The night’s line up comprised of: Hexagon Dubs, Treble Clef, Jampak, J Beatz, Dj Scope, Titasim, Mic Ty, Spooky, Spyro, Capo Lee and P Money.

Sunday Motion’s second event, their first was held at Rhythm Factory in Aldgate. Avid grime supporters gathered late yesterday evening for the love of the music. 

The gritty stage shows, the origins of the genre, never fails to disappoint.

“On a Sunday we will still smash it up” North London MC, Capo Lee preached to his hyped crowd during his set. 

The smoke filled, underground bar celebrated grass-root talent at it’s prime and ended the weekend with a bang. 

“There is more intimacy, I like the crowd interaction of the smaller shows. I like the hype and feeding of everyone’s energy” explained North London ‘Liff’ star, Capo. 

Tracksuits, trainers and head-bobbing under the red lighting. 

The chest pumping beats filled the room. 

‘Dancers, skankers, I see you…shake a leg’ Capo said over the mic. 


EVENT REVIEW: MODE FM'S MOTION @ THE NEST

Mode FM, which started in 2013, provides a stage for young people with aspirations of breaking into music. 

The online music platform centres of urban culture and UK-made music. 

The night got more rowdy… and sweaty, as the night went on.

The heat increased with Spyro, Capo Lee and P Money sprayed a mix of old school MC-ing and some more commercial grime with Capo Lee’s bangers, Liff and Mud. 

Capo – The Champ had the ravers banging their hands on the ceilings. 



He made a shout out to the ‘Snapchat crew’ at the beginning of his set.

As I caught up with after the show he explained, “all I saw as I stepped on stage was Snapchat lights in my face.” 

“Two guys tweeted me to tell me they were travelling all the way from Bristol just to see me perform… that’s mad’” 

After his performance, Capo Lee made sure showed his appreciation to his fans that had travelled for two hours to see him on a Sunday evening. 

“I love giving back our fans and listeners the opportunity to come and party with their 
avourite DJ’s and MC’s” said DJ Scope, one of the founders of the North London based 
radio station.

The event captured grime at its essence, the casual and versatility of the enjoyment of the grime sounds. 

“I think it went really well for a Sunday evening. Most people don’t like raving on a Sunday, so I am just grateful to everyone that made it. I was overwhelmed with feedback we received the next day and the requests for the next event which is already in the making.”
