February. The chance to see him in such an intimate environment, and share in the celebration of his first release, is an opportunity you won’t want to pass up.
Be one of the first to experience something different funky and fresh. Set The Tone has already been supported by tastemaker DJs such as Trevor Nelson on Radio 1; it reached #1 on Choice FM’s R&B chart and climbed to the A list on 1Xtra. The video for this introductory single was shot in the United States and looks set to bring Nate the respect and success he deserves, while providing a taste of what is to come from this future star, who is already getting major plays on MTV Base and Channel U .
Set The Tone is a soul classic with sparse beats, uplifting rhythms and a feel good funky drive throughout the track. The single features the original and two 12” mixes with guest appearances from rapper Shaun Hollywood. Having already won over the soul and R&B worlds, the mainstream release of this track will help break Nate with a whole new audience.
This release is completed by the addition of Pretend, a collaboration with The Emmanuel Project, is a treat for those that have already supported Set The Tone and love their soul music. It has an infectious swing-beat rhythm with hooky vocals in a Musiq Soulchild kinda vibe - a clever production, which is not too far from the urban market yet so unique.
Having been released as a download only in 2004, Set The Tone will finally reach the shops in February, throwing down a marker that Nate will more than live up to with his debut album later in the year.
