Multi-award winning hip hop act The Scribes are set to play Swansea’s Bunkhouse on Friday (21 October)

The Scribes’ unique blend of beatboxing, off the cuff freestyling, crowd participation and genre-spanning music has created a critically acclaimed live show quite unlike any other on the scene today, with appeal ranging far beyond traditional hip hop fare.

The performance will be the group’s first show in Swansea since completing a 20 date run of festivals this summer, including slots at the legendary Isle Of Wight FestivalLatitude Festival, Boomtown Festival and Electric Picnic in Ireland, and will be the fifth date on The Scribes’ “Totem Trilogy Part 2” EP launch tour. 

The group have gained a huge following on the festival circuit and last month released their new single “The Shipwreck” on US based record label Stay Free Recordings, including a music video filmed aboard the SS Great Britain.

They have consistently proven to be an impressive and engaging live act with recent festival appearances at Latitude Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Isle Of Wight Festival, Wilderness Festival, Electric Picnic, Shambala Festival, Boomtown, Bearded Theory, Beautiful Days and Great Estate Festival and are proud winners of both the Exposure Music Award’s “Best UK Urban Act” and the EatMusic Radio Award’s “Best Live Act”.

The group have also provided original music for BBC and Channel 4 television, and are featured regularly on both national and local radio and media including BBC 1XtraBBC Radio 1 Introducing and BBC Radio 6 Music.

The Scribes are hotly tipped as one to watch, recently signing with Stimulus Management (Nas, Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, Busta Rhymes), and sharing the stage with the likes of Macklemore, Rudimental, Nathan Dawe, Wu Tang Clan, Dizzee Rascal, Kelis, Rag N Bone Man, Example, Lethal Bizzle, The Wailers, Jurassic 5, Sugarhill Gang, KRS One, De La Soul, MF Doom, and Souls Of Mischief 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.
