TCQTwo of hip hop’s most accom­plished pro­du­cers bring their new highly acclaimed live pro­ject, fea­tur­ing a nine-piece brass and string sec­tion, to the UK for the first time.

When two of hip-hop’s most accom­plished com­posers & pro­du­cers join forces on a new pro­ject you know the res­ults are going to be spe­cial.

Ali Shaheed Muhammad (found­ing mem­ber of A Tribe Called Quest and super pro­du­cer in his own right) & Adri­an Younge (Black Dynam­ite, Jay‑Z, Ghost­face Kil­lah, Wu Tang Clan, Talib Kweli etc)  began their work togeth­er in 2013 on the crit­ic­ally acclaimed Souls of Mis­chief There Is Only Now and Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered albums.  Their part­ner­ship cemen­ted on their cel­eb­rated music score work for Marvel’s Luke Cage.

Inspired by the son­ic aes­thet­ic of Luke Cage their cre­at­ive dynam­ic was crys­tal­ised in a brand new pro­ject ‘The Mid­night Hour’, which was released to rap­tur­ous acclaim in 2018.

The Mid­night Hour is black excel­lence: an ode to the cul­tur­al soph­ist­ic­a­tion of the Har­lem Renais­sance that occured in New York in the 1920s.  The Mid­night Hour album is not just Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adri­an Younge, it’s two of hip-hop’s greatest pro­du­cers with a tight rhythm sec­tion and a full orches­tra as well as some of the most cel­eb­rated names in con­tem­por­ary hip-hop, R&B, soul & jazz includ­ing CeeLo Green, Raphael Saadiq, Mar­sha Ambrosi­us, Bilal, Eryn Allen Kane, Karo­lina, Questlove and more.

They take this snap­shot of this chapter of Black Amer­ic­an cul­ture on the road this Spring per­form­ing the acclaimed album with full live band, string and brass sec­tion.  It’s quite simply one of the most unmiss­able tours of 2019. Don’t sleep.
