Cable Street Collective - The Best of Times
Cable Street Collective – The Best of Times

Formed in 2012 at the same London open mic night that produced Denai Moore, Cable Street Collective combine catchy tunes with dance-inspired beats to create music that mixes African influences (two of the group grew up in Swaziland and Malawi) with UK funky house and a whole host of other sounds from in and around their home bases in East London and Brixton.

Tom Robinson of BBC 6Music and BBC Introducing says their music “grooves like a bastard.” XFM’s new music guru John Kennedy says: “Their music is guaranteed to bring the sunshine, whatever the weather.”

The band have enjoyed airtime on XFM and played at a series of high profile festivals including Bestival, the Isle of Wight Festival, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown Fair and the Lake of Stars Festival in Malawi.

Their debut EP ‘The Best of Times’ is available on iTunes, Spotify and as a physical release. ‘Can’t Take Me Under’ is the lead track and will be released as a single on February 16th 2015.

Cable Street Collective are: Dave, Rowan, Tristan, Ash, Fiona and Alex.
