SlimoWeekly: Back with a Bang

After some months focusing on content such as SM Origins, The Line Up Part 1 & Part 2 and even hosting our first event (The Reunion Party) of the year/since lockdown, it is time to bring back SlimoWeekly. What a month to bring this playlist up to date, we have seen the announcement of events and gigs and the release of many new bangers. This weekend is jam packed with shows and events so let's get straight to it.

Tonight sees Iconic Waves bring their first event 'Finesse' to The Sound House, Dublin. Things will be kicking off at 10pm and you'll want to be there early so you don't miss out on all the wonderful acts. This fun filled night will see Jeorge II return to the stage alongside Plantain Papi, Kemdee and Gliders. There will be plenty of DJs on the night to set the tone and keep you going including; Jesse, Mstobii, Dacosta, OJ and many more. If that's not enough for you, Smiley will also be treating the audience to a live drum set. Irelands favourite MC, Sika will be there to set the vibes. There are some tickets still available online, you don't want to miss this one.


Following on from the success of the event in August 2021, GB Eventz has teamed up with TNT to bring us Nollywood pt 2 in Vela Restaurant. This sold out extravaganza has a Y2K theme so be expecting to hear some African classics and see some throwback fashion (although this is not dress code).


Your favourites are back at Bow Lane Social on Saturday night, 28th May 2022, for back to back Afrobeat, Hip Hop and R&B. That’s right, it’s time for Kamil’s monthly event, 50:50. With music from RTÉ’s DJ Wax and an age limit of over 21s (women) and 23s (men), this event is truly for “the grown and sexy”. The last of the tickets are available on Eventbrite, get yours now to avoid disappointment.


The weather is getting warmer and you know what that means, it’s time for day events to start consuming our lives again! This Sunday 29th May 2022, sees Black and Irish collaborate with R3D's House to bring us the very first instalment of The Cook-out. Kicking off at 2pm in Peggy Kelly's, Dublin, this BBQ experience will be the perfect way to end your weekend on a high. A ticket for The Cook-out costs €22.20, this will get you entry, food and drink (free drink is only available 2-3pm). What more could you want, good food, refreshing drinks and music from some of the finest DJs.


With day events kicking off, be sure to also keep an eye on License to Party who are coming back with another Day Party happening next weekend, bank-holiday Sunday, 5th June 2022.


We have all of these amazing gigs and events to keep us going but we can't forget about the music! This week sees a release emerge from Jungle Beam Studios. 'Crease' brings us back to back verses that flow seamlessly from 4 extremely talented rappers; Skripteh, Smilez, Jah 1 and AO.


Denise Chaila features on Ed Sheeran's '2 Step' while Dbo collaborates with Lethal Bizzle and Giggs for 'Dapper Dan'. We are seeing a lot of collaborations throughout our playlist including Sean X and Hudis on 'Outside' and Huggie B3ar ft. Young Daz on 'Money on My Mind'.
