Dirty Canvas (Skitz Beats Launch Party) - 2.12.06
Another month had arrived, and another new edition to the growing
popular Dirty Canvas Grime nights was about to commence. Along
with performances from Ruff Squad and Jammer, Skitz Beats added
his album launch to the night. Live P.A's from J.M.E and President T
of 'Heard what you said', and a set with what felt like half of the Grime
scene controlling the mic, DC were definitely not disappointing. With
Grime DJ, Logan Sama taking over the turntables for the set, we had
yet again another fabulous turnout with priceless performances.
DJ Magic introduced the night with his classic old school grime
vibes including Donaeo's 'My philosophy' and proved with his
timeless expertise, why he is the resident DJ. Scandalous hosted
the night and contributed to Magic's opening session which got the
drinks rolling in and gave us an insight to the genuine good vibes
that were all ready set in motion.
Jme with best friends... Goggles & Camera. Raj was
begging to be in this picture.
Jme enjoyed some much needed finger twiddling in the crowd, before
President T... I don't think they heard what you said...
JME I really don't think he heard what you said...
DJ Logan sama arrived quietly and took to the decks, mixing several
tracks before bringing JME and President T P.A of Skitz Beats eminent
'Heard what you said'. With their performance being some what even
better than the actual track itself, many members of the audience fainted
( I think), although many chose to attempt to spit along with the Mcs.
Frisco shortly joined his Boy Better Know associates and carried on the
energy in a 30minute set.
I didn't know if Bruza was just vexed as I was, that one girl wouldn't
stop poking her head infront of my pictures or that he just hated me.
"HYPERFRANK STOLE MY COCOA BUTTER"
Gradually many mcs came down from guzzling their drinks and along with
the rest already on stage, joined in. Bruza caught the mic and produced some
'Get Me' bars, while Knuckles grabbed some gasoline and a bottle of Alize and
showered down spectators. Trigz and Levels (Chip shop kool kool) created alot
of hype and paparazzi flashes along with many other Mc's like Blacks, Rage,
Krucial and Badness. Skepta later arrived, joining his adenuga brother and as
always made the crowd so hyped up, it was as if Crack had smoked up the
atmosphere, It was alot. Logan presented an extensive mix of beats while the
mc's brought steal bars, although the rush of vocal specialists weren't stopping.
Soon Members of Ruff Squad piled through the crowd and DJ Scholar
(I think, i was in paparazzi mode by now) took over from Logan and
Tinchy Stryder, Lightning, Fuda Guy, Shifty and many others assembled
themselves infront of DC. They all took their turn, although not even Skepta
could denie that when Rebound-X most identifiable beat to date dropped, the
whole room was in a gun finger frenzy. Skepta ran from the bar and ended
up half way in the crowd skanking away like his feet were running away from
him. The Ruff Squad set also got interrupted by a speedy Jammer, along with
Gully Ranjah who took the mic and like Skepta skanked out in the pits of
onlookers to give his creditable Murkle Man.
I'll leave Jammer's body dumped in an alley way
JME IS THAT REALLLLY YOU!! SCARY!!
JME blanks out dreaming about coming home to a page full of
Myspace Messages & comments.
Skepta hates smokers (so he says)
Logan loves twiddling big knobs and little knobs, infact any knob at all...
on the mixer DON'T GET IT TWISTED...
The picture says it all (nothing at all... just how anoying cameraphone ppl are)
Flo Dan showed us how his elderly moves are most definitely becoming pre-historic.
Dare i say it... Lightning on the mic AGAIN! where is security when you need it.
Give Tinchy the Mic... PLEASE
Skepta takes on the crowd and has a little skank!
Watch the white guy in the back, Claim to fame
"I swear down cuz, i touched his shoulder... it was MAGICAL"
"I SWEAR DOWN, i didn't borrow this jumper off of another member of RS
and he didn't wear it at the last DC performance "
SKITZ IS ALOT!!!
Although with several no shows i.e: Swinging Tempa T, the night still
went on and it was hardly noticeable apart from the lonely baseball
bat in the corner. An impressive night, Full line up with more mc's
than i could pack into a black plastic bag. Roll on the next Dirty Canvas.
