[London / Brighton] Das Racist @ XOYO, London & The Haunt, Brighton – Thurs 1st & Sat 3rd December
One Inch Badge presents:
Das Racist is an Art Rap/Freak Folk/World Music duo based in Brooklyn, New York, comprised of Queens-born Himanshu Kumar and San Francisco-born Victor Vazquez. The two met at Bard Art College in Massachusetts, where Victor was Himanshu’s resident advisor in a “Students of Color for Social Justice” themed Freshman year dormitory.
After a couple of years of occasional drunken freestyles with each other, Himanshu and Victor decided to record a couple of raps together.
The first of which was called “We Made It” and immediately became a hit amongst stupid assholes who like rap from the 1990s and really want that shit to keep happening. The second track was called “Fever” and it was fucking terrible – really bad. Then they made some other songs and then they made “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” which is the one that everyone likes and then they made some other songs.

[Brighton] Ugly Duckling Live @ The Haunt – Saturday 15th October
One Inch Badge presents:
They’re still here. After five albums and more than a decade of touring, Ugly Duckling continues to make music with independence and integrity. While most people in the entertainment business are constantly attempting to reinvent themselves, UD has remained happily naïve when it comes to the latest industry attitudes, fashion trends, and state-of-the-art production techniques preferring instead to develop and stand by their own signature sound. “We’ve seen so many phases come and go that it all seems silly to us now,” says Andy. “Good music and top level live performance are really our only
Young Einstein, Dizzy Dustin and Andy Cooper formed Ugly Duckling way back in 1993 in their hometown of Long Beach, California. Growing up in the 1980s, they were raised on a classic hip hop diet but were especially influenced by the mostly New York-based and production-focused groups of the late 80’s and early 90’s (such as A Tribe Called Quest, The Beatnuts, Diamond D, Gangstarr, etc.)
This show is an absolute must for all fans of hip-hop and good times!
