As we draw a close to the first month of his residency, ONEMAN welcomes Grime dons Wiley & Slimzee, Night Slugs head honcho Bok Bok, while Patta Soundsystem take care of room 2.
Known by most as the Godfather of Grime, Wiley derived from the late 90s garage scene as part of the legendary Pay As U Go crew, before forging the grime sound through a series of highly influential ‘eskibeat’ instrumentals on white label vinyl. He rose to fame in the early ‘00s as an mc, producer and member of seminal grime-collective Roll Deep. The rest is history, for fifteen years Wiley has been at the forefront of one of the most successful genres in recent UK history.
As co-founder of influential radio station Rinse FM, Slimzee influenced an entire generation with his revolutionary radio shows, championing various strands of bass-heavy music - most notably grime – a sound that he had a huge hand in developing throughout the early ‘00s alongside Wiley, Geeneus & more.
As if that wasn’t enough, Night Slugs’ head honcho Bok Bok rounds off this special line-up.
