Role: Musical Director / Programmer
I was brought in to MD (Musical Direct) the live show for Birmingham based rappers Lotto Boyzz who released their debut collaborative Mix-Tape, ‘2 Paths. 1 Dream’ under the name A.S.H & Lucas.
For this project I didn’t play, I put a 4-piece band together (drums, bass, keys, guitar). As most of the songs were covers, getting stems for the programming was hard so I had to build stems from scratch. I created live arrangements for the songs and then rehearsed the band. Once the band was ready I brought the Lotto Boyz in and did a production rehearsal with them.
I put the set list together and helped the Lotto Boyzz pick what songs to perform live, from the Mix-Tape and the order that they would come in to create an energetic, free-flowing set.
