CM Tutor Named in Guardian Band Of The Week
Tony Russell, course leader for CM's Music Space Academy, and his band KAS-tro have been featured in the Guardian this week.
KAS-tro's other member, drummer Alvin Lee Ryan, also spent time tutoring young students on the Music Space Academy, which offers free instrument tuition for 13-19 year-olds in Tower Hamlets.
The duo have been working together on various community music projects over the last few years and began collaborating on their own music soon after.
The resulting sound is a deep and immersive blend of Hip-Hop, electronica and moody ambient textures.
The excellent "Self-Titled" EP was mastered by award-winning engineer Mandy Parnell (Bjork, Aphex Twin, Brian Eno) and also features south London wordsmith Che Lingo on the title track.
It is due for release via Kastro's Kitchen on 28th March.
