Review: Chimpo on Ice @ Somerset House, London 28/11
Chimpo on Ice – The only obvious connection between ice rinks and grime music until now has been restricted to Wiley’s pioneering sound. However last Friday saw Somerset House, normally a venue reseved for high brow culture. That’s based on the bank of the Thames in central London taken over by Chimpo on Ice!
DJs such as Toddla T, Chimpo, Kahn were joined by MCs like Slick Don to host an evening of icy exercise as grime fans. They got their skates on (literally!) for some outdoor raving!
Definitely a nice (an ice) change from sweaty clubs in East London and a good chance to clash your mates on the ice!!! The whole experience of it being outdoors also gave the thing a new and novel feel – highly recommend to try it!
Also there are limited edition Kid Acne Monkey Teef screen prints, with a custom Girls Music USB. Which contains full mixtape now on sale via Ninja Tune here. Also don’t forget to grab the free downloadable mixtape ‘Monkey Teef’ via Girls Music –
