Line-up /Wiley (live)
For winning the recent nationwide competition, Smirnoff Battle of the Clubs, we can now bring you the biggest and best line-up for a night that will tear Coalition’s roof off. Not only that, but we will also be putting on the most amazing production and lighting show, guaranteed to blow your brains out!
Wiley needs no introduction – the godfather of Grime is coming to Coalition to perform ‘Rolex’, ‘Numbers’, and new single ‘Skanking’. The trends that he’s spurred are countless and he’s one of the most in demand producers and MCs the UK has ever seen. In 1999, when Wiley saw his first major label release, ‘Nicole’s Groove’, made under the guise Phaze One, it was as the doors on garage as we knew it were closing. With his crew Pay As U Go, their debut single ‘Champagne Dance’ marked a shift towards a new sound. Two years down the line, when Wiley and fellow East Londoner Dizzee Rascal were championing their new crew, Roll Deep, running club stages across the UK, no one realized that this still unnamed sound would go on to shape and define a generation.
Where live performances are concerned, Wiley’s gone from headlining his own raves to tearing up the main stage at Glastonbury with Hot Chip, supporting the likes of Jay-Z and 50 Cent in concert and touring Australia, Singapore and beyond.
Yasmin first appeared on the scene when she was spotted by none other than Pharrell Williams during one of her DJ sets, which soon led to studio sessions with Labrinth (Tinie Tempah), Future Cut (Lily Allen, Devlin) and Shy FX (Dizzee Rascal), with whom she has collaborated on her debut album, due out in summer this year. She has founded her own successful club night, spun around the world for N.E.R.D., Taio Cruz and Eve, hosted her own stage at Wireless and played storming sets at Glastonbury and Ibiza Rocks. Fully established as a world-class spinner, Yasmin is now ready to make her mark as a fully fledged artist, singer and songwriter in her own right. Smart, stylish, funny and gorgeous, this dedicated music lover is one of the most exciting females to emerge from the UK underground in years.
