The Top 5 ‘Fire In The Booth’ Sessions With Charlie Sloth

Posted: Thursday 21 September 2017

Charlie Sloth has become a respected name within the hip hop and grime scene over the years, known for discovering the best new talent and giving it a platform through his shows on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra. His ‘Fire In The Booth’ sessions are a rite of passage for many artists, so we decided to take a look back at five of the best.

Mic Righteous
During his third stint on Sloth’s ‘Fire In The Booth’ Mic Righteous not only blew listeners away with his hard-hitting lyrics, but he also dropped  the announcement of his long-awaited debut album Dreamland. Nearly a year after its release, Mic Righteous has become one of the most hard working and respected artists in the game, even working with fashion extraordinaire Vivienne Westwood to highlight the effects of climate change.

Fekky
Fekky is a familiar face within the UK grime scene and you only need to look at his list of collaborations to see why, with Dizzee Rascal, Stormzy, Chip, Skepta and more featuring on tracks past and present. It’s debut album El Clasico that’s really shone the spotlight on the MC though, and his appearance on ‘Fire In The Booth’ back in April is a brilliant example of everything he’s about.
