Urban Jam - Tinchy, Chip, Fazer, Dot Rotten, Angel and many more at Ricoh Arena 28th October

On Sunday the 28th of October, Urban Jam welcomes the Hip Hop, Grime, and R&B elite to the Ricoh Arena for an unmissable night which promises to be one of the biggest spectacles the Jaguar Hall has ever seen.

Headlining the event is a bona fide Star In The Hood- the one and only Tinchy Stryder. Having earned his stripes on the East London pirate radio scene as a member of Roll Deep and boss of the massively influential Ruff Sqwad performing with the likes of Dizzee and Wiley, Tinchy Stryder burst into the mainstream from the underground with the single 'Take Me Back', before topping the charts with his aptly titled N-Dubz collaboration 'Number 1'. Touring festivals including Kaya and Hackney Weekend whilst simultaneously working on two new albums, Tinchy is a busy man, and this rare appearance will be one of the first opportunities to witness him perform his new single 'Help Me' live. Don't miss out.

Joining Tinchy at the top of the bill is another member of rap royalty. Scoring a number 1 single at just 18, Chipmunk's confident flow and on-stage charisma have seen him work with some of the biggest names in music, from Chris Brown to Keri Hilson. Recently signed to the Grand Hustle label, Chip has been on the road with the legendary T.I, and looks set to succeed where so many other U.K artists have failed- cracking America. The past couple of years have seen him adopt a more mature and focused approach to his music, and this could well be the last chance to catch Chip before he takes to the world stage, as he continues a run of mixtapes with the hugely anticipated 'London Boy'.

Next up is Fazer. The N-Dubz rapper and multi-platinum producer launched his mission for solo stardom earlier in August, with the smash single 'Killer' racing up charts and receiving heavy radio play. Bringing the same presence that propelled his former group to international fame with an extra edge incorporating elements of dance and dubstep, expect to hear some brand new tracks from Fazer's hotly-tipped debut studio album. 

Having become of the most respected producers in Grime with tracks like 'Bazooka Riddim', Dot Rotten's instrumentals have been utilised by P Money, Wiley and Ghetts. After a pair of mixtapes, he officially made the move to rapping with a string of singles from his forthcoming album 'Voices In My Head', which have won him ratings from the underground and mainstream critics alike. Now on board with Tinchy's Takeover Entertainment, Dot Rotten's performance is sure to go off.

Urban Jam is proud to present Angel. The rising star has already worked with Giggs, Scorcher, and Chip to name but a few, using elements of R&B and Hip-Hop to create a uniquely soulful sound, and recently broke into the top ten with the single 'Wonderful'.

Also smashing up the Jaguar Hall with huge sets will be 1xtra favourite Charlie Sloth, as well as up-and-comer Benny Banks whose recent track featured Dappy. He's joined by rising local talent Dan-W, Mr Flybol, Influential Ent, Precha and Miss Coco Brown.      

Tickets are on sale now for just £20.00, with a chance to get up close and person in the Golden Circle for £32.50. This event is Urban Jam's biggest ever, and a real must for any lover of UK Urban music. On the 28th of October, you don't want to be anywhere else…
