“Music that’s bursting with colour and invention, The Scribes are set for big things” – BBC Introducing
The Scribes are a multi-award winning hip hop group based in the South West consisting of lyricist/producer Ill Literate, rapper Jonny Steele and beatbox maestro Lacey. The group’s unique talents have combined to make a trademark sound unlike any other, featuring a seamless blend of live instrumentation and sampling set against a block rocking backdrop of booming bass and boom bap breaks.
Known for critically acclaimed performances full of energy, beatboxing and off the cuff freestyling, The Scribes have become festival favourites across the UK, regularly gracing the stage at Glastonbury Festival, Wilderness Festival, Boomtown Fair, Urban In Ibiza, Shambala Festival, Bearded Theory, Leopallooza and many more.
The group’s extensive touring has seen them perform and collaborate with some of the biggest names in hip hop including Macklemore, Dizzee Rascal, Kelis, Lethal Bizzle, Example, De La Soul, Wu Tang Clan, Wiley, KRS One, Pharoahe Monch, Four Owls, Goldie, MF Doom, Sugarhill Gang and Chase and Status to name (drop) but a few.
