Planet Slop Link Up with Out of Context for Liverpool R&B Showcase
Shak Omar, Remée and Jazmine Johnson will share the stage at 81 Renshaw in September.
Planet Slop is proud to be linking up with Out of Context for a sensational gig at 81 Renshaw featuring three of Liverpool’s finest up and coming R&B stars; Shak Omar, Remée and Jazmine Johnson.
Jazmine Johnson will be opening up; a 19 year old songstress who sits somewhere between Allen Stone and Lauryn Hill. She fuses rhythmical soulful melodies with raw lyrics to create the heartfelt emotions that ooze throughout her songs.
Second on the bill is Remée, one of LIMF Academy’s “Most Ready” artists in 2017, and is noted for her R&B and neo soul vibes. She has not only been championed by BBC Introducing, but her debut single I’ve Got You led to her being BBC 1Xtra Introducing‘s Artist of the Week.
Closing the show will be Shak Omar, who we have covered many times on Planet Slop.
Omar started his journey as an MC named 4tune Tella, as comfortable rapping over smooth hip hop as he was dance tracks. Last year, he reinvented himself as Shak Omar, with a vocal direction leaning heavier towards melody and harmony than before.
Although his R&B influences are clear, you also get the feeling that his music couldn’t have come out of anywhere but Liverpool.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’re ensuring that we keep it a celebration of local talent by only playing tunes by Liverpool R&B and hip hop artists between acts.
Out of Context’s Danny Black says; “This line-up showcases some of the finest new and upcoming talent in Liverpool. It’s vibrant, it’s diverse and it’s fresh; which can also be said for the collaboration between Planet Slop and Out of Context. It’s a crossover between two entities that share similar vision.
“I am very excited about working with Planet Slop, but also with this particular line-up. Shak Omar is absolutely killing it, Remée is one of my favourite artists in Liverpool at the moment and I really love Jazmine‘s style. I am excited to have them all play for us.”
Shak Omar, Remée and Jazmine Johnson play 81 Renshaw on Friday 7th September 2018. Advance tickets are available from £5 by clicking here.
