This is where I'll be on Thursday night... GET TICKETS HERE
This month's MyChoons is on Charlie's birthday - so not one guest, but six (yep - six!) will join Charlie and Andrew for another night of musical musings exploring the rhythms of life.
Don't forget to take part in MyChoons by telling us about the tunes that shaped your life here. Every tune that we talk about on the night gets a free ticket to the next event (and we already know you don't want to miss that one). And this month you can even leave a musical present for the birthday boy himself!
Our featured artist this week is singer Andreya Triana, newly signed to Ninja Tune. Her vocals are already in demand, featuring on recording for the likes of Fink, Flying Lotus, Kid Kanevil, Mr. Scruff, Bonobo and Theo Parrish. At this month’s MyChoons we’ll be hearing exclusive tracks from her upcoming debut album (and maybe even a rendition of “Happy Birthday” just for Charlie). We'll leave the last word on Andreya to Radio 1's Gilles Peterson who said: "I love her voice, and she's always on great tracks, but her own music takes it to the next level"
Joining us on the MyChoons sofa are five of the most influential voices in British music.
Chantelle Fiddy is editor of ctrlaltshift.co.uk and their bi-annual magazine, a columnist with RWD, Mixmag and SuperSuper and her own highly-rated blog. Where the music industry is concerned Chantelle has worked on projects with The Streets, Ministry of Sound and 679 Recordings amongst others.
Lulu Le Vay started out as deputy editor of mouthy fanzine Sleazenation in the mid-90s which led her to write for The Face, Jockey Slut and Xray through to The Independent on Sunday, The Evening Standard and the Observer. Along with writing and events, Lulu also manages artists, such as Spektrum, Crazy P, George Demure and more recently for marketing and talent agency Think Espionage, Beardyman and Ashley Beedle.
Hattie Collins is a journalist and a hypochondriac (in that order). Hattie’s the editor of RWD magazine and writes about music for i-D, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Big Issue and anyone else that will have her apart from the Daily Mail.
Emma Warren helped found mid '90s music mag Jockey Slut. A leading expert on the history of sound-system music, she's been a judge on the Mercury Prize on four occasions hosts her own monthly podcast, Wandering Feet for Red Bull Music Academy (feed://podcasts.redbull.com/rbma), and compiles the Steppas Delight albums for Soul Jazz Records.
Jacqueline Springer began her music journalism career at Blues & Soul magazine, before contributing to Vibe, the NME, Muzik and The Independent. Jacqueline currently commentates on BBC television and radio on contemporary black music issues. She also lectures at universities in the UK and the United States.
