Some exciting news for you all: Boston native Slaine headlines this OTU Live show with his début solo performance in the UK. Slaine became internationally acclaimed for his work as a member of the La Coka Nostra collection, and having managed to hold his own alongside veterans Everlast and ILL Bill, Slaine earned himself a solid fan base and his talent grew exponentially under the limelight. After taking timeout to secure his position as the premier ‘Boston tough guy’ in movies, starring in Gone Baby Gone and The Town, Slaine returned to music in 2011 by releasing the long-awaited A World With No Skies 2.0, and more recently the universally-praised State Of Grace mixtape with Statik Selektah.
Representing Philadelphia supergroup Army of the Pharaohs is Reef the Lost Cauze, who like Slaine will be joined live onstage by DJ Illegal- one half of Europe’s most talented production team, Snowgoons. With Reef and Snowgoons having recently teamed up to produce one of the 2011’s most anticipated albums in Your Favourite MC, this event will give UK fans the chance to see the masterpiece performed live, alongside the biggest tracks from Reef, Army Of The Pharaohs, and the Snowgoons’ considerable and critically-adored back catalogues.
In a night of diverse collaborations, the support acts will be representative of London’s own musical diversity. Multi-talented and viewed as one of London’s best event hosts, Stig of the Dump will be gracing the stage with his trademark brand of humour, and a selection of his most exciting songs. In charge of the records for the night is DJ Snuff, a veteran of the hip-hop scene, who will also be unveiling his new collective: Caxton Press.
