BOILER ROOM SECTION BOYZ + MANDEM | SHOT BY VICKY GROUT
With a queue halfway down Shoreditch, the downstairs to Red Gallery reached capacity within minutes. The evening was a collective of urban sounds, with Jarreau Vandal supplying us with the sounds of Baile Funk and L.A. beats, Faze Miyake, The Heavytrackerz and Section with that raw UK sound we know so well, and Virgil playing a whole range of genres. You could tell the night was a success as the room temperature became borderline unbearable by the time Novelist, Shorty and Jammer jumped on Faze’s and DJ Maximum’s set. It was from that moment on that the room became one big circle pit. Nearing the end of the night, Stormzy came out followed by Section Boyz, at which point you no longer cared whose sweat was on you or whose hair was in your mouth, but only that you had to shout the words to ‘Delete My Number’ as loud as you could.
