THE WRIGHT BROTHERS (THE REVIEW)


By Michael Bademosi



‘The Wright Brothers’

"A story of friendship, laughter and love, join Samantha on a journey to find a date for her sister’s wedding, she’s not been interested in meeting anyone since her last relationship ended, but with only 3 weeks till the wedding she has to find a date! Enter 3 brothers with very different characteristics, money; looks and personality, which one will win her over!"
.
Wow where do I even start, The Wright Brothers did EVERYTHING (and see I put 'everything' in capitals) that the the packaging said it would do, AND MORE. In terms of delivering realism, quality and attention to detail within a theatre production of its kind. I honestly went in to the theatre expecting it to be good already because I am already aware of how good of writers and directors Tyrone-Lee Davis and Kieran Shekoni are, from working with them on House Party UK. But then I also expected it to be another cliche London type of romance that tries to emulate a Tyler Perry film but ends in an 'Urban London Way' somebody getting shot or stabbed. Within the first 5 minutes I knew I had not come to watch a London version of a Tyler Perry film on stage, but I had come to see something great.

For me the thing I enjoyed the most about the production was the level of characterization, it was so well done you could tell which kind of person each character was without them giving anything away. As soon as I saw the wright brothers I began to write notes on my observations about how they were. The first brother that caught my attention was 'Michael Wright' (Tyrone Lee-Davis) the smart book worm, the reject out of the brothers and the person oblivious to image and life outside of education, it seemed like he was the youngest brother, apart from that he was very funny even when he wasn't trying to be and this really allowed the audience to warm to him. The second brother that caught my attention was 'Dean Wright' (Samuel Akinpelu) dressed in pricey branded attire, very confident with a cockney accent and an erratic gestures that suggested he was the one with the money and ego on top of that his P.A/Sidekick 'Marcus' (Kieron Langman) he always asked to do things, made him look even more important. The last brother that caught my attention was 'Ricardo Wright' (Kieran Shekoni) out of all the brothers he was the only one that didn't seem like he had insecurities within himself in the way he behaved. He was very suave and seemed like he was the ladies man and if this was a competition between the brothers he was the one to beat.

As the scenes progress the story develops and we go to find out that 'Samantha Thornton' (Gerri Hinds) is the girl the wright brothers are in this 'love' square with, we see scenes where she meets up with Ricardo, bumps into Michael and is pestered by Dean. It gets to a point where you think there is going to be a climax that will almost give a hint or leak what direction the play is going. The first half was so good I could not leave my seat it had me in that much excitement I started asking myself questions and trying to predict what would happen in the second half. "Will there be any emotional Or serious scenes of betrayal or conflict? Will the brothers end up falling out with each other? Will they fight? Who is going to get Samantha in the end?Will they end up with totally different girls than the 1st half suggested?
Will it end in total drama or will it be a happy ending?"

At some points I felt like It was a spoken word event and the actors were these poets because some of the reality in the lines and the way the lines were delivered were almost poetic and had the crowd going wild giving standing ovations at certain parts, and you could tell most of the crowd could relate and it triggered a switch turning on that light in their room of memories. The point that stood out for me was when Samantha's friend 'Shaney' (Elisha Myton) is telling Dean Wright about himself, about how he is insecure at that point all the females in the crowd were cheering and some were shouting and hollering things like "You go girl". As the play progressed we began to learn more about the characters and you felt part of their journey, Out of all the characters the audience, especially the females warmed to Michael the most and as the play went on he began to come out of his shell and became to look like the likely candidate for Samantha (See what i done there Candi-date LOL). Anyway as I sat in my seat waiting for what I thought would happen to take place, The brother I thought was most likely to go out with Samantha (Ricardo) ends up being told by Samantha he is just a friend to her and on top of that Ricardo talks about his love for 'Jasmine' (Sade Stewart). Within one scene the play went in a different direction to what I thought it was going!

