Yussef Dayes (UK) + DJ: Jesper Lemke – sold out

One of the UK's most exciting and innovative young drummers and producers, Yussef Dayes has been deeply involved in jazz as long as he can remember. Best known for work with his brothers in United Vibrations, and also as one half of electrifying duo Yussef Kamaal, he's been developing his sound since age four when his dad bought him his first drum kit.

Born and raised in South East London, as a kid Yussef was practicing non-stop: "My parents were strict - if I was gonna do this, I had to take it seriously." His father was a bass player in New York in the 70s, and brought home an education's worth of jazz vinyl that the Dayes brothers all grew-up on - Yussef and his bassist brother Kareem would play along to their dad's records for hours at a time. This was the closest he got to formal jazz lessons until, when he was ten, he studied under Billy Cobham (Miles Davies' drummer). Yussef considers this to have been the most impactful thing for his progression.
