Greentea Peng + Lord Apex

Thursday 16th June

Experience the healing vibrations of this one-of-a-kind neo-soul singer-songwriter Greentea Peng.

 

Peng does things her own way, writing lyrics that range from the spiritual to the overtly political, and recording her debut album MAN MADE tuned to a frequency of 432 Hz instead of the standard 440 – ‘out of tune with the industry and in tune with the universe,’ she says.

She began making MAN MADE shortly after the death of her stepfather Jim, who Peng calls ‘my biggest musical mentor and supporter’.

Of the record, she says: ‘It’s music for your heart, and not your mind, even though it is thought provoking at times. I wanted it to be an offering of healing, a provocation of spirit soul, not more angst.’

Her ambition certainly landed – MAN MADE’s release in the summer of 2021 won over listeners across the globe.

Critics were also impresed, with Clash describing it as ‘the sound of a spirit operating in a totally free manner’.

Hailing from White City, west London, rapper Lord Apex (aka Sensei, Yardie Miyagi, or AP) has become an underground favourite thanks to his compellingly laid-back style.

His early offerings were influenced by his favourite producer/rappers: J Dilla, Madlib and MF DOOM, and Apex was recently chosen to support Yasiin Bey and Freddie Gibbs on their European tours.

In 2021 Apex dropped the third instalment of his popular Smoke Sessions series on Daupe, with features from Smoke DZA, Wiki and Maverick Sabre.
