From Southern Hospitality, the people who bring you both the legendary Hip Hop Karaoke and the monthly madness that is Players Ball, Rated R is a night of classic R&B and future anthems. Playing everything great in R&B and soul right now and from the past few decades – think Janet Jackson to Mary J. Blige to Pharell to Miguel to Ty Dolla $ign to Eric Bellinger and all dancefloor heavy grooves in-between, with a sprinkling of old-school rap jams.
Rob Pursey, co-founder of Southern Hospitality, is the man who can always be found behind the turntables at Hip Hop Karaoke during their weekly road-blocked event and DJing all the major UK festivals. Not to mention being promoter and DJ for Players Ball, which has become renowned throughout the city for its incredible party vibes. Rob’s knowledge and love of R&B and rap music is second to none and when not doing mixes and collaborations with the likes of Noisey, FACT, Dummy and more, he is a showcasing artist at SXSW, where he also runs an official stage.
Melody Kane is one of the most in-demand DJs anywhere right now, and when she’s not on tour as DJ for the future of British music like Meridian Dan, Misha B, Stylo G etc. she can be found tearing up clubs up and down the country. An amazing DJ, and one of our favourite people, Melody is also official DJ for SBTV. Nike and her legendary mixes have featured many times on BBC Radio 1Xtra, and has represented UK music and herself around the world. Her resume simply grows by the day and we ‘re excited to have her at Rated R.
