BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2014 | Performances

bbc-radio-1-2014

One of the UK’s biggest music festival’s took place this weekend as BBC Radio 1 kicked of their annual Big Weekend in Glasgow. The line up was mammoth to say the least with acts including Katy Perry, Tinie Tempah, Calvin Harris, Kings of Leon, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams and One Direction to name a few.

New comers such as Sam Smith and London Grammar lit up the ‘In New Music We Trust’ stage but I still feel like a lot of urban music was overlooked this year or maybe it was just because none of great quality was being produced. Check out some of the performances after the cut.

Tinie Tempah decided to hit up Charlie Sloth’s Fire In The Booth recently to lay some bars. It seems like Tinie had something to prove by sending shots for various rappers in the UK scene.

Will this spark some replies or merely go down as an act of bravado? I still feel we are yet to hear the best of Tinie Tempah since his “Happy Birthday EP” in 2012.

Tinie Tempah – Demonstration | Album Snippets

One of the UK’s biggest rap exports, Tinie Tempah is gearing up for the release of his hugely anticipated sophomore album Demonstration. We’ve heard two singles from the project already that were completely different, ‘Trampoline’ and ‘Children of the Sun’ and to be honest neither hugely impressed me.

With that being said there are 12 more tracks yet to be heard so I will reserve my opinion until I’ve heard the LP in its entirety. November 4th is the date.

If you wanna hear a teaser of whats to come pop the lid…
