Where to go now: G-SHOCK and CODE+CULTURE

G-SHOCK and CODE+CULTURE return with the second Session to be hosted live in the Carnaby flagship store.

Celebrating the journeys of artists and creatives who have defied the odds to become outstanding in their field, this Session we introduce a special double header with the multi-talented producer and artist AYO BEATZ alongside Afrobeat’s hottest property right now, PRETTYBOY D-O.

Chosen for their talent as well as their ‘Never Give Up’ ethos, SESSIONS guests will deliver unique and exclusive live performances for fans and audiences, as well as inspiring insights into how they pushed through external forces and reached their goals.

As the creative and cultural industries face increasingly challenging times, the aim is that the SESSIONS go some way to help young, diverse creatives of all disciplines find inspiration and re- connect with their unbreakable spirit.

AYO BEATZ: Beat Deconstruction & Exclusive Live Performance.

Having worked with the likes of Young M.A, Krept & Konan, Wes Nelson, KSI, Idris Elba, Chip, and Fredo to name a few, acclaimed producer and rapper Ayo Beatz is one of the hardest working talents in the UK black music scene.

For this special edition Session Ayo takes us behind some of his most successful productions, in a live beat deconstruction, including his UK hit “See Nobody” by Wes Nelson and Hardy Caprio. Followed by an exclusive performance of his new single.

PRETTY BOY D-O – Exclusive Live Performance.

Having already collaborated with Davido, BurnaBoy and IAMDDB and with support from The Fader, Complex and Notion to name a few, PRETTYBOY D-O is tipped to be Nigeria’s next major export.

However, he is no stranger to the #NeverGiveUp approach, having dropped out of his Pre-Med university course to focus on music. D-O now represents the new generation of Nigerian youth- culture, the outlaw, the rebel with a cause, fighting for a generation of African Youth to feel free to express themselves and tell their own stories.

As a G-Shock Sessions exclusive, PRETTYBOY D-O will be performing tracks from his latest release, due out in September 2021.
