pow! ain’t no party like an i-D mix and last thursday’s shakedown was no different

​We took over the warehouse space of Shapes, deep in the heart of Hackney Wick to celebrate some of the freshest and finest in grime.

With legends and newcomers alike, the first DJ set of the night came from The Heavytrackerz, who warmed things up in a seriously hot way by treating us to an exclusive preview of their forthcoming unreleased banger with South London based rap collective Section Boyz. Next, we welcomed hype hype performances from Jammz and Bonkaz, who had the dance spitting along with their bars the entire set! DJ to Novelist and The Square, Grandmixxer, mixed and cut together a big set before ravers including Lily Allen, Rejjie Snow and Wiki from Ratking. Last but certainly not least, Logan Sama absolutely destroyed the dancefloor with a set of grime anthems old and new hosted by the original Lord Of The Mic, Jammer, who sent the energy levels through the roof.

Manchester affiliate Madam X closed the night with a vibey set of party classics and Manchester dubplates!

Fix up, look sharp and check out some of the highlights of the night. Keep your eyes peeled for an i-D Mix near you soon!
