Video + Photos: "Hello Skinny" Put Me On It Live @ The Old Queens Head

They say you shouldn't make a Youtube video more than four minutes long. They also say you shouldn't book experimental jazz (or whatever you call this) on a Saturday night. As you can see I don't care what they say.

Hello Skinny is an album and group created by producer Tom Skinner, who has played drums for [insert name of artist you love here], in this instance joined by producer in his own right Crewdson, and revered sax player / flautist Finn Peters. It was such an honour to have them perform at what was a really exciting test run for PUT ME ON IT LIVE at The Old Queens Head on 22nd December 2012 (I can now announce it will be a regular monthly event), alongside London's finest DJs Eric Lau, Marshmello, Kidkanevil, Kutmah and Josey Rebelle.  If you didn't make it - most of London had gone home for Christmas - please enjoy the video by Just Compositions, and photography by Wayne Thomas.

Extra special thanks to co-producer Elles Belles , Jack Prideaux, Mitra, the PRS Foundation and everyone else who lent a hand or came down.

The next event is Feb 13th 2013 with LA Salami, Valentina, Budgie and Marshmello.

I'm not one for end of year lists (my brain just doesn't work that way), so instead PMOI will be rounding up with a party with some of the people who helped make 2012 awesome musically; Hello Skinny, Kidkanevil, Josey Rebelle, Eric Lau, and Marshmello. There are a limited number of £5 advance tickets on sale here. We'll also be giving away some free tickets in the next couple of weeks on the Facebook page.

Hello Skinny is the musical moniker of talented musician Tom Skinner, and his recently released debut album of the same name. Featured on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood’s Bubbler series this year, his music has been described as psych-dub and cosmic electronic but he is quoted as saying “essentially it’s music from the heart”.

In a lastminute addition to our line up, legendary DJ and visual artist Kutmah will be joining us for a very special set, please just don't ask him for any requests.

Fresh from his European tour with Daisuke Tanabe for their recently released the "Kidsuke" album we have Kidkanevil, Red Bull Music Academy alumni and one of London's best loved hip hop and electronic music DJ/ producers.

Josey Rebelle is one of London's finest DJs, known for her show on Rinse FM and the depth and diversity of her selections - from her legendary Jungle sets, to old school hip hop of the highest order and downright dirty house and boogie; Josey’s musical knowledge and party rocking ability is undisputed.

Marshmello is the host of the beloved Morning Marauders show on NTS radio. An artist in her own right, another Red Bull Music Academy alumni, Roots Manuva collaborator, and 7" record devotee, Marshmello will be playing a set strictly for the shape makers.

As ever, our resident and PMOI family member DJ / producer Eric Lau will be joining us, taking a well earned break from finishing his second album. Renowned for his uplifting, deep and soulful sets, Eric will be making sure our last event of the year is truly memorable.

It has been a long time in the making, so long in fact that after trawling through 475 songs I had enough for three compilations, which I will be dropping once a week for the next three weeks. The cover of this one features Micachu, whose song "OK" appeals to a part of me I can't explain - either you have a thoughtful five year old punk inside or you don't. As ever, it's unlikely you'll enjoy everything on here, but I hope you'll listen with an open mind and support the artists whose music you do like...
