ms dynamite to launch 2010 comeback with headline gig

Having graced fans with a small, sold out run of live performances last year, Ms Dynamite has now confirmed what we were hoping – that these were the first steps of a long overdue comeback. Yep, one the UK’s finest urban artists is back in the game. Niomi McLean-Daley earned her spurs in the golden-era days of pirate radio and UK garage, leaping nimbly across into the mainstream with hits like ‘Boo’, ‘It Takes More’ and ‘Dy-Na-Mi-Tee’, eventually winning the Mercury Music Prize in 2002 for her debut album A Little Deeper. She’s been cooking up a storm with Gordon Ramsey on ITV’s ‘Hell’s Kitchen’, but the MC/singer is finally back where we love her the most: behind the mic.

Starting things as she means to go on, the London-born singer has been announced as headliner for one night of the Red Bull Music Academys month-long festivities. The February 12 event, hosted by Sin City and Hyponik at Brixton’s newly reopened Plan B, will see two rooms packed with bass-friendly, UK nurtured talents, including roots legend David ‘RamJam’ Rodigan, Sin City residents Hatcha & N-Type, Appleblim & Ramadanman, garage/dubstep heads El-B & J Da Flex, and the legendary jungle/d’n’b duo supreme, Kenny Ken and MC Skibadee. Expect to hear material both old and new from Ms Dynamite and, when her newest DJ Zinc collaboration ‘Wile Out’ drops, be ready to do just that. Welcome back boo.

Tickets are £8 in advance, £12 on the door.
