Dan Patlansky’s had a big year. In the 12 months since releasing his UK debut ‘Dear Silence Thieves’, the South African has trekked around the country (alone and with King King), supported Joe Satriani across Europe, expanded his touring band, and put out his strongest album yet.
At his first London show since December, he’s reaping the benefits. The venue’s bigger, with better sound. Added keyboards mean more textures to the music. And the light and shade of the new ‘IntroVertigo’ songs showcase not just his increasingly powerful vocals, but new-found nuances in his already dynamic playing style.

Nahko and Medicine for the People | Electric Ballroom | 21 January 2016
Music, believe Nahko and Medicine for the People, has the power to motivate, inspire, and change. And that’s exactly what it does during the musical collective’s uplifting two-hour show at Camden’s Electric Ballroom.
It’s a party from the off, as the already energised crowd welcome frontman Nahko Bear to the stage with a chorus of “Happy birthday” and set the mood for what turns out to be more celebration than gig. Backed by a five-piece band capable of metamorphosis from Jack Johnson surfer folk to jazzy hip-hop and Dave Matthews Band jams to classic reggae, the singer launches into joyous renditions of their biggest songs.
