This March, London’s independent music bible NOTION Magazine hosted a takeover of our infamous Boot Room venue in Camden for a memorable night of cutting-edge acts.
First up? Che Lingo, a hotly-tipped MC from South West London, who started out with performances at youth clubs in Clapham Junction. Since those early days, he’s steadily built up a loyal following who pack out his live shows to witness his heady blend of hip-hop, jazz, 90s West Coast and a few nods to London grime. Taking to the Boot Room stage, Che performed a selection of his best-known tracks and enticed fans to perform his signature dance.
Check out the interview and full performance video below.
Following Che Lingo’s set, the Boot Room played host to the remarkable South African singer-songwriter Nakhane, who performed dressed to kill in an all-red three-piece number, complemented by Docs. Nakhane is something of an LGBTQ+ trailblazer whose music career has flourished since relocating to London following death threats in his home country. His debut album You Will Not Die is full of inspirational and elegiac pop songs, delivered with an incredible voice that has earned him a spot on the New York Times ‘10 Artists to Watch in 2019’ list alongside Billie Eilish and Jade Bird.
Check out our interview and full performance video below.

While the rain poured outside, the heat rose inside the Boot Room, with two very special performances. Our friends at Brewdog and Jack Daniels kept the drinks flowing, while Mixcloud recorded the sets for your listening pleasure, here.
Each month we announce a new eclectic series of events at the DM’s Boot Room in Camden. The events are always free, so places are usually limited. Check out what’s on, and how to get your name on the list for future shows HERE.
