Last week Red Bull Studios invited artists to host three nights of music for their Future Underground series. With a secret line-up only revealed 24 hours before each night, we caught the final show with the king of grime, Skepta. Held in a three-storey underground concrete space, DJ Logan Sama, Lucas Vercetti and Section Boyz warmed up the night before Skeppy made an entrance with ‘That’s Not Me’.
Playing ‘Ace Hood Flow‘, ‘Same Shit, Different Day’, ‘Nasty’, and ‘It Ain’t Safe’, the energy of the room couldn’t have been any higher, with a crowd shouting out each lyric whilst slamming as hard as they could into each other. Joined on stage by more of the Boy Better Know crew, Skepta, Frisco, Jammer, Shorty, and Maximum were in their element. A highlight of the night had to be Skepta throwing some light on E3 Bow vet Dizzee Rascal and his iconic track ‘I Luv U‘, rapping over the instrumental with making it his own.
After a guest appearance by Giggs and BBK performing ‘Man Don’t Care’, an electrifying show was ended with ‘Shutdown’. Obviously this set the room off again for one final time, where the only thing that could have topped it would have been if Idris Elba himself had joined on stage to spit his verse alongside Skepta.
