♪♫♪♫ – Mr Woodnote Ft. Lil Rhys & Eva Lazarus – ♪♫♪♫
Unmistakably phat, Mr Woodnote, Lil Rhys & Eva Lazarus ignite stages and streets from Bristol to Bombay and beyond. Armed with a saxophone, loop pedals and practically whatever he can get his hands on, Mr Woodnote creates every track, live on the spot, from scratch whilst Rhys and Eva drop their distinctive vocal flavours into the mix. Each with their own back story, Mr Woodnote from Australia, Lil Rhys from Bristol and Eva Lazarus from somewhere in outer space, these three artists found each other through music and the bonds became as tough as the sounds they produce. Notorious street performances, heavyweight stage shows, regular collaborations and never playing the same set twice has been a driving force for the group and enabled their momentum to continuously build. They have supported, and collaborated with a wide array of acts including Dub FX, Foreign Beggars, Pete Philly, Dub Mafia, MC Xander, Snareophobe, Krafty Kutz, Joe Driscoll and Ill Skillz and relish any opportunity to make new and original music with creative and passionate artists.
♪♫♪♫ – Jehst – ♪♫♪♫
Having been at the forefront the UK’s Hip-Hop scene for the past decade and a half, Jehst has asserted himself as possibly the most influential rapper to ever emerge from these shores.
Bursting onto the scene in 1999 with the cult-classic ‘Premonitions’, the independently released EP was hailed by critics and fans alike for its poetic vocals and forward-thinking production; launching the now iconic YNR Productions label and the career of this truly inspirational artist.
Pushing the boundaries of his chosen art-form while providing the blueprint for countless sound-alikes, Jehst’s sound has defined a generation. With a discography now stretching into triple figures his career has been typified by a restless creativity and side-projects galore.
With a fiercely loyal fan-base spread not only throughout Europe, but across the Atlantic and as far afield as Australia, Jehst’s reputation is set in stone. Still on the cutting edge in 2015, this cult-hero is building an empire, one brick at a time.
