Clash is teaming up again with Metropolis Music and Live Nation to bring a series of four seasonal live shows across London this year.
Starting off in West for our Spring showcase at Notting Hill Arts Club on Wednesday 11th April, we're presenting two grime MCs who push the boundaries of the defiantly British sound: Manga Saint Hilare and Snowy. Update: Now added to the bill joining Manga and Snowy are north west London breakthrough and JME personal favourites Vibbar, DB Soundsystem and NANG GIRLS on the decks. To make life even sweeter, we have decided to celebrate the launch of our partnership making this event a one-off free showcase to pack out Arts Club to the rafters.
We have 100 pairs of tickets to give away, to attend simply enter your full name, email adress and contact details into the form below and come shake a leg next week! For more info or guest list confirmation RSVP to [email protected]
Since being hand-picked by Wiley to join the legendary Roll Deep Crew in 2004, Manga Saint Hilare has continued to surprise listeners with forward-thinking releases that never compromise the true essence of grime. Last year he released an outstanding body of work, 'Outbursts From The Outskirts', entirely produced by Lewi B, which set new levels for how creative a grime LP can be, and he's already won listeners over in 2018 with the smooth Drae Da Skimask-produced 'Good Over Evil'.
Self-described as "Nottingham's Saviour", Snowy is part of a generation of rising stars who're proving that grime fans should be looking further than the capital when it comes to innovative MCing. The versatile spitter has been championed by Gilles Peterson, after being accepted into his Future Bubblers development programme, and put his name on the map with his 2016 'Knots' EP. He also appeared to deliver an 'Outburst' of his own on Manga's LP last year
These four shows, are part of a broader campaign between Clash, Metropolis Music and Live Nation to celebrate new music in London, keeping the capital at the forefront of live music destinations across the globe. Late March we jointly hosted Rich Brian's European debut performance and later this month Ski Mask The Slump God descends upon Kentish Town Forum. Along with a host of upcoming festival collaborations it's set to be our biggest year for Clash Live events yet.
