AlunaGeorge, Wretch 32, Little Comets and Tribes were among the artists to perform at 2013’s Durex Intimate sessions. Rapper Wretch 32, back with fresh material, called his show at Birmingham’s Glee Club in September “the best show I’ve played in a long time”.
He was joined on stage by guests Jacob Banks and Shakka for a rendition of his hit single ‘Blackout’.
The rapper’s 11-song set also featured a cover version of Justin Timbalake and Jay Z’s ‘Suit And Tie’.
The setlist – which incorporated songs from ‘Wretchrospective’, ‘Black And White’ and a few choice cuts of upcoming album ‘Growing Over Life’ – was a “journey of life”, as the rapper described it.
London duo AlunaGeorge performed a tiny show at London’s 100 Club back in August.
The gig came shortly after the pair released their debut album ‘Body Music’. Their set included a crowd-pleasing cover of Montell Jordan’s 1995 hit ‘This Is How We Do It’.
Before leaving the stage, singer Aluna Francis told the crowd they had been “awesome” and said it had been “a sexy night”.
Tribes brought the current series of Durex’s Intimate Sessions to a close on October 9 as they played a special gig in West London’s Bush Hall.
Lucky competition winners saw the Camden band play a rare acoustic set, stripping back songs from their debut album ‘Baby’ as well as tracks from 2013’s ‘Wish To Scream’ LP.
Late on in the gig singer Johnny introduced a cover of The Kinks’ ‘Sunny Afternoon’, he explained their choice of tribute, saying: “Everyone loves The Kinks, right? I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t.”
