Capital Xtra Brunch N Beats
— 5 Aug 2017, 15:11
Something big this way comes. There is just one week to go until Capital Xtra's Brunch 'n' Beats summer spectacular with EE Pay as You Go.
Capita Xtra's DJs will be hosting the event from midday and dropping the freshest and most iconic tracks in R&B, Grime, Hip Hop and more for your listening pleasure. So, who will be taking the stage next Saturday?
Ras Kwame has been spinning tracks since the early 90's and his illustrious career has taken him to some of the biggest clubs and radio stations in the country. Ras has also DJ'd for some of the most legendary artists in Hip Hop; including, the Fugees, Public Enemy and Wu Tang Clan. Today, Ras hosts the late night Reggae and Dancehall show for Capital Xtra.
Abrantee has established himself as one of the most recognisable voices and personalities on the Urban and African music scene. This award winning radio host has your drive time sounds sorted with the weekday 4-8pm slot with Capital Xtra, and on Saturday's he's bringing the Afrobeats with the late night show to take your weekend vibes to the next level.
Manny Norté is one of the most respected and enduring figures in R&B and Hip Hop. This MOBO award winning producer and presenter has also DJ'd for the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce and Jay-Z. Manny currently runs two hugely popular radio shows with Capital Xtra - weekday mornings from 9am and The Norté Show, every Sunday from 7pm.
Toni Phillips doesn't just run two of the most loved radio shows on Capital Xtra (weekday afternoons and Sundays from 1pm) but she's also a successful club DJ and has performed at some of the UK's biggest festivals - Isle of Wight, Bestival, and Glastonbury to name a few!
Yinka Bokinni quickly turned her passion for music into a successful career that took her from the breakfast show on RinseFM to Capita Xtra's weekday evening and Saturday afternoon radio host. Yinka throws down the freshest tracks you never knew you needed so badly and she mixes it up with some all-time classics.
Tim Westwood needs little introduction. He held the number one Urban show on BBC Radio1 and 1Xtra for almost 20 years and has worked with some of the biggest artists on the planet. Westwood has enjoyed a lengthy and successful career in both music and television - remember Pimp My Ride?! Even now, Tim Westwood is still recognised as one of the leading UK Urban music DJs and continues to play to clubs and festivals all around the world. Capital Xtra wouldn't be the same without "The Big Dawg's" Saturday night Hip Hop show.
EE will also be adding to the fun with a glitter make-up station, a braid bar and a GIF photo booth so that you can look back on all of the day's action with your friends. If you're feeling lucky then be sure to take part in the all-day competitions, which culminates with an incredible party brunch trip to Dubai!
If that wasn't enough, our amazing traders will also be serving up the finest food and drink for you to enjoy all day - burgers, curry, wings, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, crépes, sushi and so much more. If you want it then we've got it.
There are two tickets currently available to buy - you can get in on all of the action from midday with a Day Ticket or you can drop by from 6pm with a Late Ticket. And, if you can't make it down to Boxpark next weekend then fret not, you can listen to Tim Westwood's live set from 7pm on Capital Xtra!
