Kat Brown Sugar: Keeping It Sweet
In between spinning turntables at Dj gigs [her most recent being a charity event to raise money for Action Hunger at Cottonopolis] and multiple radio shows [Reform Radio, Legacy 90.1, Unity Radio and MCR Live], this 25 year old has curated a tasteful collection of music in her latest mixtape. It hit the stage at the Outlook Festival, with shoutouts from Manchester's modern day legends Children of Zeus. The three track mixtape also features an array of emerging Manchester talents including rapper Abnormal Sleepz, fellow MC Ceeow of A Broken Camarilla, guitarist of Jack Duckham along with Lychee and Lyla who make up part of Kat Brown Sugar’s band.
Whether DJing in clubs or or interviewing the hottest new music talents, Kat Brown has her finger on the pulse when it comes Mani’s music scene. She was the presenter of choice for the MOBO Awards at Parklife last year, where she took full advantage to have a chinwag with chart topper Raye & Grime star CoCo.
As recording artists, Kat Brown Sugar incorporates neo-soul vocals with jazz, with elements of R&B. Her live performances consist of a DJ, Saxophonist, Guitarist and vocals plus visual stimuli for equal measure with trippy, energetic and colourful imagery adorning the stage. Her music has been played on BBC radio six and more recently on BBC 1 Xtra. Last year saw her feature in a number of festivals and gigs including Didsbury Art Festival, B Festival and Band on the Wall. She recently debut her new single 'Turn It Up' featuring Woddy Green (of Roots Raddix).
With so many strings to her bow it is hard to know where you are likely to come across Kat Brown Sugar but she gave us a hint. “I want to focus on producing my own music and prepare for touring this summer”
