Proving it’s not always grim up North, Manchester-based production team THE MOUSE OUTFIT‘s jaw-dropping lyrical acrobatics and smooth grooves are a smorgasbord of soul, jazz, funk and reggae made all the better by not taking itself too seriously, putting a grin on your face.
This is one slick helluva hip hop production team from Manchester led by Chini (Producer/keyboards), Defty (Bass)+ Pitch (Producer/MPC/Percussion) featuring a 9-piece live band with drums, horns, bass, keys, percussion, guitar and a rotating roster of Manchester’s most talented MCs.
Expect an eclectic style of hip hop tinged with some extremely tight jazz musicianship from an extremely talented band gives them a very old-school golden age vibe before it was invaded by pop. A slick combination of quality samples and fiendish beats.
Their debut 19 track album ‘Escape Music’ was released in May 2013 featuring Black Josh, Dr Syntax, Dubbul O, Fox, Kosyne, Lyricalligraphy, Sparkz, DJ Sammy B-Side and Truthos Mufasa. It won the Wordplay magazine ‘Album of the Year’ award.
Their second album ‘Step Steadier’ was released in 2015 featuring Dr Syntax, Cutterz, Dubbul O, Ellis Meade, Jman, Fox, Verb T, Sparkz, Tman and Truthos Mufasa. It was included in the ABC News ‘Top 50 albums of 2015’.
This was such an ace show last time!!
