Who's Got The Hitz? Launches at the Jazz Cafe Camden
Behind The Hitz Presents Who's Got The Hitz? a new and exciting live music night recently launched at the Jazz Cafe in Camden. The idea of the night is simple - 8 acts perform one original track in front of live music lovers and reputable music industry judges amdist a healthy splattering of special guest acts.
After being entertained by DJ D Nyce the Who's Got The Hitz? competition kicked off just after 8pm to a packed house eager to see who would walk away with the Who's Got The Hitz? trophy at the end of the night and a place in the finals at the end of 2015.
Highlights of the night
Hosted by Wise Tola and Solomon Smith - Brixton Soup Kitchen, the night was great for all genres of music. From the talented 7 piece Hip Hop Orchestra, rock band Devil Say Dance, soulful sounds of Deleelah, the tight flow of rappers DW Pee and Shuqi The Rapper, Nick Howe who had the Jazz Cafe moving, Raff and his band who tore the roof off, capped off with a sprinkling of unique poetry from poet M.artz.
The competition was broken up with special guest performances from the mesmerising olah bliss who captivated the audience during her set, the cheeky Chancery Lane lads impressed with their catchy tracks and a blast from the past, Big Brovaz closed the show with their energetic 'Nu Flow' which provided nostalgia and had the Jazz Cafe singing along word for word. I must give a shout out to the House Band who were amazingly talented and switched seamlessly between artists.
Who's Got The Hitz?
Who's Got The Hitz? provides a great platform for new and more established artists to perform their hit track in front of the right people. The Judges for the launch night were Natalie 'Floacist' Stewart, Phil Kemish from Disrupt, HyperDub's Cooly G and K Bzzy Neva4GetDat who provided constructive feedback and honest advice to the attentive artists and went on, with the help of the crowd, to choose Raff as the worthy winner of the night. Closely followed by Deleelah as second runner up and M.artz coming in third place.
Who's Got the Hitz? returns to the Jazz Cafe on the 19th January 2015. I'd advise you to grab your tickets asap as it is a musical paradise for those on the look out for fresh talent.
