We did many posts on Ty before we invited him over to spice things up in Rotterdam. So this post is for those of you who are not famliar with Ty and need to know why Rotown is the place to be on the 17th of June!!

To inform y’all on Ty, incorporating his PR with some footage from a gig he did in London Jazz Cafe in May 2010, seemed to be the smartest thing to do. But if you are curious about the man behind the music….my advice would be to watch the interview he did with Soul UK just recently.

One of Hip Hop Music’s True Innovators Ty has been making music and pushing boundaries for a decade. Ty has 3 albums and over 400 tracks strong, a Mercury Music nomination and countless guest appearances under his belt with the likes of Tony Allen, De La Soul, Damon Albarn and Pee Wee Ellis with Ty also featuring alongside Estelle on Afro Reggae’s Favela Rising album, to name a few. Ty is a legend in the making.

Probably best known for his live shows, Ty has toured all over the world establishing a strong fanbase reaching a quarter of million hits on myspace and over 30,000 friends. In March 2008 Damon Albarn invited Ty to perform with him alongside a host of special guests as part of his Africa Express performance in Europe. Most recently Pee Wee Ellis invited Ty to perform alongside him at Barbican Theatre as part of the Still Black, Still Proud, a James Brown tribute concert.

2010 sees Ty launching his 4th Album Special Kind of Fool on BBE Records. With the single release Emotions featuring Shaun Escoffery and Sarina Leah, Special Kind of Fool features a rich line up of artists. Ty is a Special Kind of Fool all kinds of music. http://www.tymusic.co.uk www.myspace.com/tyandupwards
