Sky & Ross from Morcheeba


Skye and Ross from Morcheeba are coming to the MusicHall at Zabeel Saray on the Palm on the 20th of January at 20.00.


Dubai is thrilled to welcome the electrifying Skye and Ross from Morcheeba, the most groove-oriented British band of the mid-nineties. They are worshiped for their female-fronted electronica music art, with rhythms that rely on the sweet, fluid vocals of Skye Edwards and a laid-back mix of fusion, funk, hip-hop, jazz, reggae and blues produced by Ross Godfrey on beats, scratches, guitar and keyboards.


The duo comes from the legendary British trip-hop band Morcheeba, which was formed in 1995 when the Godfrey brothers decided to go out on their own after co-producing David Byrne's album Feelings. After hooking up with the multi-talented vocalist Skye Edwards at a party, Morcheeba shoot for the stars and signed to the funky China label. Following the release of two EPs (Trigger Hippie and Music That We Hear), the band issued its debut album, Who Can You Trust? It appeared on the American Discovery label in late 1996, and Morcheeba toured the U.S. with Live and Fiona Apple the following year. Big Calm followed in 1998 and Fragments of Freedom was released two years later. Charango appeared in 2002 and featured guest appearances from Lambchop's Kurt Wagner and rapper Slick Rick. A year later, the greatest hits collection Parts of the Process was released and Skye Edwards left the band. Former Noonday Underground vocalist Daisy Martey joined the group for 2005's The Antidote, a more acoustic album that mixed psychedelia with Burt Bacharach-styled pop. Dive Deep (2008) took a marked turn toward folk, with the Godfreys using a number of vocalists who included Thomas Dybdahl, Judie Tzuke, and Bradley Burgess. But original vocalist Skye Edwards returned to the fold for 2010's Blood Like Lemonade and remained for the 2013 release Head Up High. The band has drifted apart a couple of years again, but Skye and Ross are coming to Dubai to inspire their grateful audience once again.
