Granville Sessions bring a healthy combination of heavy rhyme styles, sample based productions and live instrumentation; a must-see for any discerning music head.
Two Essex boys a Brummie & a Londoner.
With individual musical influences including genres such as Punk, Drum & Bass, Funk, Hardcore & Reggae
and no preconceived bullshit, it didn't take long before those influences began to merge into a thick broth of filth and nastiness.
The music they create represents the city in it's realest sense. An uncontrolable beast with a hunger that consume's anything in it's wake.
Broken Chakra represents the battle of life & decay. Amorality wrestles with conscience. One state changes to another.
No Daleks are allowed in the building.
Just hands, ears, feet & vocal chords producing energy.
High Tempo. Power. Precision.
Profit is one of a few emcees to have successfully transcended musical genres. Beginning his career as a Garage emcee and successfully navigating the ranks to earn the respect of clubbers and his peers as a quick tongued lyricist with a conscious thought pattern. His entrance to Drum & Bass came from a signing to a London based independent D & B label which also projected him into the realms of production and engineering. This injection again saw him climbing the ranks of the Drum & Bass scene and solidifying a good reputation and proving his abilities as an energetic, consistent and professional performer.
A few years later he was invited to perform with the some of the UK Breakbeat scenes biggest names, giving him a great jumping board into the scene. Having the background of both Garage and Drum & Bass allowed him to enter comfortably into the motions of the music and working with some of the scenes biggest names rapidly became one of the scenes top emcees. Seeing several releases involving him emerging quickly only cemented his name and reputation one again.
Around the same time as his entrance to Breakbeat, Profit felt it was time to get into the type of lyricism that had inspired him all those years ago and began working on his Hip Hop style. Already having a reputation for conscious lyrics the battle had already been waged now the things would really get interesting.
In 2005 he released his first Hip Hop CD, a five track EP which placed him in the eye of his peers and since has continued to work on both the Breakbeat and Hip Hop with names such as Mechanoise, Jay Cunning, Def Inc as well as Skitz, Scratch Perverts, The Nextmen many others. His background of engineering and producing lead him to write a soundtrack to a fashion film shown on the Home video screen in Leicester Square in 2002 resulting in winning the GMI award for “Best Soundtrack” to the “Best Film”
