See Things Differently
OK, so as I write this the biggest storm I’ve ever seen since….well, Glastonbury 2005, is crashing over my head, so I guess it’s gonna be a very wet next 5 days. I’m there as crew man for an artiste called Gipsy.cz. Gipsy is a Romany gipsy from Czech Republic who sings Hip Hop rhythms and beats, backed with traditional Gipsy instruments like accordion, violin and bass. He is available on iTunes, Napster & eMusic via a deal with The Orchard. This means that, despite his label not releasing his physical album (Romano Hip Hop) in the UK, fans who see him at Glastonbury, Bestival and the recent Pulse Festival, can access and buy his music. It’s a great example of how digital distributors such as The Orchard can offer International labels global sales channels at a very low cost.

Gipsy.cz is appearing on the Pussy Parlure stage on Sunday night, 10:45am. I’ll be there in my hip hop wellies.
