There is simply no stopping Cynikal this year! After joining Nihal on BBC Radio 1 for an exclusive freestyle session, the fast-rising London artist and producer continues to take things up a notch – this time, with an excellent live performance at the prestigious Maida Vale Studios as part of the BBC’s ‘New Music Day’.
Accompanied by his band The Street Orchestra and a glorious string section, Cynikal offers up resounding live renditions of his two latest singles “Take Off” and “Beautiful”, leaving the Maida Vale audience – made up mostly of show producers and presenters across BBC Radio 1,BBC 1Xtra and BBC Asian Network – hailing his performance as the standout session of the ‘New Music Day’ series.
With the anticipation for his forthcoming EP ‘Toby’ continuing to build a strong momentum and after a series of critically acclaimed festival performances in June, Cynikal is going on the road again with a bevy of show dates in July and August including Camden Beach at Roundhouse and 4D at XOYO.