I feel like I'm rambling on now but it shows how much I want to share with you and how much I enjoyed it, let me rap it up slowly but nice lol so yeah as the play drew near to the end everything started to make sense to me and the avenues of which the play and characters would end up on became so clear. Dean and Ricardo find out they both know Samantha and Dean becomes nice unlike before where he would insult her and forget his respect for women. The moment Michael grasped Samantha and finally escaped from his shell was when he recited his poem he wrote about her, the words did not only grasp Samantha but everybody in the crowd it got a good 20 seconds of applause it was like seeing your little brother grow up to win a trophy for the football team. The romance blossomed in a scene between Ricardo and Jasmine this scene was one of the best in terms of the suspense and the reality you could tell there was a lot of tension and they really wanted each other. One of my best scenes I could relate lol.

So here's how it goes.....we see Samantha with Michael as her date as her sisters wedding. We also witnessed the icebreaker between Ricardo and Jasmine so that leaves an idea of how the play will end, but I was telling myself theres going to be another surprise this is not a predictable play! The lights go off and there's silence....I'm telling myself "ahh I hope it aint finished I wanna find out who gets who man dont do this to me!! it cant end like THIS!!" But out comes the narrator (Davina Cole) and she goes on to say "lets see how they are doing now" (At this point I was standing up like i was watching a penalty shoot out lool I was too into it). We see that Ricardo and Jasmine are together, Michael gets Samantha In the end and the shock of the play for me was Dean and who he ended up being with, Shanay, Samanthas friend who disliked dean so much you would never think they would get together.

Seriously I could go on for hours about the story, but there are times you come across a piece of art that changes your view on certain situations you have been through. Everything The Wright Brothers represents ticks all the boxes for what you call a Romantic Comedy. It had me laughing from start to finish, every single person could relate to the characters and the story and it had a very good message behind it, it literally felt like you was watching film on stage and their world was at arms reach, the acting was so on point and the actors and actresses in the cast all contributed to the execution of the play. This play proves attention to detail is key in art and its the small things that count, all the small things in the play that wouldn't normally get noticed made this play better than many I have seen like the use of the narrator and the crowd interaction. Like the comedy club scene when 'Snapz The Comedian' (Michael Carpenter) made a cameo role and left the crowd in stitches. People that know me know I speak my mind and I can honestly say The Wright Brothers is one of the best theatre productions I have seen in a long time, it is just real.

This is definatly one to look out for I hope it gets commissioned/ funded and goes on tour because ALOT of people NEEEEED this in there life no matter who you are. I actually have NOTHING bad to say about it...actually I think I should be in the next 1 LOL. But On A serious note, to Tyrone Lee Davis, Kieran Shekoni, The Cast and Opus Dreams well done 5/5, I'm looking forward to what the future holds.

Tinyman 4 moods: Review by Zulunatic Badejo


This EP shows a different side of Tinyman to the one we saw in the Nameless EP which he released earlier this year. "4 Moods" is a harsh musical introduction into the mind of this bipolar character created by artist Tinyman. Intelligently juxtaposing lyrical content with the instrumentals to create a mix of emotions for the audience to take in, I believe that artist Tinyman has succeeded not only in presenting a bipolar character to the audience but has been able to create what I would call a bipolar EP.  

In the Intro poem, Ray Jonez attempts to narrate these four moods using binary oppositions "Relevant to the chest slightly centre left, deep, but still beating above the skin". Successfully creating a tension in the listener. Explaining and describing how these four moods, without giving them names, are so different and yet come together to create this one complete person.
Using a beat from the genre Liquid (a fusion of Drum and Base and Jungle) in the first track Nameless, Tinyman presents one part of this character. The exploration of paranoia as a result of drug abuse is illustrated clearly. Lyrically he shows how confused this person is but using the effects of the drugs as an excuse. The title of the track being the same as his last EP raises questions as to whether or not this character he is telling us about is in fact himself.  

In the next track Maybe Today, starts with a message from his girlfriend telling him that their relationship is over as she had caught him cheating but also confessing a secret of her own. Throughout the track he blames her for this problem but in the first verse he starts out suicidal but in the second verse his tone changes and suggests that maybe she should consider suicide and in the third verse he seems to come to a conclusion that murder would appease him more with a very graphic description of deaths which he thinks would suit her. Although he cheated the track concentrates on the betrayal he felt and rather than showing any form of remorse for his actions. 

