The first UK based act to sign with US label Kamikazi Airlines, The Scribes are a new wave hip hop four-piece consisting of co-lyricists Ill Literate and Loki Steele, beatbox maestro Lacey and turntablist Kenny Hectyc, whose unique talents have combined to make a much heralded sound quite unlike any other in the scene today.The Scribes push the limits of the genre to almost breaking point, mixing live instrumentation with traditional hip hop sampling and bolstering beautiful and moving musicianship to block rocking beats, creating an intricate yet booming backdrop for the MCs quickfire flows.
The latest track from The Scribes camp ‘Positive Vibes’ showcases Chicago/Oxford stalwart Astro Snare providing a reggae tinged boom bap backdrop for the Scribes lyricists Jonny Steele & Ill Literate. Check out the video below.
