London Posse 30th Anniversary Tour – First Shows in Over 20 Years   Sunday 21st May @7pm – The Jazz Cafe, London NW1 7PG – SOLD OUT Monday 22nd May @7pm – The Fleece, Bristol BS1 6JJ Tuesday 23rd May @7pm – Rebellion, Manchester M1 5WZ Thursday 25th May @7pm – Cargo, London EC2A 3AY – JUST ADDED   NO ID = NO ENTRY “A musical Molotov cocktail” NME “Absolutely key to hip-hop arriving and taking off in the UK – legends!” DJ Yoda “Their influence was truly crucial – laid the groundwork for the later grime scene” FACT Magazine “The group’s South London-inspired music still reverberates in the work of their descendants – Roots Manuva, grime MCs like Dizzee Rascal – more than two decades later.” Red Bull Music Academy “The best UK hip-hop album in history. ‘Gangster Chronicle’ puts you inside a world – just as, say, ‘Illmatic’ does” Hip-Hop Connection “Rodney P and Bionic still sound great and totally ahead of the game” CLASH   Before there was Stormzy and Dizzee there was Rodney P & Bionic aka London Posse. Hands down the most influential British rap group of all time. Without London Posse there would be no Grime or UK Hip-Hop as it is today. Before London Posse hit the scene in 1987 it was still commonplace for Britain’s aspiring MCs to rhyme with American accents. London Posse came from sound system culture and it showed. British accents rhymed in a ragga style over hard hitting beats that would have won any late 80’s sound clash. 30 years after their debut single, all three surviving members (Rodney P, Bionic & DJ Billy Biznizz) perform for the first time in 20 years. These are sure to be the hottest tickets of the year so make sure...

No stranger to the live music scene, Doc has toured with De La Soul and Busta Rhymes, and was Mark Ronson’s rapper in his band set-up alongside Amy Winehouse from 2005-2007. Despite a long and wildly successful hiatus in film and television, a return to serious music has proved too much of a pull, as Doc himself says: “It’s the ultimate in unfinished business for me. Music was the dream when I was a kid. This is where I started.” Showcasing songs from his highly anticipated forthcoming album, Stemma. After nearly a full decade since his last serious release, this UK Hip-Hop veteran is sounding fresher and hungrier than ever. Expect killer lines, infectious hooks and barnstorming beats, and of course some special guests. This is not one to be slept...
