The Illtown trio came through with their almost 25th anniversary show. Yep, feeling old! Would have thought the guys would have been a bit sluggish too but they were quite the opposite with plenty of energy and Treach still buff. Hennessy flowed and hands were waved from side to side like it was 19-Naughty-3 all over again!

Veteran pioneers of grimey hiphop, Mobb Deep celebrate the 20th anniversary of iconic “The Infamous” by performing the album in its entirety at The Hifi on a lazy Sunday night.
Future returned to its original home this year, while it was skeptical that would also be a return of the torrential rain and sloppy conditions of old it was the complete opposite with the festival gods smiling down with perfect weather. Production was upped with plenty of confetti and CO2 cannons, pyrotechnics and lighting along with an updated stage layout. All in all another epic day on the field.

Photog-love, I can feel it in the air :p
Hip hop royalty came together for a night of quality and a variety tunes. Even though they decided to come on 2 whole hours earlier than predicted, Pete Rock and DJ Premier played a set of classics and modern works from underground to commercial with plenty of running commentary in between. Far from a technical set but enjoyable none the less to catch two greats under the one roof!
Mr. X to the Z brought his versus Hip Hop show to the Chalk Hotel carpark for the first installlment of their Soundcheck series of hip hop events to be held over the next few months. Even with sound restrictions, X stomped through with his west coast flavour and unmistakeable pizazz and charm.

Public Enemy brought the noise and an energetic show to the Hifi bar that would put most of today’s acts to shame!

The legendary Pete Rock popped into Alhambra to drop some of his fave tunes
Hit me again Ike and this time put some STANK on it!
I don’t think Tina was talking about the same thing Mr. Boi was when he released Stankonia with fellow OutKast-er Andre 3000 but no doubt there was still plenty of booty slapping in mind!
Big Boi brought his energetic live band set up for a show at the Tivoli. Support from the very entertaining Theophilus London.
If you don’t follow live funk/soul or listen to JJJ you might have missed the Space Invadas stampede, so its about time you caught up to speed and find out what you missed out on! Support from Pursuit Grooves, bit like Lauryn Hill and Wyclef before they both lost their marbles.
For fans of the Dame Reggaeton nights, new comer Toca is here to fill in the lull between Dame gigs. The music policy is a little more relaxed with a sprinkling of commerical RnB and hiphop and house, but all still keeping with the tropical rhythms the Dame events are renowned for. Set in the pleasantly intimate space of The Aviary, Toca is aiming at becoming a monthly event.
