KOJEY RADICAL

+ SPECIAL GUESTS

7PM-10PM : £10 ADV (14+)

Kojey Radical is a London based poet, musician and mixed media visual artist.

He is also Creative Director of the PUSHCRAYONS collective/network & Art Director of contemporary menswear brand Chelsea Bravo. As an artist Kojey is widely credited for his explosive live shows and subversive storytelling ability, often referred to as a visionary and pioneer of the arts.

Beginning as a contemporary artist Kojey moved through the arts with increasing curiosity and defiant will to never be confined to one art form. From as young as 9 years old Kojey chose to see every form of creative expression as one art form; allowing each one to become a new language for him to communicate through.

After releasing his debut EP Dear Daisy: Opium in June 2014 Kojey quickly became a name to look out for, selling out his first headline show twice due to popular demand. The highly anticipated sophomore project came in the shape of the ‘23 Winters’ release in February 2016, with the raw and honest 10 track EP exploring the heartfelt journey of a young Kojey. Featuring his father narrating throughout the entire project in an open and candid manner, collaborations also come in the shape of Tom Grennan, Ray BLK, Bobii Lewis and frequent collaborator Zulu.

GALLONS is the latest project to come from the enigmatic poet and wordsmith; produced by Greatness Jones (Giggs, Avelino, Scorcher) with supporting Creative Direction from Kojey and Craig Most Popular Human. The visual, premiered by Dazed and directed by long time collaborators THE REST, see’s Kojey adorned in black from skin to garment moving anxiously through a dystopian portrait of inner city London.

Kojey has worked with partners including the Tate as part of their Late at the Tate series, Adidas, Dr Martens and The London College of Fashion. Kojey’s live plot has seen him supporting Young Fathers on their European tour, and Ghostface Killah at the Southbank, as well as boasting his own sold out Jazz Café show in September. He took part in his second Boiler Room show in October in the shape of exclusively curated spoken word event; ‘In Appreciation of Lyricism’ alongside the actor and poet Saul Williams.

His approach and unorthodox style has earned him the attention of Dazed, i-D, HYPEBEAST, Clash Magazine, Notion, The Fader, Wonderland, The405, NOISEY, The Source and support from BBC 1Xtra, Mary Anne Hobbs and Gilles Peterson to name but a few, cementing Kojey’s position as a voice of a young generation.
