CJ BEATZ presents: Sinead Harnett, Etta Bond, Grand Wa Zoo, All About She, Wide Awake

June 5, 2015


Stand is aimed squarely at those with a thirst for cutting edge culture and showcases the best in London’s cross-genre music scenes. Collaborating with those in the know, Stand follows the simple rule that if it’s stimulating, evocative and conversation provoking, it’s in.


Initially starting as a DMC DJ, CJ went on to head up BBC Radio 1Xtra’s RNB Show, and now traverses the UK with a series of residences that see him champion the sounds of the emerging underground.


Sinead Harnett is one of UK dance music’s hottest properties, dominating vocal duties on Disclosure’s The Face EP with lead vocals on the blog-baiting hits ‘Boiling’ and ‘What’s In Your Head.’ She has since gone on to collaborate with Rudimental (‘Home’ LP) Kidnap Kid (‘So Close’) & Eats Everything. The stage is now set for her to make her name as a singer-songwriter in her own right.


Etta Bond is the first artist to come out of Labrinth’s OddChild Recordings label. Drawing from the worlds of RnB and dubstep, Etta Bond’s third EP and debut solo EP, #CoolUrbanNewTalent, was released for free download at the end of last year and featured collaborations with Delilah, Raf Riley and Chris Loco.


Meanwhile, hailing from North West London Jay, Ryo, and Lili are Grand Wa Zoo.  Both Jay and Ryo rhyme, and, together with Lili’s smooth singing, the group have a unique sound, full of soul. The group’s name comes from one of Ryo’s childhood influences, Frank Zappa. Although the name of a Zappa album, they gave it their own meaning – ‘Grand’, then ‘Wa’ which means peace(ful)/harmony in Japanese, and ‘Zoo’ which relates to them, the world, and the surrounding people.


DJ support comes in the form of a special All About She DJ set. The Disturbing London Records’ genre-defying style has seen the band work with MNEK, Wookie, Roses Gabor as well as producing and writing on label-mate Sasha Keable’s breakthrough EP, ‘Black Book’.

Additionally, CJ Beatz’ very own Wide Awake, the London based production, DJ and live performance duo that comprises of Jordan Crisp alongside CJ Beatz himself will host proceedings.
