kano at astoria

KANO LIVE AT THE LONDON ASTORIA. SATURDAY 04.02.06

“BY NEXT YEAR I MIGHT HAVE A MOVIE IN THE STORES” -
from "get set - 679 recordings"

When news of Kano’s concert being cancelled reached the street level immediately there were parallels drawn between the way in which So Solid were locked down in their hey day. The surprise, which was most peoples reaction was due to the fact that Kano has never been at the center of a public scandal of the same nature of those from So Solid.

At the beginning of the performance Kano did talk about the previous concert that did not happen and sounded hurt at the cancellation, he also mentioned the significance of the night. As he was not being paid it was “all love”.

Nevertheless Kano returned with a next date early this month to give the fan what they had been waiting for. The venue was London Astoria, a significant venue for many reasons. The night proved that the scene has lot riding for it and that it can be the forefront a musical revolution. The crowd was very mixed and was probably what Kano has become used to after doing a nationwide tour.

Kano performed a good few tracks from the album “home sweet home”, those who are familiar will know Ps and Qs, typical me and the current track, brown eyes. Then the usual stage show ensued, with a performance from former members of his old crew in the style of a dj set from sidewinder. It seemed some of the crowd was not familiar with this format, in my opinion this is the most important part of being a UK artist: staying true to your roots, the same ethos held Hip Hop legends that made their scene what it is today.

Unfortunately the night seemed half finished when the curtains were called at 9.30. I feel this was not what the crowd were looking for and that particular move made the “concert” seem as if it was not on a par with other shows.

One Samurai - more A to Z

More street than the A to Z presented by one Samurai

DJ Samurai is a hip-hop producer from the UK who also ghost writers (weak rhymers apply here), spits, and DJ’s. Recently he has turned his hands to the camera.

The product that landed on the streets was a take on the legendary A-Z maps that tell you everything about how to get to where you are going. The analogy is quite obvious. If you want to know about the scene then get this in your DVD collect.

The highlights are the news and views from the artists that have been coming up on the streets last year. Kila Kela features, as does Lethal, Jammer and Skepta. Fire camp, Kalashnekoff, Sway and Aftershock also represent the hustlers ethic that runs through the UK Street Scene.

Thee quality of the edit lets the DVD down, but this is made up for by the amount of exclusive skits, freestyles and interviews. Watch out for the next instalment coming very soon. Also check out the trailer for a big UK produced feature called “rollin with the nines”, Winner of the Raindance award in 2005.
