Leinster appointed Andy Tonks to the project for Chaos: "Antony Randall, Tinie's show producer consulted with myself and Alex and led the realisation of Willo's design. Between us we took Perron's design concept of rolling video columns and clad them with Barco Mi-Trix. The columns needed to be mobile to enable them to be rapidly deployed onto a festival stage. Our regular engineering partner KP Martin quickly engineered the basic column structures; we selected Mi-Trix because they are a tried and tested product, and extremely tolerant of the kind of jarring they would be likely to experience as they were wheeled on and around stage. Tinie's production manager Mark Brightmen was insistent the columns should have the same construction standards as something intended for a twelve month world tour."
Robust dependability proved the crucial factor; demand for Tempah is high, besides Hackney he has appeared at Isle of Wight festival, T in the Park, and Phoenix in Dublin. "And his festival tour continues," added Tonks, "with him playing both venues of the V Festivals as well as Mallorca and Ibiza Rocks in August. The fact the columns survived the deluge of the Isle of Wight was something to witness. Visually they populate Tinie's stage with video in a way that breaks convention; they create a very audience friendly platform for Tinie's energetic and engaging urban performance style."
