The Heatwave Preps a Massive Party With Wiley, General Levy, and More
It's putting it mildly to say that there's a lot going on in London these days. Like any hyperactive metropolis, it can sometimes be a challenge to plan your night out so as to not miss out. That being the case, might we suggest that Londoners make a point to check out Showtime, an absolutely massive stage show put on by DJ and production outfit The Heatwave. (You may remember the crew's excellent contribution to XLR8R's podcast series from back in 2009.) The stacked Showtime lineup includes artists like Wiley (pictured above), General Levy, Glamma Kid, Lady Leshurr, Skibadee, and lots of others, blurring the lines between jungle, grime, dancehall, and bashment to reveal the wider influence of Jamaican culture. The party is happening on June 15 at Cargo. The Heatwave's website has all the details and presale information, and we've posted the flyer below.
