"SMOOVE PRESENTS For the first event of 2005, SMOOVE LIVE has invited none other than KANO to the stage for his first ever live London showcase. On FRIDAY 28th JANUARY 2005 and perfectly timed in anticipation of his forthcoming debut album, Kano will perform heard and unheard material to present his journey past, present and future. And of course this will include 2004 breakthrough track ‘P’s & Q’s’. The hit that took Kano from bedroom to bedlam as it spurred him into the grimelight amid a media and fan frenzy, with journalists chatting and girls chatting up. It is therefore no surprise that Kano has been targeted as the one to watch for 2005, as the press & public response has fired a very exciting light for this young MC from East London. From the first time his pen touched paper at the age of 16 when he wrote ‘Boys love Girls’ he has gone on to write and produce a contemporary catalogue of tracks that combine exceptional talent, creativity and vision. Now a leading member of the N.A.S.T.Y crew he has said farewell to his pirate status and gone on to support the Streets on a UK Tour, has a pending debut album for release in 2005 and now a very exclusive live performance at London’s leading urban club night SMOOVE. As well as being accompanied by his handpicked MC team, he will perform a 45 minute concert style live PA in the club’s infamous BOX to include ‘Boys love Girls’, ‘Leave me Alone’, ‘P’s & Q’s’ plus new tracks ‘Brown Eyes’ and ‘Typical Me’. Supported by resident DJ MASTERSTEPZ, BIONIX, CHOPPER and MAC 10 on the decks and D DOUBLE E, DEMON, GHETTO, WILEY & KT on the mic, this will be a UKG event to make musical history." See you there.
