Max Wheeler, who developed Charanga’s Hip Hop Coach (and, along with Alex Dalton from the East Sussex Music Service, Charanga Musical School’s Hip Hop Unit of Work), has just released an EP to great reviews in the Guardian and elsewhere.
Called ‘Anushka’ on Gilles Peterson’s Label Brownswood, Max produces, Victoria Port sings, and the tracks have a sound, to quote Max, “that combines Soul, House Music and the futuristic sounds of the UK bass scene”.
You can listen to a track here http://soundcloud.com/anushkauk/i-have-love-4-you. So far they have had radio support from 6Music, Rinse FM and 1xtra.
Max is leading on developing a new Urban Music programme, coming soon from Charanga.
