Logan sama and Boiler Room’s collaboration has seen a host of top Grime talent (such as Skepta, Kano, Stormzy, Ghetts, P Money, Big Narstie, Trim and Novelist) alongside the brightest future prospects perform this year inside the ICA, but for their most recent show things went up a notch!
Joining forces with the legendary Eskimo Dance event, this Sunday saw a 3 hour broadcast in the largest exhibition space the ICA has to offer featuring the likes of Ghetts, Newham Generals, OGz, Stay Fresh, Slimzee and Pay As U Go, Family Tree and a host of bright young talent! They also continued the practise of showcasing great producers and DJs with Spooky, Butterz duo Elijah & Skilliam and Teddy Music b2b Rude Kid all on the decks throughout the night along with Logan Sama. With over 500 people inside, the ‘Boiler Room’ lived up to its name on a scorching summer’s evening and you have to check out some of these sets again whether you caught it live or not!
From Boiler Room themselves:
‘Our next run-in with the Institute of Contemporary Arts is set to take things to yet another level of grimy goodness. With four sessions already tucked away in the archives, June 28th sees Boiler Room collaborate with yet another seminal grime institute to showcase the genre’s all-round strength.
The Eskimo Dance is widely considered as a holy grail for the movement – an influential, MC-fronted rave that helped shape the sound of London; initially between 2002 and 2005 before returning to the fray in 2012. We’ll be collaborating with the promoters behind it and our regular partner, Logan Sama, to relive those very moments; simultaneously reminiscing the early days and facing forward with a host of contemporary starlets.
Expect a legion of special guests, surprise experiences and members of grime’s most revered top ranks.’
At the moment you can watch the looped playback for the next couple of days until the individual sets are uploaded.
