Mad Yella are the definitive story of originality and hard work reaping results. This Kent-based band are a joy to work with, listen to and watch. Their honesty and sublime sound is something to behold and cheer on as their careers continue to develop, much to their constant astonishment!
It’s a wonderful thing to see these cats grow. This is the New Jazz-Funk Generation
After a superb inaugural performing year in 2019, Mad Yella return to London in 2020. The band performed their first ever headline gig at an esteemed London Jazz club in 2019 before going on to share stages and lineups with UK soul & jazz giants such as Incognito, Light of the World, Omar, Beverly Knight, Theon Cross and Soweto Kinch. In the autumn of 2019 Mad Yella were invited to support Tony Momrelle before their own headliner at the EFG London Jazz Festival, incredible highlights for Mad Yella’s first year in performing. Following their new releases in 2020 Mad Yella have hit the radio airwaves across the world. Look forward to a spine-tingling performance of original music with wonderful jazz-funk and Neo Soul grooves that have inspired their unique sound. The new jazz-funk generation have arrived!
"The brilliant Mad Yella. Real instruments being played by real musicians. I hope that 2020 is going to be their year, they deserve it" Paul Miller BBC

Mi-Soul is a radio station on DAB, online and on app playing Soul, R&B, House, and other genres including Hip Hop, Reggae, and DnB.
Mi-Soul was founded by Gordon Mac (formerly Kiss FM), with long-time business partner Martin Strivens. Having left Colourful in June 2011, Mac launched Mi-Soul as an internet radio station in July 2012.. It commenced broadcasting on the Switch London 2 digital radio network on 27 June 2015.
Mi-Soul presenters and DJs include some of the UK's legendary names, including Lindsay Wesker, Jazzie B, Jumping Jack Frost, Brandon Block, and Dave VJ (formerly of Kiss); Femi Fem, Mastermind, Greg Edwards, and Keith Lawrence (formerly Capital Radio); George Kay, Calvin Francis, and Natty B (formerly Choice FM); Ronnie Herel, and DJ Bailey (formerly BBC Radio 1Xtra); and Mike Vitti (formerly Jazz FM). Other presenters to have appeared include the late Colin Faver and Paul Trouble Anderson.
Mike Vitti’s radio career began in 1987 hosting the first-ever dance show on Lancashire’s Red Rose Radio (now Rock FM), and since then he has presented programmes on Saturdays non-stop, playing a Funky mix of House, Jazz, Funk, Soul and Boogie.
Following a very successful five year stint as the programme director at Jazz FM where he curated the Funky Sensation brand to include a Saturday night radio show, live events at London’s prestigious Ronnie Scott’s and a series of hugely popular CDs, Mike left to develop the brand further and joined Gordon Mac at London’s Mi-Soul Radio, where the now Funky Nation is even bigger, better and funkier. The club night at Ronnie Scott’s (which has just celebrated its 9th anniversary) is even stronger and more popular than ever, and you can witness that for yourselves every Saturday night.
The Godfather of Dance Music, Gordon Mac is a highly innovative and successful entrepreneur. He was the first person to succeed in taking a pirate radio station to legalization in the UK, the youngest ever Managing Director of a radio station (1985-1997) and is renowned for creating the Kiss FM brand, Britain’s first dance music station.
Ronnie Herel is a true ambassador of Urban Music having had over a decade at the BBC. He was one of 1 Xtra’s first DJ signings, formerly presenting their specialist slot ‘The BBC Radio 1Xtra R&B Show and The BBC Radio 1Xtra Showcase on BBC Radio 1. He was the most listened to DJ via the 1Xtra website and a regular champion of new talent and a talent scout for The Voice UK.
As for today, Jon’s usual style is Jazz-Funk, Soul, Disco and Jacking House. His mixing skills are faultless, which has seen Jon become widely regarded and known as one of the most accomplished technical DJs in the UK. Coming runner-up in a public poll for Best Soul Club DJ by the “Soul Survivors” magazine.
