Yxng Bane’s blistering London show demonstrates a star on a meteoric rise

The past few years have been rather mad for Yxng Bane. From his first show at Birthdays in Shoreditch when he was so nervous that he made the driver go back around the block several times, before he would go in the venue), to selling out his headline slot at Omeara last year in minutes (where he was then joined on stage by Wiley), and now with his millions of streams on a hefty back catalogue of slick afro-bashment infused bangers, the young star is strapped in on a meteoric rise to success.

And if there was any doubt of that, his sold-out headline show at the Islington Assembly Hall was quick to stamp it out. With what seemed liked a revolving door of his musical pals on the side of stage, and the charisma of somebody with a decade more experience: Yxng Bane’s London show was an absolute triumph. Here’s what went down.
