shezar and the UD Vocal Collective take you on a whistle-stop tour through the sights and sounds of the place they all call home. Think barbershops, backstreets and bus routes.

Throw in a live band, R&B songstress Shola Ama, soul veteran Omar, UK Funky maestros MC Versatile and Bongo Man of Crazy Cousinz and pioneers of the grime generation, NY and Lioness and you have a line-up strong enough to make any opponent envious. Re:Definition will also feature narration from Hackney’s very own wide-boy, lyricist Mikill Pane and has been directed for the stage by Matthew ‘Excalibah’ Xia. So get ready for a rollercoaster journey set to take urban music beyond Olympic proportions.

Besides, Tinie Tempah’s Pass Out,  I also have this tune on heavy rotation (and so does 1xtra).  Devlin is definitely going to be one to watch for 2010.
