    Anamorphic, Crilli and Step Drum & Bass presents Jubei |




    Anamorphic, Crilli and Step Drum & Bass join forces to bring an unmissable one off event featuring a very special guest - the legendary Jubei (Metalheadz).

    Jubei is a name that’s on the lips of every drum & bass DJ who’s in the know. Whether it’s his solo productions, his work as a member of Code 3 (with SP:MC and Dakuan) or collaborations with the likes of Breakage, Alix Perez, Rockwell, Phobia, Icicle, Ulterior Motive, Vicious Circle, Cern, SPY, Lenzman, Logistics and Fierce, his music features heavily in the sets of the top tastemakers in the scene.
    Drum & Bass pioneer Goldie recently enlisted Jubei to help engineer his orchestral piece 'Sine Tempus' for the BBC Proms and ‘Classic Goldie’ TV show and in the process signed a debut EP to his own Metalheadz label. Already in the pipeline are releases for DJ Friction’s Shogun Audio, Doc Scott’s 31 Records, dBridge’s Exit and Kasra’s Critical Music plus more for Metalheadz.
    As a DJ, Jubei was a resident at Newcastle’s infamous Turbulence and regularly plays drum & bass institutions such as Metalheadz, Renegade Hardware and Fabric in London, Bristol's Dissident, Cambridges Spoonfed, StarWarz in Ghent and further flung destinations including Japan.

    Getting to Know with Leah McFall |



    An evening of live interview, performance and discussion.

    ‘Getting To Know…’ is a regular series at the Oh Yeah music centre that explores the writing and recording processes of a given act and encourages the audience to provide feedback. Expect discourse, performance and surprise.

    Most will know Leah McFall from the hit TV show The Voice (2013) who established an unprecedented record for the big box show by storming the Official UK Top Ten Charts with her live version of Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive'. Her powerful rendition of the disco classic demonstrated a world class vocal talent and a strong statement of intent - a short four years later and Leah is operating as a fiercely independent solo artist embracing the world through her trademark edgy style, song and soul. Since embracing the independent life Leah has released a mini album, completed a sold out UK tour and clocked up 500,000+ YouTube views - her story is colourful, compelling and from Newtownabbey with love.

    The Oh Yeah Legend Award and NI Music Prize in association with Blue Moon. |



    The Oh Yeah Legend Award and NI Music Prize in association with Blue Moon.
    Mandela Hall, Belfast, November 11th.

    8pm,  £15

    Tickets from Eventbrite: -  nimp.eventbrite.com

    Vivian Campbell will receive this year’s Oh Yeah Legend Award. The event which runs alongside the NI Music Prize, recognises the exceptional contribution of a musician or music industry figure from Northern Ireland. It will be the culmination of this year's Sound of Belfast festival, which will run from 2 - 11 November, and will be supported by Live Music Partner Blue Moon for a second year.

    The presentation will be followed by a live performance from Vivian with his current band Last In Line, at the Mandela Hall, Belfast, November 11.

    Vivian Campbell is one of the leading names in rock from Northern Ireland. His story is one of global success that began with Sweet Savage, a band considered to one of the most influential of the ‘New Wave of British Metal’, writing music that influenced the likes of Metallica, who went on to cover a Sweet Savage song.

    Vivian has since written, performed, toured and worked with some of the biggest names in rock including Thin Lizzy, DIO, Whitesnake, Riverdogs, and Lou Gramm (ex-foreigner). In 1992 he found a permanent home with British rock legends Def Leppard and this year he celebrates 25 years with the band.

    Vivian continues to write and perform on various other projects and will be bringing his current band Last In Line to the Mandela Hall for a special Legend Award performance.

    Previous recipients of the Oh Yeah Legends Award are:
    Terri Hooley (2008), Henry McCullough (2009), The Undertones (2010), Stiff Little Fingers (2011), Gary Moore (posthumous) (2012), Therapy? (2014), Divine Comedy (2015) and Ash (2016).

    Vivian had this to say about the award "I've been very fortunate that my life's work has also been my passion. It's an honour to be recognised for that, and especially so when that recognition comes from my fellow countrymen."

    Oh Yeah CEO Charlotte Dryden said: “ Vivian Campbell is a global rock name, he’s fully deserving of this award, rock has played a massive role in the story of music in NI and Vivian is one of the trail blazers. We’re delighted to welcome back Blue Moon as our Live Music Partner for what will no doubt be a rousing night for fans of Vivian and a brilliant end to the NI Music Prize as well as the closing night of the Sound of Belfast programme”.
