From the organizer:
This Saturday 16 June, CAMA are continuing to promote international music in Vietnam’s capital by bringing Britain’s Spikey Tee to ATK.
Spikey Tee is one of London’s original “rude boys”. Over the almost 20 years that Spikey Tee has been working in the music industry he has progressed from being a warehouse DJ in London, to band member of avant-garde group The Sindecut, to lead vocalist in Jah Wobble’s Invaders Of The Heart. All the while Spikey has continued to DJ, mixing hip-hop, R&B, ragga, and drum ‘n’ bass into his sets.
A sharp MC, Spikey’s list of collaborations reads like a who’s who of the world’s dub stars including Mr Scruff, Morcheeba, Massive Attack and Bomb the Bass, as well as reggae legends such as Dennis Alcapone, Ranking Joe and Horace Andy to name but a notable few.
His DJ-ing, MC-ing and singing skills have taken him around the world to Australia, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Germany, Norway, Russia, Finland and even Vietnam, where CAMA had him play on An Bang beach in Hoi An.
For his ATK debut expect Spikey Tee to be dropping wicked Jamaican inspired soul-style vocals over his trademark mix of hip-hop, R&B, ragga and drum ‘n’ bass. One for the bass-heads – not the neighbours.
Ticket: 80000 VND in advance; 120000 VND on the door
Doors from 7pm; Spikey from 9pm