My personal favourite is Cupids Backlash. Describes a heartless man. Describing his lack of understanding of love and explaining his joys and how he has also had his fair share of Cupids pain. Unique lack of belief/faith in relationships is not a concept that is commonly explored amongst artists in this way.
Positivity breeds happiness as the main phrase repeated in the chorus would make you believe that Building Bridges would be a more positive song. But even with this positive message I found that something was still pushing me towards a negative dragging feeling and I realise that the beat completely juxtaposes the lyrics and concept. The beat is slow, dreary and generally not a happy sounding beat which I thought was once again a brilliant way of subliminally making the listener connect with these 4 separate moods at the same time. Once again I believe Tinyman also had little subliminal links to himself in this song, with references to acting and acting practitioners.
The 4 Moods EP should be listened to with an open mind and readiness to accept a different side of this artist. His dedication to exploring new things and bravery for trying them is commendable. On the whole I think it's a very interesting EP and I'd like to see where Tinyman takes us next.

Adot Vs Tboy : The Brotherhood



Upshot TV brings together two of the funniest UK African Comics, Adot Comedian and Tboy (aka Don't Jealous Me) to present the long awaited collaboration.... Adot vs Tboy: The Brotherhood.

When two brothers are constantly at each other's throat; their uncle comes up with plan which will make the two brothers settle their dispute once and for all.
In a Street Fighter style the two relatives battle it out to identify who will be the winner. However, as the fight develops, they realise that there is a bigger threat.

1

I Popped a bottle to the good life,
Said kay serah to the hood life
And au revoir to the girls that I had from my past life
Fully focused got my mind right, got a forward motion
No helter skelter, roller coasting, got to ghosting
Forget being popular, roller motion
It was time to settle down, no proposing 
to my new life I raised a toast an had a motive
Put loose girls on hold....set a target man and truth be told,
I found a girl that was 70 30, personality with looks straight worthy
And a mind so strong... So strong she bothered me
Her urge to give it all encouraged me 
So gettin with this girl was a must
I didn't know If it was love or lust... trust

Pre Chorus

Chorus
We rise up but we keep on falling
My deep thoughts make my mind go touring, put my all in


Right now this is 70 30
Right now this is 70 30

I told her I put a hundred percent
But ur share just don't make sence I mean it don't make sence coz...
Right now this is 70 30
Right now this is 70 30


2

You know them ones where you try hard to show love
Them ones were uve been puttin work for so long
And your emotions got u feeling like ur on drugs
Paranoid and in a state of mind that's so wrong
Messed up part of me just lusted Part of me saw the only girl I trusted
Ahhh in the beginning she wanted love and I shared
Now she gwarn like she don't care
6 months gone now kept a low profile just for my girls sake
Man I made a great sacrifice that didn't benefit my life more like a mistake, 
I started doubting, Its like my pain in her eyes was arousing
On some talk about "let's av a child" ting.....PAUSE
That's when my mind went blank I dam nearly had a heart attack


Pre

Chorus
We rise up but we keep on falling
My deep thoughts make my mind go touring, put my all in  
Right now this is 70 30
Right now this is 70 30

But ur share just don't make sence I mean it don't make sence coz...
Right now this is 70 30

You're beautiful lovely and ur sex is dope
But its like I'm walking eggshells and a tightrope
These days your angry most of the time coz ur frustrated and u can't cope 
Ahh a relationships meant to be 50/50 cut even in the middle like malcolm missy
Right now your love drunk n I'm tipsy, Its like we aint fitted 59...50
Urghh Ur talented and ur love is dope But its like I'm cheating movin silent scope
Planned Out a new era made mental notes
Melanie said keep the 1s u call ur family close
True stories it eased my stress Felt Like i had a case to rest
So I told my girl if there aint no trust
Then bottom line there can't be no us 

Pre

Chorus

We rise up but we keep on falling,
My deep thoughts make my mind go touring,put my all in

If you saw, with your own two eyes, the people slaughtered mercilessly for the colour of their skin (S)

It would have even hurt the soul and pride of blind coloured man....from within...........some call it racism but I call it ignorance (M)

Ignorance of man, is the worlds biggest killer, forget cigarettes, hearts attacks, don’t blame it on the alcohol, blame it on who’s selling it (S)

