On Saturday 16th August the BBC airwaves were taken over by the Crème de la crème of the D+B scene as we joined together for the first ever BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra D+B soundclash. Making history and marking 12 years of BBC 1Xtra, the battle was hosted by Mistajam and Crissy Cris.
“With our troops ready, we’re certainly fired up for the D&B Soundclash with BBC Radio1 & 1Xtra this weekend. It’s a pleasure to go head to head with what can only be described as the Crème de la crème of the scene.
Tough guys from Viper, Shogun’s shoegazers, and Ram’s cockney thugs are no match for our skilled surgeons. Armed with Weapons of Mass Creation we’ll blow the gaff wide open with soul and style!
Jokes beef aside, the D&B scene is fresher than ever and it’s amazing for the BBC to recognise this enough to conduct such an exciting showcase. The diversity of the four labels involved (and so many others) is what keeps our scene crisp with an array of new talent and releases, all of which have their own individual stamp. So it’s more than just a soundclash – it’s a celebration of the strength of the scene. We’re all winners, whatever the outcome… except we will be the winners… obvs.”
The clash consisted of 5 tailored rounds where #TeamHOSPITAL, Ram Records, Shogun Audio and Viper Recordings brought their troops with force to battle for the title.
Round 1 – Team Anthem – Label Boss London Elektricity drops a minimix of classic Hospital bangers to kick off the show.
Round 2 – Quick Mix – Metrik 6 min mix
Round 3 – Secret Guest Minimix – With Fred V & Grafix on the selection TeamHOSPITAL drew for the mighty Noisia!
Round 4 – Bootleg Round – S.P.Y smashes the bootleg round making his mark on Ten Walls – Walking With Elephants.
Round 5 – All Star Mix – Exactly what it says on the tin. All stars uniting with MC Dynamite on mic duties.
London Elektricity provided some epic Dad dancing….
The whole team had a fantastic time and regardless of the outcome it was a fantastic showcase to be apart of and a great way to celebrate the strength of the D+B scene at the moment. It was a win for #TeamHOSPITAL but of course we were ecstatic to walk away with the cup!
