Kano teams up with Elijah & Skilliam on a five day, five city UK tour!
Until a few weeks ago, we'd barely heard a feature verse from Kano in years, and in his absence the words "grime revival" have become two of the most used in the English language, as tracks from Skepta, The Square, Dizzee, Stormzy, Jammz and more continue to explode on a weekly basis. So it's poetically apt that one of the original scene's most potent and prolific MCs is now back in the 2015 game, and coming to Plug. Expect Kano to blaze through his back catalogue of cult classics and new material for a very rare show in the steel city.
ELIJAH & SKILLIAM
As DJs and label owners and now quarterly residents at the omniscient Fabric, Elijah & Skilliam's assault on the UK grime scene has been gathering pace since their Rinse show started back in 2008, and last summer was easily their most ambitious to date. With their open source approach to the show culminating in two things, the release of their Rinse: 17 mix in 2011 and the founding of their Butterz label the year before, their names and the Butterz brand have become intrinsically linked with the cutting edge of grime music and in-house artists like Swindle, Royal T, Flava D and Terror Danjah.
