Belsonic 09 - Dizzee Rascal
Describe in a tweet: Even Da Boys In Da Corners goes Bonkers for the Rascal when it's Showtime.
What went down: The crowd are chanting his name before he even gets to the stage. We're that anxious. The sight of waving crutches proves that he can make the lame walk. It's a mini-retrospective, old stuff like Jus A Rascal mixed with new favourites. Sirens is particularly bass-heavy and pounding while Fix Up, Look Sharp is as fresh as ever as he manages that difficult task of mixing the credible and the popular. Unashamed pop magic sits easily side by side with the old skool grime.
The highlight: Highlight: for us old-timers in particular, the old stuff, for everyone, it has to be the trio of singles with us all going bonkers for Bonkers.
