Jamaica meets Puerto Rico Uptown in East London! Two rooms of the finest Caribbean and Latin sounds from Jamaica to Puerto Rico and Trinidad to Cuba: dancehall/bashment, reggaeton, R’n’B, soca, Latin hip hop, reggae and zouk. Grime lord Jammer, formerly of NASTY Crew, passes through to drop an exclusive grimey bashment PA and keep things crazy hype on the mic. As a producer he's been smashing it recently with killer productions and remixes for the likes of Roots Manuva - while his incendiary live performances have been spreading the grime gospel all over Europe and North America. Just don't call him the Lil' Jon of grime... Neckle! London's new Latin sensations La Raza (Colombia) are also in the house with a live PA of their reggaeton/Latin hip hop bombs plus a troupe of hot reggaeton dancers. ¡Ay, que bueno!

About Jammer: Hailing from Leytonstone, East London, producer/MC/hype man Jammer is one of the key figureheads of the grime/garage scene: big tunes include Fire Hydrant and Destruction VIP (featured on the Run The Road compilation). The former N.A.S.T.Y. Crew member (now running his own clique, Jah Mek The World) smashed it in New York earlier this year alongside 17-year-old protege Ears and MC D Double E in one of grime's first forays into North America. Jammer's also worked with godfather of grime Wiley (Roll Deep), Lethal B (More Fire Crew) and Riko Dan and remixed the big man of UK hip hop, Roots Manuva, as well as finding time to launch the successful DVD series Lord of the Mic! His incendiary live performances - some call him the Lil' Jon of grime - have earned him a reputation as the most rewound artist around. Like he says...Neckle! "A brilliant grime pioneer" - The New York Times, "The crowd were obviously loving it, loving it, loving it" - Chantelle Fiddy on Jammer in New York.
