3rd Edge

ArtForm: CityShowcase Act/Composer

The latest additions to the UK R&B sound 3rd Edge have been honing their blend of UK garage, R&B, hip hop and soul into their own sound. Described by Ms Dynamite as "...a really talented and genuine group of guys." Coming together at a Gillingham Garage club at the end of 1999, vocalist Thomas Jules Stock joined up with DJ and MC Jamie Thompson (known as JTee to his friends) and Dan Grant to form 3rd Edge. Their early sessions consisted of nothing more than half sketched songs, but it's the seeds laid in these early days that have blossomed into their current sound. Debut single 'In & Out' quickly became a hit on the club circuit and pirates, with follow up 'You Know You Wanna' hitting the top 20. 3rd Edge have appaeared on Top of the Pops and supported the Sugababes. So do they live up to the promise of In & Out? "We've got age on our side," Dan smiles, with a wink. "We've got stamina". As the music attests, the matter of whether 3rd Edge have stamina simply isn't up for debate. 3rd Edge are a long-overdue blast of fresh for air in an increasingly stale pop scene.
