Ahead of the Bloc Weekend Festival, I went to the free grand opening of London’s new super music venue London Pleasure Gardens.

As I entered the venue, it was hard to believe I was in my home town borough of Newham in East London, the site feels like I was at Glastonbury but at the river side. LPG boasts a massive 20 acres and roughly a capacity of 27,000 people. I do recommend that you don’t wear your best creps (trainers lol) and carry a bandana or scarf because its very dusty, especially if the wind blows the dust in your face.

Dome

In the pic above, you can see the Dome in the distance.

Inside the Dome

In side the Dome the size of the arena feels like it has a capacity of roughly of 1000 people. the size is like the main room in most night clubs.

Main stage

The Main stage is like a concert arena. I ain’t even gonna try to guess how much people can squeeze up in there lol, all I can say is its HUGGGGEEEE lol.

Funfair

fun fair

LPG has loads of bars and food stalls situated through the site. I tried authentic Caribbean Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas with salad, I was really impressed, spot on. It was reasonably price at £6.50. Other attractions was the fun fair rides, clothes stalls etc. I didn’t get a close up on the floating cocktail bar, I think most of the site was closed due to still building for the Bloc Weekend.

Behind the main arena

There was another tent arena behind the main arena, the bass from that tent was booming throughout the site lol.

Floating Cocktail bar in the distance

In the pic above is the floating cocktail bar for in distance, nice scenery.

Better view of the cocktail bar

Another pic of the floating cocktail bar above, I think roughly half the site was out of bound due to building work.

AS YOU ARE WELL AWARE, BLOC FEST 2012 HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO OVER CROWDING.

I was there last night (Friday 6th 2012) just after 23:20. I was roughly  there for 20 minutes. I was at the artist accredition gate and it was closed. I rang one of organisers at Bloc to find out what was happened and was informed “due to over crowding, the gate is closed for health and safety reasons, and we should be opening it shortly”. by this time I saw it was quarter to midnight and sussed it might be all long to see Snoop Dogg, so I decide to cut loose (leave the site).

I was really gutted because I really wanted to deejay and I also heard Snoop was gonna bring out 50 Cent. I’m screwing KMT!!!

I really hope Bloc still carries on, because their events are always spot and hope to play for them in the future.

Emerging from the UK Grime scene, Badness has caused a stir over the last few years. From first hitting the scene with his club smash ‘Dem Dem’ which made it on to BBC 1xtra’s playlist and it is still till this day having the same impact which it did when it was first played late 2005!!! Badness has moved from strength to strength, establishing himself firmly in the UK Dubstep/Grime scene. He’s more known for his Dancehall style which not a lot of people can match in the UK, yet not alone Globally. His Mc’ing skills is varied from slow baritone to fast rapid fire, and if that don’t amaze you, he also provided his singing talents on Wretch 32’s single ‘Ina Di Ghetto’ which also  featured ‘The Movement’ and former’ N.A.S.T.Y Crew’ member Ghetts aka Ghetto. NT: How did do you come up with name ‘Badness Imangie’ ?

BADNESS: The name badness came about when I was 7 because I performed at my neighbours 12th birthday party and her cousin Mc Foxy (Jungle Mc) from Manchester heard me and said “your  name’s Jonny Badness your to bad”.

NT: So what made you decide to started doing Rave/Dance Promotions?

BADNESS: Been doing that since I was 5 years old, use to go on love Injecktion sound system with Corporal Billy and big John. They use to bring me on Sound System back in the day, when they use to clash with Saxon Sound. The main reason why I started my own promoting my dances because I got powers in the dance and plus there ain’t no Grime events. The music ranges from Grime, Dubstep to Funky House. The name of my events is called ‘Nitemare‘! The rave was held yesterday (23/12/09), shout out to Vagabondz, to all the artist that pass through, Skepta, Jammer, Bruza, Lil Narsty, Dj Hatcha, Sir Spyro, Dj Cameo, Dizzle Kid, Logan Sama, True Tiger, P Money etc! And last but not definitely least the ravers, BECAUSE WAS IT JAMMMMM!!!!!!!

NT: Before meeting up with Terror Danjah, what was you doing to promoting your music?

BADNESS: I Was mainly on my own grind more doing conscience bashment music again instead of all the negative hype stuff. But when I got sent to jail I kinda got side track. So I came back in to the Grime scene to up lift the youths and kinda got caught up in the hype.

NT: You have released a few mix cd’s including ‘Lava Continues vol1, Pa/Eruption, but what motivated to do free mix cd and also controversially naming it ‘3 Mason’?

BADNESS: Well I’ve released stuff in Birmingham, also what never reach out, due to a lack of promotion, and door’s been closed by the likes of  like Wiley and dem man were trying to deny me from the scene due to fear of my True Talent and I took his first love from him (Wiley’s first girl friend).

NT: What’s 2010 saying for Badness Imangie?

BADNESS: GREAT STUFF MORE LIFE GOOD OVER EVIL GUIDANCE! look out For my gyalbum out late 20/10  entitled ‘True Talent” (T/T)
