A New Monthly Night At Cargo – Presented And Compiled by Karen P
Karen P Presents… Broad Casting
Inspired by a series of fantastic compilations on Sonar Kollektiv; a new night is born!
Karen P has had a huge impact on the world of radio and provided a much-needed platform to an incredibly talented pool of musicians and performers from all over the world. From her work with Gilles Peterson on Worldwide to the creation and production of the groundbreaking underground radio station, Red Bull Music Academy Radio – and now her string of excitingly fresh podcasts, she is undoubtedly a hugely influential tastemaker in the scene. The Observer recently hand-picked Karen as one of the brightest and best rising stars in her field by naming her in the Top 10 of the media category for the ‘Future 500’, recognising the movers and shakers of the future.
Tonight we celebrate the launch of her new monthly night with a little tribute to Peacefrog Records (www.peacefrog.com), responsible for hundreds of stand-out releases scaling many genres. We present two exclusive performances representing their past and present, showing just how much they have achieved in their 17 years.
LITTLE DRAGON – LIVE / SWEDEN
All the way from Sweden and already making waves with their excellent self-titled debut album, Little Dragon pay an exclusive visit to the UK. Fresh from a tour with Jose Gonzalez, they bring a similar approach to their music as their compatriot and label-mate, offering up compelling, wintry melodies that soothe, bewitch and beguile.
CHARLES WEBSTER – LIVE LAPTOP SET
Now into his second decade as a true innovator in the electronic music scene, Charles Webster (Miso/Peacefrog) is one of the few real mould-breakers in an increasingly stale & predictable dance music world (though whether a man whose favourite artist is Rickie Lee Jones, and whose records ooze such soul and depth should really ever be pigeonholed as dance is another debate). Charles has sold over 100,000 albums without ever being considered ‘mainstream’ or having had a major hit single. For the opening night of Karen P presents… Broad Casting, Charles Webster has prepared a special laptop set with some very special guests. Expect the unexpected!
Broad Casting To Broadcast on RBMA Radio
The Broad Casting night will be recorded especially for Red Bull Music Academy Radio. It will fit snugly amongst an archive of music from the most iconoclastic DJs & musicians of our time. Left-field, underground, contemporary, genre-crossing; RBMA Radio is Karen’s biggest project since leaving ‘Worldwide’.
