TIME: 7pm – 11pm
The Liverpool leg kicks off with a mesmerising showcase of future soul at the Palm House from Red Bull Music Academy alumni Jamie Woon, Red Bull studio affiliate SG Lewis, and Merseyside native, Suedebrown. Later proceedings get a shot of adrenaline as Greg Wilson pays Credit To The Edit with fellow discophiles Henry Greenwood, Peza, and Derek Kaye at Buyer’s Club. One of UK hip hop’s most stellar success stories, Krept & Konan pull up a chair to give us the inside track on how they maintained their credibility alongside a major label deal at Constellations, before bringing the Future Sounds of Hip Hop to Camp & Furnace, with Rejjie Snow, Loyle Carner, Suicideyear, and Siobhan Bell. In nearby Ropewalks, a house and hip hop history lesson gets underway with the master Kenny Dope supported by Kidkanevil and No Fakin’ DJs resident Paddy at The Merchant. Things will be getting all cosmic, as Detroit icon Moodymann takes over the Invisible Wind Factory with laser modules, mirrored kinetic sculptures, and a stellar line up featuring Hunee b2b Young Marco, Sassy J and Or:La, before Sunday brings weight as D Double E lays down the gauntlet to MCs Jammz, Ocean Wisdom, Footsie, Lady Leshurr, AJ Tracey and Santan Dave for a beatless recital within the imposing St. George’s hall.
