What with East London having established a musical presence for itself, the west of the capital is often overlooked, with many people underestimating the wealth of music bubbling out of it at the moment.
To prove those naysayers wrong, CLASH took to Notting Hill Arts Club for a special live showcase, in association with Vero True Social - giving stage time to a handpicked selection of our favourite faces in grime and UK rap right now.
Manga St Hilare, Snowy, Vibbar, DB Sound System and NANG Girls all shelled it down to a packed-out crowd, proving exactly why west is best.
Peep the gallery above to see the acts bringing the energy on the evening.
