Greetings from The Roundhouse in Camden, North London where sounds are being checked, merchandise is being set out, cables are being plugged in and people are being briefed in anticipation of tonight's 1Xtra Electric Proms gig with Dizzee Rascal headlining. I've already checked out the soundcheck and we're in for a real treat. Dizzee, a string orchestra, horn section, backing singers and a full live band:
I'm going to be 100% live from the venue alongside my girl Max bringing you the build up and anticipation for the show then (here's the best bit) we'll be bringing you the show LIVE as it happens direct to your speakers!
I also get the honour of DJ'ing the warm up for the half an hour before Dizzee comes on stage. Check my view of the empty auditorium:
You can interact with us tonight with our chat widget via the Electric Proms minisite here and make sure you're locked in tonight from 7pm!
Number 1 artist Chipmunk passed through the show last night to breakdown his new album "I Am Chipmunk." Listen below to find out what happened when his album leaked last week, the story behind his next single and most importantly, who does his ironing.
If you're a Chipmunk fan, you won't be disappointed.
This weeks Jam Hot record comes courtesy of Drum n Bass producer Blame. He's remixed and refixed the Jackson 5 classic "I Want You Back".
Listen back to last nights show!.
