Clash magazine hosted their issue 111 launch party at Miranda, Ace Hotel Shoreditch on April 24th inviting the most exclusive influences, photographers and promoters. Doors opened at 7.30pm, gathering a que outside which included huge, bold personalities.
Inside the bold pink neon lights popped, Clash issue 111 magazine piles filled the venue front room with 4 different covers to pick from. Octavian, Dolly Parton, Lil Pump and Lizzo filled the front of the glossy pages with the majority favouring the natural coloured Octavian cover shot by Adama Jalloh.
The night started off with a projection of Clash montaged videos delivering visual sensations to the public, inviting them into the Clash lifestyle. The Clash DJs performed first, pumping the crowd just enough for the first act.
Brother Leo (above) hit the first performance off, being his first time back on stage after five years he didn’t shy away, performing his feel good melodies throughout the Miranda Ace Hotel basement. Performing singles such as Strangers On An Island, Shine and Push Up Leo and his band mixed the music vibe of the night up and demonstrated the authenticity of the Clash launch party.
Ojerime (above) sang beautifully after, wearing the full reflective tracksuit by Places + Faces there was no one looking away. Performing Greasy and I Know Now from her 4U album of 2018 the crowd was hypnotised by the slick sexy nature of her music.
The next Clash artist to perform was Kadiata (above), having a hit new single with JJ called Under the Sun and another popular tune with Sam Wise called When the Sun Comes Out everyone in the room knew his beats. Performing both his sensational songs he mixed it out with some new music including On Tap, Margherita and the most recent Pornhub Freestyle being released this year.
The finalising acts consisted of Last Night In Paris (above) and Big Zuu both continued the press party with positive vibes. Last Night In Paris performed Soiree, a 2018 single and their latest release Flex & Finesse.
