On the flyer for the show, one of the 14 (!) artists on the bill, Wiley, promised

Showtime is gonna be when we do what Shabba and Yellowman and Ninja did back in the day. Kids are gonna watch it in a hundred years and think »I wish I was there.«

Now that the first installment of The Heatwave‘s »Showtime« went down, it looks like Eskiboy didn’t promise too much. The web is full of raving reviews:

Showtime’s debut was as huge as it said it would be. [...] Showtime gets a musicovered score of 10/10.

Dancehall is alive and kicking and it’s dwelling in East London!!!!! [...] This is the type of event that needs to be witnessed to be believed. [...] Thank you Heatwave for turning back the clocks for me – I feel all 18-ish!!!!
– via Prezedent

It really was one of those once in a lifetime occasions. [...] Legends past and present with hot upcoming artists = Murderer.

I wish I was there and I can’t wait for that video to drop, so I can watch it for the next hundred years.

Huge respect to Gabriel and his crew! Looking forward to link up again at this year’s Notting Hill Carnival the latest.
