An excuse for a party at the best of times but this is also a celebration of the release of the new mixtape from L.Man. An upandcomer who is kicking it big time right now with no sign of relenting…
What can be said about SkinnyMan that you haven't heard as a rumour already? One of the founder members of the Bury Cru, Skinny left the fold to start up the legendary Mud Fam with Chester P and Mongo before eventually going out on his own and releasing his stunning solo 'Council Estate of Mind'. Highbury bred, if Leeds born, Skinny has always been a stalwart of the London scene. Whether live or on wax he always brings a unique vitality to whatever he gets involved in. Even jail. Whilst we waited on agonized tenterhooks as his album was put on hold, the man clearly showed that he was also a master of suspense.
L.Man is blowing up right now. With his latest mixtape 'New Age Army' on Lovedough Recordings making waves all over the industry, tonight is a chance to celebrate it's release and all the hard graft that this south London storyteller has been putting in during the last 5 years. With plaudits from Westwood to Lady Sov, L.Man's mixture of grime, rap and slow jams seems to have him set to follow in Dizzee Rascal, Kano and Sway into the big time.
Throw in some VERY special guests on the night into the mix and we think Soundcrash have pretty much got it down.