MEET THE CONTROLLERS

THE CONTROLLERS ARE A MUSIC PRODUCTION DUO, INCLUDING MYSELF AN MY VERY GOOD PAL AMOUR THE BIG BOSS HAIDER HES DOWN THERE LOOK!! LOL


ABOUT THE CONTROLLERS

The Controllers are no ordinary set of record producer’s. Unlike the many clich├ęd testimonies heard everyday, they really do compose in all genres, from the organic 1950’s do-wop era to yesterday’s heavily synthesized number one. Who would have thought that two individuals, living near opposite lives would collaborate on a life changing experience in 2007 by the single element that got them started, a love for music.

Raised in a home that appreciated world music, Amour began to realise the importance of music in society and began playing the Piano at a young age. By 14, he was a classically trained pianist, yet he chose to pause developing his playing further in order to start his newly found skill of composing. Fast-forwarding a few years, he was introduced to many new genres and styles of music, thus increasing his knowledge of composition, production and engineering skills to suit each one.

Growing up around garage and lyrical rap unlike Amour was Michael’s way of understanding music. Somewhat moving on from his upbringing with an influential urban scene, Michael began accomplishing what can be only known as passion for all types of music, slowly gathering enough knowledge to understand the subtle differences around him. Without being formally taught how to play an instrument, Michael began using his skills to understand instrumentation, which now leads him to pick up any western instrument and play ideas on, one after the other.

The Controllers do not have a set of end-all-be-all equipment. Having skills to figure out equipment in minutes, they can accommodate a vast range of studios, from a lo-fi 4-track basement studio to a fully blown Pro Tools system. This allows them to work with artists that prefer to use a set DAW or method, while still retaining their signature sound.

INTERVIEW WITH SHYTWEETS ABOUT NAMELESS EP

HERES ANOTHER INTERVIEW ABOUT MY EP NAMELESS WITH @shytweets





Hi Mr Tinyman, thanks for taking the time out to answer some questions. Getting the cliche music questions out of the way, when did you start doing music?
I started MCing in the garage days/early 2000's but it was nothing serious. Everybody wanted to be like So Solid Crew (laughs) but I say I started to take Rap seriously from 2004/05.

Why 'Nameless'?
There are so many reasons why! The E.P is called nameless because I made a song called nameless and at the time I couldnt think of a name so I said "ah let me just call it nameless."

As time went by the true meaning of the title made sense. A lot of people were about to hear me do something they didn't expect me to do as people knew me as a host in raves so to them and those who never knew I could rap or make this kind of music, I was 'nameless'. I stripped away my persona and became neutral and spoke 100% truth. 

You seem to have a neo-soul kind of vibe to your music. What and who would you say are your influences?
At the time of making the E.P I was going through a lot and when I say a lot, I mean good and bad (Laughs). It had a positive effect on me. I was still trying to find my sound and my identity musically for self therapy and all I wanted to do was think out of the box and be different to your average South London Rapper from a council estate. I would listen to many neo soul artists but Eric Roberson, Geno Young, Jill Scott, Foreign Exchange and Erykah Badu. Their music made me wonder off into another zone of happiness no matter what emotion the song portrayed because they represented artistic freedom and realness so I took inspiration from their lyrical freedom and what they talked about. It took me 2 years to find my sound and they contributed to it.

My favourite track of yours has to be D.N.D. What was the concept behind it?
Do Not Disturb hmmm..(thinks) The concept behind the track a story about one of my friends with an obsessive ex girlfriend and some other experiences that I have witnessed that influenced that song. Its also the general concept of 'Do Not Disturb', wanting to leave the past behind and pushing what is acting as a barrier in your present aside. Like imagine you know in your heart your destined for greatness or success? No matter what it is your doing, you know what you want but people that are acting as barriers in what ever way have to be told that's what is behind 'Do Not Disturb.' (smiles)

Any future projects in the works?
I have already started working on a new album/EP. I've already got a few songs recorded and written. It will be the same vibe in terms of concepts and lyrics but more experimental in terms of production and collaborations I've also got the DND video and a few other songs coming soon once uni is out the way for the year. (sighs and laughs)
