Bio

Welcome to the world of R.i.P!!

mmm, ok, Iv been rapping for about 7 years or so, and been a producer for 10 years.

First got into emcee'ing when i was 13, live on stage at a weekly under 18s happy hardcore night in Dundee called the colliseum. I got this (unpaid) job after asking the other resident mc if i could take a shot. The following week i was on stage! This lasted approx 3 months before the night was shut down.

I first got into production at around 15 when i was writting dance riffs on cheap keyboards, and got the opportunity to take my idea's to a dance producer at the then ESL studio's in Dundee. It was from this that the producer in me emerged, and continued producing dance till i was 20.

Thats when i moved onto Hip Hop productions and scratching with battle breaks. a few guys from where i grew up were writting rhymes and i quickly found my passion in writting for the mic again.

8 Years on and i finaly find myself with an E.P that i released on 14th March this year, called "The Just Vibe E.P". 7 Tracks picked from many, to compile a debut release, which has already had Radio 1 Airplay!! and has recieved amazing reviews from the Daily Record, and local telegraph as well.

in April, i managed to fight of 60 applicants and was picked as 1 of 8 finalist's in Tay FM's Battle of the Band. Ironicly i was the only guy NOT a band.

My influences for what i do, apart from the pure love of song-writting, is to create music that grabs your attention and makes you think and feel, contemplate other viewpoints, be it on yourself or others, using my own experience on this earth, and the massive want for a fatter vibe to emerge from scottish underground music!!!

I produce my own beats/recording in my home studio, and have brand new releases on the way, which will be singles from the forthcoming Just Vibe L.P by the end of this year!

The album is a FREE DOWNLOAD so go on, cop yourself a copy and turn p the volume!!!

Peace and Love
