Dr Syntax and Pete Cannon
Dr Syntax and Pete Cannon have been touring as an MC and DJ duo since 2010, and they have recorded an album, ‘Killer Combo’, due for release in early 2014.
Both reputed solo artists in their own right, together they combine witty lyricism, gob-smackingly banging beats and general tomfoolery to great effect. Dr Syntax has been a well-known face on the UK hip hop scene since he appeared on Foreign Beggars’ ‘Asylum Speakers’ album in 2004. Since then he has released numerous albums (including 2012’s ‘A Slice Of Fried Gold’ with Tom Caruana) and done countless shows worldwide. Recently he has been gaining a whole new level of exposure as frontman for acclaimed Manchester hip hop band The Mouse Outfit, whose debut album ‘Escape Music’ dropped in May and features Syntax heavily.
Blackpool-born Pete Cannon has had an incredibly prolific year, having produced for top UK rap acts such as Dirty Dike, Lunar C and Verb T, a single with Detroit rap legend Guilty Simpson (‘This Year’), releasing numerous projects and even producing a top 10 chart hit for Rizzle Kicks (‘Lost Generation’). You would be hard pressed to find anyone more enthusiastic about music, and on top of this, he has the most elaborate haircut in UK hip hop.
