Sundays Camden Crawl was going to be as eventful as Saturdays. Stuck in the tube for 20 minutes, I was getting annoyed at the fact that I could very well miss Benny Banks performance. I rushed to the Holiday Inn to pick up my band again and rushed to Barfly where Sway hosted the evening stage. As I got there I was hoping it was running behind time like yesterdays acts. Unfortunately it wasn’t and I had missed Benny Banks’ performance.
I headed to the Cuban to catch Random Impulse a grime MC from South London who plays the electric guitar with a backing band consisting of a bassist, drummer and another guitarist, bringing an innovative sound. We pushed our way to the front of the crowd, as Random Impulse seemed to have a lot of fans, packing out the venue. The performance was electric and he really seemed to have heated up everybody very well.
Next stop was Electric Ballroom for very talented artists set, Youngman. The Digital Soundboy vocalist really brought fire to the large venue as soon as he came on, bringing everyone dotted around the venue to the front and raving. Known for his vocals in the drum n bass, r&b and bassline scene, everyone in Electric Ballroom certainly knew his recently released single ‘Who Knows.’
Youngman’s and Random Impulses set had got us hyped up as we made our way back to Barfly for one of my favourite acts Clement Marfo + The Frontline. People wonder how I still enjoy there sets after seeing so many…the truth is each one for me is the same as seeing them for the first time. They always keep up the excitement and bring such a tremendous amount of energy; it’s hard not to start moshing. We raved hard in the upstairs of Barfly, with everyone jumping around it was hard for the newbies not to get caught up in their set!
Next was the dubstep crew True Tiger at Dingwalls. As I waked in I caught sight of the Newham Generals, happy knowing they were going to be gracing the stage with the Tigers. They played some of their well know produced tracks including ‘Slang Like This’ and ‘Be Like Me.’ Dingwalls again was pretty much packed out for their set, with some faithful fans in the audience skanking out to the bass heavy tunes.
Food was the next for us as we headed along Camden high street, finding pizza was the best option. We thought about going back to the Cuban to see Melody Kane DJ at the afterparty but were too tired. Making our way to the taxi stand we called it a night. Both Saturday and Sunday had worn us out in a good way, and I would definitely recommend the crawl to any music/party lovers next year.
