Akil / Louis Logic / Diversion Tactics
The well suited Boileroom in Guildford played host to one of the livest shows we’ve attended for a while (10.10.10). Akil from Jurassic 5 came with all the energy you’d expect from some one half his age! He got the crowd to chant, keep their hands in the air, start a b-boy circle and even invited emcees on stage for a quick Cipher - all within his actual performance which consisted of both more recent solo stuff and also classic J5 material (he even rapped some of the other members parts, complete with impersonations!).
For us, this show certainly had the best vibe of the weekend. Louis Logic was extremely animated. This made for fascinating viewing although some of the young, student crowd seemed unsure of the sincerity of his humorous lyrical content, he provided a perfect warm-up for Akil to spread the excited, electric feeling you should get at every show! Infectious!
