"Over the past few years, the music that has come to be known as UK grime has developed into the most vital music created by urban Black youth in London. Using the same DIY spirit as early American hip hop pioneers, DJs, producers and MCs are creating a unique statement that speaks to the kids in and around the council estates (projects) of London and beyond. Like American hip hop artists, these British artists tell tales from their hood as only they can, putting London's inner city life in sharp focus. And like hip hop, the flavor and energy is undeniably hot, Black, and straight out of the hood. The creative electricity that the collaboration between hip hop and grime would spark could open up endless possibilities. In the spirit of the many years of cross-pollination that have gone on between the UK and the US, we aim to solidify this link between the two musical genres through the HEAT event. In the classic film Wild Style, Fab Five Freddy helped introduce hip hop to the masses by bringing uptown vibes to the downtown community in the form of a free concert at the East River Park’s Amphitheater. We will take that same landmark location and bring London to NYC in the form of a truly historic collaboration called HEAT. The lineup of talent will feature some of the biggest artists to emerge on both the American and UK scenes"
