On Sunday 13th March, Attitude Inc. held an in-store event titled The Platform, the first of what is sure to be many of its kind. The event, organised by store manager Sean B, showcased a variety of local musical talent and will no doubt continue to do so in the future. A performance area was created at the back of the store, and the fairly small space was filled with friends and family of Sean, the store and the main performer, Kasimo.
Kasimo, a grime rapper very popular in the Colchester and Essex area, led the event. He performed a variety of his best hits (the majority of which feature on his newest EP, also titled The Platform) live, demonstrating his fantastic ability to communicate and interact with the crowd whilst performing his songs effortlessly. After a two year hiatus, Kasimo is coming back very strong and this new EP highlights his lyrical ability in spectacular fashion. He started off with a small hype session that the crowd wildly enjoyed, before moving onto his new tracks off of The Platform. Siris and Dream Mclean, also two very well-known acts in Colchester and Essex, both joined in at different stages to perform tracks with Kasimo, which only served to further excite the crowd. He was backed up all the way by DJ Just Craig, who took control of the decks. The mic was even handed to Kasimo’s two young boys, both of whom could rap their dad’s lyrics flawlessly, which the crowd lapped up. It was a very intimate performance, the whole crowd was in full support of Kasimo and you could see how much it meant to him to be back. It was fantastic to witness such a great group of friends and family having such a great time together.
This event was a brilliant starting point, and a great “Platform” for Kasimo to really announce his arrival back on the scene. The next event, scheduled to be very soon, will feature Monster Florence as lead performers. The link is below to check out the video.
Final Thought – be sure to check out Stars In Their Eyes, and Charged Up, two standout tracks from Kasimo’s new EP, The Platform, which will release very soon.
