GIG: Tru Thoughts 10th Birthday Bash!

Tru Thoughts 10th Birthday Bash

Time really does fly! This month, Tru Thoughts, the independent label from Brighton, will celebrate their 10th birthday. What better way to celebrate it than a huge party?! So get yourself to the Vibe Bar on Brick Lane, London this Saturday 5th September. Proceedings kick off at 1pm and will go on until 1am – yup, that’s right, a 12 hour party. If you get there before 7pm then entry will be absolutely free – otherwise £5 on the door, as the flyer above says. Belleruche, Alice Russell, TM Juke, Lizzy Parks, Stonephace and Kinny will all be doing their live thing, whilst head-honcho Rob Luis, The Bamboos, Flevans, Natural Self, Hint, Nostalgia 77 and Saravah Soul will be on Djing duties. That’s a lot of talent at one gig!

Tru Thoughts have consistently outputted quality material over the past ten years and marked their place on the musical map as a label at the forefront of independent music, both in the UK and worldwide. Whether it’s been trip-hop, downtempo, nu-jazz, hip-hop, breakbeat, jazz, latin or electronica, it has always been top-notch. This is the label who brought you the likes of Bonobo and Quantic, after all.

To tie-in with these birthday celebrations, Tru Thoughts are also releasing a 3xCD box-set of some of their finest material. I’ve heard it, it’s as good as you’d expect (if not better!) and I’ll have a review up shortly. The Tru Thoughts 10th Birthday compilation has a total of 44 tracks, spans over three and a half hours and will be officially released on 12th October. Each of the three CDs covers a particular Tru Thoughts style/vibe; CD 1 is Downtempo, CD 2 is Club and CD 3 is Exclusives – so definitely look out for that.

See you on Saturday at Vibe Bar!
