Randomly ended up at the Professor Green Single Launch Party, for I Need You Tonight, thursday at the Macbeth in Hoxton. Was a packed out venue and little did I know there was a surprise waiting for me at the end.
S-X and Joseph Patterson going ard with his wife rose.
Scaring Ayesha from Boxfresh with our skanking, to Chantelle Fiddy's mixing selection of classic grime, all that was missing was Wiley to come and walk through the door with an apple pie and a fat suit.
My Diesel U Music Underground Lab partner JP and myself getting a little to intimate during a skanking session.
Rinse that nerd that attacks, apparently... where's the album fam?
I remember when Pro G fell over at The Jump Off during a battle and still managed to kill of the guy (lyrically of course). His current performance however was just as flawless, without the falling off, although with fewer murdering punch lines but more catchy hooks. He came on with arguably a live band, back up singers, bass and DJ to showcase his newest selection of green, no mary jane. His classic Upper Clapton Dance opened the full venue to his sound , just incase they needed a lesson. By the time he came to his newest single, I Need You Tonight, the cliched line 'audience in the palm of your hand' was the only thing that could describe it. The single itself isn't my exact cup of tea but I can only show respect to the performance he delivered, it's no wonder he's number 2 in the mid weeks.
Bruza is that you avin some of dat alcohol
Without knowing I was about to witness a madness on the deckles and the mic, P Money hosting Skream's set. They both went in very smoothly with an all dubstep set complimented well with grime's P Money, Blacks and Roxxxane's vocals. Skream got the crowd edging on their imaginary seats with his remix of Ms Dynamite's Wile Out, but the hosts for the night weren't about to let the disc jockey take it from them that easy. Roxxxane represented birmingham skipping, literally, over Doctor P's Sweet Shop with bitter lines about getting rudeness from another girl. Blacks done a madness with his 'Be Easy Fam' bars over Emalkay's When I Look At You, while P Money absolutely smashed up the dance with 'Head Gone' over Midnight Request Line. It was definitely something I'd love to see again, as it seems like a lot of MC's seem to like experimenting with the industrial sounds of Dubstep and to be honest the balance of both is heaven to my ears.
P Money and Skream ready to get the party moving...
Roxxxane going in and again and again
