ON THE RADAR: Corbin (Spooky Black) at Birthdays, Dalston: 16/1/2015


This Friday, Corbin (or the artist formerly known as Spooky Black) is set perform his first ever UK show at Birthdays in Dalston. The 17 year old Internet Rap don will be joined by Falls and Little Cloud for the show, which sold out quicktime after a madness ensued when he announced the show recently on Twitter.

Corbin, who’s singing voice sounds more like that of a middle aged Black soul singer than it does of a teenage white suburban Minnesotan guy, has been hot news in the past few months after both his solo work, and music from his band The Stand4rd garnered shitloads of attention on social media and Soundcloud. His own brand of kinda-retro-kinda-modern electronic sexually tinged R&B seems to resonate with a significant young audience, primarily composed of a kinship of suburban white youth (tbh though we really don’t know what crowd to expect at this show). Corbin is new to touring, but based on this video taken from his recent FIRST EVER show in his hometown of St Paul Minnesota, we think we’re in for a very emosh experience:

The show is now officially sold out, but doors open at 19:00 if anyone wants to get down there early and try and haggle with the ticket touts. We’ll see you lot there.

The official after-party is being held at The Victoria in Dalston, with DJ sets from Corbin, Psymun, Blackfoot Phoenix, CKtrl, Siobhan Bell and Larry B. Tickets from £7, available on the door only.
