Let’s get ready to ruuuuuuuuumble! 

Get ready for the ulti­mate sound clash as Hip Hop beats of New York’s Block­parties battle with the heavy­weight Reg­gae bass sound of London.

Rep­res­ent­ing LDN and hop­ing to deliv­er a knock­out blow with his trade­mark bass­bin-quak­ing sounds is none oth­er than Dav­id Rod­igan. Rod­igan is the ori­gin­al Reg­gae select­or and sound clash cham­pi­on and will be swinging hard from the first bell with his selec­tion of clas­sic (upper) cuts.

Rep­res­ent­ing NYC:

Rod­igan will be going toe-to-toe with NYC’s Hip Hop beats in the form of tag-team trio The Jungle Broth­ers. The pion­eer­ing NYC rap­pers wrote the rules, fus­ing furi­ous Hip Hop beats with Funk, Blues, Jazz and House. Their live show will fea­ture everything from early Hip-House clas­sic ‘I’ll House You’ to time­less Hip Hop cuts like ‘True Blue’ and ‘Jungle Brother.’

The roy­al rumble is com­pleted with the King of New York him­self, Huey Mor­gan. The BBC Radio 6 Music Block Party cham­pi­on is one of the few who can join the dots between Disco, Funk, Hip Hop and Reg­gae, and will be limber­ing up to deliv­er a knock-out blow in the heart of his adop­ted city, London.

All the ring­side action takes place at indigo at The O2 in Lon­don on Novem­ber 17.
