Nu-Soul Magazine and Soul Union are proud to present another evening of ecletic soul fusion with Strictly Social on Wednesday June 17, 2009.
Strictly Social is the physical embodiment of Nu-Soul Magazine, allowing music lovers to witness the convergence of soul and electronica through our carefully selected monthly showcase of cutting edge artists and DJs.
Featuring live Performances from:
A confident blend of electronica, soul, and hip-hop, the prolific Peter Hadar has released two well-received full lengths and one EP through his own Cool Weirdo label in just two short years. Honing his skills by singing backup for artists such as Eric Roberson and Carl Thomas, Hadar has gone on to cement his status as one of the soul scene's most dynamic and electrifying performers. Peter has been heralded by magazines and websites such as Vibe.com, Essence, Urb, and Nu-Soul as the new face of modern R&B.
Southern California's soulful singer-songwriter Havana has a lot in common with the flava-filled Caribbean island's fresh liberation. On her 2005 debut she worked with an assortment of talented producers such as Nicolay, Symbolic One and Waajeed selling an impressive 18,000 units (physical & digital) to date. Her upcoming new album Entervention, which features production by producers like Trackademicks, GB (Sound in Color), Brook D'Leau (J*Davey) and Beat$treets, celebrates the coming to grips of Havana's hard upbringing with her life, using music to express her experiences and family issues, but never forgetting to have fun along the way.
MIZ METRO (Unlimited Listening session and Performance)
Miz Metro has graced over 60 stages from New York to London, engaging audiences with her quirky stage presence and well crafted songs. "Her powerful, controlled voice blends with and rises above the music to bring her message of social change," explains ClubPlanet.com. With her frank lyrics and unconventional soulful pop sound Miz Metro is often compared to Lily Allen, Fiona Apple, Amy Winehouse and Gwen Stefani. Influenced by these artists along with Lauren Hill, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Santogold and many others, she draws influence in music ranging from ragtime to hip hop.
