The Scribes are a multi award winning hip hop three piece whose unique blend of beatboxing, off the cuff freestyling and genre-spanning music has created a live show quite unlike any other on the scene today, with appeal ranging far beyond traditional hip hop fare.
The Scribes are sponsored by independent, ethical and fair trade clothing company THTC (www.thtc.co.uk) alongside artists such as Ed Sheeran and Foreign Beggars and are signed with American record label “Kamikazi Airlines”, based in LA and co-founded by Dizzy Dustin of legendary hip hop act Ugly Duckling, as well as releasing material on UK based label “Reel Me Records” (Laid Blak).
They have consistently proven to be an impressive and engaging live act with recent festival appearances at Glastonbury, Wilderness Festival, Shambala, Urban In Ibiza, Boomtown Fair, Beach Break, Leopalloza, Maui Waui Festival, St Pauls Carnival, Little Orchard Festival, Tunes In The Dunes, Electric Beach, Godney Gathering and many more and have toured extensively across the UK and onto Europe, including slots at prestigious venues such as Camden’s Jazz Café, Cargo, Bristol’s O2 Academy, Peterborough Arena and Italy’s Metaponto Beach Festival.
The Scribes are also proud winners of both the Exposure Music Award’s “Best UK Urban Act” and the EatMusic Radio Award’s “Best Live Act”, and have provided original music for BBC and Channel 4 television, as well as being featured regularly on both national and local radio and media including BBC 1Xtra and BBC Radio 1 Introducing.
The Scribes are hotly tipped as one to watch live dates across the UK and Europe, as well as sharing the stage with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Kelis, The Wailers, Jurassic 5, Rag N Bone Man, Sugarhill Gang, Lethal Bizzle, Macklemore, KRS One, Example, De La Soul, MF Doom, Souls Of Mischief and Wu Tang Clan’s GZA to name (drop) but a few, and are steadily establishing a growing following across the continent to add to their already significant fan base at home.
