After releasing two EPs on Doorly’s Pigeonhole This! label in summer 2012. The band’s debut EP ‘WON’T STAY DOWN’ peaked at number 11 in the iTunes electronic chart and set the scene for the follow up success of ‘LAST DAY’. The track received countless BBC Radio 1 plays courtesy of Annie Mac, Toddla T, and Friction, and was showcased as part of the now legendary ‘Free Music Monday’ blog.
Thabo’s vocals also featured on the Duke Dumont underground house hit ‘No Money Blues’ taken from his ‘For Club Play Only’ EP – garnering plays from EVERY specialist Radio 1 DJ.
Formed in 2009 from after-hours jam sessions in Huddersfield – put together by rhythm section duo Noah Burton (Drums) and Jack Button (Bass), Extra Curricular sculpted their sound passing through the genres of hip-hop, jazz and funk before settling on their present sound.
The current formation boasts an impressive live stage show, which has to be witnessed to be fully appreciated. The band blend soulful grooves, bass driven beats, and luscious melodies together to form deep and meaningful songs delivered by the rapturous vocals and presence of Thabo.
