Approved: Ty DJ set at Old Queens Head

Club Tip CMU Approved

Since his excellent ‘Special Kind Of Fool’ album was released back in April, I have been taken in by UK hip hop star Ben Chijioke aka Ty. Over the last decade the cerebral rapper has had the pleasure of working with De La Soul, Estelle, Scratch Perverts, Talib Kweli, Black Twang, and Arrested Development.

Tonight he takes to the wheels of steel for a DJ set. Expect some food for thought in this set – I imagine his influences will be wide ranging and as interesting as the music he crafts. Should be a really good one at this boozer/club in N1.

Friday 20 Aug, The Old Queens Head, 44 Essex Rd, London, 7pm – 2am, free before 8pm, £4 after, more info at www.theoldqueenshead.com
