‘To see Inkrument live is to understand the dynamic of the group a lot more – it’s not your average hip hop show (no screw faced, cocky MC’s demanding respect for turning up) but a carefully planned out musical journey, incorporating not only the beats and rhymes, but beatboxing, guitar, scratch routines, crowd participation and energy’ – Dealmaker
