LIVE SHOW REVIEW
Notts rap duo Ty Healy and Nay Loco (also known as Local Healers) deliver their laid back, bass-heavy and occasionally dreamy beats and flawlessly delivered vocals which perfectly complement the summer weather. Peppered with spontaneous freestyle place-holders while the next track is lined up, there are plenty of esoteric local references and nods and winks to the city and its people. The energy and style is completely contrasting to the previous performances I have seen so far, testament to the diversity of talent and eclecticism of tastes to which Notts is home and nurtures so well. Ty’s persistence in commanding cooperation from the audience (at one point jumping down in to the crowd to join in with the dance) pays off and gets everyone chanting the through line ‘We ain’t going out like that’ in an overt reference to the influence of Cypress Hill. Influences near and far are visited throughout the set; the track 'Corner Shop' sentimentally recalls younger days spent hanging around the local shops, grabbing some pick n mix and occasionally causing a bit of mischief - an overarching message of supporting local businesses and being active in the local community - shout out to Mr Khan from the corner shop. There is even a nod to Ice Cube on 'It Was A Good Day' in the appositely timed track, Summertime. If a somewhat tentative crowd at the beginning of the performance aren’t convinced initially, they definitely are now.
