Andy Cooper – Live Show Performance At Nice N’ Sleazy’s.

End of last month I caught up with Long Beach Californian rapper, Andy Cooper at a live show in the atmospheric basement venue Nice’N Sleazy’s supported by local Rap /DJ/Beatboxing acts, Spee Six Nine, Big Taj, DJ Goodbrother and Red King. Readers can view the full batch of photos I captured of this night over on Gobophotography/Revel Rousers Facebook page, with music links and descriptions of each artist for your go-dig satisfaction and listening pleasure –

Andy Cooper took some time out of a current UK tour with Bristol-based DJ/Producers, The Allergies to play a solo Glasgow show, where he received an outstanding crowd response as beaming, interactive hip-hop lovers gathered to show support for the acts and revel in appreciation for Andy’s super fresh rapping talents. Big Taj & Spee Six Nine organised the event and laid down a superlative joint performance of insanely awesome Beatbox combined with dynamite, dynamic rap, as well as rapper, King Red laying down his ‘Subconscious’ EP material and announcing he has fresh material in the pipeline.

Rapper – King Red laid down his ‘Subconscious’ EP material with much gusto. Released on Player 2 Music.

I never seen a guy spring to life in such an animated way as what Andy did as soon as his hands gripped the mic and his feet hit the stage. He concisely and consistently demonstrates his razor-sharp rap flow every show, with a knack for triggering that, WoW! factor every time with his light speed, compact word delivery which always holds clarity for understanding, skillfully channeled through his tailored rapping technique, as well as an authentic purpose in what he actually raps about, fusing a nostalgic hip-hop feel to a positively fresh and funky approach.

Andy has most certainly found his place within, The Allergies fold as their aim is to reshape funky vintage sounds for the modern dance floor. They most certainly got the heart and soul that Andy achieves to deliver through his creative zeal and overall perspective.

In many senses, I am still discovering myself through the complex tapestry in which life continues to weave, gaining unique physical experience in order to aid the progression of my precious spirit, this will continue for the rest of my fated days and my understanding of who I am shall be determined through how I learn to react, act and adapt towards the circumstances I face. I do sincerely hope the span of this life is enough to fully come to terms with the potential of my unique existence, through deep-rooted understanding, compassion, and love, and that I may fully acknowledge the absolute full potential of my existence through the network of others. Thus far the core of my being has learned through unique experience and individual perspective that I am most certainly a creative soul who takes solace in the truth & liberty of artistic expression. Freedom lays behind the eyes within the evocative realm of one's imagination, transforming originality through individual perspective, this is when my art becomes yours. Inspiring, motivating different modes of expression to overall influence and shape a better world, to help elevate to a higher consciousness. We are part of the great web of life and in this way each and every one of us are interconnected, to create a major shift in consciousness. We must wholeheartedly start to believe in what can be created for the greater good of this world, in my view it is most certainly the power of thought and intention which connect us, no matter how near or how far. Being understood has always been of paramount importance to me, self-expression is something I have been aware of from a very young age. From my point of view, artistic expression has always been the most liberating and uniting mode. When I am not caught up in life's cogs I love to write poetry, short stories, and shoot photographs. I adore and feed off music, so I highly enjoy capturing the live music scene in the city of Glasgow, Scotland. I also enjoy writing for Uk Entertainments website, Louder than War, as well as run my own music blog www.Revel, Amalgamating my love of music, writing, as well as photographic expression (Music, Landscape, Street, Wedding), which gives me a great sense of creative release, therefore forging a strong sense of purpose in the way of documenting life's remarkable moments. I find working with creatives within the music industry is wholly inspiring even though at times it can be quite challenging, after all, the greatest realizations and lessons learned are born out of challenges. I figured, seeing as I have a platform for my music reviews, interviews and photography I thought it would be time to create a platform for my creative writing and poetry.....It takes courage to expose oneself through the intimacy of poetry, However, that is how we truly unite and grow in compassion and understanding of each other's true essence. I am a deep thinker, I understand the power of words and their meanings. I also understand how empowering artistic expression can be. There is a raw truth buried within each original idea combined with a power to help change the world. Artistic expression is forever transforming through interpretation, that is what I mean when I say "When My Art Becomes Yours" My philosophy is to understand more, in order to love more....... Love ~M~
