Let me see your body sweat
The David Banner / Radioclit party on Friday was really good - the best night I've been to in a few years maybe. After my pretty boring set, the night really picked up. Sinden, the guy after me, played an amazing mix of dancehall re-edits; a bit of hyphy; a bit of snap and loads of other stuff. Radioclit then kept the crowd going until Banner arrived.
Banner really knows how to work a crowd (grime kids who were there, please take note). He was stage diving; spraying the crowd in champagne; throwing out CDs; throwing out T-shirts (I grabbed a white one, although I still can't seem to get the stains out of it - can anyone recommend me something?); jumping off stage to rap in the audience; just doing stuff to get the crowd going. After Banner came Jammer, Skepta, Chronik and Tempa T. If you wanna see some short video phone movies of the grime guys, click here for Jammer and here for Tempa T.
