Sister Elements launches a brand new hip hop night “Grandma’s Party” on Friday 30th March with a mix of live performances, dj sets and a short film world premiere

Performers

Fresh from a support slot with Souls of Mischief at Manchester’s Roadhouse on March 7th, Sister Elements, aka Sarah Sayeed, headlines by performing tracks from her new upcoming album. Described by BBC Asian Network’s Bobby Friction as “a 360 degree conscious artist & fearless lyricist”, she previously released her video .”Contentment”, and has since performed all over the world.

Further live sets on the night come from Manchester’s James Gill, some cool hip hop & funk sounds from female rapper Rain Freedom and a special performance from Ella Mesma, quoted by The Times as “Hip Hop dance’s ongoing potential for deeper expression”.

DJ Sets

Two of the UK’s hip hop heavyweights will be on dj duty. Sarah Love, fresh from supporting Aloe Blacc’s tour in December, and her own tour of Australia in January will be bringing you the real hiphop flavas she’s famous for since her days with Kung Fu, MTV and BBC 1Xtra. A new video interview with The Hip Hop Chronicle has just gone live where she speaks on the early days and her views on the scene today.

Excalibah is well known to the heads as an award winning dj for his Tales From The Legend BBC 1Xtra radio show where he gave early national airplay to artists such as Estelle, Pro Green, Sway and Plan B.

Film screening

There will also be the screening of the short film, “Hip Hop Had A Dream”. While researching his book of the same name released in 2008, the UK’s Damien Morgan interviewed a number of renowned names including Sugarhill Gang, Ty, Bashy, Ghostface Killah, Joe Budden, Professor Griff, Chuck D & Skinnyman for their views on the culture of hiphop, their early influences and the journey it has taken from the early days to now.

These interviews were documented in film and have just been edited together in a short 15 minute documentary set for its worldwide premiere at Grandma’s Party

Big night for lovers of Tru Skool hip hop & the emergence of another regular event showcasing the best in new UK talent.

2011 has seen a highly consistent level of video output from London’s Genesis Elijah

With his new album “I Aint Even Started Bruv” due out in early 2012, he returned to his ‘Civil Unrest’ EP originally released in early 2010 and ahead of his collaboration with Krate Krusaders on the album “Before I Was Famous” to film a new video for the track “Bellyfull”

The track predicts the riots and civil unrest seen in London and elsewhere in the UK during the summer of 2011, and was shot on the site of Occupy London outside St Paul’s Cathedral. This particular site was chosen by protestors due to it neighbouring the heart of the city’s banking centre….they had in fact tried to occupy the banking district but were moved on.

The protest itself gained further publicity as it led to resignations within the church as internal disagreements whether to support the action left positions untenable. They have vowed to remain in position until at least the new year, and the video contains live footage of Gen performing for people there

Also look out for Genesis Elijah appearing on 2 tracks for Ohio based MC Copywrite’s new album God Save The King which will be released in the UK in March 2012. These tracks also feature Mystro, Iron Braydz and Royce da 5 9.

Keep up to date with what he’s doing at www.genesiselijah.net and follow him on twitter @GenesisElijah
