Grime torchbearers Elijah and Skilliam have been known to moonlight as r’n’b DJs on Rinse FM, and this Friday February 15 will see them play an r’n’g – rhythm and grime – set at London clubnight Special Request.
R’n’g was the London genre that could have been – a blend of future-looking grime sounds and r’n’b vocalists that never quite took off, despite Terror Danjah, Scratcha DVA and others being deep into it. For a taste of what to expect, Elijah and Skilliam have contributed an r’n’g mix to Special Request’s series, featuring sweetboy classics like Ruff Sqwad and Roll Deep’s ‘Together’, Dizzee’s ‘I Luv U’ remix and N.A.S.T.Y. Crew’s ‘Girls Luv Nasty’. Stream it below, and for more information on the night – which takes place at The Waiting Room, Stoke Newington – click here.
