Reading Festival: Friday Review 2016

Reading Festival has to be one of my favourites, and that’s mainly because of the eclectic mix of music, and them always being at the forefront when it comes to supporting Grime and UK Rap artists such as Giggs, Fekky, Sneakbo.

Arriving on the Friday in the early evening, we only got a few hours to see some of the acts left on the first day. Entering the arena from behind the main stage we watched producer duo and brothers Disclosure who were on the main stage and opened with their hit ‘White Noise’. They went onto play their own tracks ‘F For You’ and ‘You & Me’ saying that “Reading Festival was the first festival me and Howard went too, that’s why I think this is going to be the best crowd we’ve ever played too, am I right?” The crowd were quick to scream their answers of yes adding to their excitement. As the sun set and we were in darkness, the lazers appeared across the sky from the stage with ‘Bang That’ being played out to the huge crowd.

As we passed the Dance Stage there was some heavy tunes and dirty basslines coming out of it, so naturally we entered and discovered the sounds of DJ/Producer duo Jack U also known singularly as Diplo and Skrillex. They banged out some heavy-duty tracks that you couldn’t help but skank out too, including their own track and one of my personal favourites, ‘Take You There’, Disclosure’s ‘You & Me’ (Flume Remix), and Skepta’s ‘Shutdown’. The energy in the tent was insane and they definitely did shut down their headline set on Friday in the Dance Tent.

Wiley was last up at the BBC Radio 1Xtra Stage and I managed to catch most of his set, he entered onto the stage spitting “I done a lot of tracks in the manor, E3 you can get the loud pack in the manor.” Scratchy then joined him on stage flowing over a classic grime instrumental ‘Creeper’ by Danny Weed bringing more energy to the stage with this track. Wiley moved onto ‘Can’t Go Wrong’ and more commercially known track ‘Wearing My Rolex’. Flowdan was brought out where the three went back to back over Preditah’s ‘Circles,’ and Rebound X ‘Rhythm N Gash’ where JME bounced out onto the stage also joining in on the mic. As the end of the night appeared and Wiley’s set was drawing to an end he announced, ““They said to shut it down, you know what we’re gonna do,” and left us with renditions of Skepta’s ‘Shutdown’ and BBK’s ‘Too Many Men’.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @OfficialChip @OfficialKozzie @Jaykae_Invasion @Disclosure

Chip – Run Out Riddim & Hat Trick

Chip continues his assault on Manchester’s Bugzy Malone following up from “Light Work” dropping two more tracks “Run Out Riddim” and “Hat Trick” dropping bars with diss after diss targeted at the Manchester-rapper. He also dropped the Light Work EP which includes the three disses and the other original diss track for Bugzy “Pepper Riddim”. We should expect a response soon.

Kozzie – RIP Part 1 & Part 2

It’s definitely war season in grime as the legendary Lord Of The Mics returns for it’s seventh series. Kozzie and Jaykae are clashing each other, and before the live show on Wednesday (September 20), Kozzie sends two dub for the Birmingham MC, letting him know what he’s in for and firing warning shots. I wonder if we’ll see anymore in the few days in the lead up to the clash?

Jaykae – Blankets Bedtime

Invasion Alert’s Jaykae swiftly replied to Kozzie’s dub this week with one of his own “Blankets Bedtime” showing Kozzie he hasn’t taken his send lying down, and is not scared of the Lewisham based MC. These two have built such a huge tension ahead of their live clash, it’s certainly going to be very interesting and entertaining to watch on the night!

Disclosure – Jaded

Ahead of the release of their album Carcacal later this month, Disclosure reveal a brand new video “Jaded”. This is the latest video in a four part installment, picking up from “Omen” ft. Grammy winner, Sam Smith following protagonist Maria who steers her way across a dystopian civilization.
