ELECTRIKAL: SHY FX FT. MC STAMINA MC

23:00 - 03:00 £12 (sold out) / £13 (sold out) / £15 / £16.50 / MOTD


SHY FX is the one of the original Ragga-Ruffneck pioneers from the 90s who bulldozed into the public eye with his stone cold classic Jungle anthem ‘Original Nuttah’. His light speed riddims married with rude boy rhymes create that unique SHY FX sound that we all know and love getting down to.  Joining the Ragga-jungle legend for his debut performance on our sound system is Electrikal favourite Stamina MC – vocalist, host and bad ass MC with a humongous stage presence who has performed for us in the past. The combination of these two musical giants will give the Electrikal speakers the rinse out they’ve been waiting for.  TICKETSFACEBOOK

The clues in the same for this one. An evening all about success and failure.

The event team have kindly reserved 20 seats for the Heriot-Watt gang so please can you post your name on the wall of this event to say that you are committed to coming along to this so we can keep an eye on actual numbers. 
If you can no longer attend please let us know – either by posting again or message the page. 

It’s a free event. At The Bongo Club on Cowgate. 

Keep an eye on event as we may organise a pre-meet before the event. Please invite anyone you think would be interested.
