Night Raids found that one by one the living dead of London’s skate and music scenes walked into a warehouse at the Union Car Park in Blackfriars and had one of the most rocking night’s of the year. Chris Taylor (Rogue State) warmed up preceedings in the main room with a mega mix of mashed up indie until the wonderful Talita Twoshoes sprinkled her thrash bag all over the gaff to wake up the dead heads.
DJ Hers rammed a wonderful bunch of filthy Hip Hop into the speakers. Katie P rocked some classics in the Kerrang! Arch before Chase and Status filled the Etnies room with some sublime DnB and Dubstep. Dan Greenpeace finished the place off with a trademark mash up of classic cuts and it’s here where the Howling started.
Big shout out’s to our special guests DJ’s Rout and SGT Rolfy from Enter Shikari who brought the rave to the warehouse before the mighty El Hornet and MC Verse from Pendulum sparked a mosh pit and blew the roof off!
Members of the RT and ID Crews came down to paint the place with Tobes.
The night was completed with a heavily funk laden Ed Pitt from Scenario who dropped the classic party bombs for the final hour when the Red Bull kicked in to make this one hell of a night!
Every costume, every drip of blood and make up will be remembered until this Hallowed evening comes around again in 2009. Thanks so much if you came down for this one!
Look out for the annual Crossfire Xmas Jam & Party on Saturday December 13th.
