HIP HOP PRAISE BE Renfrew Ferry, Glasgow, Sat 6 Mar

This month sees the start of Praise Be, a new hip hop club at the Renfrew Ferry showcasing established names and unsigned acts from across the UK. Promoters Dan Beck and Brendan Pettit have pulled off a major coup by enlisting the almost peerless London duo Task Force to perform the launch night. Backed by DJ Louis Slipperz, Task Force’s emcees Chester P and Farma G blend gritty tales of London life with rhymes ensconced in the classic battle-rap mould, demonstrated best on their excellent Music From

the Corner LP.

‘The Praise Be night is going to be totally unpretentious - there’ll be no- one standing around just head-nodding all night,’ assures co-promoter Dan Beck. ‘Instead, we want to have a party atmosphere without all the static that you often get at other hip-hop nights.’

While a pair of Technics 1200 decks and a couple of microphones will initially comprise Praise Be’s prime weapons of choice, Beck is keen to widen the club’s musical scope. ‘We’d love to do stuff with live bands and other types of music, like electro. In the future, we want to bring over groups from the US as well as the best in Britain.’ Yet he’s keen for Praise Be to be first and foremost a platform for the abundant talent that exists in the central belt’s burgeoning hip hop scene. Joining Task Force on the evening’s impressive line-up is hotly-tipped Glasgow crew Surface Empire, along with DJ Digit and Praise Be’s resident spinner BRE (aka co-promoter

Pettit). (Hugh Leask)
