Review: Words Are Weapons – The Clash

IMG_20140721_182315

Saturday 19th July saw us review the Words are Weapons rap / grime event at Henry’s in Scunthorpe Town centre.

Words Are Weapons – The Clash is the UK’s largest growing MC Clash event. The event is currently touring the country, pitting local rap and grime artists against each other, as well as bringing larger names from the rap battle scene to fans across the Country.

The event was held in the Zebras upstairs at Henrys. This provided an intimate setting for the crowds that were already arriving when the doors opened at 2pm.
It was good to see an excellent turnout for this kind of event in Scunthorpe, which is as far as we know, the first of its kind in the area.
2014-07-19 15.16.59Warming up the event on the decks was TT, playing an excellent selection of urban music which really added to the atmosphere in the room.

The clashes followed after. Clashes are split in to 3 rounds, with each rapper having 90 seconds to out-perform the other. At the end, the nominated judges for the event decide who the best artist was.  In the interest of fairness, rappers not from the local area will have their battles judged online, to remove any bias.

The calibre of all the contestants involved was impressive. These guys have clearly spent a lot of time and effort perfecting their craft, with all showing decent timing, well thought-out lyrics, witty insults, references to the local area and humour which had the crowd cheering and laughing.

The event didn’t go strictly to plan, as some of battlers from out of town failed to turn up. This was handled in the best way possible by the organiser despite the set back, organised an ad-lib royal rumble 3-way clash, so everyone on the bill got to participate at the event.
Despite the setback, everyone we spoke to afterwards had thoroughly enjoyed it, and were pleased this kind of event was catered for locally. We hope to see more of the same in the near future as it was a pretty popular genre.

Thanks to WAW for inviting Scunthorpe Nights along and we hope to see Words Are Weapons in the area again soon.

SORTED – UNDERGROUND DANCE MUSIC FROM THE 1990S AT MERIDIAN PARK CLEETHORPES

srted

Saturday 16th August

Successful artists and DJs on the underground dance music scene during the 1990s will be playing sets comprising only of music produced in the year 1999 or before. All DJ sets are vinyl only.

The event is to provide a full day of inspiring house music produced during the 1990s and showcase increasingly forgotten beat-matching skills. To recreate the positive, friendly atmosphere that existed during the early rave and underground dance music scene.

The line-up is intentionally diverse. Funky, soulful house music will be followed by acts from the breakbeat scene, classic progressive house as well as flashbacks to the old skool rave scene.

Now the amazing ALISON LIMERICK added to the event.
