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.

Maverick Sabre Performs on BBC3 Jail Tales

15 Mar

“Maverick Sabre performs an exclusive track for BBC Three as part of an ambitious multiplatform project called Jail Tales. There are more freestyles on the Jail Tales website from the likes of Ghetts, Asher D and JME as well as a series of short films and animations exploring how time inside affects people and the impact it has on their lives and those of their families. On March 29th, Ashley Walters will front a one hour Jail Tales special on Radio 1 featuring stories from offenders and music inspired by life inside.”

I’m defnitely a fan of Maverick, he’s simply unique and he’s even better live!

Maverick Sabre – They Found A Gun (Live) [Tune of the Day]

I had the privilege last month of seeing Maverick Sabre live at Industry Takeover as part of our 10 To Watch for 2010. His vocals are spine-tingling and the meaning is heartfelt. Maverick Sabre is definitely one to keep an eye on. Check out his Maida Vale Live Session with Ras Kwame on 1Xtra. Big stuff!
