Wireless Connect Day 2 saw the likes of Rae Sremmurd, Kele Le Roc, Mist & Steel Banglez, Not3s + more take centre stage at the world biggest virtual festival.
This comes after day 1 which saw Stefflon Don, Gunna, Saweetie, Yungen, Tyga + more live at Wireless Connect.
Wireless Connect’s Saturday offering featured a mashup of hip hop, rap, grime, UKG and R&B. Hosted by Capital XTRA’s Yinka, fans were virtually transported to a secret US location for Lil Skies’ late-night set. The US rapper closed the Saturday night with ‘Riot’ and ‘Fidget’ – two massive singles he dropped earlier this year. Rae Sremmurd’s 2019 set was even madder than we remembered – the huge crowds jumping along to every line of the US rap duo’s hits ‘Black Beatles’, ‘No Type’ and ‘Come Get Her’ as the sun went down in Finsbury Park.
Over in the cutting-edge London studio, the No Merci: Garage Special was a non-stop, energetic celebration of the UK’s prolific garage scene, with MC Neat kicking off with huge banger ‘A Little Bit Of Luck’. Sweet Female Attitude brought summer favourites ‘Track 3’ and ‘Flowers’, before MC DT launched into seminal tune ‘Lovin’ It’. The jubilant set was completed with the UK’s best garage stars taking over Ally Pally; Nay Nay, Kele Le Roc, Heartless Crew, MC Kie and the incomparable vocals of Lisa Maffia & Neutrino.
