Majid Jordan announce Auckland show

Best known for featuring on Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, Toronto R&B duo MAJID JORDAN have announced they’ll bring their catchy, slick beats and serious swagger to the stages of Australia and New Zealand this July armed with their retro-futuristic album “The Space Between”.

Tickets go on sale at 10am Tuesday, March 13.

My Live Nation members can be among the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale beginning 10amFriday, March 9.

Consisting of Majid Al Maskati and Jordan Ullman, the duo formed during college and quickly began collaborating in basement and dorm room studios, from which they’d rarely emerge. Their abilities shone through when the duo co-wrote and produced Drake’s No.1 track “Hold On, We’re Going Home” in 2013, drawing them into the spotlight. Followed up by their self-titled debut album in early 2016, the boys cracked the top 10 on the R&B charts bringing critical and commercial success, launching them on their first-ever tour across Canada and the U.S.

Majid Jordan’s minimal yet soulful sound stands on its own, drawing listeners in with catchy, slick beats and Majid’s tender croon. Their sophomore album “The Space Between”, released late 2017, set the duo set off on a world tour taking in North America and Europe for more than 40 dates. Australia and New Zealand fans will be the next to experience their dance-flavoured, dreamy sounds as they expand their world tour through Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions.
