The Allergies Live
After breaking onto the scene with a Mixmag ‘Tune of the Month’, The Allergies (DJ Moneyshot and Rackabeat) continued in their mission to bring re-fuelled funk and feel good hip-hop to the masses.
The three LPs that followed on Brighton’s Jalapeno Records, were sonic steps forward for the pair winning them die-hard fans and BBC 6 Music ‘Album of the Day’ and ‘Album of the Year’ awards along the way.
With each successive release they found strength in numbers, with the duo forming a crack team of vocalists, rappers, and musicians around them, fleshing out their sound. Andy Cooper, of underground LA rap legends Ugly Duckling, became their powerhouse front man. Soul-sensation Marietta Smith, the deadly diva. And Dub FX’s sax star Mr. Woodnote, their master of the badass brass. This unit, formed in the studio, then took to the stage, becoming The Allergies live band.
What followed were barnstorming festival sets and sell out shows at the world famous Jazz Cafe in London. Album number four, Say the Word", is set for release summer 2020 hopefully just in time for Nibley.
So head over to the Renishaw, for the now infamous post-headliner slot and get ready to move to some funky, soulful, latin, hip-hop, floor filling, killer beats. Like their 2018 album, they might just "steal the show".
