One year and one day after his sellout Rhyme and Reason debut in Bristol, We are delighted to welcome back Christopher Martin better known as DJ PREMIER. One half of legendary duo Gangstarr, he is The man Rolling Stone magazine named the best hip-hop producer ever. Last time in Bristol he played a two hour set and we've been told to expect more of the same this time round. Its not usually our custom to book US artists twice in succession, but we've made an exception given how good the last show was.
Joining Primo will be Bristol turntablist SIR BEANS OBE. A fellow DJ and beatmaker, Beans has been a member of groups Transcript Carriers and Parlour Talk which have received national acclaim. Expect a mix of classic and new school tunes of the funky hip hop persuasion mixed to military precision.
UPFRONT MC is one of Bristol's best hip hop MC's. His group Split Prophets, have become one of the most influential groups in UK hip hop. Following the success of 2 solo e.p's and a host of Prophets material, He is about to bring out his first solo L.P. AS usual he will be backed by his DJ and Producer Badhabitz (Krate Krusaders)
It gives us great pleasure to give an R+R debut to MistaFire MC from the most slept on crew in the country, Se Fire. The hard hitting lyricist makes a rare Bristol appearance to showcase both new material and classic Se Fire bars.
R+R resident and flyer artist DJ Fingerfood is once again on the ones and twos. The 4 owls DJ is becoming the busiest man in UK hiphop, playing multiple shows, making beats and launching clothing label Squared Roots.
Tickets go on sale next week for £14. They will be available from Bristol Ticketshop (both online and in store) and a variety of local shops.
Thankyou for supporting live music in Bristol, and thanks for supporting Rhyme and Reason
