An icon in our hometown, it seems as if Josh has been around for a decade but he’s nowhere near done. First proper attention for Josh came from his album #blahblahblackjosh almost 5 years ago but since then he’s released countless EP’s and a couple more albums in amongst that. The most versatile rapper in the north let alone the 016, his discography consists not just of solo work but with collabs with numerous manny artists and multiple tracks with Blah Records favourites Milkavelli and Lee Scott. Not to mention a remix of the classic ‘Poison’ with previous guests Stella Beats’ PK Brako. He’s just released arguably the best album of this school term showing his insane versatility once again. Check that right away if you ain’t already. Whether it’s his own stuff, Levelz, Mouse Outfit or Cult of the Damned work, Josh will shell no matter what. 31/01/19
It’s more than an honour to have got the 21st century Big Poppa down to one of our shows. This guy really is Next Up and if you haven’t heard of him already you’re sleeping.
Dan came up on our radar with his 2015 EP Art Attack. In 2016 he then released a range of tracks on Soundcloud alongside giving arguably the hardest performance on a Colours show ever, go and fucking check that. After plotting for a little while, tracks ‘When I’ and ‘La La Land’ have come out in 2018, the latter is one of his best. Dan’s recent music video for ‘Roll the Dice’ shows he’s not just about the mic either. OG has already shut down shows for Places + Faces, as well as supporting Casisdead and our previous headliner Sam Wise. On another Bristol debut VOL2 is your best opportunity to see him take the stage for himself before he explodes. Cause he will.
British Hip Hop. There couldn't be a better guy to set things up for the evening, one of the coldest accents about, accompanying smooth, classic beats you can't go wrong. 'About Me' - That in a nut shell. Brand new track 'Tick" lets you all know what you should be repping on your feet. Not just the music either GB is a killa with the visuals as well showing a variety of concepts on his videos. Set to own the stage showcasing his mad beats n bars, come down a bit earlier than normal to catch a glimpse of this crazy talent
