On Saturday, Relentless Energy drink joined forces with its prolific advocates, Professor Green, Zane Lowe and Pure Love for an exclusive gig strictly for VIP's and competition winners.
London hit-maker Pro Green, DJ Zane Lowe and band Pure Love carefully handpicked a roster of fresh artists who all took to the stage at one of London's most prestigious venues, Old Billingsgate Market.
New York rapper Knytro set the stage alight with his classic hip-hop sound and his energising stage presence. Shouting out, 'I love hip-hop, yes I do...I love hip-hop, how about you?' in between tracks from his highly acclaimed mix tape 'Project Harpoon'. The rapper who has been shown plenty of love from one of the night's headliner's Zane Lowe, later made room for label chum Dream Mclean who also delivered some tracks from his 'Weatherman' EP.
Hailing from Essex and signed to Chase & Status’ MTA imprint, Dream Mclean is one of the most exciting hip-hop and grime inspired vocalists in the UK right now. Bouncing around the stage in a bright red hat, he blasted out a cover of Disclosure's 'White Noise', giving his own touch to the big hit. Relentless cups with none other than the sweet carbonated energy drink itself flowed around the room whilst the crowd continued to get amped-up to the Essex boy's performance.
Later, four-piece band Clean Bandit added some fuel to the fire with their edgy sound where the combination of drums, bass, sax and strings worked at its very best. The British band who are set to go on tour with Bastille next month, offered special treat of their up-tempo tracks 'Dust Clears' and 'A&E' which were very well received.
Following this, all hell broke loose with Zane Lowe giving the crowd some superb fist-pumping classic hip-hop, dance and house tunes.
Last but not least the headlining act and face of Relentless, Pro Green performed his much-loved hits including 'Oh My God' and sing-a-long track 'Just Be Good To Green'. Green's slot was a welcome return to the stage in advance of the rap star's upcoming third album, 'Growing Up in Public'.
Overall, a great night of Relentless talent!
