Easter Sunday saw the Crew Love European tour arrive at Studio 338 in North Greenwich, London. Having spent four days on the road on a double decker bus - equipped with a lounge, cinema and beds - the team of promoters and artists could boast visitations to Manchester, Paris, Amsterdam and London.
So came the conclusion of this musical road trip. With a lineup that showcased the finest artists affiliated with the American based label, it was not to be missed. Acts included Soul Clap, Pillow Talk, Tanner Ross, Nick Monaco, Navid Izadi, No Regular Play, Wolf + Lamb and Slow Hands. With a mix of live artists and DJ’s playing material fresh to the UK scene, the venue soon reached it's full capacity, creating an incredible climax to both the Easter weekend and the four day tour.
About To Blow caught up with Charlie and Eli from Soul Clap at the event to ask about their time on the road in Europe;
‘We’re in London and the party is jumping! You should see it down there, it’s like a sea of people, it’s crazy!’ ‘I think this is the best tour we’ve ever done, you’re just on a bus with your homies, you skip all the BS with airports and just get on the bus. I love going to sleep with that rumble!’ ‘It’s been a while since we’ve been in Europe and I feel refreshed, it’s dope! The fans are really supportive. It’s great to be back and to see people enjoying our new sounds’.
With Soul Clap & Parliaments George Clinton gearing up for a collaborative release in addition to the first official Crew Love album set for production later this year, expect to hear a lot more from the collective as they stage shows across a succession of Festival dates this summer.
