'Whiskey Business' is a feature length documentary about a new UK, Birmingham based band called 1EYE. 1EYE have already supported UB40, Beverley Knight, Toots and the Maytals and Musical Youth. Creating a buzz within industry circles, 1EYE recently released their debut single 'Worries & Trouble' featuring Apache Indian. 1EYE have blended a multitude of flavours creating a barrel of an album also entitled 'Whiskey Business', which is a distinctive mix of reggae, Latin, and soul. The album is lyrically entertaining making quirky references to life in Birmingham and beyond. Whiskey Business was mostly filmed at a run-down Georgian pub called 'The Church Inn' in Birmingham. Half of 1EYE were living there at the time. The band organised two gigs at the pub’s dilapidated function room in order to polish the material before it was recorded. At the same time the band were building a studio in the old coal cellar in preparation for the recording of Whiskey Business. Alek (lead singer) makes a last minute decision and decides to fly out to Cannes to meet Danny (bass player) who is working with another band on a short stay. The two of them work around Danny’s gigs to network and promote 1EYE. Their time in Cannes gives an interesting twist to the story offering even more comical scenes set in a refreshing new location. Alek and Danny are faced with bad news upon their return. 1EYE are presented with a strict deadline. They not only have to finish building the studio, but also have to record the album and break the studio down all within a space of three weeks as the pub is now being sold by the owner! Emotions run high. The story gains pace as 1EYE set about achieving this near impossible goal. 1EYE manage to finish the album and embarks upon the daunting task of organising and promoting their first album showcase at a 2000 capacity nightclub called ‘Oceana’ in Birmingham. This concludes the documentary Whiskey Business. The film offers an interesting insight into what it’s like to truly ‘do it yourself’ from an unknown artist’s perspective. It is full of music, comedy, emotion and deadlines. Whiskey Business is a must for anyone who’s keen to immerse themselves in the gritty reality of what it’s like for a UK band trying to launch themselves into the public eye on limited resources. Radio stations that have played ‘Worries & Trouble’ include; BBC 1Xtra, Solar FM, Asian Network and Sting FM. 1EYE’s single has also been play listed by ZonaReGGae radio, Portugal and WCBN, Michigan USA. 1EYE’s 'Dopamine' remix has also been played frequently by Roger Sanchez.

Hip Hop Artist Kazi Performs
Saturday, October 21---As the Turks and Caicos International Film Festival, an event devoted to the relationship between film and music, moves into its final stanza, one of the relevatory aspects of the event has been the remarkably vibrant rainbow of contemporary black music. While rap, hip hop and rhythm and blues (or a mix of all of the above) is clearly the dominant trend, black artists continue to expand the form of jazz, reggae, singer-songwriter and rock musi...
