BOOM BAP IS BACK, BIGGER AND BOLDER AND BETTER THAN EVER BEFORE. THE GO TO UK HIP HOP FESTIVAL RETURNS FOR ITS THIRD YEAR WITH A CLEAR AND CONCISE MISSION STATEMENT - TO SHOWCASE UK HIP HOP ON THE PLATFORM IT DESERVES AS PART OF A HIP HOP WEEKENDER LIKE NO OTHER.
* J MAN + GV CLIK
‘’The time spent on perfecting this album is clearly highlighted when the eleventh consecutive listen still doesn’t seem excessive’’ Wordplay Magazine.
Known for his multi faceted style, explosive energy, unmatched live shows and some of the best Hip-Hop music to have come out of the UK in recent years, Jman has come a long way since his days of hosting small shows in the South West and even further from his days in Croydon and his Grime roots. Hosting Dubstep raves for some of the biggest names in the scene wasn’t enough for Jman, so he began focusing on Hip-Hop. He was signed by Greasy Vinyl in 2010, fast forward a few years and a critically acclaimed debut album later and its plain to see Jman is destined for great things. The debut album ‘Auranography’ is available to buy from www.greasyvinyl.com and all your favourite record stores, has received rave reviews and has sold all over the world.
TOMMY DOCKERZ (Kettering tourist board)
The original viral swine himself will be revving all the way to Exeter to bring you a night full of binary, mystical iceberg wisdom, & at least 3s on a prison rolly. See Kettering's finest bind and spindle before your very eyes. * WARNING * THERE WILL BE FERRETS AT THIS EVENT.
LEE SCOTT (BLAH RECORDS)
If you fancy yourself as a connoisseur of UK talent then perhaps you’ll recognise Lee Scott from the supergroup Children of the Damned (among many other projects). But if you’ve been living under a rock for the past ten years then listen up, it’s time to school yourself in Runcorn’s finest rapper. Like many once unknown artists Lee clawed his way up the metaphorical hip hop food chain with a work ethic only a Northern man could produce.
Transitioning from the battling community in the early 2000s, Lee first gained recognition in the underground scene alongside MC Salar in the duo Antiheroes. The crew eventually merged into Children of the Damned alongside Bill Shakes and Karlos Jackal, who later went onto create some of the jazziest, funkiest UK Hip Hop ever produced. As well as performing with others Lee has managed to carve a name for himself as a successful solo artist, creating a niche type of hip hop well versed in obscure imagery and intelligent rhyme schemes.
Now the founder of his own label, Blah Records, Lee continues to push his own style of expressive music onto the masses with his latest album Tin Foil Fronts dropping just two days after this event. If that’s not enough for you, or for a bit of preparation in anticipation of it.
This bristol based Hip-Hop DJ has supported and rocked the stage with artists such as GZA, Million Dan, Buggsy, Phi Life Cypher, Mr Thing, Dubbledge, 3 Amigos, Rhyme Asylum, Unusual Suspects, Diversion Tactics, Jazz T, Steel Devils, Mystro, Ramson Badbonez, Split Prophets, and holds down residences at Rhyme & Reason, Contraband Sessions and Weapon of Choice.
SHAOLIN MONKEYS 'Rai Man, Dubbidy, Moo' with DJ Rogue1Josh (Backyard Boogaloo)
Shaolin Monkeys are an Underground Hip Hop movement based in Bournemouth, under the KBU Records label. For the last 2 Years they have been smashing up sets locally and out of town. The diversity of the Shaolin Monkeys ranges greatly through the team, from the laid back style of Dubbidy to the fast metaphorical flow of Moo to the deep concepts of Rai Mans bars. Prepare for the monkey business!

Rinsulin & Dj Subindex
When he's not cooking up another boom bap banger in the lab or writing quick-witted battle bars for Don't Flop you can catch Rinsulin causing mischief at One Lion events hyping up the crowd with mad multi syllabics and flows that will screw up your Nan's hearing aid!
