Hip hop selection...

In the space of just a few years, Livin' Proof has evolved into one of London's most sought after hip hop nights.

Hosting a number of residencies, the four DJ line up pushed back the boundaries and hype up the crowd. Agreeing to take part in a special project, the collective will join forces with Clash for a one off show on Thursday night (July 5th).

Livin' Proof members The Last Skeptik and DJ Rags will play support sets before a live performance by Ryat.

Signed to Brain Feeder, the artist's new album 'Totem' is a beautiful mixture of cerebral electronics and genuine soul music. Set to perform live at intimate London venue the Waiting Room, the night acts as a showcase for some of the most groundbreaking sounds to emerge from hip hop in some time.

Livin' Proof member DJ Rags is clearly looking forward to the night, and recently sent the Clash team a guest mix. Opening with Ryat, the mix is aimed straight at the dancefloor but doesn't neglect the heads either.

Ending with AlunaGeorge, this is a deft, party selection which includes a few curveballs along the way.
