The only thing not perfect about this “once-in-a-generation” (daps to J-Bo), era-defining event was the nine in the date. Recently legalised champions of UK bass music Rinse FM celebrated their 16th birthday at London (and Europe’s) greatest club and put on what was unquestionably one of the most powerful moments in the lives of all who attended. No surprise when many invested more than three hours waiting in a line-up that stretched from Charterhouse St all the way down to Farringdon station.
The voice of now in the UK, Miss Katy B, had the crowd jumping from the jump, running through her stacked crate of hits and running up and down the stage showing love back to the people who had supported her and her Rinse family for so many years.
Then in an unbilled, gobsmack of a career-best performance Ms Dynamite quite simply murderated it, underlining in no uncertain terms that she is a living legend.
…then P-Money let London know what it felt like to be on Mount Sinai with Moses when God handed down the Ten Commandments amid thunder and lightening.
…before BBK obliterated the show with a helping hand from a Tim Westwood-freestyle era Chipmunk going back to back with an amped Skepta, Shorty, Jammer and JME. Epic does not cover it.
