Back with Rinse FM, and this time bringing Reebok into the mix to celebrate the launch of their ‘Reebok Reserves’ archival classics collections, we’re heading North for our latest size? session. Taking place at Glasgow’s The Poetry Club, Mon 21st Sep (19:00 – 22:30), this one threatens to be a real showdown. Before we go any further, let’s introduce the line-up…
With a headline slot from Che Lingo, who recently signed to Idris Elba’s 7Wallace imprint, and performances from Edinburgh-based hip hop artist Billy Got Waves, Glasgow DJ collective Magic City, and local DJ/Broadcaster K4CIE, we can’t wait to bring the heat to one of the city’s hottest venues.
Releasing his debut album EP ‘Charisma’ in 2018, South-London based artist Che Lingo’s heartfelt takes on rapping has seen him gain a real name within the scene. His debut album ‘Sensitive’ – which comes almost as a mission statement – was released the following year, and saw him picked up by Idris Elba’s 7Wallace imprint. With upside of a million streams on tracks ‘My Block’ and ‘Dark Days’ – we can’t wait to see this artist on the rise.
Billy Got Waves
Hailing from Edinburgh, half Scottish half Nigerian rapper Billy Got Waves arrives as one of the hottest names in Scottish Hip Hop. Lauded for his signature blend of trap, afro bashment, grime and R&B, his style pairs witty lyricism with catchy hooks. Picking up an IMA Award for Best Scottish Album of 2018, as well as support slots for the likes of A$AP Nast and 808INK, we’re excited to see what he brings to a local crowd.
Hosting one the city’s most successful Hip Hop and RnB nights, the Magic City DJ collective are dedicated to showcasing the scene’s best new talent. Providing a platform for rising stars, often for their first ever Scottish show, their sets are also loved for their buttery smooth mix of genres and signature neon arrangements. Let’s Party.
Based in Glasgow, as a broadcaster and DJ when K4CIE isn’t spinning her own tracks she’s busy bigging up other people’s. Featured on the Glasgow instalment of Eventbrite’s Generation DIY series, her party PEACH – which works to create inclusive spaces for women on line-ups and in clubs – has seen her well respected in the scene. Hosting shows on NTS, Rinse, and Berlin Community Radio, as well as dropping music on the likes of LuckyMe’s imprint, we’re buzzing to see this trailblazer in action.
