Yesterday I excitedly went to XOYO to see Tempa T. Excitedly as I had been told he was one of the most energetic and exciting performers in Grime/HipHop.
For my sins it was the first time I’d been to XOYO; in the midst of Shoreditch high street, the club was highlighted in neon & coloured strobe lights flashing over the dancing crowd. The DJ played a mix of new grime tracks & classics from Wiley & Skepta with the vibration pumping through the club. President T had set hyping up the crowd at midnight & engaging with the audience as the energy picked up & every swarmed towards the stage.
I was gutted that by 1am Tempa T had still not taken the stage, so with no performance in sight and the rowdy crowd getting ever wasted, it looked like my night was over.
The Staff were great, I will be back, but Tempa needs to give me a free guest list next time, so I really can see if he is as amazing live, as he is rumoured to be….
