Skepta at Ally Pally

Skepta at Ally Pally

After his huge success at The Hyundai Mercury Prize, Skepta's biggest ever show was going to be nothing less than memorable.

As a homecoming show, it's always good to hear the words "burning car" during the first meeting! It means the artist has ambition and wants to make sure that this takes his performance to a new level and he didn't disapoint.

We installed a K2 main and delay system together with a straight line of 24 vertcally stacked and carioid arrayed SB28 subs across the front of stage. The stage was covered by a front line of 16 x HiQ wedges and APG 210 & UL118 subs as side fills for the main stage and also DJ Maximus's riser at the rear of the stage.

Production asked us to provide a complex playback system so that lighting and video could all be time code locked and yet still triggered by DJ Maximus. Together with Baggy Robinson and Richard Sillito we designed a playback system that gave Maximus tha ability to start and stop tracks whenever he wanted and everything would follow him. He could even do a reload at any point, whenever Skepta called for it.

Big thanks must go to David Davies at Lipfriend Rodd International who were the producers of the show and got us involved after our work with them over many years on the Mercury Prize shows.

All in all it was an amazing show and congratulations to Skepta and his team on their Mercury success and this amazing show.
