So..........I've been busy. Stacking my Ps etc.
Anyway, I was at Chantelle Fiddy's clubnight at 333 on friday. If you weren't there, you missed out. I turned up around 12 and it wasn't looking very grimey at all. Hattie Collins was on deckle, interjecting the silence between some records with apologies to the crowd, which I found strangely touching. Blah blah blah...I'll cut to the chase. It all kicked off around 3. Ears, Scare Dem, No Lay, All in One, Stamina Boy, Skepta (who was wearing a dead animal on his head), Scratchy, Jammer, Chronik, Fuda Guy and a small bald guy all touched mic. (oh yeah, and hector or whatever he's called - says 'rudeboy' a lot). I managed to blag my way onto stage when the main set started with Logan on deckle, but headed back into the crowd after a while when everything got moving. (See a little clip here). Scratchy definitely merked and Skepta came with loads of big new bars. I also noticed Stamina Boy had smuggled a hip flask of Whisky in his back pocket. Good plan for the next one I think.
I managed to catch Dizzee, Newham Generals and Klass A at Fabric a couple of weeks ago. Klass A were ok - quite interesting production; Newham Generals were pretty big, but the crowd seemed a bit baffled - chants by Double of "when I say 'ooooooahhhhhhhh, you say 'it's mmmmwwwwweeeehhhhhh mmmmwwwwweeeehhhh'" left most people looking confused. Dizzee was pretty good, but didn't come with any new material. (listen to Dizzee live in Nottingham here). The highlight of the night for me was when Jammer tried to push his way on stage to do a live pa. Unfortunately, the security weren't having it, but I had a chat to jamble later on and he's fine with me mocking him, so that's good.
I was at the VICE birthday last week too. I honestly can't remember most of what happened due to being absoultely fucked when I got there and then there was all of the free beer they were giving out...
I remember talking shit to Trim when I got there and also having a little chat to Jammer and Faction G, but that's about it. I kind of recall seeing Kano live with Dangermouse (who got air pie I heard) and of course, how could I forget Jammer pulling out his CD to give to the DJ so he could do a live PA of Murkle Man? I've got no idea if I actually saw Fire Camp, but they were there too. For a full rundown, go to Danny Walker.
