‘Grime MC’: Jme’s latest project is a lesson in authenticity in the social media age
The seventh edition of Field Day will take place this year on Saturday 25th May. Based in the middle of the Hackney borough in east London’s Victoria Park, this time around they’ve invited a total of 83 acts to perform across eight stages, promising the appearance of a slew of thrilling talents both well-respected and up-and-coming. Dummy are media-partnering with Field Day once again this year, and since we can’t sit still as we wait for the weekend we’ve taken it upon ourselves to compile a celebratory mix. Stream some of our favourite tracks from some of our picks of the artists on the bill below, from the raw emotional material of How To Dress Well to the techno churnings of Karenn. It’s going to be a good one; see you down the front.
