(All previously purchased unrefunded tickets are still valid)

We would like to appologise about the delay in getting this replacement show locked in! We have been working directly with 9th himself to make sure this happens as all the unfortunate mix ups before were out of both our and his control.

Having first broken through as the producer for the group Little Brother, alongside school friends Phonte & Big Pooh, this North Carolina native has cut his own path through the world of Hip-Hop. In the tradition of producers like DJ Premier, Just Blaze and Kanye West 9th Wonder has managed to build a bridge spanning both the commercial and underground scenes. Those that have come in search of his soul drenched sounds include Jay-Z, De La Soul, Destiny’s Chid, Erykah Badu, Mary J Blige, MOP & Murs. A list that exemplifies the huge cross appeal of this hugely talented producer.

To kick proceedings off we are screening the UK premier of the ‘The Wonder Year’ a documentary following a year in the life of
super producer 9th Wonder: CEO, NAACP ambassador, Duke University professor,and Grammy Award winning producer from his childhood home to late nights in the studio and everywhere in between and features a who’s who of Hip-Hop including: Drake, DJ Premier, DJ Green Lantern, J. Cole, Murs, Phonte, The Alchemist & more.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with 9th Wonder himself and then the fun really starts with a 2 hour DJ set from the man of the hour himself featuring a live PA by Rhapsody appearing in the UK for the very first time.
