[Bristol] GZA (of Wu-Tang Clan) + Special guests, Skitz and Rodney P + more! – Saturday, 18 February

https://www.facebook.com/events/305780589456744/

Rhyme and Reason are delighted to announce the arrival of GZA the Genius + SPECIAL GUESTS!
The legend and founding member of the seminal Wu-Tang Clan comes to Bristol showcasing his impending new album Liquid Swords 2: Return of the Shadowboxer. Come and see the artist responsible for such groundbreaking albums as ‘Words from the Genius’ and ‘Liquid swords’ play Bristol for the last show on his 2012 European tour. Born and bred in Brooklyn NYC, GZA has a discography of both Wu-Tang Clan and solo projects dating back to 1991, GZA is genuinely one of the most raw and thought provoking emcee’s that has ever lived.

 

Joining Gza and his special guests are two pioneers of UK hip-hop. SKITZ and RODNEY P have played shows all over the world. Albums such as ‘Countryman’ and ‘The Future’ have cemented the duo as the godfathers of the UK scene. These veterans put on a show that is truly not to be missed.

 

Spearheading Bristol’s musical revival right now are the Split Prophets. Fresh off their ‘Scribbled thoughts’ e.p launch, SP are rising to the top of the scene because of smart and hard-hitting lyricism twinned with the dynamic production of Krate Krusaders. In case you haven’t heard check the links below to this collective of several of Bristol’s finest emcee’s.

The Scribes are a new-wave hip-hop 4-piece consisting of lyricists ill-iterate and Loki Steele, along with beatboxer Maestro Lacey. Hailing from Bristol and Plymouth, The Scribes unique sound has been earning them rave reviews across the country.

“Genuinely memorable, The Scribes could be what UK Hip-Hop has been looking for” – Hip-Hop Connection magazine.
“The UK’s hottest hip-hop right now” – 24-7 Magazine.

Strictly good hip-hop vibes bought to you by DJ Fingerfood!

Come to the biggest hip-hop show in Bristol for year’s!!!
Tickets £18, available from Monday (19/12/11)

[London] Droppin Science – Saturday February 5th @ Vibe Bar

Facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=187807481244876

Droppin’ Science is back this February at the Vibe Bar with yet another big night in store. Last month resident DJs Matman, Nickname and Daredevil ripped the place apart, blazing through fast-paced sets of hip hop & it’s related genres. In February you can expect all this and more as we will be joined by our very special guest, Paul White (One-Handed Music / Now-Again).

Paul White’s production has been generating a lot of noise in recent years, & won himself a lot of high-ranking fans, gaining airplay & support from the likes of Diplo, Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B and Gilles Peterson. After releasing the acclaimed LPs ‘The Strange Dreams of Paul White’ & ‘Sounds From The Skylight beat tape’ in 2009, 2010′s ‘Paul White & The Purple Brain’ was co-released by both One-Handed and Los Angeles-based Now Again, sister label of the mighty Stones Throw Records.

Check out Paul White’s podcast he produced for Stones Throw records last October: http://www.stonesthrow.com/news/2010/10/stones-throw-podcast-62
