We have teamed up with promoter Doctor’s Order’s to give a rapper or emcee the chance to support Smif N Wessun on March 29 at Shoreditch hot spot XOYO.


XOYO is one of London’s most well-respected clubs. Delivering an unrivalled weekend soundtrack to the capital, the line-ups welcome global names alongside some of the best trailblazing artists on the circuit. Doctor’s Orders have been throwing unpretentious parties for fans of real music that care more about feeling good than looking good since 2005 so this is going to be a night not to be missed.


The dynamic duo of Tek and Steele known as, Smif N Wessun, are survivors of the game of hip-hop. Their street slick rhymes, personal chemistry, and ability to trade the mic smoother than a Hennie and Coke, are a testament to team work. With a fast break into success, legal trouble that forced a brief name change, and moving into the drive’s seat, from emcees to entrepreneurs, Tek and Steele have stood tall in the face of adversity as an impenetrable force.


Natives of Brooklyn, New York, Tek and Steele made their first appearance to the world of hip-hop on Black Moon’s 1993 debut, Enta Da Stage. The tracks, "Black Smif N Wessun" and "U Da Man" showcased their fierce and unrestricted lyrics.


To be in with a chance to win a support slot send 3 links of your music, along with your bio, picture, name and contact number to with the subject “Warm Up Competition”. You must be available on Tuesday 29 March 2016 to perform.


Deadline for entries is 5.00pm March 21.
