Hope Loyle Carner is there in 2019. Missed him in 2017 because I was planning on seeing him at Bestival... then when they closed the Bestival site for a couple of hours on the Sunday his set got the chop. Really liking his new one

 

+1 For Loyle. Also missed him in 2017 due to clashing with RTJ

I thought the production on Spaceman was off the scale, but wasn’t all that impressed by Octavian’s lyrical content or delivery or anything. Will stick with him though because he’s clearly got an ear for a banger.

Ye, i agree, lyrically he isn't exactly ground breaking, but i love his gravely, off beat delivery. He so flexible as well, from slow songs to grime/drill bangers. Soon as i heard 'Party Here', my ears pricked up and been following him since.

Seeing as RTJ have now got a new track out and the 4th album can't be far behind, what chance of them being back on the farm? Ideally in a night time slot this time.

In an ideal world someone will persuade Q-Tip to do one more 'last ever' Tribe set to replace the one he had to miss last time, but I somehow doubt it.

I can't see it happening next year. They were there in 2015 and 2017. 2015's performance on West Holts was great but the Pyramid time slot didn't do them any favours in terms of audience.

Would love to see Tribe headline WH.

What was the issue with the 2017 performance? I was at both 2015 and 2017 and don't recall there being any kind of drop off in audience or performance from a personal level.

I know what you mean but they're getting pretty big and if the new album does well they'd get a big crowd.

I also think they realise what it does for their profile and would want to do it.

I think the issue with 2017 was the Craig David audience beforehand and a large number of people mainly there for Corbyn afterwards.

Personally I really enjoyed it though.

Yeah same, I stayed after Corbyn and then hung around for Katy Perry if my memory serves me correctly? I thought they were really good to be fair, although I was incredibly high by that point so they could very well have been an absolute car crash.

Yeah, you are right. Lyrically there isnt a great deal going on but the range of styles that he cycles through is impressive and it all just seems to work. The voice makes it in a lot of ways.

He can flow a little bit too, he's a bit like Travis Scott in that regard where he floats about crooning for a lot of the time and only hits a flow on occasion. But when it hits, it's super-effective. I'm thinking about Sleep as an example and also on A2's Flair.

The spoken word bits work really well live for the song to song transitions before another dose of energy is injected.

That’s true about Trav actually. It’s mostly his beats I like too but there are just those moments where he hits a sweet spot. Will dig deeper into Octavian’s stuff to try and get a bit more of that.

The thing about spoken word def sounds interesting in joining up the songs so I’m hoping to catch him at some point.

Feb dates in Manchester and London, March in Bham went on sale today as part of a European tour. Not sure about whether there are any left. Think summer festivals next year are inevitable so will hold off for that.

For me it was a combination of time, location, acts before and after, my buzz and audience. Missing Loyle at  back of my mind may have also contributed. Don't get me wrong they were still good but the WH performance had a bigger party vibe and a better slot at like 8ish if I remember rightly.

2015 was ace also because it coincided with a nice evening emerging after an earlier downpour.

Also in 2015 they were quite firmly the world's premier rap group whereas 2017 was unquestionably the year of Migos.

1. The Chase (feat. Kadhja Bonet)
2. Headlow (feat. Norelle)
3. Tints (feat. Kendrick Lamar)
4. Who R U?
5. 6 Summers
6. Saviers Road
7. Smile / Petty
8. Mansa Musa (feat. Dr. Dre & Coco Sarai)
9. Brother’s Keeper (feat. Pusha T)
10. Anywhere (feat. Snoop Dogg & the Last Artful, Dodgr)

Tracklist out for Oxnard now. Still think Tints is garbage, and I'm sad to see Bubblin isn't gonna feature on it, but some of these featured names - and no doubt the producers still to come - got me pretty excited for this.

agreed Tints was a bit of a flop - but VERY excited for this album, although the nxworries stuff he did with knxwledge is (IMHO) the best stuff hes put out
