California’s Anderson .Paak is an emphatic breath of fresh air in the hip-hop game. Shortly after his prominent appearances on Dr. Dre’s comeback album Compton: The Soundtrack, .Paak has just released his energy-filled, charismatic new album â€˜Malibuâ€™. Sounding like a refreshed blend of Miguel and Kendrick Lamar, .Paak’s flow and lyrical charm is impossible not to love and on February 25th, BBC Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Semtex will welcome Cali’s young prince to XOYO in East London. Previous Arrival nights with Tink, Migos, Ty Dolla $ign, Pusha T, Joey Bada$$, etc have all sold out, so it was no surprise that this London show also sold out so quickly.
Anderson .Paak will then perform a very special headline date at Manchesterâ€™s Ruby Lounge on 26th February. With support from his band The Free Nationals expect a night full of soul, jazz, hip-hop, electronic funk, and r&b.
