Niche Productions Presents: This 11 piece live afrobeat/funk/soul/latin band is simply one of the best live bands in the world and features eleven of the hottest and baddest musicians New York has to offer.


This is high energy, rhythmic, contagious and political music that turns your shoes into dancing machines and your hips into a frenzy. Antibalas has been a fixture at the crossroads of international music since their humble Brooklyn beginnings in 1998. As a group entity, they are largely responsible for reviving and innovating an obscure but dynamic style of music known as afrobeat, tirelessly spreading its gospel to over thirty countries around the world, from New York’s Rikers Island Prison to the stage of Carnegie Hall, from Tokyo to Turkey.


As collaborators, they have worked with artists such as Paul Simon, TV on the Radio, Baaba Maal, Burning Spear, Public Enemy, The Roots, Angelique Kidjo, Sinead O’Connor, and Medeski, Martin and Wood. In addition, members of Antibalas have made their imprint on recordings by Mark Ronson, Ornette Coleman, Amy Winehouse, Beck, The Foals, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and countless other bands from underground to multi-platinum, spanning the genres of funk, jazz, soul, rock, and experimental music

In 2009, members of Antibalas have arranged the music for, and are also performing on Broadway in FELA! a musical about the African icon and afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti.

Gilles Peterson is one of BBC1’s favourite presenters, with his blessing deeming an artist worldwide success. From humble beginnings as an acid jazz DJ to hosting one of the most popular radio shows worldwide, Gilles has been responsible for aiding the careers of many of the musicians around today.

To date the label has released records by British singer/songwriter Ben Westbeech, 45 piece live act The Heritage Orchestra, Japanese punk jazz band Soil & “Pimp” Sessions, Brooklyn based pianist Elan Mehler, jazz vocalist José James, and two volumes of a soulful compilation album series called Brownswood Bubblers.


Releasing over 30 mixtape albums to date, Gilles Peterson is perhaps one of the most famous DJs on the planet, and is a regular feature at festivals all over the world.

LOVE THE BEAST Mixtape by Hau Latukefu


If you’ve been wondering what Aria award winning Hip-Hop act Koolism are doing with their downtime besides recording their new album or rest and relaxation, I have three words for you: LOVE THE BEAST!  Hau’s itch to write and record during Koolism’s downtime period has manifested into this carefully crafted mixtape project released on Valentines Day – his first ever solo venture. Without revealing too much, this mixtape serves Love on jacked up beats, that will leave heads nodding and bodies moving. Love the Beast is not heart wrenchingly deep where you want to jump out of a building as a grandiose gesture to your beloved, rather it is more  a celebration of those in his life that inspire him through love including his long love affair with music.  Showcasing his lyrical agility, vocal ability as a soulful singer and spoken word poetry, Hau’s confessions are confident, certain, light, fun, warm and energetic –  the many shades of love.

In his own words, “The ‘Love the Beast’ mixtape is just a compilation of solo material I’ve been working on on my downtime from Koolism. I enjoy just writing and recording period, so with the Koolism album not coming out for at least a few months, I thought I’d throw some tunes out into the ether in the form of a mixtape for people, other than myself, to enjoy. And what better day to drop it than on Valentine’s?”

Just a Koolism teaser….

Koolism are back in the studio working hard on their new album entitled “The Umu” which is set to be released in a few months time. Here is a behind the scenes look at production with Danielsan providing a rare glimpse into their world of creation. The making of ‘Have/Have Not’ behind the scene features spine tingling vocal harmonies featuring Mahalia Barnes and a host of other back up vocalists laying down what sounds like a very dope track indeed!
