Yesterday lunchtime we teamed up with Eastern Electrics to throw a rickshaw rave in Central London
And who better to play to the people of London than Croydon's first son, Skream. We met him at Oxford Circus for a warm up pint beforehand. He was understandably a little nervous, but determined to bring his A-game for the occasion.
Like any good party it was equal parts chaotic, hilarious and fun. After a bit of a warm up rave outside the Argyll Arms we had a few sharpeners and hit the road. We drove down Oxford Street, Carnaby Street, a bunch of one-way streets, we lapped Soho park before beelining for the BBC.
When we parked up outside Radio One security came over to tell us off for being too loud. "But I work here" pleaded Skream. "I know you do, but they're filming the news next door and they don't care" replied the security guard.
After that we rode down a couple more streets before pitching up, having some celebratory pints and posing for some group photos.
A lovely time was had by all.
Eastern Electrics takes place on 6th August, get tickets and more info here.
