Okay, so it started off as a secret, but enough people know about it now for us to be able to post details on here. Tomorrow, the self proclaimed ‘Lewisham Don’ Kojo Kankam, or as you will know him, Novelist, is throwing a dance at warehouse-turned-club Shapes in Hackney Wick for his 18th birthday. As it stands, the lineup is pretty mad, but we’re 1000% certy most if not all the top dogs of the current London Grime scene will be in attendance (we’ve already had a few confirmations) to celebrate the occasion. The published lineup is:
+ some unannounced ‘Special Guests’ <We’re thinking Skepta, JME, Big Narstie, Mumdance + no doubt a birthday set from Nov himself>
You’ve heard us talk about Novelist on here before, so hopefully he won’t need too much of an introduction. Any info you’d like to know can be found here on his WIKIPEDIA page (mad that he’s just turned 18 and already has that). In the times we’ve met him, Nov has been a top bloke, so believe that we’ll be there on wave level 100 celebrating. If you want in, you have less than 48 hours to pay £6.50 HERE to get on the guestlist (with a £22.50 option for those gassed ones who want a ticket and an official Novelist T shirt) or, it was announced today you can also pay £10 entry on the door. Remember it starts at 9:30 so make sure you get your arse down there early. See you man there.
Novelist released his first EP last week in collaboration with Mumdance, titled ‘1 Sec’ via XL recordings, available here: 1 SEC EP
