On May 4th the GMS x Ninja Tune Exclusive Showcase took place at the iconic Fabric in London.
The audience was treated to tasty food, lots of drinks, a special playlist of unreleased music from some of Ninja Tune’s biggest artists, and life performances from TSHA, Weval, Working Men’s Club that got us moving all night. While James Heather captivated everyone with his beautiful piano performance, for which the room went completely silent.
We would like to say thank you to Ninja Tune and Just Isn’t Music for collaborating with the GMS, for organising this special event, and putting together such a great line up of artists and music.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for a night of great fun and brilliant music. We hope to see you all again very soon!
Those of you who couldn’t be there, this is what you missed out – “Ninja Tune x GMS After-Video”
Meet The Performers
James Heather: Inspired by Ludwig van Beethoven, Claude Debussy & his neighbour’s Acid House radio show, composing on piano became a passion. His art takes as much from electronic music in sensibility & post-rock in its meditative builds as it does its classical & jazz grounding. Heather is one of the new school set of ‘post classical’ artists flourishing and standing out in the wake of the wider public’s overdue but now burgeoning relationship with this varied genre.
TSHA: Hotly tipped by everyone from Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Bonobo and Gorillaz to Billboard, NME, Crack, Mixmag and DJ Mag, TSHA is rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting talents coming out of the UK. Her recent EP “OnlyL’’ showcased a confident creative who is constantly developing and refining her own distinct feel and sound.
Weval: The duo hail from Amsterdam, where they have been cultivating a unique sound that balances high energy electronic funk and emotive synth arrangements with bold, beautifully composed melodies and songwriting.
Working Men’s Club: A synthpop band that combines synth-rock, Krautpop, jolting dancefloor energy and the sonics of Cabaret Voltaire. Their music takes you on a journey through variety of sounds, eras and genres.
