Craig David Presents TS5
Craig David Presents TS5
Platinum album-selling and chart-topping international superstar Craig David presents TS5.
TS5 started out as the most exclusive pre-party in Miami hosted by Craig at his penthouse home, Tower Suite 5. Craig’s sets combine massive old skool anthems from R&B to Swing beat, and from Garage to Bashment, into current chart topping House hits. And with Craig’s ability to sing, MC and work the crowd while DJing simultaneously, TS5 has its USP.
Craig is no stranger to the DJ life. Before the success of his solo career, Craig started out as a DJ working the UK club circuit; he then went on to sell over 15 million albums as an artist, enjoying 14 Top 10 hits and achieving multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries.
After posting exclusive sets on Soundcloud garnering thousands of listens every week, TS5’s popularity quickly hit the UK, and Craig now brings the show to Capital Xtra – the brand new dance and urban station from the nation’s biggest commercial radio network - every Friday night. The show gives listeners an hour window into the exclusive TS5 party played live from Miami.
Following a 5 dates sell out Australia tour, in October 2015, TS5 premiered on the number 1 radio station in the country, Nova FM. It is played out at 10pm every Saturday night throughout the country. As well as Australia and the UK, TS5 is also broadcast on the biggest Urban station in New Zealand, Mai FM.
Since 2013, Craig has built the TS5 brand from house party, to radio show to sell out live concert. His unique brand of DJ-ing, MC-ing, mixing and singing live, with sets in the biggest clubs as far and wide as France, Italy, Morocco, Moscow, South Korea, Dubai and Beijing to name a few; have attracted fans in their thousands.
In under a year, Craig’s TS5 live nights became the most sought after in the UK’s capital city. Tickets to the first TS5 headline show at Oslo Hackney in London in July 2015, sold out in minutes, followed swiftly by a second show at Shapes Hackney in October, which sold out even quicker. Craig David’s TS5 at Koko in London’s Camden in March 2016 also followed suit selling out in a record time, of less than 10 minutes. While his headline TS5 show at the prestigious Brixton Academy sold 5000 tickets in under 3 minutes.
Over the course of summer 2016, TS5 continues to go from strength to strength. With a record breaking 25,000 people packing out the Sonic Stage at Glastonbury, the largest crowd the stage has ever seen in the history of the landmark festival, Craig David’s TS5 continues to grow. Craig has since done the same at Bestival, Wireless, Common People plus an 8 week TS5 Residency at Ibiza Rocks. The TS5 brand shows no signs of slowing down.
Back To Life
Back To Life
Launched in Oct 2015 at Louie & Chan in the Lower East Side of NYC, Back to Life is the coming together of Khalil, Pauli and Move Forward Music. The plan was simply to bring a slice of London 's nightlife to New York City. Playing the dopest selection of Garage, Grime, Hip Hop, RnB, Broken Beat, House, UK Funky, Soul and more, Khalil and Pauli Lovejoy have been joined by guests such as Just Blaze, Dj Moma, Dj Spinna, Idris Elba, Kindness, Donae'o & Jasmine Solano amongst others. On top of the monthly party, Back To Life have put on shows with DJ EZ at Output, Little Simz at Rough Trade and played at The Guggenheim Museum, Everyday People and Le Bain.

Khalil is one quarter of and co-founder of London's Livin' Proof, which Noisey dubbed "London's best hip-hop party", and where the foggy city's debut performances of the likes of A$AP Rocky and others have gone down. The vibes at Livin' Proof, which Hudson Mohawke called "quite an amazing party...London's best", promptedDanny Brown to offer "performing on the Livin' Proof stage was one of the happiest moments of my life".

Fellow Brooklyn based Londoner Pauli Lovejoy is a solo artist and acclaimed drummer who recently released his debut music video i Don't Care as premiered on Noisey. He's worked with the likes of Jamie xx & FKA Twigsand toured with Kindness and Damon Albarn. He is a musical force in his own right.
