The live music was kicked off by DJs R3wire and Varski, who put on a spectacular show and played a pounding, high energy mix. When Tinie and Charlsey took over, the music switched to a contemporary blend of house, pop and grime, with the crowd in raptures.
Tinie Tempah, with seven UK number one singles to his name, is the most decorated rap artist in the country. His Platinum-selling album ‘Disc-Overy’ launched him to the very top of the British hip-hop tree and his second album, ‘Demonstration,’ has kept him there. Tinie has recently released his latest album, ‘Youth.’ But the Brit, MOBO and Novello award-winning artist is no stranger to the turntables and alongside DJ Charlesy, has spun the decks at top London clubs and taken up residencies in Ibiza.
Earlier in the evening, Racecourse ambassador Jim Crowley enjoyed a victory aboard hot favourite Shaaqaaf for Oaks-winning trainer John Gosden, who pleased those brave enough to back him at just 1-4. The feature race on the card was the EBF Stallions Breeding Winners Fillies’ Stakes, which was won by Angel of Darkness under Callum Shepherd. Charles Hills’s charge stayed on well in a quickly run affair to triumph by a length.
The next Three Friday Nights fixture will take place on 9 June, when Pete Tong will spin the decks to an already sold-out crowd. Sigma will round out the series on 16 June and limited tickets still remain to see the north-London act.
