Mutant Vinyl To Headline Emerging Artists Night at District
Singer and multi-instrumentalist Mutant Vinyl will headline the event at Baltic Triangle venue, District on Saturday 10th February.
The event brought together by Liverpool Noise & Ocean Waves will see five emerging acts take to the stage for what promises to be a boss night of live music.
Mutant Vinyl is the alter ego of British songwriter and musician Edwin Pope. Edwin has supported the likes of Rudimental, The Noisettes, Rita Ora, Kids In Glass Houses, Sway, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Mystery Jets, Electric Six, Wolf Alice, Beverley Knight, & Scouting For Girls during the past two years.
His track ‘Lavender’, has been tipped by Janice Long, Tom Robinson’s Fresh On The Net team, played on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, & Amazing Radio, as well as gaining heavy airplay in Europe & the US.
Edwin was also invited to perform onstage with trip-hop legend Tricky at the end of last year. The pair performed a track that Edwin co-wrote with Tricky to a sold out crowd at Manchester’s Gorilla.
As if all that wasn’t enough, Sir Paul McCartney is a fan of the former LIPA student, along with some other music experts:
“Excellent! Great sax riff” – Sir Paul McCartney
“a musician of the highest calibre. A special performer” – Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
“he’s absolutely fantastic. A wonderful performer.. such energy!” – Janice Long, BBC Radio 2
Support on the night comes in the form of some more former LIPA stars, the multi-national, alt-indie-hip-hop band Oya Paya.
It’s a packed line up with 60’s new wave three-piece Ladies, post punk duo The Debt Stars and newcomers Brickhouse also on the bill for an insanely good night of live music. And the best part? Advance tickets are just £3! Grab them here quick.
