Award-winning DnB group SaSaSaS has been one of the most sought-after acts in the business since first performing together in 2014. A Drum & Bass supergroup of sorts, SaSaSaS comprises MCs Harry Shotta, Shabba D and DJ Phantasy. The original lineup also included late MCs Stormin’ and Skibadee, whose departure has left an unifiable void in the scene but has also inspired the continued success of SaSaSaS in tribute to its absent founding members. Following a sold-out show in London in 2022, the trio bring their ‘Scarefest’ to one of the capital’s favourite late-night venues in XOYO. Promising a frightfully fantastic night of UK Bass, Drum & Bass, Jungle, and everything in between, Shotta, Shabba D and Phantasy are steadying themselves for one of London’s standout Halloween events.

Ahead of their ‘Halloween Scarefest’ at XOYO London on Friday, 27th October, SaSaSaS serve up their top 5 MC-focused DnB heaters to get you ready for a night of ghoulishly good bangers:
Chase & Status x Bou ft Irah x Flowdan x Trigga x Takura – Baddadan
This track has taken the UK by storm by highlighting the side of Drum & Bass that often gets overlooked: the MCs, the Microphone champions that entertain tens of thousands of people every weekend and have been doing so for years. SaSaSaS have been at the forefront of pushing MC Culture forward, and it makes us so happy to see this type of track get so much love from all walks of life.
SaSaSaS x Shabba D x Harry Shotta x Yzer x Tiny K x Inna x Westman x Endo x Kasha B x Manlyk Redz – 20 Seconds To Comply
With so much great talent coming through the Drum & Bass scene, it was only right we picked a handful of the best talent out there and brought everyone together on one song. 20 Seconds literally gives every MC/Vocalist 20 Seconds to do their thing, and they do, showcasing their skills on the mic. That day in the studio was so good; seeing the positive energy in the room and everyone backing each other and helping each other was a moment we will all never forget.
Bou x B Live 247 (aka Evil B) – F8ck Jump Up
Evil B, aka Blive, is so skilful at what he does. He is one of the few MCs that crosses musical genres, and his last album showcased his talent on a whole new level of not just being one of the best MCs in the game, but he could also record some amazing music. His latest outing alongside Bou has literally elevated him to whole new levels, with everyone singing his catchy hook F8ck Jump Up. It’s funny, but so many people look at Jump Up with a sneer, but deep down, they all REALLY LOVE IT…. and so they should; the energy that this music brings to the table is hard to match. Love may it reign.
Hedex x Eksman – Semi Automatic
Eksman, one of the best MCs to ever grace a mic, has captured a whole new audience with his catchy hook, Semi Automatic, even getting superstar DJs like Tiesto playing it in his sets. Just WOW!!!!… That is a moment right there, a moment to savour and when Tiesto played the song in front of 50,000 House & Techno ravers.
Another massive step forward for Vocal-led D&B, one which we are all here for.
SaSaSaS – Anthem
It’s a classic, but we couldn’t not mention Anthem…. The first cartoon-styled music video in D&B and also a track that has been sung back to us wherever we have played across the globe. To see so many people sing along with us to our song is such an amazing feeling. Released many years ago, it still gets played, streamed and purchased to this day. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT.
